This Sims 3 Guide was originally written for the PC and Mac versions of the game, but also will help owners of the console versions - PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii. Please remember some info or numbers may have changed.

How to Fish - Choosing early Fishing Spots

Learning how to fish in the Sims 3 is easy. First, you do not need to buy a pole to start fishing in the Sims 3. You only need visit one of several outdoor fishing locations to get started. Certain places take a higher fishing level for you to use them. Whether you are fishing in Riverview or Sunset Valley, try to get started fishing at one of the ponds, just a normal freshwater pond with no waterfall. You can also try to catch fish at the beaches in Sunset Valley or along the river in Riverview.


Fishing Classes
To get past the level 1 hump, Sims can take a fishing class at the grocery store in town. This usually costs $400. It's worth it, because your Sim will make that first level much faster than by fishing normally.

How to Learn Fishing
Once your Sim casts their line, they will immediately begin learning how to fish. The fishing skill will be learned within a few hours, and your Sim will finally have the skill appear in the skill journal. You can then view your progress toward the fishing challenges, view a list of fish you've caught or view the bait (once your Sim has learned a bait).

Fishing can be a very rewarding skill to pursue in the Sims 3. You can eventually catch the death fish, which is worth over 1000 simoleonsYou'll catch minnows and goldfish until you can move up to a better fishing spot. That said, even higher level fish don't start providing a lot of money until you can catch higher quality versions of them by using bait.

To actually catch fish, you'll just need to go to one of the aforementioned locations and click the water. Your Sim will begin fishing. You can make decent money right when you start. Nothing like having a job, but enough for your Sims to live on. The goal is to keep practicing so that your skill gets better and better. Eventually, you'll be allowed to use bait.

Mastering the art of catching fish will not only earn you tons of Simoleons, it also synergizes well with The Sims 3's Gardening and Cooking Skills.
