History
Introduced Patch 11.00
Last Adjustment Patch 14.00

The Fishing Rod is a Common & Rare utility item, classified as a melee weapon, that was added on the initial patch of Chapter 2 Season 1. The Fishing Rod can be used to catch fish, weapons, materials, and ammo in water. The Fishing Rod can be found in Chests, Floor Loot, barrels, Supply Drops, and Supply Llamas. The Fishing Rod can be used as many times as you want. The Fishing Rod cannot be stacked, like the Chug Jug and the Storm Flip.

As of the 13.00 patch, you can now "fish" sharks which lets you ski across the water while the fishing rod is wrapped around the shark.

In Patch 14.00, a Rare version was added, known as Pro Fishing Rod. You can fish up different types of fish that requires it, and it also increases the chances of getting better fish and weapons in calm water and Fishing Spots. You can upgrade a normal Fishing Rod for 100 materials each to obtain it.

Fishing

It is possible to use the Fishing Rod on water to pull up items. Simply cast your rod with primary fire (a reticle will appear to aim your bobber) on water, and wait. To catch an item, press primary fire when a fish pulls on the bobber (this will be accompanied by a visual cue and small audio cue) and you will pull up an item.

The fish is not visible when it is approaching or pulling on the bobber. The only feedback you have is the bobber being pulled. Fishing usually takes from approximately 1-10 seconds for a fish to pull on the bobber.

The map is separated into different regions - Coastal, Swamp, Mountainous, and Forest.

Different fish can be found at night from the day.
