El's Extreme Anglin' doesnt have much info either
I caught this fish in the Pools of Aggonar in Hellfire Peninsula after 38 casts.
Not sure if it was bad luck or if it's supposed to take that long. I'll try SMV next time, which is apparently the only other location it can be fished from.
In Shadowmoon Valley there is a pond called " The Fetid Pool".
First cast and I got my snapper. I hope this helps.
My fishing was at lvl 275+20pole+100adaptar.
I am going to try it without adapter.
Caught one on my second cast, just east of the Ruins of Baa'ri in Shadowmoon Valley, 63,41. Fishing skill 482 at the time of the catch.
That is by far the creepiest icon in the game.
Please, don't tell us how many casts it took. It's completely random.
really easy quest! you just go to the pools of green stuff in Shadowmoon Valley or Hellfire Peninsula (I'm not even going to say what I think it looks like) and cast your rod in it. I was at 375 and didn't need a bobber but I still used because it's fun to be drunk off your ass. A few casts or so and you should get it.
2nd cast in Fetid Pool in SMV
You can actually fish it from LAVA too :)
Did so today near altar of damnation, got it on second cast.
First cast 31.30 in SMV
Edit: One week later, second cast @ same spot.
walked right next to some druid fishing near the Pools of Agganar, first cast and i got what i needed. 38 casts what a joke
Some people may keep saying "It's completely random" but I strongly suggest the fetid pool for this quest.
I went to the pools of aggonar three times (17th, 35th, 9th catch was the lucky one) and to the fetid pool 6 times (1st, 1st, 1st, 2nd, 1st, 2nd catch). I was either extremely lucky or the fetid pool is simply the better spot.
Also, you can stand at the middle of the wrecked fel reaver without aggroing anything and your bait will always land in fishable waters.
Edit: Two more times at the fetid pool -1st and 2nd cast
I'd go with the Pools of Aggonar also.
Here's my question, and I'm surprised that no one else has brought this up yet. It seems that this is the fish for the daily fishing quest every day, I'm guessing there have to be others, but that's really besides the point. Fact being that since it's the quest so often, can you catch multiple fish and store them for the next day, saving yourself a trip to SMV to cast once or twice and then back to Old Man Barlo once every day? I haven't tried yet to see if I can catch one with one already in my inventory, but I'm going to go try it right now and give up if another isn't hooked after about 30 casts. Because man, if you CAN catch a bunch, I'd spend 5 minutes and have the daily fishing quest done for a whole month in one shot. It doesn't say unique or anything, just quest item - but I'm guessing Blizz thought of this before I did and probably prevent it somehow. Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with this?
i can confirm - first catch in Fetid Pool at 26,41.
Regardless of whether or not it was coincidence, I got mine on the first cast in the Fetid Pool as well. Call it chance or whatever, but with all the above posts it seemed like a good idea to try and what do you know. But do what you want. You've got nothing to lose but your own time going elsewhere.
Another quick cast from Fetid Pools (far west of SMV); 3rd try. I'll attempt next time it's the daily but it seems we're getting more and more people going with this, so assume its a fairly high drop rate out of the fetid pools.
First catch in the pools of aggonar
As of the 3.0.8 patch, it required 9 casts before i was successfully able to fish it up.
sigh... I miss the 100% drop for the fishing dailies.
Please notice that you need 280 fishing, dont do the same mistake as i did ;)
Caught after my 8th cast with a 218 fishing skill,
Seth's Graphite Pole
, and 1
Aquadynamic Fish Attractor
The pools next to Wildhammer Stonghold gave up the beast in 2 casts with Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole and 330 fishing skill so 360 with no lure. (40.1, 59.7) just fyi, looks to be catchable in all the green waters.
This is probably well known but:
Do not be in a raid group when you're quest fishing
It took me 80 or so felwood snappers before i realized that i was still in a group.
Good news is that my skill went up by 8 or 9!
Found mine at 17,27 at shadowmoon valley, its the river between trrekor forest and SMV. It is the best place to fish it out ^^ 3rd cast got one.
got this little fellow on my 7th cast at 26.9, 41.6 with 278(+100lure) with a regular fishing pole.
Fetid Pool is certainly the place to do it. I caught one with only ~234 fishing (and Nat's pole) there in ~10 tries. Went to Hellfire first and had gone through 20+ casts without getting it.
got it after my 283 cast at fetid pool
For those without some coord addon (but geez!, get one already!), just look on the SMV maps for the "OL" in the second word of Legion H
d, there's a green pool just under those letters, that's been a great spot for this.
For lower level toons doing this, there are two pieces of some machinery in the pool you can sit on and fish without getting aggro from the nearby mobs. Best to have a flying mount to get here, of course. And the last half dozen times I've fished for this, got it within two or three casts. Simple and easy daily quest to complete!
7th casts in Pools of Aggonar
Go mine after about the 10th cast in the Pools of Aggonar with a skill level of 253 with no lure.
Do not get discouraged if you do not get on the first cast, got mine on the 10th, just stay in one spot as noted above, and fish. It will be the second fish when you loot the "lure".
15 casts in the pools of aggonar, easy quest.
If you don't turn the quest in right away, the fish dissapears!
first catch at pools of aggonar 300 skill fishin lvl
lol i jus got the quest item after to casts first 2 casts i end up getting Fellblood snapper x2 i went to the Magma Fields at shadow moon valley Cords 29.91, 38.60 and didnt used any lures :)
