Fishing is a lot of fun if you want a relaxing time. In video games it tends to be a bit simpler than in the real world. The simple act of casting out your line and catching aquatic life is very rewarding, and the subject of various video games over the years. And now, one more game is getting some scaley friends. With the introduction of fishing in Genshin Impact Update 2.1, players can head out into the water to get a new resource for food and crafting, fish.
To actually fish, you need to take a rod and some bait to a Fishing Point and interact with said point. When you get a nibble, push the Raise Hook button to reel it in. Keep the line tension under control by keeping it inside the yellow tension zone. Once the fish reaches shore, you’ve caught it. There’s even a basic tutorial that teaches you all of this.
With the new content, comes a new quest to teach players the ropes. This quest gives you some starting fish bait and other supplies. Learning to fish this way nets you 10 Fake Fly Bait, 10 False Worm Bait, 10 Redrot Bait, and 10 Fruit Paste Bait. And of course, you can get more. This guide will cover how to get more Fish Bait in Genshin Impact.
What types of Fish Bait are there in Genshin Impact
There are many types of Fish Bait in Genshin Impact, including:
- Fruit Paste Bait – Use this bait to catch Medakas, Dawncatchers, and Crystalfish
- Redrot Bait – Use this bait to catch Sticklebacks, Bettas, Venomspine Fish, Akai Maou, and Snowstriders
- False Worm Bait – Use this bait to catch Shirakodai and Angelfish

How to get more Fish Bait in Genshin Impact
You can purchase more bait blueprints from the Fishing Associations. You can find these vendors in the major cities in each region. They show up as a fish icon on the map, pretty easy to spot.
But you can also make your own. To make your own Fish Bait in Genshin Impact, you need the formulas unlocked for each variety. Nantuck, the Mondstadt fisherman, sells three formulas for Redrot Bait, False Worm Bait, and Fake Fly Bait. So go to Mondstadt and look for the fishing icon to get the three formulas. You will need to trade three Medaka fish for the three recipes.
