Fishing Kings Game App For iPhone - Tips, Hints, Cheats

Fishing Kings is a game app for the iPhone and iPad. Even if you are not a fan of fishing, fishing kings is still a great game with lots of enjoyable features. This article will review the game and also give you some fishing kings tips and hints on how to play the game.

Fishing Kings

What Is Fishing Kings


Fishing kings is an iPhone app from by Gameloft. This is basically a fishing game where the object of the game is to catch fish. Although that sounds very simple, fishing kings is actually a very involved game with lots of different features and modes of game play. There are lots of challenges and missions to get involved in and the game really will keep people interested for a long while.

When you open the app you have the chance to join up to Gameloft live. This gives you the ability to register your fishing kings high scores and keep track of where you are on the leader boards in relation to other players. You can also change a few of the options such as sound level, music level, voice level and turn the vibration on and off. You can also change the language, the standard setting is English but there are eight other languages to choose from.

Game Snapshot


When you click on ‘Go Fishing’ you are taken to a large map. Here you are asked to select a location where you would like to fish. At first there are only a few places you can fish, you must complete certain levels to unlock new locations. On the right of the screen there are also options to view your tackle, diary, guide and PDA. As you progress through the game you earn money to purchase new lures, rods and other bits and pieces. The better your tackle, the better your chances of catching a big fish.

When you have selected a location you can start to actually fish. You are stationed on the back of a boat usually. You have a marker out on the water that you can move around, this is where you will cast to. Flip your iPhone or iPad back and then flip forward. This will cast your line out. The lure will land and then start to sink, now you can see any fish in the area, the idea is to catch the biggest and best fish which will in turn earn you new levels and money to buy new tackle.


Tips, Hints, Cheats

When it comes to hints and tips for fishing kings, the best advice is to practice. When it comes to hooking a fish you must be patient and careful not to snap your line. You need to slowly reel the fish in but stop if the line tension meter goes into the red. You also need to move to the left and right as the fish tries to free itself from you line. When the fish is exhausted then it’s time to start reeling him in, but be aware that he will get a second wind and try to escape again. When you get your catch near the boat you need to flip your device to land the catch.

If you are looking for cheats for fishing kings then there are some cheats out there. If you look online there are a few patches you can download which give you lots of money and give you all the available tackle. Although I think that really using fishing king cheats spoils the game somewhat. To get the most out of this game you should really complete all the levels yourself and enjoy it that way. One thing I will say about this game, it's easy to get hooked, you will find yourself up all night playing this, so make sure you drink plenty of coffee!


Fishing kings is really an excellent game with so much to enjoy. This is the kind of game that will keep players involved for ages as there is so many different things to aim for and achieve. The graphics are very good, the sounds is simple but good, the voices can be slightly irritating but they are easy to turn off. If you like fishing then fishing kings is a game you will really enjoy. If you are not a fan of fishing then the fishing kings app for the iPhone is still something that you will really enjoy.

If Fishing Kings is a game you enjoy, there are lots more great free apps out there that will suit you.  For some ideas on what to download just click here

I'm stuck on a mission where I need to catch 3 grass carps, I'm using the right lure but the only fishes that get interested are flathead mullets... Help?

Stephen Ackart 6 years ago


Cast and let the lure sit there. Grass carp attack lures that are stationary and don't move. I had the same problem

Sabby 6 years ago

Having the same problem with the rainbow trout, found where they are hiding but all I get are brown trout. Upgraded the bait but these fish just swim by the bait.

stephan 6 years ago

It isn't a problem to catch a rainbow trout. Just stop reeling and wait if you see one swimming ahead your bait. Most of the times they eat the bait while it`s on the bottom of the see. I catched like 20 rainbow trouts. Problem is my biggest was 26,4 LBS. Looks like there arent rainbows over 28 LBS, and that you need to finish the tournament.

stephan 6 years ago

Okay, Caught a 35 inch rainbower, took me over 20 rainbows : Caught em on the left a little bit above the dock at 74,1 ft. It is possible!

Maria 6 years ago

I can't find any king mackerel... I've tried casting out but can only cast out 76ft at max and then when I reel it in, it goes on top of the ship and I can't get it behind it! Please help? How do I get the line behind the ship??

stephan 6 years ago

@ kell: dont know what mission: but if it is your first yellow perch mission: throw your bait at the beach (sand).

