The player must wait for a random period between 5 and 30 seconds before the hook catches something. Each level of Lure enchantment on the fishing rod subtracts 5 seconds from the wait time.
If the bomber is not directly exposed to sun or moonlight, the wait time is approximately doubled (each tick has a 50% chance of not decrementing the count). For direct exposure, all blocks above the bomber must be transparent to sunlight, such as glass and tripwire, but not leaves.
If the bomber's block is being rained on, the wait time is reduced by about 20% (each tick has a 25% chance of counting down 2 instead of 1). After a period of waiting, a trail of water particles appears a short distance from the bomber and heads toward the bomber (provided that the Particles Video Setting is not set to Minimal).
When the particle trail reaches the bomber, it dips below the surface and the player must immediately use the rod again to reel in the line. The window for reeling in when the bomber submerges is about half a second .
Normally, the item flies directly to the player's position, but if there are blocks in the way, it may hit those and bounce off at an angle. If the player wanders more than 32 blocks away from the bomber, or if the player stops holding a fishing rod, the bomber and fishing line disappear with no durability reduction to the rod.
The bomber floats up to the water's surface even if the fishing rod is used from underwater unless it hooks onto a mob such as squid or is obstructed by a block. Reeling in the fishing rod costs durability, although this can vary depending on the circumstances; see below.
After 1 to 4 seconds the particles reach the bomber and the player has a half-second to reel in the line before the waiting time resets. Removing the bomber from water during this interval secures the caught item on the line.
In order to catch items in the treasure category, the bomber must be in open water. These conditions are checked every tick to determine if the player is eligible to receive treasure from a fishing attempt.
a b c d Bows and Fishing Rods caught from the Treasure category are enchanted at a random level between 22-30, but also badly damaged. a b c d Fishing Rods and Leather Boots caught from the Junk category are 10%–100% damaged, and always enchanted.
The percentages for Enchanted chance and Luck of the Sea of Junk item may be inaccurate. In Bedrock Edition, the player can catch only cod and salmon while fishing in jungle biomes and variants.
Reeling in and successfully catching fish, junk or treasure costs 1 durability. The rod incrementally repairs itself using the experience gained each time a player reels in a fish, even if starting from nearly 0% durability.
This section is missing information about the chance to get leather pants instead of boots when fishing ; when this was the case and when was it changed in pocket/bedrock edition. 1.915w43c The Lure enchantment no longer affects the chances of catching things, only the delay.
The Luck of the Sea enchantment is broken due to a typo in the new fishing loot table. Fished junk is now less damaged (0%–90% durability remaining) while treasure is more damaged (0%–25% durability remaining). Ink sacs can now be caught singly with weight 10 (formerly a stack of 10 with weight 1). 1.1318w15a Added nautilus shells, obtainable as a treasure item when fishing.
1.1418w43a Added bamboo, obtainable as a junk item when fishing in jungles. Bubble columns and lily pads both invalidate open water.
Pocket Edition Alpha March 13, 2015Daniel Wustenhoff tweets an image of the player fishing. Bedrock Edition1.4.0beta 220.127.116.11 Added nautilus shells, obtainable as a treasure item when fishing.
The player can obtain the achievement 'Cow Tipper' from reeling in leather . Players are more likely to catch a fish faster when it's raining (20% more) or by using an enchanted fishing rod (which can be found in the spoils of sunken ships) with an enchantment called, Lure.
Cod and salmon can both be cooked, whereas a puffer fish can be used in Brewing. Tropical fish and Puffer fish can 't be cooked and can only be eaten raw, with the latter always giving you the poison, nausea, and hunger effect when consumed.
Many enchantments can be applied to the fishing rod, exclusively: Luck of the Sea and Lure. Lure increases the speed at which fish will be attracted to the rod, whereas Luck of the Sea increases the probability of finding fish or treasure rather than junk.
Once the float has risen to the water's surface, watch for some bubble particles that will move towards the float and make it go underwater when they reach it. As soon as it “bobs” underwater, right-click again, and a fish or item should fly out of the water towards the player's feet.
The fish or item will not always land at one's feet, as it will sometimes fall short or even fly over a player. Wait for the bubble particles to move toward the bomber.
This was often exploited to make “The AFK Fish Farm” (Outdated in 1.16). In Console Editions, if you fish in a water block at Y=256, the block of water turns black and you can 't take the fishing rod out.
