These have about a 1 in 100 chance of being inside the shellfish traps underwater. It's pretty easy to farm one. Just get a water breathing buff or item and swim in a circle opening traps. It took me about 30 minutes to get one. If you are alliance on a PVP server, I'd suggest farming these in off hours when horde are less likely to be in the area.
Well I guess I'm the unlucky one then, I lost track of time but when I finally got it I had 250 shellfish in my bags -.-
random is random ;P
Don't farm these to sell, you'll waste a lot of time. Just get yours and move on, cause there's probably about 10 horde druids trying to farm these.
Attempted to farm one of these for over 2 hours. There were also HORDE farming in the area. we kinda made a round robin looking. and got NONE. If you have a lot of time or if your gaining exp by killing the mobs in this area then by all means try to farm one. BUT otherwise you might be better off buying on AH. I would say 1-200 chance but then again I opened 200 and got none.
Once you are lvl 44 you can obtain a better fishing rod. The quest is attainable at 44 but requires you kill 15 mobs between lvls 48-50. However these mobs are non-aggro turtles, it should be a breeze to party with someone for a few minutes, kill the turtles, and go collect your nice fishing rod. Not nearly as time-consuming as opening a bazillion shellfish traps.
Get thee to Revantusk
How unfortunate. I myself have picked up so many of these by grinding shellfish that I suppose it would have been be wise to sell them at the shared AH. Last time I found one of this I have to leave it behind because my bags where full and i didn't want to waste time. Btw, horde gets payed for the shellfish...
Alliance fanboys don't.
I have had horrible luck with this. I've tried for many hours to get this and still don't have it.
I got in first try so luck.
The good point to that traps is the way to get fishes and trade with npc to farm golds :)
(i got my mount is that way heheh)
I had read horror stories about people spending hours trying to farm for this fishing pole. I think it is much easier to farm the gold and just buy it off the AH. I bought mine for only 5g, so almost no time was investing in attaining this item.
Check your AH and consider farming gold to buy it rather than searching shellfish traps.
For casters that aren't warlocks, the hydrocane makes this farming go faster.
Man is this a pain to get. I spent at least 2 hours looking for this to no avail. The only bright spot was that, being horde, I was able to make about 5 gold with the shellfish i got from the traps. Still no fishing pole though.
I guess the fact that I got this just 5 nets, and not only that but I stole it from a member of the opposite faction (killed him as he looted it), makes me a lucky S.O.A.B. :)
I got 4 of thses 1 after another between the hours of 6:30-7:00 Am
Took me four days of coming and going because of other hordes or allies in area wiping out traps before i could get to them. Take potions or items that will help with air breathing and/or swimming.
Without you will need to stop at the fissure in between each trap.
To get (horde only ) mounts this will take alot of time its about 3-6g and hour without air or swim spells.
i got mine on the 6th trap i open so i must me superlucky xD
after gathering 44 shellfish and encountering numerous empty traps I gave up. it's not worth it.
Unfortunately, this spot has become a speedbot magnet. The last three times I've gone there (on two different realms, no less), there's been a player with a speed bot racing between traps, farming them all up. It's always been a hunter, too.
Got mine on the 10th try.
It took me about an hour and approx 100 shellfish. I figured out a pattern to search the shellfish trap with out using any potions or swimming to the surface. Start at the Bubbly Fissure located at 19,81 (We will call this bubly #1). Basically run a circuit to trap #1 19,82 then to Trap #2 19,82 (yes, fairly close to each other), then back to Bubbly #1. Next goto Trap #3 located 20,79 then to bubly #2 19,78. Once your full on air swim to trap #4 19,77 and back to Bubbly #2 for a fill up. Then do the longest swim to trap #5 21,80 and then back to orignall Bubbly #1. That's it, just repeat the circuit and eventually you will get the fishing rod. Notice 1/4 of the traps you open will release a lvl 33-34 lobster you have to kill. If you not high enough lvl you may run out of air fighting these so be carefull.
Got mine 4th Drop
I had to create an account just to tell you how lucky I am.
A lot of the posts are saying that this one is a rare find so I went to Desolace while I was doing Nat Pagle's Artisan Fishing quest to see if it's as hard to find as they say. I got one after the tenth trap. I thought it weird at first, seeing as it didn't even take me ten minutes to get this. So I tried another trap right after and I got another one. o_0
I'm of the opinion that Blizz improved the drop rate for this. Either that or I was just lucky. >.<
Haha, got one on my 2nd trap ;D Dam for once I am lucky! :)
Got mine on my eighth trap. Took all of 15 minutes on my level 30 character, without any swimming gear or buffs.
