What Enchantments should you place on your Fishing Rod in Minecraft?
The Mending I Enchantment is a must-have for your fishing Rod! Mending causes the XP you get to go into replenishing the durability of your fishing rod. Whenever you fish you will get XP, therefore your Rod won’t break with the Mending I Enchantment.
The Unbreaking (I, II, III) Enchantment is meant to increase the strength of your Fishing Rod causing it to deteriorate slower. This Enchantment is not really necessary to put on your Fishing Rod if you have Mending I on it.
Having the Luck of the Sea (I, II, III) Enchantment will aid you to have more luck while fishing for Items. This is the Enchantment you’ll 100% need to use for better luck.
Lastly, The Lure (I, II, III) Enchantment is also amazing to have. This Enchantment will help you fish more fast.
