Gaia Fishing, also stylized as GAIA Fishing!, is a Gaia Online feature.


Promotional textEdit

Grab your rod and let's go fishing! They may be tough but you're tougher! Claim your victory and get your rewards!

Feature explainedEdit

When fish are caught they may be traded or sold to NPC:Old Man Logan for Gaia Gold, they can also be traded for fishing items or better fish via the Exchange Items feature. And once a month prizes are given for the top fishers at each lake, as well as for the best overall catch and most junk caught. These prizes are Fishing Trophies: Gold means getting 1st place in Overall, Bass'ken Lake, Port of Gambino, or Durem Reclamation Facility, or in Junk. Silver is 2nd place and Bronze is 3rd-10th place; in all the waters or in Junk.


Players must purchase or obtain bait to lure fish, they are 25 to 250 gold each. The higher the grade of bait the better the catch is and the least possibilities of reeling in junk items.

Next is a fishing rod, there are four rods with their own guidelines but it still depends on the skill of the player. Each rod can be upgraded to increase their guidelines. Another rod that is special is the 'Angelic Rod', a rod given to Fishers of great skill and those who have spent a lot of time Fishing. Rods with a shorter casting distance make it easier to catch fish, but must be cast further to hook the more valuable fish.

Prior to the games updates, new users would receive Grade F bait and a Basic Rod for free.

  • Work In Progress[1]

Flash space

  • In May of 2015, Gaia fishing experienced an error with the CAPTCHA system that left players unable to save their buckets, causing them to not be able to keep any fish that were caught. To date, the captcha system is still no longer functioning. Player can type in any value into the captcha verification system and the fish will then save to your inventory.[2]
