The Sims 4 Fishing Skill

Bait, Fish List, & Guide to The Best Fishing Spots

The Sims 4 Fishing Skill - a Sim Catching Fish
This Guide to Fishing will help you Catch Every Fish

The Sims 4's Fishing Skill allows your Sim to catch fish and make loads of fast cash. Completing the Fish Collection is a goal many Simmers would like to achieve, and I aim to help with that by providing fishing spots for the hardest to catch fish. We'll also go over what you can do to make your fishing efforts better, and other useful things you can catch other than the fish themselves. If you already know about the skill and want to see the Fish themselves, Jump to the Fish List, but also read the Best Fishing Spots section below it!

Sims 4 Patch: Fishing Overhaul

A video covering the fishing changes in the patch that came with Island Living. Its impact on the skill is noticeable, and rare collectibles are easier to find. Money making is a bit more even, however reduced.

A Note on The Free Patch and Island Living Expansion

Island Living introduces fish traps and the ability to fish from water canoes. At the same time, the developers overhauled the fishing skill to make its unlocks a bit more interesting. Sims can now mentor in fishing and share tips, among other things. The level up list below should make it clear what abilities you get from fishing regularly vs with the Expansion installed.

Getting Started in Fishing

Head to one of the signs next to a body of water. This is a fishing spot, and will allow your Sim to start developing the skill. As you level, not a lot unlocks, but know that your chances of catching the most valuable fish increase substantially with each level. Know that to fully complete your Fish Collection, you will have an easier time with level 10 Handiness as there is a Fish is reliably caught in Forgotten Grotto that can only be accessed with Level 10 Handiness. The other area, Sylvan Glade, also has rare fish but is accessible to all Sims.

The Angling Ace Aspiration ties directly to Fishing
Unlocking Angler's Tranquility makes Fishing Therapeutic for Sims

Good Traits and Aspirations for Fishing

  • Genius - This will help Sims get Focused, which can be amplified a bit by the Trait below when Sims' Needs are also met. Don't select it just for this unless you will also pursue Mental Skills, as Geniuses get upset if they do not work on those types of Skills for a time. However, Angler's Tranquility from the Angling Ace Aspiration can make the negative Moodlet from this go away!
  • Loves Outdoors - This will help your Sim be Happy when Outdoors, and being Happy is believed to help increase Skill gains. It will also work with any other Positive Moodlets and let your Sim fish a little longer before their needs send them home.
  • Angling Ace Aspiration - Completing this Aspiration will get you a load of Satisfaction, while also making Negative Moodlets disappear while fishing through the Angler's Tranquility Reward Trait.

Skill Unlocks

Here are the few things that unlock as you raise your Sim's Fishing Skill Level:

  • Level 1 - Catch Fish, Mount them, and put them in Fish Bowls
  • Level 2 - Catch Bass, Koi, and Trout
  • Level 3 - Sims can Fish with Bait and gain the Examine Water ability on Fishing Spots. If you own Island Living, you can catch fish using Fish Traps (max 2) in ocean water.
  • Level 4 - Can Catch Catfish and Tilapia. Chance of catching treasure increases.
  • Level 5 - Catch more rare fish like the skeleton fish, "Captain Fishbones" Bonefish. Can now fish in any weather, and while uncomfortable, tense, or stressed.
  • Level 6 - Can Catch Rainbow Fish. Share Fishing Tips unlocks as a social ability, helping others to level the skill. If you own Island Living the amount of traps you can use is upped to 4.
  • Level 7 - Can now catch Anglerfish. Can share information on the rarest fish when asked about fishing spots. With Island Living your Sim is now more adept at deep sea fishing and can catch Bluefin tuna.
  • Level 8 - Teach other Sims to fish.
  • Level 9 - Can now "Angle for Big Catch" and share Expert Fishing Tips with other Sims.
  • Level 10 - A true master of the fishing craft. The most elusive and difficult sea creatures prove no match, and other Sims envy your finesse and technique. In addition, your Sim has mastered the art of trapping and can now have a maximum of 6 Fish Traps. The legendary Golden Mahi Mahi can now be found in appropriate ocean waters.

Social Functions

Talk about Bait and local fishing spots are two fishing socials that can be handy. Sims can also be mentored in fishing. Other Sims may provide you advice on fish baits and types of fish to fill out the notebook with helpful information. Fishing is also now a join/invite type activity, and you'll gain small amounts of relationship while fishing with each other (even though they won't really talk).

