In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, people can become quite the culinary masters with Link. Finding different edible items and cooking them can be critical to success. However, actually fishing so you can make some Creamy Seafood Soup or Roasted Bass was a bit tricky, due to there being no rod. Until now, when an easy Breath of the Wild fishing exploit has been discovered.
A reddit user named Charlieboy95 figured out a way to quickly collect fish in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with little to no effort. All you have to do is whistle. Not to attract fish, though. Rather, you whistle to scare them toward a shore where you can easily pick them up and add them to your inventory to eventually become a snack.
Here’s how the trick works. If you find an area in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild where water gradually meets the shore and connects via a beach, you could use the whistling trick. One option is to use the Cryonis Rune to create ice pillars in the water, hop onto them, then whistle to scare the fish onto the beach. Though, if someone wants to maybe take a bit longer, they could wade out a bit so they’re standing in the water and try and whistle too. (The Cryonis Rune method works best.) If the shore incline is gradual enough, the fish will panic and swim that way, getting stuck there.
Until this option was discovered, people really only had three ways to fish. One was to have Link wade into the water, then try and press A at the right time to grab as either they swim by or he swims after them. If you’re a good shot, you could use a bow and arrow to shoot them in the water. Or, there’s always the easy “bomb everything” approach where you toss the bomb in the water near the fish, make it explode, then pick up the fish at your leisure.