@JOJO: if a fish tries to eat my bait I pull the bait, until he leaves. Stop reeling: maybe trench comes to unreeled bait and bullheads not. If not, just try to pull with bullheads and waith for trench

@maria: Dont throw your bait: but waith until you see 'bubbles' on the water: there is your king mackerel. So throw your bait at the bubbles. I dont understand what you say about 'how do i get the line behind the ship': Your throwing area is limited: lift side, ahead, right side at 75 ft.

stephan 6 years ago

did someone did the 'arapaima' challenge ? Catch the biggest arapaima in 10 minuts. I did caught like 50 arapaimas: I can catch like 10 in 10 mintus, but they arent big enough: I need an 86 lbs or something and my max is 83 lbs. Did somebody finished this mission ? And how much arapaima did you caught for that ?

How do i catch the Tench in 5 minutes? even if i catch 4 (the same as the winner) of the right weight i only come in 2nd. I've been trying for ages and it seems that i can't win and progress to the next level.. aaagh!

JD 6 years ago

I also stuck in the arapaima challenge in the Amazon River (challenge #6). I am having the same problem as Stephan, the biggest arapaima I can get is 83 inch. Can't find the 85+ inch that I need to pass the challenge. Any hints anyone?

@ Fisherlady: The way I caugh the 5 Tench was to cast right on the water riple when it show up the first time and then just keep casting in the same spot. Then instead of reeling continuosly, I constantly did short pumps whith the reel (don'tknow if it makes sence) keeping the lure constantly moving but without making it go to fast or deep. Worked every cast.

Go to the world map and search for an area where you didn't fished before and catch a not caught fish earlier. After that I received new missions without requirements!

Pucsent 6 years ago

EK.... I'm stuck there too. However, I found tons of them on the right side. What I've been doing is catch and keep all piranha. Process of elimination to thin out the smaller ones. Seems to be working but run out of time most of the time. Largest I caught so far is 14.9. Probably not a solution but hope you have more luck then I do.

EK 6 years ago

You should be able to get give from that right side. Then another one or two from. About 60 feet off the back of the boat. Good luck!

Tasha 6 years ago

Please help me! I'm stuck on amazon mission ten and have been stuck on it for 4 days now! I can't complete it I only get 3 piranhas big enough to be counted and the rest are to small! There are more small piranhas that big ones by 10/1! Someone must have completed it if so how? Because staying to the right of the boat didn't work staying to the left defo didn't work and the middle doesn't have enough and mixing it up doesnt work please help me!!

Pucsent 6 years ago

Makes matter worse...the Piranhas have to be between 10-16. You get those massive ones and it doesn't count.....

EK 6 years ago

On the right side about 76 ft away u should find 4-5 piranha 10-16 inches. Then another one or two 50 ft off the back of the boat. Also, for the blue marlin use the surface lure and tilt - don't reel

Tasha 6 years ago

Yeah that's what I did but the big ones aren't biting they swim right past then a small one will try to bite so I have to yank away! I can't get enough of the big ones in enough time, it's really frustrating! Is this the last level and mission?

EK 6 years ago

Don't pull away from the "smaller ones." they all look the same. Just fish the right side til u have four or five then switch. Anybody know where to find the shark??

The 18th species of fish is the rainbow smelt found at lake Erie and doesn't like a lot of movement so keep movement to minimum when trying to catch tends to hide from predators so is in areas of plants and sunken trees and around boat docks jettys hope this helps

How do you unlock Amazon missions? I have one site there open but no challenges for it.

Vega 6 years ago

Just finished Amazon challenge 10. It took me about 2 hours, but it's possible. I was fishing on the right side of the boat between the two spots (30 and 60 feet), so threw the hook on about 40-50 ft.

I focused on the piranhas that looked bigger than others and touched them about 5 or 6 times on the screen. I'm not sure if it helped because of that, but usually they saw the hook after that.

I fished 6 piranhas with the right size and 4 or 5 being too small. So, you don't really have time to change the location. Stick with the spot on the right side.

@Ce: catch any fish in the amazonas area and you'll get new challenges.


wendy 6 years ago

are there more missions after the amazon ones? i've gone through my pda and i haven't missed any, once i finished the amazon missions, no new ones have shown up. thanks

Thanks -the trick is to land the fish instead of being environmentally friendly and releasing. Sadly I did the same with my first marlin at 470 lbs, but did not get credit for it. Now can only catch

I was just reading through all the comments and I too have just completed the game in full and finished the last mission in The Amazon but am now wondering what to do next.

A lot of people have asked about a possible "shark" in the game, does anyone know this for sure or is it just made up?

Please reply as I LOVE this game and would like to continue playing it.

