How Do You Bait a Fishing Pole in Ark?

Bait fishing is a great way to catch fish in Ark Survival. While it might seem like a complicated task at first, it’s actually quite simple and doesn’t require any special equipment. All you need is the right bait, some patience, and you’ll be catching fish in no time!

The first step to successful bait fishing in Ark Survival is to find the right kind of bait. There are many different types available, so you’ll want to experiment with a few until you find the one that works best for your area.

Popular choices include worms, insects, small fish, and even pieces of fruit. Once you’ve found the right bait for your location, it’s time to get started!

The next step is to prepare your fishing pole for baiting. This involves attaching a hook to the line and then threading the line through the eye of the hook. Make sure that the hook is securely attached and that there are no loose ends that could interfere with your line or snag on anything underwater.

Now it’s time to bait your hook! Depending on what type of bait you choose, there are different ways to do this.

If you’re using worms or insects, simply thread them onto the hook until they are secure. For other types of bait such as small fish or fruit pieces, use a baiting tool such as a needle or tweezers to carefully place them onto the hook.

Once your hook is baited properly, it’s time to cast your line into the water! This involves holding your rod at an angle and then casting out from near shore towards deeper waters. Make sure not to cast too far out – if your line gets tangled up underwater it can be very difficult (or even impossible) to retrieve it.


Baiting a fishing pole in Ark Survival isn’t difficult once you know what type of bait works best in your area and how to properly attach it onto the hook. With some patience and practice, anyone can become an expert fisherman in no time!