Displaying Fish Trophies

Fish Bowls let your Fish shrink and become Immortal! :P

Putting Fish in Bowls
You may want to keep some of your catches alive. To do this, you must first find a Fish Bowl in Buy Mode > Objects by Room > Study > Indoor Activities. You can also search Fit4Fish. The bowl costs $60 and will magically shrink fish to accommodate them, while also making them immortal. The Freshness of the Fish does not matter: a rotten, dead fish will live on to serve as decoration for your home.

Mounting Fish
To Mount a Fish, click it in your Inventory. Each will create Confident Decor based on the catch, from 2-4 each. Mounting or putting 15 fish in Fish Bowls is part of the Angling Ace Aspiration.

Click to Enlarge. Mounted Fish give off a Confident Aura.

Fishing with Bait

In The Sims 4, Fish do not require specific bait, but rather types of Bait. Fishing with Bait is better than without and seems to give you a better rate of catches, regardless. Certain types of Fish will only reliably appear at a Fishing Spot if your Sim is using bait. Bait types for each Fish that require it are discussed in the Fish List, below.

Bait raises effective skill level, meaning your Sim catches at a higher rate while using it. It also shifts the odds of specific fish, when you're using the correct kind of bait. Only a handful of fish really require bait if at all. But catch rates can be so low that you will want it if you're trying to finish a collection.

To get bait, you can harvest wild plants or pursue Gardening yourself. If you plant some for catching Fish, go for something that grows fast like herbs, as you want big stacks so you don't run out. Additionally, you can use your own catches as bait - some Fish want a medium-sized fish, like the Catfish, which itself eats any kind of Plant Bait. A recommend means of bait for one Rare Fish is to Look for Frogs in Ponds (Parks in Oasis Springs and Willow Creek have them). It's not super-reliable and requires you to queue up the action many times, but it's one of the best ways to get up stacks of specific types of frogs for using them as bait. Ideally, you want at least 4-5 in a stack so that you do not immediately run out of bait once you start fishing. The Ponds are a great way to get common Frogs, for the fish do not care about the rarity of the frog.

Ponds let you get Frogs for bait to catch a Wolf Eeel
Frogs are Bait for Wolf Eels, and Ponds are a Great Place to Find Them

Examine Water

Examine water unlocks at level 3. When you use this ability, which is best done when Focused, you will get an idea of what types of fish lurk at that spot and may learn what types of bait they use. When it fails, there's no message. I think that if it fails you may not get to try again, but it's sensible to use it before you begin fishing as it can help to fill out the notebook over time with information.

Fish Traps (Island Living)

The Sims 4 Island Living features fish traps which can catch fish automatically
Island Living's Fish Traps catch fish automatically.

The Sims 4 Island Living introduces Fish Traps, which can be found under outdoor activities objects. These new traps can be baited just like your pole, and will attract fish based on the bait you use. It's still random, but it helps improve your odds of specific fish. What's more, there are three places you can put fish traps: shoreline water (ankle deep), snorkeling depth water (shallow), and deep water (where you scuba). Each of the three has a separate fish list that determines what you'll catch, so placing them further out may be of use to you.

Before you go placing tons of these, you need level 3 Fishing to place 2, which expands to 6 by level 10 in the skill. Fish Traps take about 40-48h to fill, though sometimes they are full earlier. You can harvest them at half, but it's strongly suggested you let them fill up as it's inefficient on time, money, and bait. You can check trap to determine how full the traps are getting.

Canoe Fishing (Island Living)

Island Living features the ability to fish off a boat
Want to fish off a boat? Island Living will let you.

Island Living lets you fish off boats. Buy a canoe in outdoor activities, place it on your lot. Now your Sim can load it into their inventory and select a spot of water, "Sail here". Once you're out in the water, you can click the canoe to use a fishing interaction - all your normal ones, even Aquatic Lure (mermaid ability).

Be aware there are two places you can fish off a canoe - deep water and shallow water. There is a large visual difference between the two, as you can see through shallow water but not the deep. The top left neighborhood in Sulani has deep water, as does Mua Pel'am, but the resort area has no deep water.

Aquatic Lure (Mermaid Ability in Island Living)

Island Living's Mermaids can greatly improve fishing with their Aquatic Lure
Aquatic Lure improves fish catch rates at any fishing spot, even a canoe.