Thanks in advance,

Jeez guys 5 years ago

No shark, rainbow smelt; walleye are under the bouys; to catch marlin do not reel, just jig over and over again; muskies are in the deepest waters in the first place in lake Erie; To catch rainbow trout use the jig lure and do not reel when they come; to catch brook trout cast as far out as you can in the first place of nuhuel huapi and reel until they see the lure, then stop and they will bite; to catch grass carp hold the lure still and keep the camera angle tilted at the carp, they will bite; yellow perch are in the shallowest parts of the first place in lake Erie; blue marlin are a little to the right of the cruise ship as far out as you can cast at the first place in the Bahamas, and to catch them reel, just jig and they will bite

I really need details on how to catch blue marlin I've caught 1, but it was small and I accendently caught it by swinging my found around like an idiot

Pete 5 years ago

Dear Ultimate fisher, you didn't catch the blue marlin by accident. That's exactly how to catch a blue marlin, by swinging your phone around like an idiot lol, cos it is the only way the fish will respond to the lures ;p Their spots are usually in Bahamas open sea at the far left corner just around 60 ft after the cruise ship. I caught one around 498 pounds there by using the same technique whenever there's marlin swimming around. Sure catch lol ;p btw anybody know the best spot for big arowana in level 49? I'm stuck for so long with the tiny ones :(

Fat Horse 5 years ago

Need help with the snappers badly. I need to move on or my life will be wasted

Latezz 5 years ago

About the snappers... I'm not sure if you guys have the same problem as me before, but, eventually I got them to bite. It was a matter of "spot" where you cast the bait. Just make sure the snapper(s) is close and around the spot you cast your bait and let it sink down in front of them or they won't "see" the bait and no fish will come and bite it, or just reel until you find one then wait until it bites. Same goes to the barracudas and the amberjacks, you just have to make sure that the barracuda sees the bait before amberjack does. There's a specific location for barracudas, just find them and you'll get the fish. It's hard to shake amberjack away sometimes, so yeah...

And now I'm struggling with marlin... I'm trying to find my way to it...

Kevin 5 years ago

I can't seems to get anything using the jig lure ... Save me please

Latezz 5 years ago

Grrrh!! Over half a hundred casts, i fished out like... 4-5 marlins. I got one king-sized one to complete the trophy alright but the funny thing is that I got so much more exp from catching brown bullheads. Bug or not, I've fished tons of brown bullheads worth of ~1000 exp points. Sometimes I got one that was like 300~ or so.. I'll focus on the exp for now b/c there's no mission for me anymore, unless I'm lv 44... Enough with the marlin, for now.

Just sharing...

How do you get trench instead of brownbullhead? Whenever a wrong fish gets my lure it makes me stressed. How do I get trench

Latezz123 5 years ago


For trench, just move; reel in slowly. Because if you don't, brown bullheads will take the still bait and stress you out. :)))

Latezz123 5 years ago


If you mean the new missions, you just won't be able to do them unless you reached their required level. So just find some fish to fish until you level yourself up.


I don't really get what ur saying, but the way to change the lure into the ones you want to use is by going to the shop, go to the lure you want, then select "equip"... Tadaa! Now, you can only use the lure you own, the rest, just get richer and buy them all. Good luck fishing :)))


The only snapper mission that comes to my mind is the one at the old aquarium. The snappers are swimming low at the sea floor, in the coral reef, in the rocks, under the mud floor, whatever, they come from every where if you drop the bait near them enough. I casted the bait somewhere in front of the big... domey thing with a thick foundation on the left side of the boat. I remembered that it's a speed-fishing mission, so don't cast too far or you won't gonna be able to reel it in in time, a little between 40-70ft. Hope that helps. :))

Latezz123 5 years ago


I've just updated the game to it's newest version that comes with the new shark and shark missions. I assume you did that as well. I've already tried fishing for some sharks already... I might just say that it's everywhere. Well, not everywhere, but so far I fished it out from the open sea of bahamas and the jungle of amazon river. I have yet to explore other locations. So yeah, I'll get to that soon.

By the way... After I updated it, I just can't help but noticed that every gets significantly slower; the cast ,the reel-in, the fish-out, etc. Not just with the sharks, but also the other fish like the snappers I fished out to help Denny, and also king macarel that I mistakenly caught... This is a little frustrating, but nonetheless bearable change...

Sambarooni 5 years ago

Hey KJ and EK. there is a shark. If you get the app update that has the blue marlin wearing a red coat and a santa hat then you have 5 missions with the bull shark. They are in the Bahamas and in the Amazon. With the update you also get more realistic graphics for the fish and more items, shark reel, shark rod, and 3 new lures, mullet chum, sheepshead chum, and stingray chum.