Well, I did the quest in Shatt and vendored the rod long before I took up fishing. Blizz needs an alternative : /
Has the drop rate been upped? I've gotten 3 already from just opening about 7 cages or so.
I know in the past I've spent hours trying to farm them on my warlock for her fishing.
I farmed on my 66 druid for about 2 hours before it dropped. I found a nice rhythm and made about 7 or 8 full circles before it appeared. I was >this< close to giving up, too!
I got mine in a little over an hour. It can get frustrating, but it will eventually show up, and it's definitely worth it, as to buy it at AH will cost you at least 20g.
i got this on my first try i must been lucky
Actually, there is a Horde quest,
Catch of the Day
, which requires you to bring two Bloodbelly Fish to Nataka Longhorn, an NPC at Ghostwalker Post. In order to receive the fish, you need to do the
Fish in a Bucket
quest for Jin'ar Zillen in Shadowprey, and that in turn requires you to bring him 5 Shellfish. So it doesn't necessarily mean that people are farming for the fishing rod when they open these shellfish cages. I wasn't, for instance: mine dropped while I was completing the quest.
Since this is the only fishing rod of this quality available to the alliance, it is worth grinding for, however, it takes a long time. Farmed this for a good two hours.
With 132 Shellfish in in my bags and 2 hours of my life gone forever, the rod finally dropped. This is an important pole for Alliance fishers so yes it's worth farming, but do yourself a favor and check the AH before you begin this potentially epic endeavor.
i just got seth's graphite fishing pole. req 200fishing. much nicer rod. gets 52stam too
Whoa! I'd prolly did the quests for the fishing pole's because i couldnt get the quest anymore. But now i went to the Shellfish Traps i got my Big Iron Fishingpole withing the 6th Trap in 5 minutes! :)
If you're an idiot like me and vendored your fishing pole rewards before you decided to level fishing, this is the best pole you can get besides the one from the fishing contest in STV.
) - New TBC fishing rod available pretty easily to pretty much anyone above 60
) - Fishing contest reward. Not only do you have to WIN the fishing contest, but you have to choose this rod over the (
I don't know if I should be ^&*!ed, or glad. I'm still in shock.
Lvl 70 Dwarf Hunter, doin the Nat Pagle quest for Fishing 300, figured I'd loot while the pet fights. It's on my way to the Desolace fish anyway. So, I pop a Nagrand Cherry (underwater breathing) and head for a trap. Surprised that they don't show as treasure, I went up, right click, and got the pole. 1st try.
Got mine on the very first cage, I was pretty stoked.
Added: After I got the pole on my first try I wanted to get another pole for my brother so I began opening more. Finally found the 2nd fishing pole after about 100 cages and got 2 greens, a few grey items, and countless shellfish.
1) On Balegund as of this post 210 shellfish traps opened and I've never seen this fishing pole.
2) Why not just go to the forest and smack the gnoll that drops it? (haven't tried given the drop rate, but on a nonpvp server I'd think this would be cake
3) Maybe you have to be lvl 70, but at 46 I do *not* get 50s every time I turn in the shellfish, I just get the fish he says he's going to give you....
4) The shellfish traps spawn lvl 27-32ish (?) agro mobs so don't think you're going to swim out there with a breath potion at lvl 1 and make a killing. (Tough if you can even get there unguarded at lvl 1 maybe you could farm there haha)
Acquired in 30 minutes or less. Hurray!
I'm liking 2.4 After many past attempts at retrieving this pole, I snagged it on the 3rd trap I opened.
I found two in 5 minutes.
Im Horde and just saw one of these at AH today. The guy that put it in is CRAZY! 300g buyout?!?
Dont he know that horde can get
in the 40's?
Might be good for a twink who want Stranglethorn fishing rewards, but 300g?
lol i got mine in the first trap :D

hi just thought id update i got 4 in an hour, so they must have upped the drop rate, i'd binned seth's rod on my alts but fishing daily is such an easy big money q thought id get this, also you can put the extra fishing line on and send it to any char
Got mine on the 3rd Shellfish Trap. Must of been lucky :)
Might be a good thing to farm thses and put them on the AH!
Kudos to calabacin for the guide, I like it very much.
Been at it for 2 hours, not a single rod dropped. Does not look like the drop rate has been upped, it's just the luck of the draw.
Too bad these things go for ludicrous prices in the AH (at least on Alliance side, on my server)
Engineers can use
to help farm this one.
Not too tough at all, got my first on my 2nd trap, and another on the 3rd trap :D
Guys, don't downrate me unless you have a reason!
