How To Get Fishing Tackle in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 players have finally been able to fish in the game, which is a relaxing activity. Fishing is not only a comfortable way to spend some time in the game but also a rewarding one, as you can catch different types of fish and earn rewards.

However, if you want to catch fish quickly in the game, we recommend unlocking the fishing tackle, which enables you to attach baits. This article will explain how to get the fishing tackle in Destiny 2 and how to use it.

How to Get Fishing Tackle in Destiny 2

To get the fishing tackle in Destiny 2, you will need to complete the Season of the Deep main quest known as “Into the Depths” and then progress through the 'Gone Fishin' quest. This Into the Depths quest will take you to Titan, where you will explore the secrets of the Deep Stone Crypt and face the threat of the Witness.

After completing the quest, you will return to the H.E.L.M., where you will talk to Drifter and Sloane via the holoprojector. Sloane will give you a piece of coral that you need to bring to Suraya Hawthorne at the Tower. Hawthorne will then give you a quest called Gone Fishin’, which will reward you with a Fishing Tackle.

The Fishing Tackle can hold up to 500 bait, which you can use to catch better fish. You can collect bait by doing various activities in the game, such as public events, patrols, seasonal activities, and collecting materials.

How to Use the Fishing Tackle in Destiny 2

Once you have your Fishing Tackle, you can head to any of the three fishing spots in the game: EDZ, Nessus, or Savathun’s Throne World. You can find them by looking for the fishing icon on the map. Each fishing spot has different types of fish that you can catch, so you might want to try them all.


To fish, simply approach the fishing area and press the interact button to cast your rod. You will see a bobber on the water indicating when a fish bites. Press the interact button again to reel in your catch when the bobber sinks.

You can check your inventory to see what kind of fish you have caught. The game has ten legendary, 14 rare, and four uncommon types of fish.
