So I didn't see this anywhere (Im sure I missed it).
- Place/have a rod in inventory
- right-click (and hold) out in water - the longer you hold the further the cast. Don't cast too far!
- note: You are not required to cast in the circle to catch (at first), but at higher tiers it will matter (thanks Rosalia!)
- when the bobber goes under water or moves, right-click to start reeling: MINI GAME
- MINI GAME: left-click+hold to move the indicator to the right inside the bar, or release to let the indicator fall left. Alternate click+hold/release/click+hold/etc.. to keep that indicator in the GREEN zone of the bar until the fish makes it all the way to the right.
- If you are successful, you will catch something!
