* The ''Franchise/{{Suikoden}}'' series has fishing minigames, that double as ways to collect special items and armor (or worthless junk like old shoes.) Of particular note is ''VideoGame/SuikodenV'', where it takes the form of a competition between [[TheHero the Prince]], Subala, [[BumblingDad Logg]] and Lun. Notably, it doesn't really matter if you win or lose the contest; you keep everything you caught regardless.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' was going to have a fishing minigame, but it was dropped during development. The UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS VideoGameRemake would later bring it back.

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' was going to have a fishing minigame, but it was dropped during development. The UsefulNotes/Nintendo3DS VideoGameRemake would later bring it back. It's the most elaborate one yet, with a wide variety of fish to catch, and two separate locations (the Swamp and the Ocean), each of which have fish that can't be found in the other. Many fish require use of the transformation masks or other masks to find or catch.

* ''Videogame/Yakuza0'' has Fishing as one of the minigames available for both of the protagonists. Depending on where you are and what you're using, it's even possible to catch a ''great white shark'' using a fishing pole.

* Many ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure'' players found Big the Cat's fishing-based story [[ScrappyMechanic annoying]]. It was shorter than the other modes and had little relevance to the plot.

* All ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games feature this trope as a fairly enjoyable but not particularly essential side activity. Occasionally fishing may trigger rewards or bonuses in the game. In ''The Island that Grows with You'' (a.k.a. ''[[VideoGame/HarvestMoonIslandOfHappiness Island of Happiness]]''), catching and shipping 50 fish is the only way to get a certain character to move in. In the [[VideoGame/HarvestMoon1 original game]] you could only fish in a single pond however future games give you a fishing rod.

* ''VideoGame/{{Skylanders}} SWAP Force'' has a fishing minigame. It's first introduced in an early level, where you must capture piranhas to make a river safe. It pops up in a few main and side areas after that, and a fishing hole gets added to [[TheHub Woodburrow]] so you can play it any time you like.

* Fishing makes up a MiniGame for most of the ''BreathOfFire'' games. At one point, if you get a strong enough rod, you can actually snag treasure chests, or even fish-creatures named Manillos, who sell you stuff and usually [[YourMoneyIsNoGoodHere charge you fish]].

* ''VideoGame/TheSims: Castaway'' for the [=PS2=], PSP and DS all have fishing "mini-games". On the [=PS2=] your sim stands next to a school of fish with a spear, then has to wait for a fish to jump into the air in order to stab a fish. On the DS the scene actually changes to a mini-game where you stab the fish with your stylus. Not sure about the PSP version.
