The Sims 3 fishing guide

Fish bait can be purchased at the grocery store or grown at home. Some fish need to be caught first in order to use as bait for bigger fish. The higher the quality of the bait, the larger the caught fish will be. Once caught, fish can be used in cooking meals, as plant fertilizer, as bait, or better still given a name and kept in a fishbowl at home! You can also mail your fish off to be mounted on a board so that you can hang it in your home. It will come back by return mail the next day. If you want to become a master fisherman and catch them all, here’s our handy Sims 3 fishing guide.

We also have a Sims 3 Cooking Guide!
