Achaea is extremely fun and addictive so be warned by my picture
In Achaea, like I talked about in the last article, there are two different variations of fishing that you can do with your character. There is that of freshwater fishing, and then there is deep sea fishing where you fish off a ship on the ocean. For deep sea fishing, it takes the skill of seafaring to get the ability to fish off a ship. You can do it, but like I said in the last article, you will do much better if you learn the whole skill of Survival, and trans it.
In deep sea fishing, the bait is quite large. You can either buy bait for 250 gold a piece, or fish it in freshwater with smaller bait. The bait you will use are rock bass and marble carps. Like I said, if you catch these in freshwater, you can use them in deepsea fishing. First step is you need to gather some bait for your deepsea fishing.
The bait you can use for fishing is shown below:
You will want to buy the carp and bas for deep sea.
Next, you will need a captain and a ship to fish from. You can ask around for someone to take you out or you could pay for one on the market channel. Ships are very fun and I will write an article on them next. Once you have a captain they will take you out to sea, then when they find a spot they will drop the anchor and the ship will not float away on you. If the ship moves while you are fishing, your line will snap and you will lose the bait and a fish maybe if one was on the line.
Once you are anchored out at sea, it is time to fish. First, you will need to BAIT HOOK WITH <carp or bass>. This will make is so fish will come bite on your line. Next WIELD your POLE, and then CAST LINE SHORT. You want to make sure to cast your line short because with the strength of fish at sea, they will pull your line a lot and if your line gets to around 300 or more feet out, it will break. So if you cast your line short at like say around 50 feet, the you have 250+ feet before the line will snap, as to if you casted at 200 feet where you would only have a 100 or so feet for the fish to take before the line would snap. Now that your line is cast, you can TEASE your LINE occasionally to attract fish. Then, when a fish comes they will nibble on your hook. When this happens you will want to wait under 2 seconds before you TEASE LINE again. (Someone can help you get the timing down because most people use reflexes and triggers for all of this). Then, after that if you do it right, they will come back and make a small, medium, or large strike. When they do this you wait a few seconds and then you JERK POLE. If you do it right again, they will be hooked. You then REEL LINE a lot and eventually you will land your fish. Repeat this for every fish, and then when you get ashore find the fisherman I mentioned in the last article and SELL your fish to them.
It is rumored that they may start giving experience out for the fish you catch, so that it is more like hunting.
Hope you give this a try, and start fishing in Achaea.
