*puts on literal fish hat*
My life is complete. Satisfaction has been achieved eternally.
Tirion! You hold a grim destiny in your hands, brother - but it is not your own!
Place the Fish Hat upon my head, Tirion. !
It's a fishing hat. That's an actual fish.
What more could you possibly want.
Confirmed to be obtainable via fishing in Darkmoon Island - my friend just fished one up going after the Sea Pony.
EDIT: Uploaded 2 screenshots, one normal, one using the "Summon Pool" spell, as it has a special animation.
Just got one from a sealed crate, fished from a shipwreck debris at the Faire. It's a great look!
Just got one from fishing in open water at the Darkmoon Faire (directly at the docs). After looting it I had to test it immediately, and it did - exactly as advertised - instantly summon a "Shipwrecked Debris" in the water in front of me (in convenient fishing distance). Nothing special in there for me though, but I uploaded a picture of my toon fishing in Stormwind Canals with this beautiful cap on my big grey furry head :).
As shown on the item tooltip, summoning the Shipwreck Debris works only if the Darkmoon Faire is open, BUT as long as the faire is open, you can summon a Shipwrecked Debris in any fishable water - you do not have to be on the Darkmoon Island. Also, the "Shipwrecked Debris" counts as if you where fishing on Darkmoon Island - at least for the quest
- so while on the quest you will be able to catch
anywhere in Azeroth at a rate of one or two fish an hour :).
Small side note: I nearly made a capital mistake by casting it directly at the docs. The "nice" orc lady standing next to me immediately tried to grab my debris. No luck for her though ^^
Note on transmogrification: You can NOT transmogrify another skin onto the cap.
The same is true for e.g.
, but that item can be transmogrified onto other cloaks.
I also tried transmogrifying the cap's design onto another fishing hat (
), which unfortunately couldn't have worked anyways, as
has no real armor class and therefor would normally not be transmogrifyable onto anything that has an armor class. Transmogrification onto the only other fishing hat with no armor class that I could find (
) - and vice versa - failed too.
I was fishing on one of my new alts to get to 75 fishing and caught this today with only 10 skill and was catching garbage. Also found out I could catch out of the debris with that little skill as well!
Originally it had no cool down but now has a 1 hour cool down ? Not in such a hurry to fish this up now. Nice vanity item but that is about it.
Got this item today, nice fun looking thing. I used the cooldown, and got a pool as mentioned before, it was easily within range. Fished up a sealed crate and then it was gone.

Love the expression on that panda in the screenshot. He look's so satisfied with his life now that he got his brand new Fish Hat for his birthday.
You should get a fish hat for your birthday too, and wear it
forever, just like Mr. Panda. You should join us...wear a fish hat today...be one of us..⊙_⊙ (it's good for you! סּᴥסּ)
The pandaren on the screenshot looks so relaxed.
After some speculation that this item may be difficult to fish up on alts with 600 fishing skill, and indeed, I failed to get this cap after about 1300 casts today on my main, I took an almost never played alt that didn't even have fishing trained over to the DMF.
Got the Cap on my 10th cast.
Now I have to wonder if getting this cap may be bugged on those with max fishing.
I just got this Cap today while fishing for the Sea Pony. I submitted a couple screen shots of my Warlock using the Cap.
The cap is of a deep sea fish that has one of them glowing 'fake' bait things hanging in front of its mouth. When you USE the use the cap to create the wreckage the little hanging bait 'Star' lights up and then your hand flings the light towards the direction you're facing and when the light hits the water the wreckage appears.
Has anyone fished this up outside of the Darkmoon Faire event? (ie leaving an alt on the island and coming back after the Faire has left town)
I've been fishing for about 15 hours now... no luck at all
Recieved this on a level 19 after about... an hour.
-Was a raw cast, not a school-
-Fishing level (220)-
>>>Trial Account<<< fml
Still yet to get this on my main twink after 20 hours
4 days and a half fishing allready and still no cap...
have many players with 425+ fishing on a paid account, no luck.
i log onto a trial account i have, and my level 20 paladin gets the hat within the 5 casts to catch the 5 fish needed to turn in for DMF fishing quest.
this is beyond RNG, don't wanna hear it...something is wrong
Just got it after an hour and a half outside of the rabbit cave while going for one who didn't get away. Was at 738 buffed fishing I level.
I just got a
from a pool created by this Cap while fishing outside the Violet Hold in Dalaran. So it seems like the pools function as though they're in Darkmoon Island waters.
