Fishing Controls & How to Fish in Nier Replicant​

Once you have reached the correct fishing spot, you will see the fishing icon on the top right of the screen. Press the fishing button (O/B) and select your bait of choice. You can refer to the above table for the required bait. A line is automatically cast once the bait is selected.

During all this action of pulling back the stick in the opposite direction of fish movement, you will observe depleting energy bar of fish at the bottom of the screen. If you do it the right way, the energy bar will be depleted more quickly. Once the energy bar is Zero (0), the fish will be caught automatically.
