Fishing has always been a huge part of Zelda games, as evident from the Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening remake. You can participate in this mini-game by traveling to the Mabe Village. After you get there, head toward the northern edge of the village to locate the Fisherman and the Fishing Pond in Zelda: Link’s Awakening.
Zelda: Link’s Awakening Fishing Pond
Fisherman in The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening serves as your guide to fishing mini-game. In case you didn’t pay attention to the Fisherman’s instructions, we’ve got the all the tidbits right here for you – they’re pretty simple:
The first thing that you need to do is to cast your line by pressing and holding the ‘A’ button. Once you’re done with that, you need to make sure the fishes are lured to your bait. To do that, simply move the L-stick in any direction. Finally, as soon as you see a fish on your line, quickly start pressing ‘A’ button again to catch it.
When it comes to fishing, you should always aim at reeling in Lunkers because of the rewards that you can get from these. Lunkers in the Zelda: Link’s Awakening Fishing Pond should appear as green. Another thing to note here is that if you can’t seem to reel in a fish, try to leave the area and come back at a later time.
Now that we’re done with the basics of fishing in Zelda: Link’s Awakening, let’s go over the rewards that this mini-game will net you.
- 1x Heart Piece for Reeling in Any Fish
- 1x Heart Piece for Reeling in Lunker
- 1x Middleweight Lure
