Best Fishing Games for Android

catch fishing games

Humans have been fishing for as long as we’ve existed. We do it for sport, for recreation, and many still do it for food. In this day and age, not everyone has the time to pack up their gear and head out to the nearest lake or river. The good news is that those people still have some options if they want to catch some fish, although we admit it’ll never be as good as the real thing. Here are the best fishing games on Android!

3DCARP is one of the few pay-once fishing games. It features eight lakes and four rivers where you can catch up to 28 different varieties of fish. There are a ton of minor details that set this game apart from its peers. Certain fish will jump out of the water once hooked, you can use bait boats, and even climb trees to help you find more fish. It’s not the most popular fishing game out there. However, it seems like one of the most solid fishing games available right now. Just make sure you try it out before the refund period ends because the game hasn’t seen an update since 2018 so bugs may never get fixed.

Ace Fishing: Wild Catch

Ace Fishing is one of the most popular fishing games out there. The features for this one include the ability to customize your fishing tackle, travel to a variety of places, catch a variety of fish, and more. There is also a global leaderboard to see how your catches compare to the world. Catching a fish isn’t particularly difficult, but the mechanics are fun. There are even a couple of basic fishing tactics required to catch fish. It is a freemium game. That is by far the worst thing about it.

The Fish Master

The Fish Master is a simpler, arcade style fishing game. You drop your line down and haul in as many fish as you possibly can. The game has upgrades that let you reach even greater depths for more fish. It also has idle game elements. You earn money as you do stuff, even when you’re not playing the game. You can obviously tell from the screenshots that this isn’t a serious fishing game. However, it played fine during our tests and seems like a good way to kill a few minutes. The full version of the game costs a single $2.49 and we like the lack of freemium mechanics in this one.

Fishing Break

Fishing Break is a simpler fishing game. In this one, players will be catching hundreds of different fish from eight different locations. You’ll also have achievements to earn, leaderboards to climb, and quick, but challenging game play. The graphics are simple, but that’s okay. In fact, realism might actually make this game worse. It’s the kind of game you play while waiting in line at the store or for commercials to end. As long as you don’t mind that, it’s a fun game.

Fishing Hook

Fishing Hook is one of those fishing games that tries to focus on realism. It’s a fairly basic game at its core. You’ll spend most of your time out on a virtual boat with your line in the water. The mechanics are a little weird. They aren’t overly difficult, though. The game also features challenge fish, achievements, rankings, and support for up to 16 languages. It has some unusual bugs regarding permissions and the Galaxy Note 5. However, for most, it should be a positive experience.

Play of these games and enjoy.
