I have not really played Catch of the Play or Fishing. So I tried today!
It is relatively simple, but I made a short how-to post for those who are interested. This post may be updated to time to time as the game updates or changes.
First go to Treasure Island in Line Square.
Then you buy the fishing potion from Madame Wheezy. It costs 2000 gems and lasts for 30 minutes. This allows you to fish for 30 minutes.
Second, take a spot on one of the bronze coins with a fish on them.
A quick how to will show.
Next your screen will have a start button. You may want to zoom out if you are super zoomed in. Once you push the button, you will cast your line and start fishing.
You will see your red lure bobbing in the water.
This is a game of reaction. You will push the “hit” button once your red lure disappears.
If you are fast enough, you will catch a fish, trash, or treasure chest.
If you are not, you will not catch the fish. Sometimes this can be frustrating.
As you catch more fish, your fishing level increases. The better your level the better your catches. There are potions that increase your fishing level for 30 minutes that you can purchase and use too.
I hope this helps your fishing journey! If you have questions, feel free to post a comment. If you have tips, feel free to post a comment as well!