Chance 5 years ago

I can't seem to get 3 stars on the catch 5 yellow-eyed mullett mission. Please advise.

Latezz123 5 years ago

To Chance

Those mullets are on the right just between the underwater rocks. Yellow mullets are further to the back about 43-50ft. If any closer to the fisherman, the flathead will start to appear. So find a range about 35-40ft. to fish. The closer the better because you are on the clock, so less time to spend on reeling them in, the more likely you'll finish with 3 stars. But this also depends on a little bit of luck, too. Sometimes there's no fish when you cast out. Sometimes the fish are just far away and it takes time for them to see the bait and swim to it. Sometimes the fish takes 3 attempts on the bait and when you try to reel them in and it puts up a fight. And all of these take time, which you do not have, so it's luck, some skill, and speed that will get all 5 of them in time. Pray for when you cast the bait out, there will be yellow mullets very close by and it will immediately rush to the bait and took it at the first bite and that it will stay like dead fish when you reel them in. And wala

Keep trying. It's possible. I was stucked with it for a few weeks before I got it just right. :)))

How to get the" BLUE MARLIN " ?

kirby 5 years ago

Hey you catch the barracuda by casting out and reeling in very quickly so that it runs along the bottom and they will bite. I had the same problem! How do I catch the King Mackerals in the last bahama mission where the gate is?

Fisherjjj 5 years ago

Hi folks

I'm in mission 45 done

Done all of missions with 3* but n. 29 and n. 44 with 2*

Finally I got a blue marlyn, I have understood that to capture the marlyn you need at least:

Ultra heavy reel

Fc line

Surface bopper

Heavy spinning rod

May be also you need level 45 or more

The technic to fish marlyns is clearly described in this forum and I want to thank all the fisherpeoples that posted comments!

Btw get marlyns is most difficult

Suggestion to get 3* in missions 29 e 44 ?

Where can I find the grouper? And what lure do I use

Fisherjjj 5 years ago

@ kats

Bigger Piranhas seem to stay 40ft on right middle-right side. What's your technic to make piranhas notice the bait?

Latezz123 4 years ago

Okay... I dont't have anything to say about the barracudas, the marlins, the sharks, or the groupers that was mentioned just yet but I do have sonething to say about the Piranhas though.

I'm on the piranhas' mission too and haven't quite got it yet b/c I don't really have time to play. But one thing I've noticed so far is that, the piranha tends to like the spoon bait better. Trust me, if they see it, they'll come swimming fast to it and take it, wayyyyy better response than the recommended jig lure. I guess we would have to quickly change the bait to the spoon and find the fishing spot in 5-15 seconds, and use the rest of the 2 minutes and 40-50 sec to fish out all of the 6 fish to get 3 stars. I either abort or quit the mission when I know I'm not gonna make it so my chance for 3 star exp reward is still on!

Fisherjjjj, I understand your pain bout the 3 stars stuff. I won't play anything else until I get 3 stars in every mission. I made that so far... because the current piranha is not graded yet. I'll see what I can help with your 29 and 44.

Latezz123 4 years ago

Fisherjjj, if the 29&44 really are the white bass and the piranha...

29, I don't see any problem with it. Just catch the one over 15 in. and you're fine.

44, like I've mentioned above, try spoon lure, it's faster.

Does anyone know to catch a stupid blue marlin?

Fisherjjj 4 years ago

@ latez123

Thx, I gonna try the spoon, make you know...

Mission 29 is yellow eyed mullets, I have finally red your post bout it but I'm still trying. Make me mad those mullets take too much time to notice the bait and eat...

@ blue marlin hunters

When the marlyn is far reel in very little than stay motionless, if the fish loose attention reel in again or tilt. You have to attract fish on the bait staying motionless. When the mouth of fish is on the bait tilt continuously.

How can u catch a blue marlin the reeling technique help please

Latezz123 4 years ago

@ Fisherjjj

I am also using the willowleaf:spoon lure all along. I just can't seem to beat the clock. After many attempts on it. I sacrificed my 3-star exp reward so that I can use the same bait and be on the same fishing spot as my first round (you know... After ur failure in getting the 3 stars and they ask whether you choose to continue, look at the leaderboard, or just quit. If you choose to continue, you'll have the same bait and the same fishing spot that you last casted). But that still didn't help much, so yeah, still stuck there. And I think 12.5 m is a lil bit too near the boat. The shortest cast is about 18-19 m. Do you mean 22.5m or sonething? Thanks for sharing.

