Amazing Breath of the Wild trick lets you catch hundreds of fish with barely any effort

Whatever you think of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, there’s no denying that it’s systemically rich. It’s always surprising and people are constantly coming up with inventive ways of taking advantage of those systems.

Whether you’re setting up a rock to instantly smash into a tough enemy when a fight starts or you’re using your telekinetic lift to create a makeshift flying vehicle, there are hundreds of ways to make the game do unexpected things.

Today I learned another new trick. Did you know that you can fish in Breath of the Wild by whistling? You did? You are a big liar.

Apparently, if you whistle near fish in Breath of the Wild, they swim away in the opposite direction. So all you need to do is float on some debris or raise and ice block in the middle of a lake and you can force the fish to beach themselves on the bank.

Here’s a video of it in action:
