MS2 Fishing Compiled Mega Guide

Q:Looking for tips, locations, and lure info.

A: It says what type of lure is required to catch the special fish type you’re going for by clicking on the picture of the fish in the fish album. I don’t have tips or recommended location spots. Although, based on the description of the special types of fish, it says that it’s in any type of water so I’m assuming that as long as you’re using the right bait then you’re good anywhere. Goodluck!

Q: So I don’t know if this is more a question for another thread or this one but I’ll ask anyways. Would anyone on this thread know where to find how many fish I’ve caught, and where to sell them? I’ve been catching fish but I can’t find said fish in the fishing tab in the inventory so I’m not sure if it’s somewhere else

A: They should be in your Misc. tab to sell to store.

Q: There are new fish that aren’t on this list with unknown locations like Shrubberpuff, Voldrake.

A:Those are not new, they can be caught at the island you can get to by asking the character in Evansville.

Q:Does anyone know if you have to complete the mini game for fishing to catch fish you’ve never encountered before?

A:You don’t have to complete mini game to catch new fishes. Tried multiple times.

Q:Does it mean there’s no way to catch Footballfish right now?

A:Correct, the Footballfish cannot be caught until the relevant chaos raid is released.

Each fish gives Mastery the first time you catch it, 2 for Normal, 4 for Rare, 6 for Exceptional and 8 for Epic. Each fish you catch also has a chance to give Mastery as well, but the chance decreases the higher up the tiers you go.

HOW TO MAKE MESO WITH FISHING:

IF YOUR A LOCAL FISHING MASTER AND YOUR FISHING IS AT ADVANCE 1 YOU CAN TEST YOUR LUCK ON GETTING THE 80 MIL WEAPON SKIN! GOOD LUCK YOU HAVE A 0001.% CHANCE ! Being a Master Fisherman is very beneficial for making mesos, trophy farming, and getting prestige points especially if you need to afk. I fish in Coco Island using the auto-fishing vouchers found in Mapleopoly, and the various spin wheels in Queenstown (you can use merits to extend your auto-fishing time). Auto fishing vouchers can also be traded between your characters, so give it to your main who I hope is a Master Fisherman.

I pop a golden lure to catch special fish that you can sell for 1k, 10k, and 100k. The real money comes from Heavy Pearl Oyster box. A lot of the items found in the boxes can be sold on the black market for a lot of money, especially the special lures which can be sold for over 100k a piece and they come out of the box in sets of 2 or 3. You can also get trophy items that many trophy hunters are buying to up their score, sell these fast they are dropping in price. A few weeks ago I was able to sell spotlights for around 180k, but now I’m lucky to sell them for 20k. Quick tip, I made over 10m off selling herbs alone.