Island Living's Mermaids can use an ability called, "Aquatic Lure" on fishing spots. This costs 30 hydration, so top off before you use it. When this spell is cast, the Sim pulls out a big conch and blows. The horn sounds and a glow appears on the fishing spot. Now fishermen at this spot fish as though they're 2 levels higher, and fish catch rates are improved (as opposed to treasure/seaweed). This effect lasts at minimum several hours.

Endangered Species

Island Living's got several endangered species.
Catching an Endangered fish like the Golden Mahi Mahi may result in fines, but they sure look nice on a wall. Nearby Sims will get mad at you for keeping one.

Sometimes when fishing in Island Living, you'll catch an endangered species. You are given a prompt, either keep it or throw it back. You do not need to keep it for it to count toward collecting, but you will need to if you want to sell it or mount it on your wall. Keeping the fish with other Sims nearby results in a relationship hit, and you may end up with a fine for doing so. The fish list below has all the endangered fish I'm aware of, but here they are for your convenience: Golden Mahi Mahi, Leopard Shark, Butterflyfish, Bluefin Tuna, Royal Sabrefish.

* Values listed are based on our catches. You may find them higher or lower. Sturgeon is the most profitable Fish, hands down.

Outdoor Retreat Fish Additions
Seen in the table above, Outdoor Retreat adds 5 new catches to the Fish List. You'll find Walleye, Yellow Perch, Red and Blue Crawdads, and the extremely valuable Mountain Lionfish. The last two are rare and are likely only caught in the Deep Woods, at the Waterfall spot near the Hermit's House. Mountain Lionfish can be low value, or nearly $1k in value. They do not require any particular bait to catch.

Many Fishing Spots offer the Same Fish.
Four other Spots can help you Finish your Fish Collection

Where to Catch Every Fish (List/Maps of all Fishing Spots)
Playalot, Mr and Mrs. Flynn Arrowstarr created the following PDF which shows all neighborhoods, and the types of fishing spots you can find there. At the bottom, there is a list of the types of fish found in the various types of spawners. I have plans to convert this to HTML, but for now will just let people view it in this format as that may take some time.

I just caught a rainbow fish at deep woods using a carrot.
I caught a tilapia in the willow creek river with parsey
I caught the new fish that came with the wellness pack, Exotic goldfish, . I used Cichlid as bait at Sylvan Glade by the waterfall.
You can also buy it in the new aquarium that comes with spa day, it counts that you caught
it if you put it in your inventory.Wink
ut only some fish.....Unsure
I caught a Treefish using perch at Sylvan Glade by the waterfall.
I found Tetra
I caught a Red-Tailed Black Shark in Willow creek park, by the middle fishingpost by the lake. I used Piranha as bait.
You can get piranha at the same place by fishing with a M sized fish (Cichlid or Trout for me). Yay, my last fish, collection completed! Laugh
You can also catch discus fish in Oasis pond wit muckleberry.
I caught it also in Oasis Spring Park pond with no bait, but Fishing skill 9.
caught wolf eel in willow creek park using frog as bait. (Fishing lvl 5 or 6)
Caught an Angelfish at the Willow Creek River with a Bass as bait yassss
Same One of my sims died and I got to level 10 fishing and used a bass as bait and instantly caught an angelfish
caught all but 1 if anyone knows what BAIT TO USE TO CATCH A Mountain Lion fish
I used catfish
what does the freshness level count for?
the freshness of a fish is similar to the freshness of fruits and veggies from plants. If your cooking skill isn't very high then the quality of your food is effected by the quality of your ingredients. Also the higher the quality the higher the sale value.
Mekia Lesliesays...
I can't find a Trout anywhere! And it's driving me insane MadMad I've fished at the Oasis Spring's pond like it tells you to, But I just can't find it! Anyone know any other places??
Sylvan Glades by the waterfall. Smile
I caught angler with koi
Treefis with lemon both in sylvan galde waterfall spot
Amanda Hartsays...
My sim kids catch tree fish without bait alot.
You can catch rainbow fish, tilapia, discuss, cichlid, anglerfish, wolf eel, angel fish, guppies, minnows, trout, and catfish in Willow Creek. Go to the library and go down behind it to the left. There are three fishing areas there. The first one is where I caught all the above. Mind you, the rare fish took quite a bit of time and the right bait.
anyone have a for sure bait on the red-tailed black shark I have been using small fish but still nothing
Small poor bait is the best. I always have trouble catching this fish but have most success in the small stream at the front of Oasis Springs Park.
I just found out there are codes to spawn the fish if you are having a hard time try these just give yourself space for the fish to spawn if you spawn them at your house you can drag them to your inventory

