There are only a few enchantments that can be used on fishing rods in Minecraft, but perhaps the best among them is the Luck of the Sea enchantment.
Luck of the Sea is generally underrated, yet it is one of the best enchants a player can use in Minecraft for so many reasons. The following provides a brief guide to the Luck of the Sea Minecraft enchantment, including how it works.
A Guide to the Luck of the Sea enchantment in Minecraft
What is Luck of the Sea?
Luck of the Sea is an enchant that increases the chance of collecting rare loot via fishing.
When it comes to fishing, there are three possible categories of loot: fish, treasure, and junk. Naturally, fish is the most common of these, followed by junk and then rare items that are considered treasure.
Like other enchants, the Luck of the Sea has three possible levels: I, II, or III. If the fishing rod has a higher level, then the chances of catching fish actually decrease. However, the change is quite miniscule, amounting to only a few decimals.
With every Luck of the Sea level, the chances of fishing up treasure enhance significantly; it increases by about 2 percent with each level. The odds of catching junk items decrease significantly as well, diminishing by 2 percent at every level.

The above CaptainSparklez video provides great tips for Minecraft players who are looking for any kind of enchantment in the game.
When it comes specifically to Luck of the Sea, it can be obtained via an enchantment table, enchanting a book or finding an already enchanted book in a loot chest. Interestingly, it can also be found through fishing up a fishing rod with Luck of the Sea already enchanted onto it.
Why gamers should use Luck of the Sea
As mentioned, Luck of the Sea will increase chances of fishing up treasure whilst decreasing the odds of catching junk or fish. Below is a list of potential items that can be obtained via fishing.
- Name tag
- Enchanted fishing rod
- Nautilus Shell
- Tropical fish
- Lily pad
- Leather boots
- Water bottle
- Rotten flesh
- Ink sac
- Tripwire hook
While it may feel a bit tedious to fish for these items, it might save the effort that would otherwise be put into obtaining them individually through other methods. Especially when it comes to ultra rare items like name tags, fishing is probably the easiest way to obtain them, and Luck of the Sea will further increase the probability of finding one.
On top of all of this, fishing is one of the easiest and quickest ways to gain XP in Minecraft. Therefore, Luck of the Sea is definitely worth the investment for players who seek cool items and high XP levels.
