Key Takeaway

You can catch Tuna by going to certain locations and tapping the reel button rather than releasing it completely when your fishing line turns red.

When Spirits request certain food, you’ll sometimes need Tuna to complete the recipe in Spiritfarer. There are a few different types of Tuna. Though catching them is not easy, there is a trick to it.

    The Trick to Catching Tuna

    Tuna are notably difficult to catch, but there is a simple trick to it. Begin by fishing how you usually would. When it’s time to reel in the fish, hold the same button down that you usually would to reel it in. However, when the line turns red, you will need to tap that button rather than release it completely. Once the line turns yellow, return to holding down the button. Repeat this until you reel in the Tuna.
