What are Fishing Hot Spots in New World?

Fishing Hotspots are areas in the water in New World that area somewhere in a Hotspot Area. It is a very clear circular area that looks like fish are swimming under. Active hotspots will have fish jumping out of the water within these ripple areas. These hot spots increase your chances to catch both bigger and better (more rare), fish.

What Do The Stars Mean on the Hotspot Icon?

As you level your fishing skill, you will unlock fishing hotspots around Aeternum. These hot spots come in three types: Broad, Rare, and Secret, each with a different star rating (1, 2, or 3, respectively). Be sure to seek these out and try fishing in these areas when you see the ripples. Here is a basic breakdown on what is the difference in hotspot ranks. This table shows the New World hotspot respawn times, how many fish per active hotspot, and what fish chances each give.

Many of the fishing hotspots are actually hidden as well. Some you will not be able to see any icon on the map, but they do exist. You will need to identify them by eye as you encounter them. As you level up, you will begin seeing more and more hotspots available to you. Upon reaching fishing level 200, you will unlock 3 more as well.