Some tips on farming this item
1) Swim in a
circle so that you hit all of the traps.
2) Make sure that you loot them every time, even the trash. They don't change their items once you've clicked them, so leaving the trash there is a waste of time.
3) As mentioned above, some kind of water breathing buff is a useful, if not strictly necessary.
4) If you're a herbalist, this quest is much more lucrative and less tedious. There's lots of
in the region. I farmed out about 40g worth of materials in a half-hour. Expect this price to rise with WotLK
It helps to be a little bit higher level than the zone, so the lobster monsters don't give you any trouble.
These are still available in patch 3.0.2
Took me 3 hours and 295 shellfish in my pack before i got one.
Got it on first shellfish trap... seems luck was with me here... instead of all the times cool mounts etc. have dropped :(
after reading the commenst about how hard it will be to get one i went to the AH and no luck,so i stock up on underwater breathing annd got ready for a longggg night acording to the commments posted ,well dive right in and got it on my first trap......figures
I got the Big Iron Fishing Pole in 30 minutes from the furthest trap the NW of the end of the pier.
that looks like a lot of play time having to farm a stupid fishing pole when you can buy it off somebody in the AH for like 100g but then you can also make that 100g from questing and selling the gear in northrend for a hour and after you spend 100g theres gonna be better in 100 fishing lvls so whats really the point?
I don't see how hard it is for people to find one of these things, I got 5 on my first visit to Desolace, which was 2 hours long, form entrance from Stonetalon mountains to hearth to auberdine. It's selling 'em that's the hard part, no one wants to buy a fishing pole because, let's face it, who levels fishing?
Somehow I got lucky and found it on my 7th trap.
This pole seems extremely rare on my server. I checked its price with Auctioneer after getting it, and the price is over 1000g! Either very few people want to bother farming it, or there's a flood of lazy fishers with LOTS of money to burn.
Took about 20 minutes for me to bag on.
There you go, took 20 minutes for me too.
Huge waste of time. It's faster to get exalted with kalu'ak than to farm this thing.
It took me about 9 hours and 2000 shellfish to get thins fishing rod I was about to give up for the day and do quest it was in the morning around 11:00 am and I got it.
Took me 25-30 mins about 20 cages. Dont give up guys
got it on my first trap, i call it skill, not luck :D
sweet, i got one after only opening four traps
Changed to lvl 25 requirement 19 dps
I got mine in one try
Took 13 traps on one character and 35 traps on another.
It has never taken me more than 15 minutes or long enough to get the 10 quest shellfish to get the pole. I have done it with four toons. Just did it again today, it took me exactly 11 minutes. Just make sure you take an underwater breathing potion. I am going to try and get a second today. I do not know if having one in your bag will affect the odds of a second. Will post on it later.
Follow up: Level 35 Paladin. 30 Minute underwater breathing potion:
2 Fishing poles
- As I mentioned, the first came at the 11 minute mark. The second at the 30, as I was going back to the village after the potion ran out. Last cage.
In my opinion its better to do the quest for Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole.
I was wondering if this had got rarer (it was going for a few hundred gold on the AH and it was taking me a while to get). Eventually I got it after finding 86 shell fish so it seems that the rate is accurate.
I should have submitted this well over a year ago...
Yeah, I would say it all comes down to the roll -as usual. I remember it took me between 2 1/2 and 3 hours one time when I was getting one for my alt. I had a lot of time on my hands that day and was farming while working at the same time. So I stopped here and there for quick phone calls.
Anyways, several days later a guildie wanted one too, so I figured we can swim in opposite directions to cut the possible drop-time in half. Was handy to have a shaman to cast underwater breathing. So we hopped on Ventrilo so I could explain to him that the cages were laid out like an oval track course. That I would swim clock-wise and he would go counter.
He still had difficulty understanding, so I decided to have him follow me, so he can learn which way to swim and get familiar with where the cages were underwater. Never opening up a SINGLE one during the demonstration. So, we then went back to the "starting line" and were ready to begin after a good 15 to 20 minute explanation.
BOOM ! The very FIRST cage I looted, then Pole dropped. Bauhaha ! What makes it even more ironic is my wifey further up this thread also got her's a few week prior on her first drop as well.
Luck of the draw, I guess...
Just popped on some tunes and I got it my fishing pole in 1 hour, fairly easy to farm for if you get a good rotation going with the traps.
