Your evolution in the game is measured by experience points (XP). You can acquire them in two ways:
- Catching fish. Any caught fish (does not matter if you keep or release it) gives you experience points: the bigger the fish, the more experience points you get. But overtime as your experience grows, the number of gained XP points will be slightly lower for catching fish of that same size.
- Fulfill achievements. Any achievement gives experience points as part of reward.
When you get a certain number of experience points, your player level will increase allowing you to buy and use better tackle or to access new fishing areas. The amount of XP points needed to get to the next level can be found in table below. You can see the level requirements for certain tackle or fishing locations in their descriptions. While playing, you can see your current level and progress indicator at the top of your inventory or map screen as well as on the small pop-up window whenever you catch a fish.