Has anyone who has gotten the fishing cap also have a Weather beaten fishing hat? ive seen alot of posts saying low lvl alts with no fishing are getting the darkmoon cap and it would stand to reason that they wouldnt have this item, but a lvl600 fishing person whos every did a fishing daily more then likely has it. alot of people have been saying it has something to do with the brawlers guild invitation how you can only see it if your 90, could there be somekind of fishing hat connection where if you've already gotten one you cant get another like with the sea pony?
this is my 4th fair fishing for this hat (i dont even want to know how many fish ive cought) :/
As long as the Darkmoon Faire is going on, consider using this at the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza to fool other players into thinking that it's actually a pool that contains Tasty Fish.
The fins on the sides wave back and forth and the star "lure" on the front bobs up and down.
I'm not totally sure what it says about me that I have my head stuck in a fish that has a lure like that. Did it troll me and I took the bait?
Just got it while doing the Darmoon fishing quest, wearing Weather-beaten fishing hat and skill at ~460 ; so, happy to try it on, I create a shipwreck debris pool, in which I cast and
I get the

probably the most appropriate icon ever.
Cute hat . I would like to have a similar hat with lobster or crab .
I thought it was a joke...surely thousands of casts on your main would get it - and certainly a couple of casts on a lowly alt wouldn't get it.
...lo and behold - over 6000 casts on my main and nada. But my lowly alt at fishing skill of 30? 15 casts.
Open water (not from a pool) near the docks.
For some reason, you can't put it in the
Okay, I browsed through the comments and haven't seen the answer I am looking for......Is the item carried over from one faire to the next? Or will it despawn like the
Odd, I had no idea this existed until I fished it up. I use wowhead uploader but it still shows the same amount of "Loot" numbers looted. It's nice to have though :D
Has anyone really fished up this cap with 600 skill?
2500~3000 casts on my main with 600 skill and I still haven't got one...
To get the cap I wouldn't mind to cast more if that's just because it's really rare.
But I've seen a lot of people claimed that they can't get the cap either with 600 skill...
Is this a bug? Has it been fixed yet?
Seems a leveling toon has better rng with this item vs a capped toon =-(
To add some more data, I got this earlier on my 88 hunter with just under 500 fishing (I think it was 495).
I fished up this cap while I was farming for
in darkmoon island.
I caught it at 600 fishing. My buffs lead it up to 725, but it is very doable. I got it on my 265th catch. Fishing buddy says .4% based on my luck.
I was fishing for the Sea pony, which my friend came on his alt and managed to get in 5 casts. His fishing was at 30 or so. I still have yet to get the fishing pony.
I just finished fishing 200 times in the darkmoon faire docks, and i have gotten 3 of these now, so either i'm really lucky or there is a bug
I had no clue that this was that rare....I was sitting next to a guy fishing yesterday who got this and didn't have a clue what it was...lower drop rate than the turtle that is ridiculous
i want it!
Just fished this up from the dock to the left of the portal.
270 fishing skill, no special rod, no bait, no pool, nothing. And I wasn't looking for it, either. I had heard of it, but I figured the drop rate was so low, I'd never see one. Guess I was wrong.
Has anyone caught it with 700/700 fishing? ANYONE?
Is it possible to obtain the "Sea Turtle" from the pool this creates?
my Darkmoon faire fishing hat doesn't work
Just caught with 700 fishing level. No bait no pool just open water. Good luck
In 3292 casts I've gotten:
Darkmoon Daggermaw: 2964
Sealed Darkmoon Crate: 185
Bloated Thresher: 126
Tugboat Bobber: 7
I was at 830 Fishing Skill the whole time.
Still no sea pony or Darkmoon fishing cap :(
I'm surprised and a little disappointed that there's no achievement tied to fishing this this up.
I somehow managed to catch it with 398 fishing and without even knowing about its existence...
got it just now on a 101/110 toon fishing level 504/800 and about 25 casts this session and i was trying to get it.
I was completely unaware of its existence until today. I found it in a
, at level 29, when fishing it up gave me a 302 fishing skill.
Can spawn pools outside of the Darkmoon Faire with this! Caught 2 crates in Mulgore.
I just got this today, I started at fishing skill level 300 and got it at 499. Keep in mind I had 205 extra points of gear, so my effective skill was 704 when I caught it. I was not sure whether or not it was considered a junk fish so I spent part of the time fishing without any gear. This is not the case I caught it on the same catch as a Darkmoon Daggermaw. I ended up with 597 Darkmoon Daggermaw, 2 Tugboat Bobbers, 1 Darkmoon Fishing Cap and a metric ton of assorted vender junk.
I've recently (patch 7.3.5) fished for
I now have
catches (via FishingBuddy) and I still haven't seen the shadow of any of those.
No pools and w/ 800+ skill (more than 800 doesn't seem to affect the catch-rates of the common catches).
