See Fishing to learn all the ways you can catch fish.
To use the fishing net:
- Bait your fishing net by dragging a stack of sugar over to the net icon in your inventory.
- Make sure your ship is moving.
- Sit down in a Chair on the ship (near the side of the ship) and equip the fishing net to your hotbar. Use the fishing net by pressing the corresponding number key on your keyboard.
- When you've got a fish a mini-game will start, requiring you to press a corresponding series of keys on your keyboard. When you've successfully completed the mini game, you're inventory will be updated with fish meat, scales and sometimes treasure.
