Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The only way to get the Obsidifish and Flarefin Koi is by fishing in lava. On the Desktop version Desktop version and Mobile version Mobile version, any fishing pole can fish in lava using Lava Critters caught in the underworld or by having a Lavaproof Fishing Hook equipped. The Hotline Fishing Hook can still be used to fish in lava with any bait on all versions, however.
  • The Chum Caster will increase the chance of hooking an enemy during a Blood Moon from 1/6 to 1/3.
  • The color of the line can be changed by equipping a string in vanity slots.

Achievements[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Console and Old-gen console versions 3DS version Since the Golden Fishing Rod cannot be used to fish in lava, the best possible fishing in lava is slightly less efficient than the best fishing in water.
