How Do You Place a Rod in Fishing Planet?

Fishing Planet is a free-to-play fishing simulation game developed for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. In the game, players can take part in various fishing tournaments, catch different types of fish, and buy the necessary equipment to enhance their experience.

One of the most important pieces of equipment in Fishing Planet is the rod. The rod is used to cast out your line and reel in fish. Knowing how to correctly place a rod in Fishing Planet can make a big difference when it comes to catching fish.

When placing your rod in Fishing Planet, you first need to select your bait. This could be anything from worms or crickets to lures or flies.

Once you’ve chosen your bait, you’ll need to equip it on your rod by selecting it from the list of items on the left side of the screen. After that, you’ll need to select which type of cast you want to use. There are three types: spin cast, float cast and fly cast.

Now that you’ve chosen your bait and type of cast, it’s time to actually place the rod in Fishing Planet. To do this, you’ll need to move your pointer over an area on the water where you want to place the rod.

You can then press “A” (Xbox) or “X” (PlayStation) on your controller or left click with your mouse if playing on PC. Once you’ve placed the rod in its desired location, press “A” (Xbox) or “X” (PlayStation) again or right click with your mouse if playing on PC.

After pressing those buttons or clicking with your mouse again, a pop-up will appear asking you how far out you want to cast your line. You can choose between 2m (6 feet), 4m (13 feet), 6m (20 feet) and 8m (26 feet). Once you have selected a distance for casting out your line, press “A” (Xbox) or “X” (PlayStation) again or right click with your mouse if playing on PC.

Finally, after all this is done correctly, a small animation will appear showing the rod being placed in its designated spot and then casting out its line according to what distance was chosen previously. And just like that!

Your rod is now placed correctly in Fishing Planet.


Placing a rod correctly in Fishing Planet is an important part of successful fishing trips within the game. To do so properly requires selecting bait firstly followed by choosing which type of cast should be used and then finally placing it at an appropriate distance into the water using either a controller/mouse depending on which platform one plays Fishing Planet on. Following these steps will ensure success when attempting any kind of fishing trip within this popular video game!
