Fishing is a minigame introduced in Yakuza 3 and returning in subsequent games. It is part of the Minigames Challenge. Completion usually requires catching every type of fish, including trash like broken umbrellas, coral, and metal barrels.

The fishing spot is on Morning Glory Beach

Eight (8) types of fish must be caught. Fish and sea snails stack to 99 in the hideout's item list, but coral and umbrellas do not.

Catching a tuna is one way to complete the Sea Bream Strongarm substory.

The fishing spot is at the Fishing Pier

Twenty-three (23) types of fish must be caught. Fish do not stack in the hideout's item list.

Bait can be bought from the Fisherman at the Docks.
