Update 0.11.0

Fishing Rods are Tools that were added in Update 0.11.0. They are used in the process of Fishing, in which the Player can catch Fish, or other Items.

Crafting

Usage

To fish, the Player must throw the Fishing Rod into a body of Water, and when the bobber bobs down, the Player must reel in the line (aka hit Fish button) and a Fish may be caught. There is a stream of air bubbles right before the bobber bobs down to indicate that a catch is prominent. 

Fishing Rods can be Enchanted with Lure to increase the speed of catching Items or with Luck of The Sea to increase the times the Player catches treasures. The chance of catching something increases if the Player fishes at nighttime, and even a little more if fishing during rain.

In addition Fishing Rods can also be used to hook Mobs and Players closer, which is useful for pulling them into traps or getting them close enough to hit. It counts as an attack, and does damage to Mobs, so they will react as if they were attacked. However, it takes a long time to kill a Mob using a Fishing Rod.

Wooden Buttons and Wooden Pressure Plates can also be triggered by a Fishing Rod.

Fishing Rods can also be used to reel in other certain entities such as falling Sand, Gravel, Red Sand, and primed TNT.

Trivia

  • Fishing was supposed to be added in Update 0.9.0 but was delayed due to Ocelots being buggy.
  • When the Player uses a rod to reel in an item, the rod uses 3 points of durability. 
  • Version Exclusive: Fishing Rods have 3D (cubic) fishing bobbers.
  • After Update 0.12.1, fishing takes longer than in Update 0.11.0.
  • After Update 0.14.0, the texture of the Fishing Bobbers is more like the PC version.
