Breakdown of Fishing :-

-Crafted with Wood + Sawing Kit + Metal Frags
-Fishing Bait :- Human remains / sweetcorn seeds / pumpkin seeds / Fish bait
-Trout / Salmon found in streams
-Puffer fish Coastal or mid range water depths
-Poison : Pufferfish extracts can be used to produce poison arrows
-Treatment pills : used to remove the poison effects like radiation pills.
make visible fish, you can spear, but if you get close they disappear swiming away. so if you want to get really large fish, you will have to use a rod and some skill.
make fishing a fun minigame, where you need ro reel and feel the tension aswell as pull the rod. if you go too far, it will cut the line and you will need to spend some bone or metal to make a new hook.
larger fish will give you more food and fat aswell as maybe a random chance of an item iside of it, an electrical component, a piece of junk or component when gutted.
you can try to sneak spear them, but it should be really hard with a spear throw.
Here would be my perfect take on fishing addition:
This is all just suggestions but i wanted a more straightforward idea of fishing. Fishing could be used to catch trout or any new fish they add to the game. You can use any food type. This should be easy for a fresh spawn to build a simple fishing pole. Also another alternative to farming scrap and animal fat. Also be able to fish in peace inside the fishing village. For the animation they could even keep the same sound and asset for catching the fish in a fish trap. For the fisshing pole just make it bob when you hook something.
add fishing pole, no bp needed to craft, cost 200 wood, 20 cloth. Fish catching rate would be around 10-15 seconds. Pole breaks after 15 uses.
Roll out fishing update:
Basic fishing pole added and advaced fishing pole added. The only difference with the advanced fishing pole would be a level 1 BP required, cost 300 wood, 1 sewing kit, 50 metal frags. The benefit would be faster catch rate, much stronger durability and a cleaner look.
Fishing addition in later updates:
move the fish for scrape transaction to the fishing village. new fish. Deep sea fishing for bigger and better fish. The more rare the more scrap you can get for them or gut them for more animal fat and food.
Or just add this all in one update.
so with all the under water work with subs and bases and stuff going on, are we finally gonna see the fishing rod in action?
