Let us reel Message Bottles in with an Sea Fishing Rod

Recommended Posts

Message Bottles have an unfortunate tendency to spawn in rivers and lakes if you base near those, which makes them go to waste, cause it's either too expensive to collect them or literally impossible if the river/lake is too narrow.

That and, even if they spawn in open coastal ocean, it's fairly tedious to get your boat there.

Sea fishing rods should definitely have this functionality for all drops in the ocean. you shouldnt need to go to the ruins and craft a forager to make gathering simple drops in the ocean bearable

Yeah, it's just I bring up the message bottles specifically, cause I think that for other items (such as salt crystals and seaweed drops), we need something that's capable of collecting multiple items at once. Like a fishing net. (But possibly without the fishing part, since that would kinda devalue the actual fishing mechanics?)

Yeah, this would be great not only for collecting bottles but also for collecting an item that lands in the water just barely out of reach from the player.

Another idea is to implement the "retrieve" mechanic from Shipwrecked to get those items that are just out of reach.
