In Growtopia, fishing can be done by using bait on water while equipping a Fishing Rod. The result from fishing can either be Fish or some random items that are obtainable through fishing.

In order to fish, any Fishing Rod must be equipped. Players can only fish from one block radius of any placed Water Bucket. In order to start fishing, any bait is to be consumed onto the placed Water Bucket and the player will begin fishing. When there is a splash of water, this means that the rod has caught an item and upon clicking on it, the fished item will go straight to the player's backpack.

If a player moves or clicks at the incorrect time, their bait will be lost. The player must click roughly when they see a water splash, otherwise, the fish will go away. If a player misses a splash, after some time, there will be another splash and the player can catch fish again.

The Gone Fishin'! update which was added on January 14, 2018 introduced two new environments which could be fished in (previously being just water). They are ice environments and radioactive environments. These new environments must be created in order to be fished in.

Radioactive Environment: Made by using a Nuclear Detonator on a Uranium Block with a Water Bucket over it.
Ice Environments: Made by using a Hand Drill on an Ice Crust Block with a Water Bucket over it.

Baits

Baits are one-time consumables and different baits may yield different fish or size of fish.

The different types of baits are:
