Get Started – The Basics – Hooked Inc – Epic and Rare Fish

Before we dive into the cheats, tips & strategy guide part, let’s learn the basics first. In Hooked Inc, your main objective is completing the collection of fish; common, rare, and epic. Epic fish appears time to time in the deep water; but to catch it, you will need to increase the fishing experience. All you need to do is swipe on it to deal damage(swiping the fish reduces its health. When the health of the fish reaches 0, you get the fish). But if you have a low-quality boat, items(equipment), low-fishing experience, you will not be able to catch the epic fish in Hooked Inc game. It sounds difficult, but it’s not. Upgrade the boat, items, and crews to progress.

Here’s the main screen guide – Hooked Inc

Tap the compass icon to check the locations; move to new areas instantly when you have enough money. At the bottom of the compass menu, you can check the fishing experience, earning bonus, stars. Tap the book icon to check the complete list of fish; rare, epic, and common. Visit new areas to collect new fish.

Fishing Experience – Fishing Experience increases as you catch the fist and earn more money. Tap the collect button to add it to the earning bonus. Here’s an example; you have 8 stars.

Hooked Inc Cheats And Tips: –

1.) Tap The Seagull To Get Bag Of Money

Every now and then, you will see a seagull or multiple seagulls on the screen. Pay attention to these creatures and when you see, tap them. These seagulls drop a bag of money and the amount would be very huge.

2.) Invest In The Crews

You should not use the green gems in any useless task(like purchasing boosts, boxes). Invest these gems in the crew department. Upgrade the top class crews and enhance their abilities. Yeah, spending these gems in upgrading the equipment would be a great idea.

3.) Collect The Fishing Experience At The Right Time

When you collect the fishing experience, you will lose the progress; boat upgrades, areas, money, quest progress. Except; crew upgrades, equipment upgrades, item upgrades. So make sure to collect the fishing experience at the right time. Otherwise, your progress rate will be down. When? When you have the double fishing experience to collect. For example; current fishing experience is 200. Collect the fishing experience when you have +200 fishing exp available. Next time it would be 400. And the earning bonus would be double.

4.) Watch The Ad To Spin

Tap the menu button(bottom-right corner) -> spin the wheel and you could get a bonus booster.

5.) Claim The Daily Gift

In the menu, scroll down below to daily gift menu. Claim the gift and get free gems.

6.) Appoint Yourself As A Crew

By connecting the game to the Facebook account, you can appoint yourself as a crew and that crew will grant you +250% increased fish value. You can upgrade this crew and increase the value by inviting the friends.

7.) Watch The Video Ad To Open Golden Box

Sometimes you get the golden box in the deep water. You can open it by watching the video ad. This box contains green gems.

8.) Don’t Participate In The Tournament

If you have just started playing it, then don’t waste your gems in joining the tournament. You would not be able to reach the top rank with poor crews.

  1. hey! thanks for the great tips! im currently playing & its come to the thanksgiving special. i can not for the life of me find this hidden object! my hint is “crew” but i have searched every where. i dont understand what they mean! if you could, it would be much much appreciated!

    • @Brandi Tap on the left side of the recruit crew label in the shop to reveal the first hidden item. Here is the picture of it: –
      Hooked Inc Hidden Object Event
      (Pops out when you tap that area)

      • Hi, I’ve tapped in that area about 50 times and it’s not working to get the casserole (if that’s spelt right) any help would be handy
        Thanks.

          • @Brandi @Jake Are you seeing stars in that area? I play on Android as well as on iOS and found the casserole at the same spot. For me, it popped out after I revealed the hint by watching video Ad. After that, there were some stars around that area(attaching the picture). To confirm, I installed the game on Emulator and found the casserole on the same spot. Thanksgiving Event

            Try tapping on the right side of it.
            Make sure you have an active internet connection.

    • @Brandi @Jake You have to play the game for 5 mins or so. It only appears after a period of time. It says ‘patients’ is the key. 👍🏻✌🏻

    • Even after following all your help still can’t get the 2nd object. Only found the 1st one after the update this morning… anyone else still having issues

  2. The second hidden object is candlelabra that you will find in perk menu. It’s on the left side of the coffee cup symbol(perfect planner perk).

  3. Wine bottle is the next object. Scroll to the very top of the map after clicking the compass icon. It is on the right behind the mountain.

  4. I found I had to go to the app shop and search for the game and then update – then folliowing the other tips of playing for a short while and watching the videos, I could then access the hidden items.

  5. Bread is the next item.
    Click the compass again, then click “collect” as if you wanted to start over again.
    The stars are red and floating above the guy’s head. Click the left side of his boat and the bread will appear.

  6. For some reason, it didn’t show up for me until I revealed one of the hints. In case anyone else has an issue getting it to appear, try to watch one of the videos. It appeared right after that.

  7. You missed the biggest tip..play u til you catch Shiny Tiger fish then quickly select Rush double tap it for even bigger rewards…kerrr..ching$$$

    • I found all the thanksgiving items and have the 300 gems but the game won’t let me buy the big reward. It says I’m 700 gems short, as if I didn’t find any of the items. I’ve backed out and restarted at the first location and nothing changed is changing.

  8. I still never got the Crankster XL. Hasn’t come in any of the boxes.

    Last item: Turkey
    Click the menu at the bottom middle of the screen.
    Click the Crew tab.
    Scroll down to the bottom and there it is.
