Fortnite fishing hole locations: Blow up fishing holes at Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and Steamy Stacks

Likely one of the final Fortnite challenges you’ll tackle during season 5 week 6 is the one that requires you to blow up fishing holes at Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and near Steamy Stacks. It’s different from the quest given to you by Turk, in that you must destroy one fishing hole at each location — not three fishing holes at any location. Because of this, it will take you some time to visit all three spots. The other important thing to keep in mind is that you must first complete the challenge for destroying three motorboats before being able to start this one. You can do that by shooting the motorboats found by Sharky Shell.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll be ready to blow up some more fishing holes. Here’s everything you’ll need to know about blowing up fishing holes at Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and near Steamy Stacks in Fortnite.

Lazy Lake Island

Much like Turk’s quest, the easiest way to complete this one is to hop in a motorboat and use its explosives to take out the fishing holes. We’ll have an image of the map that features the motorboat, along with a general location of a fishing hole (though keep in mind, they do appear randomly). Remember, you can destroy fishing holes at each location in any order, but we’ll go south to north in this guide.

Start by landing just north of Misty Meadows and hop in the motorboat. Then drive north so you’re around the islands that make up Lazy Lake Island. Shoot a fishing hole, as indicated by a school of fish and a circle of white water on the surface.

Lake Canoe

Next, quit out or make your way to Lake Canoe, which is the body of water found between Lazy Lake and Dirty Docks. You can use the nearby motorboat at the dock to take out the next fishing hole.

Near Steamy Stacks

Finally, land at the beach to the west of Steamy Stacks where you’ll come to a long stretch of water. The motorboat is at the shallow end on the southern side of the narrow stretch. Take control of it and destroy your final fishing hole to complete the challenge.

Once you do, you’ll earn 20,000 XP for your troubles. This one can be time-consuming, but from our experience, it’s fastest to just quit out of the match after you’ve destroyed a fishing hole at one location. Then jump back in to get the next one, rinse, and repeat.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best landing spot. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference.

In this guide, we'll show you six of the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.
