LifeAfter Fishing Tips & Tricks: A Complete Guide to Fishing

Apocalypse survival games have been around for years, but NetEase has decided it is time to take the genre to the next level with LifeAfter. Available on Android and iOS platforms, the game is set in a world that’s overrun by the Infected. Your character’s job is to reclaim the world one territory at a time by killing the Infected and reestablishing settlements. You are not alone, though. There are other survivors who are trying to do the same. Together, you can rebuild the world and give humanity hope.

In order to rebuild civilization, however, you will need to hone certain skills. One of those skills is Fishing. It allows you to catch fish from bodies of water. You can then sell the fish or use them for cooking. If you have just started the game, you may want to check out our LifeAfter walkthrough of the first chapter instead. Otherwise, read the rest of this LifeAfter guide below to learn everything you need to know about fishing!

1. How To Get The Fishing Quest

A lot of newbies tend to miss the quest for fishing because it does not automatically appear in the story. They end up trying to buy rods and bait from the market just to get started, wasting good money in the process. The quest for fishing can be accepted through the 5th Caravan’s quest board in Hope 101, right beside Rachel.

The next hurdle newbies face after accepting the quest is finding Vast in Autumn Forest. This can be confusing because you will actually need to go to Fall Forest. Once there, you can find Vast on Minor Island 1. Talk to him in order to trigger the rest of the quest. Following the rest of the instructions from the quest log should be easy enough from there. After completing the quest, you get to take home the rod and bait from Vast.

2. Learn The Different Fishing Modes

There are two fishing modes in LifeAfter: manual and auto. To play the manual fishing mode, simply cast your line. You will see a floater icon in the middle of the screen. It will change into a fish icon once you get a bite. A meter with a green bar will appear. Your job is to repeatedly tap the action button on the right side of the screen in order to keep the needle within the green bar. Once the fish icon is full, you will successfully catch the fish.

If you want to auto-fish, the steps are much simpler. Just cast your line the same way you would in manual fishing. When you see the floater icon, tap on the small button with a computer monitor icon on the right side of the screen. When the icon is orange, that means you are in auto fishing mode and you won’t have to do anything other than wait. This is best done when you will be away from the game for some time. Keep in mind, however, that the catch rate for fish is reduced to about 30% during auto-fishing.

3. Know Where To Fish

If you are trying to catch a specific type of fish for a recipe, you will have to know where to catch them. The good news is that you only need to distinguish between two types of fish. There are fish that can only be caught in freshwater and others are only found in saltwater. Any river in any map will yield freshwater fish. Saltwater fish, however, can only be found on the island on the left side of Charlestown. We have listed the different types of fish that you can catch below.

4. Use A Better Rod

There are three types of fishing rod available in the game so far. The higher the level of the fishing rod, the easier it will be to catch rare fish. Some fish are only available when using high level rods. Aside from the free basic rod that you get from Vast, you can craft your own. Formulas for higher level fishing rods will need to be unlocked first, of course. Check out the different rods below and how you can get your hands on them.

Wooden Fishing Rod – This is the basic fishing rod, and its formula becomes available after completing Vast’s quest. Crafting this requires wood and hardwood vine.

Iron Fishing Rod – The formula for this rod is unlocked at the fishing mastery level. You will need to complete the quest “Let’s Go Fishing!” to be able to craft it. Material requirements are iron ore, hardwood vine, and wood.

Fiberglass Fishing Rod – This is the best rod in the game at the moment. It is also the only rod that can catch a Lobster. Make sure you complete the quest “There’s Plenty of Time to Fish” in order to unlock the formula for this. Crafting it requires wood, resin, hemp step, and hardwood vine.

5. Raise Your Fishing Level

Just as with any other skill in the game, you can increase your proficiency in catching fish by raising your fishing level. To do so, all you have to do is keep fishing. Depending on whether you use manual or auto fishing, it can take as little as one day to max out your fishing experience. If you want to know your current level, and how much experience you need, just head into your profile menu.

6. How To Master Fishing

There are several benefits from fishing. It is a great source of food, especially if you have time to auto-fish. You can also get two Titles that are related to fishing: Fishing Champion and Koi. If you are aiming for the Master Chef title, the fish that you catch will help you in completing your recipe mastery as well.

Before you get too excited about those perks, however, there are still a couple of things you should remember. First off, avoid fishing when your vigor is full. The Invigorated buff is a great way to increase productivity for other skills. It is ultimately wasted on fishing. The only time you should fish while Invigorated is when you won’t be playing anyway, and the buff will be lost.
Another thing you should remember is to avoid auto-fishing in the open world. If you will be away from your device while fishing, do it in the safety of your camp pond. While most players will leave you alone and go about their own business, there are still quite a few who will take advantage of the opportunity to kill you.

Grab your fishing rod and get ready to reel in hundreds of fish in LifeAfter! Make sure you use our tips and tricks above and you will be a Fishing Champion in no time!
