What are fishing rods used for in Minecraft? As the name implies, you use them to catch fish such as cod, salmon, tropical fish, or pufferfish. The tropical fish is the rarest of these, with only a 2% chance of dropping. Fishing is the simplest way to gather food in Minecraft, especially if you travel a lot and don’t have time to farm.
But did you know that you can also catch rare items like enchanted books, bows, name tags, saddles, nautilus shells, and even fishing rods? Fishing for these items is obviously much more difficult and requires a lot of luck to catch them but it’s fun and relaxing at the same time.