Using gatherer helps as well(you can keep track of each spot). I have gotten this pole prolly 6 times now for diff people and it has taken anywhere from 5 minutes to around 2 hours. Last time I got it was today. I finished in bout 20 minutes and having 42 shellfish. other times I have finished with 200+ the one nice thing about this is that it is not soulbound so you can use it for a new fisherman and once you get higher and get the Seth's pole or the arcanite one you can send this one to an alt.
I gotten this fishing pole on my 3rd try. ( 5/24/2010 ) It was very easy to get. But then I did as a level 80 :) But this fishing pole is well worth the time if you don't have the rep needed for the wotlk one, And starting out fishing. And it goes for 110g, on my server
Got this Fishing Pole on my THIRD trap. I'm guess they upped the %'s or I was just WAY lucky!
Still available after the Shattering 4.0.3a patch.
Whew... took me 376 Shellfish looted to get this. I was just about to give up when it popped. :)
Didn't see another soul besides me the whole time I was there, so it's easy farming indeed.
Possible Reference to the song Big Iron by Marty Robbins.
had to post, first trap...BAM!
This is weird..... I got mine on the very first trap---on the second trap--another big iron fishing pole ---- Has this happened to anyone else?
Just did this again. I got five in less that 20 traps. One of them had a mob that dropped Ironweaver. Check out screenshot.

i was very lucky and got the fishing pole the FIRST cage :)
If people are still interested in getting this particular fishing pole, then I just want to mention that the
are quite useful. The elixirs don't have a unique stack size (compared to the
Potion of Water Breathing
) but you have to be at least
I got 8 in 1.5 hours. Will send some to my alts and the rest to my friends =)
Just got 3 of these within 10 traps. Im guessing the drop rate has increased tremendously as of the last patch or so. Price for these should drop off alot if the rate has been increased.
It took me 20 minute of farming this one
The loot I got until the
about 40 seconds of farming, 5th trap.
I went to Desolace to get a pole for an alt. I could see the shellfish traps but I could not select or open them. I went to Shadowprey Village and picked up the
Fish in a Bucket
quest, but still could not select or open the traps.
For those of you having trouble looting the traps you have to have the quest Fish in a Bucket to loot the traps, BUT as you open the traps do not loot the shellfish. Once you have the 5 shellfish it will not let you loot the traps anymore and you would have to abandon the quest and pick it up again.
Just for some clarity, you can currently only get this pole if you're on a Horde alt and are able to pick up the Fish in a Bucket quest at Shadowprey Village.
The traps are non-interactable without the active quest in your log. If you complete and turn in the quest, you won't be able to get the pole on that alt, so don't do it! What I did was keep opening until I got the five Shellfish, then dropped the quest. Re-acquired the quest and tried again. Took me three times doing this to get the pole.
I tried the advice of simply not looting the Shellfish, but the trap remained sparkling and never disappeared, therefore it would never reset until someone else came along and took the fish.
I don't know when this change to the traps was made, but I was able to farm up this pole for an alt just fine during Cataclysm without having any quest in my log, Horde or Alliance. It appears others were able to farm the cages just fine without the quest previously in MoP, so this change must be somewhat recent, intended behavior or not.
No longer available apparently since MoP release although I only discovered it today. When you touch the traps nothing happens.
Today (5/12/2014) I picked up the quest and when I got the first shellfish I deleted it. It removed the quest from my log.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I just got the Big Iron Fishing Pole from the Shellfish Trap. I did have to accept the quest Fish in a Bucket from Jinar'Zillen. Every time I got 5 fish for the quest, I destroyed them, and the picked up the quest again. Did this about 5 or 6 times, finally finding my pole inside one of the Shellfish Traps. I should also note I was playing a Horde character to get the quest. Before having the quest, I could not interact with any of the traps.
Looks like you can fish these up in Draenor now, just caught one in Gloomshade Grove in Shadowmoon Valley.
I think things have changed now in how you can get this pole. With the advent of Warlords, and the previous posting, looks like the new home for the Big Iron Pole is with the big Iron Horde in Draenor. I ran this quest (fish in a bucket) all afternoon through two football games and all I have to show for it are six pair of skanky trash boots, one trash bow, one trash club, and ONE green. Everything else that came out of the traps were the shellfish for the quest and the Drysnaps that spawn. My guess is that since the pole is IRON that's what Blizz did with it. I've done this quest many times so I could sell this particular pole on the AH and with the amount of time I spent on this quest today I should have 20 to 30 poles to show for it. I got ZILCH! Makes me sad :( I'd be interested in knowing if Blizz changed the stats as well or if they're still the same. If anyone has any more new info on this pole I'd appreciate a posting...as I'm sure many other players would as well. Thanks.
