Fishing is one of the 11 Skills available for players to level up by performing certain actions that give them Fishing XP.
Roman Numerals are used to express its levels in-game.
Although Fishing goes from levels 1-50, 50 XP is required to reach the first level, meaning there is a "level 0," just like all other Skills.
Leveling up Fishing Skill will give the player:
- Increased chance to fish up treasure
- Ability to fish up different (and significantly tougher) Sea creatures
- The ability to use better rods including Challenging Rod, Rod of Champions, Rod of Legends, Rod of the Sea, the Shredder, and the Yeti Rod

When fishing, players have a chance to catch a sea creature. Runic sea creatures have a 50% chance to drop a Wake Rune upon death. As a player increases their fishing level, they unlock stronger creatures that give more XP and better loot. Please note that fishing XP is earned from killing sea creatures, not combat XP. Due to a recent update on May 27, 2020, killing sea creatures on the private island does not provide fishing XP. Refer to Winter Sea Creatures for the list of Jerry Lake only Sea Creatures.

Trivia and Hints
- There are currently 3 Fairy Souls you can only obtain by fishing.
- The Fishing Crystal that spawns when you make the pond island grants more frequent drops of Prismarine Shards and Prismarine Crystals.
- Daytime occurs between 6:00 am–7:00 pm whilst Night time occurs between 7:00 pm–6:00 a.m. Also indicated by the sun or moon next to the time in the sidebar.
- Public Islands provide a boosted sea monster catch chance.
- If fishing at Private Island, use the weather stick to make it rain, which will allow you to have faster catch times.
- However, as mob XP was removed from Private Island, the ability to control weather would benefit if you are fishing solely for treasures.
- There are two blocks on the Fairy Lake bed where there is fire underneath; however, it doesn't seem to serve any purpose at the moment.
- The Combat XP buffs from Slayer, Combat XP Boost Potion, Viking's Tear, or Accessories like Hunter Ring apply to Fishing XP earned from killing sea creatures.
- XP from Sea Creatures based on Zombies (Sea Walker, Monster of the Deep, Water Hydra) count for Zombie Slayer.
- When killing the chicken of the Monster of the Deep you get more XP. But for a Runic Monster of the Deep only killing the Zombie yields a rune.
- You can't hit sea creatures with arrows.