Have I been unlucky? If Wowhead's catch-rates are correct, then yes.
The chance that you won't recieve these in

(1 - 0.30%)18044 = 2.85e-22% for
(1 - 0.35%)18044 = 3.34e-26% for all 3
I'm a bit afraid it might not even be possible to catch these w/ 800+ yet I'm still not 100% convinced.
Darkmoon Isle has skill-based fishing and some fish / trash are uncatchable at 800 skill.
Have these rare catches become uncatchable by the same mechanism by mistake?
I've seen tonnes of fishermen with < 700 skill catch the Cap.
I *finally* got this cap! I ended up maxing my monk's fishing skill going after it, made a lot of progress on my mage's skill and ended up catching it on a level 25 alt with an 80 fishing skill. It was off the dock, her first cast while doing the
I caught one of these on my priest, so long ago I don't remember what her fishing skill was. However, I still have the first one in her bags, and caught another at 800 skill. Since they are unique, I closed the loot window.
Fished up on my Pally with 1074 fishing on 7/5/18 (NA). Had no idea I could fish up a hat I was STOKED. Fished up the Horse last time it was in town too. Just to let everyone know with 1074 fishing I caught the horse and hat. Going to southshore for the fish boe.
Fished up the hat today in under 25 casts after the hotfix that removed trash drops. Had a classic fishing skill of 300/300, with all other fishing skills being at 0
Well it still drops, I had given up hope after many thousand casts over the past 5 years. Got it today. I am max fishing on all levels, and have been using my legendary fishing pole the past few years after it. I decided to mix it up thinking maybe the legendary pole goofs it up so bought a plain Fishing Pole from the fishing vendor on the docks and after about 30 casts I got it.....Not sure if coincidence or not.
I submitted a screenshot showing the drop where I got it and in the action bars you can see I have the plain Fishing Pole equipped.

Fished up today on a new alt.
Fishing skill of 239, fished straight from the sea (not ship debris) along with a Darkmoon Daggermaw.
Didn't use any special rods, baits etc, just the standard cast.
I have fished up 2 of these today, hope I didn't break the RNG. I've been fishing for years without sight of it and was pretty happy about the first one, the second one was on low level alt with a 103 basic fishing level with the default fishing pole; it came up with an Empty Rum Bottle grey trash & a Bloated Thresher from open water next to the docks.
As of 8.2 it appears that the hat no longer has any appearance, and will just show up as an invisible hat when you wear it. It still has the same effect, just no appearance. Very strange.
Just fished this up off the darkmoon dock ramp. 536 casts at around 100 fishing skill (80 kul tiran + buffs).
I was also using the Underlight Angler.
If you're spamming fishing and clicking quickly... make sure to leave enough time for the loot to be auto looted. I fished this up and recasted my line too quickly, so it didn't go into my inventory. Good luck to everyone else, may you have better fortune than me.
Got it after 8 hours of fishing
Just got two of these within 5-10 casts of each other. Too bad it's unique.
Is there much of a point to the ability to summon a pool of Shipwrecked Debris? I guess it's just flavor.
Caught within approx. 200 casts from the docks.
Using the default fishing rod i.e. no rod equipped. Maximum Fishing skill for all expansions.
It really doesn't matter what skill level you are or equipment used, the drop rate is set in the loot table. Just a very low drop rate with large swings in RNG.
Fishing pools only ever require Fishing skill level 1 for a successful catch.
Hopefully this will help someone else out.
Here is my experience.
I did 940 casts and did not get the
with a basic fishing pole bought from the vender on the docks, I did 43 casts and was able to get it.
I don't know if using the different pole works but if you are having an issue I'd say equip a basic pole and not use any buffs and see if it helps.
Rarity string for this item, fished in open waters in DMF:
Decided to test the drop on this based ideas in the comments.
I fished from the Darkmoon Faire dock/ramp for all 1,000 casts.
1st 500 casts
Pole: Fishing Pole (as noted, some found success with a basic pole)
Shadowlands Fishing: 200/200
Skill Bonus: +33 with gear, hat lure, lager, and totem
Darkmoon Fishing Cap: 0
2nd 500 casts
Shadowlands Fishing: 200/200
Skill Bonus: +48 with pole, gear, hat lure, lager, and totem
Darkmoon Fishing Cap: 0
So, the good news is it doesn't seem to matter what you use, it's all luck.
Is this item transmoggable?
blizz bro let us transmog this
Was able to transmog this to a piece I had saved in an outfit. After that, I got straight up blocked from re-transmogging it. So, I guess it's stuck as Dazzling Spectacles forever.