I am now the proud owner of 5 x
Big Iron Fishing Poles
Fished them all up in Draenor while doing
Just fished mine up in Gorgrond in a small pond near the Bastion Rise.
The drop rate for this pole when fishing in Draenor has been nerfed big time. I haven't gotten one of these since the first few months of WoD going live.
I decided to try to get a couple of so poles for alts the old fashioned way, via the Bucket quest in Shadowprey Village. Several hours later and multiple alts, not a single pole was gained.
Might have been bad RNG, but I'm wondering if the pole was removed from the traps loot table since it now can be rarely fished up in Draenor.
lol - and here I though I was coming in with BIG NEWS!
Not so big, apparently. Fished mine up in Nagrand.
It's easier to get then finishing in Draenor. There is a quest in Desolace at Shadowprey Village, a troll village on the west coast of Desolace. A troll on the dock named Jinar' Zillen has the quest called (Fish in a Barrel). You can keep trying till you get a Big Iron Fishing Pole, you just have to abandon the quest and get it again after you've collected the 5 (Bloodbelly Fish), because you can't open the traps once you've collected the fish. (Do not turn in the quest when completed, just abandon it, and pick it up again).
I got mine on the first trap, I accepted quest (Fish in a Barrel), swam down to closest trap south side of the dock and blamo. Then I abandoned the quest after getting the 5 fish, and picked it up again. When I picked up the quest the 3rd time I got a 2nd Big Iron Fishing Pole, from the same trap, the one closest to south side of dock. (Coincidence?) Maybe.
Spent 10-15 minutes tops.
that drop the
used to be lootable all the time. Now, you have to be on the quest
which means that now, only Horde can farm these traps. Don't turn the quest in if you want to keep farming these. You will have to drop the quest when it is ready to turn in and reacquire it, you no longer have visible quest fish to toss.
However, both factions can now fish up the Big Iron Fishing Pole in Draenor.
The Big Iron Fishing Pole doesn't bind, so it can be purchased and sold in the auction house.
As of 12/8/2016 This pole still comes from the quest in Desolace. I did the quest three times and it drop from the cage. I would consider shift clicking on the cages. Then swim to other cages you have not opened yet. Then when you think you covered the area loot or just drop the quest. Then start again. On a side note I stop after two times and on my flight path I saw washed up shore pools in Desolace. Fished them to see what would drop. No luck. Coming back to start the quest again and on my second cage I got it.
In the past I've done this over the years. Its hard one to farm. Good luck to you all. I do have a screenshot. Yet I'm not very good at doing that sort of thing anymore.
As of this writing, the Big Iron Fishing Pole is no longer available in Desolace shellfish traps as a farm-able object. Indeed, the shellfish traps no longer open. I cannot confirm whether the quest to obtain shellfish from these traps is still viable. I thought to obtain one for a new toon.

If you are farming this open the cages with shift held down and don't loot the quest item, otherwise after 5 fish you have to abandon the quest an pick it up again. The old way of opening the traps has been thwarted because you can't interact with the traps after you have your 5 fish. Also do this on a 70+ character as there are mobs around who will attack you.
A character with water breathing or potions for underwater breathing will also help.
For those wishing for a more 'planned' route, here are the location of the cages.

Due to limitations of the macros, the location list is split into two macros. The '/cway' at the end of the second macro tells TomTom to go to the next closest point.
The pole drops from the trap
from the occasional lobster that pops. Alliance players: The
can be safely tossed No vendor value. (They're used for a Horde quest.)
Occasionally TomTom won't go to the next point, even though it's showing 0 yards. Right click the TomTom arrow and select Remove Waypoint.

it makes it go a tad faster. Hot key the mount.
Horde players: you will have to accept the quest
Fish In a Bucket
before you can loot the Shellfish Traps. No clue if the traps are lootable if you have already completed the quest. Alliance players: The traps are lootable without having a quest. Yea!
The pole has a 5% drop rate. If you believe that, with 20 traps listed above you should get your pole in two runs (40 traps). Yeah, right...
It took me 67 traps before I got the pole, so I think the "5%" rate is quite a lot too high.
As a Horde character, having to drop and re-acquire the Quest is a real pain, so I was doing this "2-boxing" using a druid grouped with another character level 30+ -- I shared the quest to the other character then whenever it "completed" I abandoned it and shared it back from the other character. Using the Jamba Quest addon I could automatically accept the quest, saving a little time.
Yes, it can still be looted from shellfish traps by a Horde character with the quest 'Fish In A Bucket'. Just keep dropping the quest and picking it back up. Don't give up!
