For players to start fishing, they need to have a Fishing Pole and Lures, both of which can be bought from the NPC, Saltwater Sam. A Basic Fishing Pole costs 200 Glim, anew lures cost 10 Glim each. Sam is located at the pirate area of the Hub World. Not having any lures will prohibit the player from casting their line.
For Xbox One, pressing X will cast the line into the water and holding X will bring up the trajectory. After a player casts their line, they will have to wait 20-30 seconds for the lure to start splashing and then they are given 5 seconds to reel the fish in.
