On the quest Like Fish Passing in the Night and I cannot find a merchant who sells spoon worms.

Or bloodshore for that mater....

Any help?

Anyone found any legendary fishing spots? I had assumed they'd be marked on the compass like Mature Trees on my BTN, but apparently they aren't. =/ (Or I'm just missing them.)

You probably have already found out that the hot fishing holes are marked in your fishing log, not the main map. IDK about legendary though.

I believe I found one, marked in the fishing log with the same fish icon, but with two sparkles. Regardless, I'm fairly sure the place you fish up Tiny Tortoise is a legendary node.

Bait varies vendor from different areas. The top tier 46-50 bait will give you a better chance on getting the more rarer fish. Weather/time also determines when they'll be caught. I caught Little Thalos at lv50 with Northern Krill during rain weather from 5pm game time til night when I ran out. Tiny Tortoise is caught at Salt Strand (Lower La Noscea) around 45-50. I used N. krill, but I heard sinking minnow can be used as well.

I was fishing for Mahi-Mahi when I decided to try something... Fisher is able to set cross-class actions from Miner and Botanist, right? I set the Ward abilities and decided to pop one on some off chance that it'd let me get crystals while fishing. It did not.

However, I did receive a permanent buff from using a ward that said, "Affinity to -element- is increased while gathering." It stayed on when I'd move spots after getting the fishing for too long message. I'm going to test each ward effect and see if a certain one increases the odds of getting Mahi-Mahi. (And before anyone says it's gathering/perception related, I have all HQ fisher AF gear melded with perception+ and gathering+. I'm currently at 299 gathering and 255 perception.)

To clarify, I'll be fishing at the recommended time (10-6) with only one ward up. I'll count each cast I do, and count each NQ and HQ I get.

I've been fishing in Cape Westwind just north of Revenant's Toll for Silver Sharks. Use rat tails and mooch HQ moby things. Sometimes you get a Wahoo though, so far it's been 50/50. I've only double mooched once and it was a silver shark, so nothing amazing.

I just go to Costa de Sol with Lv1 Lugworms. The only thing that bites are Mobies. :x

This is my fishing route so far:

Level 1-5
Limsa Lominsa - Lower Decks; Bait: Lugworm

Level 5-10
Nym River - Middle La Noscea; Bait: Crayfish Ball

Level 10-15
Swiftperch - Western La Noscea; Bait: Goby Ball

Level 15-20
Fallgourd Float - North Shroud; Bait: Crayfish Ball

Level 20-25
Fool Falls - Upper La Noscea; Bait: Crow Flies

Level 25-30
Verdant Drop - East Shroud; Bait: Bass Ball / Crayfish Ball

Level 30-35 (you can come here around 27 but I just stayed at verdant drop so I didn't have to waste more gil atm teleporting and using different bait)
Western Thanalan. Moondrip using chocobo fly

Level 35-40 (did these and got to 35-40 in probably around less than an hour).
Coerthas River - Coerthas; Bait: Honey Worm
The Perks of Politics - Observatorium Leve
Hands Off Our Fish - Observatorium Leve

Now I am stuck at 41 because I don't have any gil and the only class I can unlock more leves is at 38 and I need to get to 40 and I'm too lazy to do that atm

Level 30 - 35 Costa del Sol Spoon worms.

At 35 you learn sandfishing.

L 35 - 40 Southern Thanalan, Sagolii dunes, Sand Leech.

Once you hit 37 you can equip a heavy iron jig and fish for Hammerhead Sharks at the Silver bazaar. This is a gilmaker, not a good leveling fish.

You can also equip a sinking minnow and fish for Red Coral at Reaver Hide in Western La Noscea (outer Sahaginistan.) This is both a gilmaker and a decent skillup area. I took it to 45.

At 45 you learn Cloudfishing and head to Coerthas Central Highlands, sea of clouds.

At 45 I went ahead and did leves at Mor Dhona on fisher to make the last rush to 50. Do only
Awash in Evidence - Saint Coinach's Find Leve
Snail Fail - Saint Coinach's Find Leve (this one you can trade in 9 snails. I suggest HQ for the 200% EXP bonus)
Sleeper Creeper - Saint Coinach's Find Leve

Doing these will also get you the bait that Mahi-Mahi baits to... sometimes. :x

EDIT

muh fisher :<

1. Fish at Bloodshore at between dusk and dawn (potential Silver Sharks) and Hidden Falls during day (Black Sole).

2. You can pick up a normal Iron Jig and do this at 32. All but 2 reel-ins have been Sharks so far.

If you want to fish only for silver sharks, buy Lugworms from the field craft supplier in Limsa. The only fish that'll bite are the Lv3 fish at Costa del Sol; which are the fish you mooch for Silver Shark. Since it's "live bait" also, it'll attract the fisher faster than an iron jig would.

I added the specifics for convenience mostly. Fullmoons give great exp as well as the ability to be mooched for Silver Sharks. Admittedly, your perception probably wont be high enough to reel in HQ's reliably, so it's mostly for the exp.

And the jig was for Hammerheads, not Silver Sharks. I stopped at 30 NQ and 5 HQ Hammerheads. and like, 6 or 7 random low level fish.

Welp durp. My brain completely left out "hammerhead" lol. And since fullmoon sardine are used for Deviled eggs, I don't mooch them. What I'll do is use Lugworms to get the Lv3 fish, which can also be mooch'd for silver sharks, and fish for those during the day. Then, at night, switch to bait for Fullmoon Sardine and then just farm/gather the rest of the mats to make deviled eggs. HQs tend to sell for 5k a piece on my server.

The achievement: A Fisher's Life for Me: Eorzea gets you the Rod of the Luminary

Has any one tried to get this? people say that you have to catch a number of fish but it says on the read mores on the achivements like from levels 11-20 and so on.
Does that mean you actually have to attain those levels with it or is that just an idea how much fish you have to catch?

When it says Level 11-20 it's the number of fish you have to catch at level 11-20 fishing spots. Same for Botanist and Miner Luminary tools. A lot of grinding.

Edit:21,960 fish total.

Why these? Have you found a use for GPs in fishing? Have you another high level gathering class? Or just apropriate type jewelery with materia slots?

I have been wearing tanking jewelery just to spritbond and convert.

Noticed the rod has the exact same stats as the rod you get for level 50 fishing quest. Does it have some hidden effect? What's the point of getting this if not?

What makes a legendary fishing hole legendary?

I can see The Salt Strand because you can fish up a minion there.

Cape Westwind, where you can catch the Titanic Sawfish isn't one. The stars of a legendary fishing hole are at an otherwise undistingushed puddle next to it.

Were Diciples of the Land not down for me I could cite more examples.

P. S. Where does one catch the tadpole?
