Genshin Impact Bait Guide: All Bait Recipes and Fish Types

Genshin Impact version 2.1 added fishing to the game, and players can catch all kinds of different fish as long as they use the correct bait. There are currently four types of bait in Genshin Impact, and each type of bait will only attract certain types of fish. In order to get more fishing bait, players need to learn the recipes and craft them themselves using the correct ingredients. Fortunately, all four bait varieties are cheap to make. Here's everything you need to know about bait in Genshin Impact, including crafting recipes and what bait to use for each fish.



All bait types and recipes in Genshin Impact

There are four types of bait in Genshin Impact, and each of them is listed below along with their crafting recipes.

  • fruit jelly baits
    • Wheat + Sunsettia
  • Redrot Bait
    • Dendrobloom + Poultry
  • Fake worm bait
    • Slime Condensate + Baies
  • Fake fly bait
    • Pr√™le + Sakura Bloom

To obtain bait recipes, you must go to the fishing association of each region. You'll need to catch and hand over Medaka Fish to buy bait, so check out our fishing spots map to see where you can find some. Once you get a bait recipe, you can craft it at a crafting bench.


What types of bait attract each fish?

Some fish only respond to certain types of bait. You can catch a lot of fish with basic bait, but if you're trying to catch rarer fish so you can buy something like The Catch, then you'll need to expand your bait collection. Here are the fish attracted to each type of bait:

How to use the bait

Once you have bait in your inventory, head to any fishing spot and you will be prompted to select the fishing rod and bait of your choice. The best fishing rod to use depends on the area you are currently in. When it comes to bait, the game will only allow you to choose bait that is currently usable at that fishing spot. Simply choose one of the available bait types and cast your line.