The String on the Fishing Rod becomes an entity when the line is cast out. This page describes content that exists only in outdated versions of Minecraft.
Note: that the deeper the lake, the less practical it is to dig it that way. (i.e. 6 blocks deep and also a rise near the edges) Then you do 1 layer of dirt where you want the water level to be.
Fully cover the lake with the one block high layer and fill/overlap with water. Grab a diamond shovel and with ease you dig up the top and only layer of dirt as your lake fills with water.
You can also add to an already made lake like this, and just add 1 layer of dirt blocks at water LVL and watch as the waterfall extends over your extended lake. First, dig a one block deep hole and fill it with water.
You're already almost done, make sure there are no currents ruining your fun and then dig one block deeper. That's the reason why lakes don't fill themselves when one infinite spring is placed up-stream.
You're ready for the next step if you have a layer of calm water separated by rows of dirt or whatever you choose to use. This is important, if there's no block under, the new water spring won't form.
Notice that the schemas only represents the pattern you need to replicate, the size of the pool doesn't matter. Make sure there's no hole without a water source above it directly and you're set to go.
The purpose of this layer is to receive a pool easily filled. Finally, fill the one block deep pool you're supposed to have at the top with water, make sure it's all smooth and currents-less, then destroy the layer supporting it.
Note that this schema is only an example, the size of your pool doesn't matter (except for the work you'll need to do). This is the best way I figured myself, if you believe you can share a better technique I invite you to do so in the discussion page.
Next, fill the bottom with this hole with water, this should be the easy part. Start by placing water on the inside of the square (where the is on the schema above).
When you're done with that part, replace every block in your grid by a spring of water. Now, to finish your lake you just need to recreate the grid at every layer until you reach the desired size for your pool.
(If you don't have a lake or valley at all, you instead dig out the top layer, or at least a 2-block wide outline, 1 block deep.) Go around the edge of your one-block deep depression, and place water in an alternating pattern, like one color of a checkerboard.
If you dug the two-block-outline, at this point you should dig out the interior and let the springs multiply over the whole area. Again, finish digging out the second level of the lake, and let the springs multiply.
If you have a helmet with Respiration and/or Aqua Affinity, that can help a lot with deeper lakes. Ice is obtainable in survival mode with use of the silk touch enchantment on any tool.
Depending on the kind of lake you've made and the placement of the current, you should either: 1) Make a line of blocks at the water level and reach the current.
If you don't want to go through this hassle, you can place the line of blocks one level deeper and reach the current from below. 2) If the pool isn't too deep, you can place a column of blocks that goes under the current, the water will automatically create a new spring to replace the missing one.
This will take some time depending on of the size of your lake but it will be far easier to swim. While it will still look like a uniform lake, you will have access at a couple of sweet spots to swim up faster.
If your lake is too deep or you don't want to dive every time, you can either dig a one block deep line that will go around your lake or build a new pool beside your existing one for your buckets need. Ingredients Crafting recipeDescription Stick + String Damaged Fishing Rod The durability of the two fishing rods is added together, plus an extra 5% durability.
If the rod is reeled in once the particles “bite” the bomber, the player obtains a fish, junk, or possibly a treasure item. The fishing rod can be used to hook mobs, items and some entities, and even players.
The fishing rod can then be reeled in, which drags them toward the player and deals no damage. Attempting to reel in said entities still costs durability to the rod.
Using it on a villager lowers the player's popularity and cause any naturally-spawned iron golems nearby to attack. Please remove this notice once you've added suitable sounds to the article.

If the player stands directly in front of a column and casts the line onto a block above the player, the line falls downward. Tropical Fish are common passive mobs found in oceans.
In Java Edition, tropical fish spawn in lukewarm, warm and deep lukewarm oceans in groups of 8 at 24 (cylindrical) to 64 (spherical) blocks away from the player, with random patterns (see below). In Bedrock Edition, fish spawn underwater at 12-32 blocks away from the player.
Outside of water, they flop around like guardians for a while until eventually they suffocate and die like squid.

Instead, all tropical fish use randomly chosen patterns, sizes, and colors (except black). Tropical fish variants in buckets have names that are assigned based on their colors and type.
In Java Edition, the type, and colors are displayed as item tooltips. In Bedrock Edition, the following colors are renamed from their defaults when they refer to tropical fish.
