Fishing is a way to get items using a fishing rod.

Catching Fish

To fish, press shift + click/right click with a fishing rod in the selected hotbar slot while aiming at a water source. When the bobber moves down, to reel it in press shift + click/right click and the caught item will return with the hook towards the player.


A fishing rod is crafted using 2 string and 3 sticks

Fishing loot is split into three categories. Each category has a chance of being chosen, and within each category, there are different probabilities of getting different items. The table shows the probabilities for fishing with an unenchanted fishing rod.

The Luck of the Sea enchantment, per level, decreases the percentage chance of getting a fish by 2%, decreases the chance of getting junk by 1%, giving a 3% higher chance of getting treasure.

The Lure enchantment, per level, increases the chance of getting a fish by 2%, and decreases the chance of getting junk by 1.5%, and decreases the chance of treasure by 0.5%.
