Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The only way to get the Obsidifish and Flarefin Koi is by fishing in lava with a Hotline Fishing Hook, so mass production of Inferno Potions makes the Hotline Fishing Hook integral.
    • This does not apply to the Desktop version, as you can now get lava bait to fish in lava with any rod as of version 1.4.0.1.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite the Golden Fishing Rod having more fishing power than the Hotline Fishing Hook, it cannot fish in lava Desktop Version without lava bait.
  • As of 1.4.0.1, any fishing pole can now fish in lava using Lava Critters. However, the Hotline Fishing Hook can still be used to fish in lava even with non-lava bait.
