Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon is a new idle fishing game for the iOS and Android platforms. Your goal is to progress from sea to sea, fishing for rarer and bigger fish and upgrading your boat. You can hire your own crew, earn untold amounts of money and plenty of gems from your fishing ventures, and claim fishing experience to start it all over again with more boosts. Read on for some tips and tricks for Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon!
Swiping is your main method of catching fish. Swipe around the screen over the fish silhouettes in order to catch them, but don’t swipe too quickly or the swipe won’t catch them. As you build up crew members, they’ll auto-fish and catch fish for you. You can turn off your phone’s auto-sleep mode and leave it on the charger with this game active in order to catch massive amounts of fish automatically.
Your fishing experience will depend on both the number of fish that you catch and how expensive of a sea you are in, so you’ll earn far more of it in the Deep Sea than in Green Bay. Fishing experience combined with stars will decide how much of a bonus you get in income per fish that you catch, so if you’re going to do the auto-fishing trick above, the best place to do it is on the deepest sea that you can afford.
The more fishing experience that you have, the more damage that you’ll do every time that you swipe over the Big One. So if you can’t catch the Big One on the current sea, claim your experience and then try it again. It will show up faster too, because it shows up when you make a specific amount of money. So once you have about 1,000 experience, it will show up almost immediately in the first two seas.
Make sure that you have an internet connection before you try to watch a video to claim the gold boxes for free gems. If you don’t, then your only way out will be to either X out or click outside of the pop up window. Click outside of it and the box will stay there, but hit the X button and the gold box will go away. Only use this option if you have a backlog of boxes and can’t earn anymore without getting rid of a few boxes.
Some of your crew members will have an auto-fishing bonus, which creates a buoy. The buoy will automatically catch any fish that touches it. Drag it into the path of an entire school of fish to make it easier to catch all of them whenever a school pops up.
