④ Once you’ve arrived at the Serene Spring with the [Event] Splat Fisher's Fishing Rod, you’re ready to start ice fishing!

- Keep in mind that you can’t catch the event fish with a normal fishing rod!

 

How to Ice Fish

 

(1) At the Serene Spring, right-click the [Event] Splat Fisher's Fishing Rod from your Inventory (I) to start ice fishing.

 

(2) Once you get a bite, try to successfully complete the minigame.

 

 

(3) The minigame will last up to 30 seconds, and your goal is to keep the fish in the blue gauge until its endurance runs out. Once the fish is all tuckered out, you’ll be able to catch the fish with your spacebar!

 

- Rotate Mouse (Left): Reel in the line and bring the fish closer to the surface.

 

- Rotate Mouse (Right): Slacken the line and allow the fish to move away from the surface.

 

(4) Check out how you can use the fish that can be caught from ice fishing!
