Fishing Break Tips, Cheats & Strategy Guide for Improving Your Fishing Skills

A few weeks ago, we featured some tips and tricks for Rapala Fishing – Daily Catch, which is quite an intensive, realistic mobile fishing game. Most recently, we talked about Fisherman Fisher, which is more on the casual side, but still a rather in-depth experience if compared to other games in the “casual” category. Fishing Break, on the other hand, is ostensibly more casual than either one of those two titles. As you may expect, it’s available for Android and iOS devices alike, and Roofdog Games, its maker, says it is “simple to play yet offers a nice challenge.” There are eight different in-game worlds, 22 fishing spots, achievements “based on dubious puns,” and the option to compete against other human players in the leaderboard. As for the types of fish, the game promises hundreds, including sharks, including “over 200 special elemental fish.”

Okay, so maybe the graphic design has made this game a bit misleading in its depth – maybe it isn’t that casual after all. That’s why we’ve taken the pains to create a Fishing Break strategy guide for you, with some general tips to help you make the most out of this particular mobile fishing experience.

1. You Should Always Catch A Fish

In Fishing Break, there’s no room for mediocrity. Whenever you cast your line into the water, you should always, always try to catch a fish, no matter how small it is. And since bait costs a handsome amount of coins, you shouldn’t rush either when reeling in. Don’t arbitrarily cast your line and wait for fish to bite. Think of it this way – since 10 baits will cost you 1,000 coins, or 100 coins per bait, you should make sure that you’re able to earn more than a thousand coins when using those 10 baits. Then again, even if you don’t make a “profit” this way, the important thing is that you do not waste your bait. Catching a small fish is better than catching nothing at all!

2. Watch Ads To Double Your Earnings

Aside from earning money from the fish you catch, you can also earn money the easy way – the very easy way, to be specific. Watching advertisement videos can double the money you’ve earned, and is best done when you’ve started playing again after being away from the game for a while. As it can be hard to earn money in this game, you will certainly want to watch your fair share of ads.

3. General Tips For Making Money

Actually, there are far more ways to earn money in this game. Aside from catching fish, you also want to watch ads, as we explained in the above tip. This applies for doubling your money from fish and from the museum. When it comes to fishing, you should take place in tournaments and try to rank as highly as possible. Choosing the right lakes to fish in is also important – you want to focus on those lakes where you can easily catch fish without wasting your bait, as well as in the lower lakes in general. Generally speaking, unlocking museums and completing available missions per lake are fantastic ways to earn money, even if the process may seem like a long one.

4. The Best Ways To Catch Fish In The Game

Once you’ve cast your line, you can try waiting for the line to drop as far down as possible. In most cases, a couple fish are going to bite, but if they don’t, you can swipe left or right to move the bait to the corresponding direction. That allows you to cover more ground and leave things open for more fish. After doing this, the next thing to do would be to tap the screen to reel the fish in. The key word here is tap, not tap-and-hold; holding will sacrifice your control when the larger fish bite, and that may cause your line to break. Continue tapping until there’s a light surrounding the fish, which means they’re trying to fight. Stop for a moment, and when the fish stop fighting, continue tapping and they’re all yours.

5. The Line Doesn’t Break When Fish Are Out Of Water

This has yet to be fixed in the game, but once fish jump out of water, that means the line cannot break. You can use this as a bonus tip when dealing with otherwise stubborn, hard-to-catch fish!

6. Don’t Enter A New Area Right After Unlocking It

The temptation to tackle a new area after you unlock it is a very understandable one. After working so hard to unlock that area, it would only seem logical to start fishing in it right away. But that’s not often a good idea. In most cases, your line won’t be strong enough to deal with the larger, tougher fish in that lake, and you’ll likely be fishing for a loss, meaning not earning your bait money (or more) back. What you can do instead is to grind it out in the lake you had last completed; capture additional fish, work on completing collections and accomplishing achievements, and doing what you could to earn money. Once you’ve collected some extra dough, you can then upgrade your fishing equipment so you’re better equipped to handle the newly-unlocked area.

7. Upgrading Your Gear – What Should You Do?

When talking about Fishing Break’s gear upgrades, you want to focus on the “Attack.” Doing so will allow you to catch larger fish, which, of course, means more chances to earn big money. Upgrade your Attack whenever possible; there are other things you can upgrade, but you might want to de-emphasize those as they’re merely icing on the cake. Reel Speed, for instance, doesn’t justify its high cost, though it does help you by allowing you to catch fish faster. Length and Cast, likewise, aren’t worth it either, as you’ll be able to catch some high-quality fish in the early goings without improving those particular areas. It’s really all about the Attack when talking gear upgrades, though the other areas will be worth looking into once you’ve progressed far enough.
