My Fishing World best fishing games for Android

Humans have been fishing for as long as we’ve existed. We do it for sport, for recreation, and many still do it for food. In this day and age, not everyone has the time to pack up their gear and head out to the nearest lake or river. The good news is that those people still have some options if they want to catch some fish, although we admit it’ll never be as good as the real thing. Here are the best fishing games on Android! There is another one coming down the line that we haven’t tested yet. It’s up for pre-registration on Google Play now. At least it is at the time of publishing this article. We’ll add it to the list on the next update if it’s any good!

The best fishing games for Android


Price: $2.49

3DCARP screenshot 2020

3DCARP is one of the few pay-once fishing games. It features eight lakes and four rivers where you can catch up to 28 different varieties of fish. There are a ton of minor details that set this game apart from its peers. Certain fish will jump out of the water once hooked, you can use bait boats, and even climb trees to help you find more fish. It’s not the most popular fishing game out there. However, it seems like one of the most solid fishing games available right now. Just make sure you try it out before the refund period ends because the game hasn’t seen an update since 2018 so bugs may never get fixed.

Ace Fishing: Wild Catch

Price: Free to play

Ace Fishing is one of the most popular fishing games out there. The features for this one include the ability to customize your fishing tackle, travel to a variety of places, catch a variety of fish, and more. There is also a global leaderboard to see how your catches compare to the world. Catching a fish isn’t particularly difficult, but the mechanics are fun. There are even a couple of basic fishing tactics required to catch fish. It is a freemium game. That is by far the worst thing about it.

The Fish Master

Price: Free / $2.49

The Fish Master - best fishing games android

The Fish Master is a simpler, arcade style fishing game. You drop your line down and haul in as many fish as you possibly can. The game has upgrades that let you reach even greater depths for more fish. It also has idle game elements. You earn money as you do stuff, even when you’re not playing the game. You can obviously tell from the screenshots that this isn’t a serious fishing game. However, it played fine during our tests and seems like a good way to kill a few minutes. The full version of the game costs a single $2.49 and we like the lack of freemium mechanics in this one.

Fishing Break

Price: Free to play

Fishing Break is a simpler fishing game. In this one, players will be catching hundreds of different fish from eight different locations. You’ll also have achievements to earn, leaderboards to climb, and quick, but challenging game play. The graphics are simple, but that’s okay. In fact, realism might actually make this game worse. It’s the kind of game you play while waiting in line at the store or for commercials to end. As long as you don’t mind that, it’s a fun game.

Fishing Hook

Price: Free to play

Fishing Hook is one of those fishing games that tries to focus on realism. It’s a fairly basic game at its core. You’ll spend most of your time out on a virtual boat with your line in the water. The mechanics are a little weird. They aren’t overly difficult, though. The game also features challenge fish, achievements, rankings, and support for up to 16 languages. It has some unusual bugs regarding permissions and the Galaxy Note 5. However, for most, it should be a positive experience.

FishingStrike is one of the newer Android fishing games, comparatively speaking. The game plays a bit like most freemium fishing games. You catch a bunch of fish, rank up (or unlock) gear, and go for even more fish. You can catch up to 500 different varieties in a number of different places. Additionally, the game has virtual reality and augmented reality elements that help give it a more modern twist. We really like how the game doesn’t restrict you with silly energy restrictions. You can play as often as you want to. It’s something different and surprisingly fun, just be wary of those in-app purchases.

Let’s Fish

Price: Free to play

Let’s Fish is one of the bigger fishing games. It features over 60 locations and 650 species of fish. There is also a ton of fishing tackle to collect and use. Unlike most, this game also features an online multiplayer mode. That does include the usual things like leaderboards. However, it also includes a PvP fishing duel mode as well. It’s something a little bit different from most. The downside is that it’s a freemium game. That means the PvP is probably a little bit pay-to-win. It’s a strong showing overall as long as you don’t mind the freemium stuff.

Master Bass Angler

Price: Free to play

Master Bass Angler is one of the better arcade fishing games. Unlike simulators, it doesn’t make you wait very long to do things. Fish bite practically right after you cast the line. The game features several locations from around the United States, various upgrades to your equipment, and more. It also has no registration required. The freemium strategy is actually really nice with this one. It has an energy system and advertising. However, you can eliminate both with a single in-app purchase. That’s a lot better than having to do it more than once. There is also an online multiplayer.

My Fishing World

Price: Free to play

My Fishing World is one of the most beautiful fishing games on the list. It boasts realistic fishing locations, day and night cycles, and a simple enough game UI for just about everybody. Additionally, you can unlock a bunch of tackle and even chat with other players online while you fish. It’s fairly evident that the game’s looks are the major attraction here but the game play isn’t half bad either. Just watch out for the free to play elements and you should enjoy this one.

Rapala Fishing

Price: Free to play

Rapala Fishing is an arcade style fishing game developed by Concrete Software along with Rapala. It aims for a more realistic experience. It’s not perfect, but it doesn’t do badly either. You’ll also get to play as often as you want. The developers boast that there are no energy bars, timers, or anything like that. It’s still a freemium game, though, so don’t think you’re getting off too easy. There are also daily tournaments, various activities, and other things to do.
