The Minecraft 1.7.2 update included the new ability to enchant fishing rods.

Fishing rods can be enchanted

What enchantments can my Fishing Rod receive and what do they do?

  • Should this be down voted like crazy, because it shows no research effort? – jacen.garriss Dec 3 '13 at 15:48
  • @jacen.garriss asking that question is irrelevant, the people who feel it should will downvote it, the ones who don't wont. – Ender Dec 4 '13 at 17:57

From the official Minecraft Wiki page on enchantments there are two new enchantments specific to Fishing Rods, and one existing enchantment has been added:


Decreases average time between fish biting your hook.

Luck of the Sea

Lowers frequency of "junk" catches by swapping them to fish.


(100/(Level+1))% chance a use reduces durability. On average, lifetime is (Level+1) times as long.

  • Also Unbreaking: the version notes mention that all tools can have Unbreaking now. – SevenSidedDie Oct 27 '13 at 0:41
  • @SevenSidedDie thanks! I'd looked for the fishing rod icon in the other sections, must have missed it. – Billy Mailman Oct 27 '13 at 1:14
