LEGO Fortnite: How To Get Bait Buckets? And Fish Locations

Get to know everything about the newly added bait bucket in LEGO Fortnite and learn how to craft and use it.

LEGO Fortnite now features an exciting new fishing mechanism that adds more fun to the gameplay. To fish, players can use a fishing rod and look for whirlpools in the game. However, it can be tricky to find them sometimes, and that’s where a bait bucket in LEGO Fortnite comes in handy.

Key Takeaways
  • With bait buckets, you create a whirlpool for yourself.
  • There are four types of Bait buckets that you can craft in the game, and each has different fish in their whirlpool.
  • A Whirpool is a small circle of waves with a highlighted color that helps differentiate it from entire body of water.
  • Grey, green, blue, and purple whirlpools represent common, uncommon, rare, and epic items.
  • You must make fish fillets using the food processor to make bait buckets.
  • Each fish gives different loot when you catch them.

There are, in total, 15 types of Fish in LEGO Fortnite, and each fish gives different loot. Like Bait buckets and fishing rods, fish are divided into four categories. Some rare fish give more than just fillets.

Below, The table provides all the information regarding each fish’s category, name, location, and loot:
