Why do you think Jesus chose to appear to the disciples in this way?
During the second appearance of Jesus He specifically sent them to preach the Gospel, But now instead of going and preaching the goodnews of salvation, they had gone back to fishing. They forgotten thier commitment to our Lord to serve Him full time; and followed their old ways habit. But our Lord`s attitude towards them are loving, humble- instead of waiting. He went to them. Jesus seemed to tell them If fish is what you want, I will give them to you. But is this what you really want? Our Lord loves us very much. Even when we have backslidden, He still loves us and patiently waits for us to return to him.

I believe Jesus was strengthening their faith by appearing in this way. He knew they had many trials and tribulations ahead of them in the spreading of His Word and they would need these memories of Him to press on and keep their faith strong.

Then Jesus came and took the bread, gave it to them, and the fish likewise. This reminds me of the Eucharist distribution. He doesn`t fish himself but encourages them to do so.Is he calling us to be actively trusty in him? Help yourself and God will help

Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish

After these things, Jesus revealed himself again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias. He revealed himself this way. Simon Peter, Thomas called Didymus, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, "I'm going fishing."
They told him, "We are also coming with you." They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. Jesus therefore said to them, "Children, have you anything to eat?"
They answered him, "No."
He said to them, "Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some."
They cast it therefore, and now they weren't able to draw it in for the multitude of fish. That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved said to Peter, "It's the Lord!"
So when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he wrapped his coat around him (for he was naked), and threw himself into the sea. But the other disciples came in the little boat (for they were not far from the land, but about two hundred cubits away), dragging the net full of fish. So when they got out on the land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid on it, and bread. Jesus said to them, "Bring some of the fish which you have just caught."
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fish, one hundred fifty-three; and even though there were so many, the net wasn't torn.
Jesus said to them, "Come and eat breakfast."
None of the disciples dared inquire of him, "Who are you?" knowing that it was the Lord.
Then Jesus came and took the bread, gave it to them, and the fish likewise. This is now the third time that Jesus was revealed to his disciples, after he had risen from the dead.