FisherjjjIm 4 years ago

@ latez123

I cast out the bait 38 ft (that is 12,5 meters) immediately piranhas swim to the bait. I reel in till ~ 12 ft than I let the fish eat the bait. Normally it takes less than 30 second each fish but sometimes I cast out and there aren't fishes at all...

How do you catch bonefish please?

Fisherjjj 4 years ago

@ carig

To catch a bonefish in old aquarium use fizzer lure, cast out 40 ft on the right side when you see the bonefish reel in slowly. Pretty easy get 3 *.

Latezz123 4 years ago

@ Fisherjjj

Oh... lol, sorry. My bad. I miss the unit conversion part. I'm just about to get it, I'm just 30 seconds behind 3 stars... I'll keep trying. Let me know when you got 3 stars for all missions!

Fisherjjj 4 years ago


I finally got 3* in yellow eyed mullets after tousend attempts. I casted out ~ 27 ft on the right side near the underwater stones, i used bass ribbontail lure, staying motionless I looked at right and left moving the finger on the lure on the touchpad to increase the number of fishes looking at my lure. I completed the mission at 08:10

For brook trout use recommended bait and just let it sit in the water after you cast

Fisherjjj 4 years ago

To earn xp and unlock levels you gotta catch fishes in free fishing mode. In taupo you can catch grass carps with 1800 xp.

@NSM yellow eyed mullets mission is hard, I did it once then tha game resetted and I'm not able to do it again btw it seems that to attract those mullets you have first to reel in a little or tilt than stay motionless.

Fisherjjj 4 years ago

When you are out of energy and you wanna play you can change the time on your device, the energy will be restored but remember that the balance can't be defrauded: you will pay more time to restore later.

Can someone please tell me the correct winding method for catching snapper? I've tried jigging, winding fast and slow, leaving it staitionary and nothing works! Help please

Fisherjjj 4 years ago


To catch snappers, once you see the snappers, just stay motionless, the bait will sit on the bottom and the snapper will eat. Sometime is useful let the bait sit on a rock so you have more "skyline" to look to.

Fishermansfriend 4 years ago

@fisherjjj thanks! It worked but now I'vejust finished lake eyre challenge 10 and didn't get any new missions, do I have to do something to activate it?

Fisherjjj 4 years ago


First of all you should get 3* every challenge to earn all the missions' xp but from level 30 aren't enough. It means that you must fish in free mode a lot to unlock levels, to me grass carps in taupo are the best 'cause most of them have more than 1000 xp each. A shark or marlyn have average of 800 xp...

Silver 4 years ago

Make sure you are catching flathead mullet. Some of the fish look very similar. Also, i noticed some people mentioned they had to restart their game from the begining because the game reset by itself. This happened to me. When I loaded the game I was at the menu where you have to pick a fisherman to start a new game. DO NOT pick a new fisherman and start a new game. All you have to do is turn off your device and when you reload the game all of your progress will still be there. This has happened to me 2 times and I was able to continue my game by simply restarting.

If you are having the problem where you can't catch a brook trout and complete the mission here's how when the screen just loads in where you cast your line you will see ripples in the water. Cast THERE and let your bait sit

Tench 4 years ago

CAn't catch enough tench in five minutes...bullheads always come grab it first even when casting at the water ripple. Any advice?

Pablo 4 years ago

Try a very slow retrieve for tench. When the lure is retrieved slowly it doesn't seem to attract the catfish only tench. Additionally, I have read about people's games resetting on them. This almost happened to me. I opened the app and it asked for my name and said, "Let's go fishing" like it was the first time I played. I exited the app and then killed it in task killer. When I reopened everything was fine. I have done this twice now and saved all my info. If you are prompted to enter you name like it's starting over don't do anything. Just kill the app and open it again. Thank god because I would've quit.

Huy 2 years ago

Catch salmon: choose surface bobber or the same kind of lure.go to Naheul huapi , in the corner lake. So

1 on your maximum left side there were salmon and grass carp in there

You need to reel the lure to attract salmon so that they will bite your lure.

Catch blue marlin: choose surface bobber (90% attraction) .(i have caught about 16-18blue marlin maximum weight is 471,8lb and 149 in) in the Bahamas open sea, on your maximum left side there were blue marlins.

1 blue marlins have to near from you about 2 blue marlins so: reel your lure when it starts coming to you, tift the lure ( move your iPad,iPhone on your right side) ( if blue marlin turn around when you stop reeling your lure, whenever you reel tift again, they never bite) ( IF it don't turn around and just go ahead to you, keep tifting, don't reel until blue marlin bite )

Those instruction based on people skills named ( fish attraction).

Thank you for reading