it didn't spawn the walleye i tried multiple times Sad
Admin: Recent pacth removed the spawning cheat
Tips n Tricks:
I have a chef in my household. I found that their are times where she wants to cook a particular meal which sometimes contains a fish. Since You can never guarantee you will catch a particular fish in time for dinner i came up with a system. As stated earlier, the freshness of a fish will not decay as long as they are place in a fishbowl/tank. So while fishing i would usually place a few of the fishes commonly used in certain meals in fish tanks for future use. Ie- Blackened Bass, Pan Fried Tilapia, Walleye Surprise, And Grilled Salmon. While You can make most of these dishes with out having all the ingredients, i found that its much cheaper and the quality tends to be higher with fresh ingredients. Lastly, You cannot use mounted fish for cooking. Once mounted the fish will forever stay mounted. Hope this helps out any Fishing Chefs out their.
I store my fish and other collectibles such as herbs,forgs etc in a storage trunk - they don't degrade and are handy whenever they're needed
With the new update to the game this month is the gummie guppie and what I'm guessing is the skeletal fish from the trick or treat challenge. The gummi guppie was easy to aquire as I was able to purchase for the Gumber Fesh Bow (how it's spelled). However, the skeletal fish is illusive and labeled rare. Has anyone found this yet?
I caught the gummie guppy and a skeletal fish using a bait I don't remember in the waterfall area at the Sylvan Glade today, if that helps. (Sorry if I don't know the exact names; I'm away from my game.)
Awesome! Thank you! I will try there!
I finally got back to my game and I looked at my sim's catches in his notebook. Definitely from the Sylvan Glade, he caught the gummie guppie using pomegranate and the "Captain Fishbones" Bonefish with a chrysanthemum as bait. If I remember correctly I was fishing by the waterfall for a while before he caught these. Hope this helps and happy fishing! Grin Cool
Kenleigh Deansays...
I caught both the gummy guppy and the skeleton fish at Sylvan Glades (one of the hidden spots) with the bait recommended by checking the waters at the time and just caught another skeleton fish in the deep woods (the hermit's hidden spot), while hunting the blue crawdad, again with just the bait recommended by checking the water... :o)
Caught the red and blue crawdad in hermits hideout using basil.
Please update the fishlist with the latest fish and with the fish from expansions, please! Smile I absolutly loove your guides!! Grin
You're right! I forgot about that but will try to get on it soon so that it's a complete reference. I'll try to see if I'm missing anything else that is important and came from a pack.
Pancake Loversays...
Hi, is there a typo for the sturgeon? Cuz apparently you can get up to 3000 DOLLARS FOR IT!!!
Pancake Loversays...
Spa Day: I caught the following
Cichlid in river by Hallow Slough in Willow Creek
Discus in pond in Sylvan Glade
Exotic goldfish by waterfall in Sylvan Glade
Carl, do you happen to know if there is a limit to which items may be caught while fishing? I caught the camping guitar in granite falls, a pomegranate, cowberry, kitchen upgrade parts and the Llama toy while in The park at the desert local. As well as tulips, snapdragons and apples. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
I don't think there is a limit per say. My sims have caught camping tents, toys, violins, camping chairs, candles/lights, upgrade parts, flowers, fruits.. the list goes on! Smile
Rita Crossthwaitesays...
I had completed my collection until I added spa day and get to work. Now it says I need 5 more fish but can't find the names of them or where to find them. Can anyone help? Thank you, Rita
Hi Rita, if they are the 5 I'm thinking of;
3 of the fish come from Spa Day those 3 are discus, exotic goldfish and cichlid, I have caught them in various fishing spots. The other 2 are the gummy guppy and you can catch this 1 in Sylvan Gladeor buy the new fish bowl and purchase the gummyfish, the other is the bonefish which I don't have yet but mkst say you can catch at Sylvan Glade also. Hope this helps and good luck fishing.
Hey, Carl! You can get Koi at Sylvan Glade, too! :)
Hi Gabriella,I have found koi at sylvan glade from the center pond.
Just caught a pirahna using lily as bait in the sylvan glade pond! I read forums where its taking people 2 sim weeks to catch one, I was actually aiming to get the anglerfish but i'm happy got my fishing aspiration complete :)
