Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon Guide to Build a Fishing Empire

Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon is a surprisingly complex idle clicker game for mobile devices. While the main goal is simply catching as many fish as you can, there are a variety of factors that can influence your ability to succeed. You will need to gain experience, recruit crew members, upgrade your boat, and unlock abilities. Of course, you will also need a lot of gems and money if you are to afford all of these things. Initially, we shared some tips and tricks that would help players master the basics of the game. If you are still trying to understand how everything works, you can read our previous guide, that we shared a few days ago. However, if you want a more in-depth discussion on how to get fishing experience, how to acquire more gems and how to get the right crew members, then go ahead and read our latest Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon tips and tricks, right after the jump.

1. How To Get Fishing Experience

Claiming fishing experience is this game’s equivalent of prestige in most other idle clickers. It will send you back to the first map and reset all skill and boat upgrades but you will have multipliers depending on how much total fishing experience you have acquired. Aside from the multiplier bonus, you will also have an increase chance of encountering the Big One in each map depending on how high your fishing experience is. Understanding how to get more experience is key to your success in Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon.

The amount of experience you gain is influenced by two things. The first is the number of fish you catch while playing. That refers to the fish that you see jumping into your boat. The hypothetical fish you catch while offline does not count. The second factor that influences experience gain is the rarity of the map you are fishing in. The more advanced the map, the more experience you get per fish caught. Take note that it is still dependent on the number of fish you catch so even if you go to the most advanced map available, if you don’t stay online long enough to catch fish, you won’t earn any experience.

The best way to continuously earn experience is to take advantage of your crew members. Just keep your phone running by turning off the auto-sleep feature then leave it plugged in to a charger. Your crew will continue to catch fish for you, which in turn helps you get more experience. Keep in mind that you also earn a star for every new type of fish that you catch. The stars you collect together with your current fishing experience will determine your total multiplier.

2. How To Get More Gems

Gems are the premium currency of the game. They can be used for various things but their most important function is to unlock additional members of the crew. Of course, you will also need to spend gems if you want to upgrade the skills of your existing crew members. After recruiting a handful of people, you will probably notice the exponential rise in gem costs for your next hires. You will need a whole lot of coins if you want to be able to continuously hire and upgrade crew members.

The best way to get gems for free is through the floating treasure chests. Opening them will reward you with random amounts of gems if you agree to watch an ad. Be careful when dismissing the chest screen. If you tap on the X button, the chest will disappear and you will no longer be able to retrieve it. Just tap anywhere outside the chest pop up to dismiss it. If you want to be able to collect a lot of chests without having to pick them up yourself, hire a crew member that summons buoys. Any chest that comes in contact with a buoy will automatically be picked up. Then you will just need to open it once you come back. There is a limit to the number of unopened chests you can have so make sure you return once in a while to open them all up.

Another way to get more gems in Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon is to win the jackpot from the wheel. It lets you spin for free once a day but you can keep watching advertisements to get more turns. Every spin you make that does not give you a jackpot will add one gem to the total pot. It will keep building up until you win so just keep spinning the wheel to eventually get a whole lot of gems. Don’t worry about your crew while you are watching ads for the wheel because they will continue to fish even while you are busy.

Lastly, you can get more gems by completing quests. You will be given tasks that you need to accomplish. Every time you complete these tasks, you will be rewarded. The rewards are usually just a few gems at a time but with the amount you need, every little bit counts.

3. How To Get New Crew Members

Having the right crew members is crucial to your progress in Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon. As mentioned above, you will need a lot of gems in order to recruit and upgrade your crew. With the exception of the first two, crew members will be unlocked at random. The cost of hiring additional people will increase depending on the number of crew members you already have. It would be better if you could somehow choose the person you want instead of just randomly unlocking people until you find the one with the right skills.

There is a way to pick which crew member you want but you will have very limited time to do so. Whenever you reach a map for the first time, you will receive an offer to unlock two specific characters. You will be able to see the two options and what their skills are. The catch is that you will only have ten minutes to unlock them. That is hardly enough time to earn more gems so it is important that you have enough gems to unlock new characters before you enter a new map.

Building a fishing empire is not an easy task but you can definitely succeed if you follow our Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon ultimate strategy guide! As always, if you have anything to add, don’t hesitate to drop us a line below in the comments!
