How to Catch Fish in Play Together

Fishing is one of the main activities in Play Together. You can sell your prized catches for in-game cash (aka stars) or put them in fish tanks in your house to show it to your friends.

Our step-by-step Play Together fishing guide will help you sharpen your angling skills:

Go to the Plaza (Kaia Island). Tap on the smartphone icon on the left side of the screen. Tap on the “Map” icon.

Under the Plaza map, search for “fishing shop” is the list of areas on the right side of the map. Tap on this location name.

Next, tap the “navigate” button on the lower-left corner of the screen. An arrow will appear below your character, making it easy for you to navigate to the shop.

Follow the arrow to the shop. It’s located close to the Ferris wheel. Move close to the shopkeeper and tap on the cart icon (in a speech bubble) above him.

Purchase fishing rod

Tap on the “purchase fishing rod” button on the lower right corner of the screen. Purchase the most basic wooden rod. It’s ideal for novice anglers and is the cheapest of all. Costs 450 stars.

Now go back to the map on the smartphone and tap on the dock under the location list on the right. The dock is actually very close to the fishing shop and the Ferris wheel. You don’t even have to look into the map to find it.

There’s a pier next to the dock – an ideal location for fishing.

Go to the edge of the pier, close to the waters. Now tap on your red backpack on the right side of the screen. Tap on the closed umbrella icon to open the tools section.

Tap on the rod to equip it to your avatar.

A new action (bait icon) will be displayed on the lower-right corner of the screen, just above the jump button. Tap on it to start fishing.

Have patience. Keep an eye on the water. You can drag your finger to get a good view of it.

Soon you will notice the shadow of a fish near the bait, on the water. Remain calm.

Note the shadow of the fish. It's about to take the bait.

An exclamation mark will appear above the fish’s shadow. It means it has seen the bait. The fish will now come closer the bait. It won’t catch the bait sometimes, just push it around playfully.

But once you see it move rapidly with a loud sound of reel, it’s time to pull the rod up. Tap on the fish and rod icon on the bottom-right to pull it.

At first it won’t be easy, and you will need some practice catching fish. It’s all about timing. Remember that when the fish holds onto the bait and moves rapidly, that’s the right time to catch it, but even then you won’t be able to catch it most of the times.

Tap on the rod icon to pull it at the right time.

Like I said earlier, it’s all about timing and you shouldn’t pull the rod too early or late once you hear the reel sound. Thankfully, there’s no time limit and you can catch fish anytime, without any pressure.

Once you have caught successfully, tap on the “Store” icon to store the fish.

Now go back to the shop, tap on the cart button above the shopkeeper and press the sell button. Tap on your recent catches and then tap on blue button at the bottom to sell it.

Sell them for stars

The pier isn’t the only fishing spot in Play Together. You can catch fish wherever there’s water, whether it’s the pier or the swimming pool. The pool is located near the fashion mall. There’s a staircase next to the mall that leads to the pool.
