In addition to all the swordfighting, plot intrigue, and general fantasy adventure world-saving hoo-ha, the Tales games often have a veritable toy box full of miscellaneous minigames for you to enjoy. Puzzles, secret quests, and collectibles offer lots of post-game enjoyment, though if you’re looking for something a little more down to Earth, Tales of Arise’s pastime of choice is good ol’ fishing. Here’s what you need to know about Tales of Arise fishing spots.
You’ll first gain the ability to go fishing after you’ve made some story progress in the Menancia region. Specifically, the time will come in Talka Pond Road, not too long after Dohalim joins up with your party. Your first fishing outing will occur as part of the story, though you can also talk to a Fishing Expert hanging out by the dock for a fishing challenge and some free lures. Actually going fishing is pretty straightforward: just cast your line at a spot in the water where fish are hanging out, complete a couple of QTEs to hook it, then reel the sucker in.
If you’re looking for a specific species of fish, you’ll probably want to know all the Tales of Arise fishing spots. Let’s take a look.
