There are two enchantments that affect the outcome of fishing:

Lure, which:
  • Decreases the wait time between fish bites
  • Decreases the chance of treasure and junk items
Luck of the Sea, which:
  • Increases chance of treasure
  • Decreases chance of junk


To catch the most fish, it is suggested using a fishing rod with both Lure III and Luck of the Sea III
To catch more treasure, it is suggested using a fishing rod with Luck of the Sea III only. Lure III will reset the chance
At Lure VIII (unobtainable without the use of the /enchant command), fish bite the rod instantly
At Lure IX or above (also unobtainable without commands), nothing can be caught
A fishing rod with Lure III and Luck of the Sea III has no chance of catching junk
