Fishing at Cragstone Falls

Guide to Fishing

  1. Obtain a Wood Heart or Golem Jo.
  2. Head to one of the Tackle Masters (see list below) and hand him either of the two items to receive a Fishing Pole.
  3. Hand him a Trade Note (10,000) to obtain the right to fish for 20 hours.
  4. Equip the Fishing Pole and target a Fishing Hole (using the "R" key works fine).
  5. Once you have caught fishes, you can hand them back to the fishing hole to increase your fishing skill. You can view your current skill on the Character Information panel (yellow backpack icon on the interface).
  6. Skill points awarded vary by fish type (see below). As your fishing skill increases, you will be able to catch larger fish.
  7. After a catching a certain amount of one fish type (see below), hand one of that type to the Tackle Master to receive a title token.
    • Important| Once you have caught 400 Minnows, talk to the Tackle Master immediately to receive your title! If you catch 600 Minnows before talking to the NPC to receive your Pond Scum title, you will *ONLY* receive the Skipper title, and will not be able to receive the Pond Scum title!
  8. You can also fish other items out of the fishing holes including rusted weapons, jewelry and rare finds such as housing items.
  9. Fishes can be given to the Tackle Master for expired potions and sometimes pyreals. The bigger the fish you hand in the better the reward will be.

Raising your Skill

Handing the fish you've caught back to the hole will often give you points in your fishing skill, depending on the message you receive upon doing so:

  1. If the message comes that the fish is stunned, you get no points:
    • It seems a bit stunned, but after a few seconds it swims away.
  2. If the message comes that the fish swims away strongly, you get 1 point:
    • The fish splashes happily into the water. It seems shaken, but swims away strongly.
  3. If the message comes that the fish splashes happily (without the swimming), you get 2 points:
    • The fish splashes happily into the water.
    • The fish splashes happily into the water. It seems fine and swims away quickly.
Fish type Skill req. Points awarded
Minnow 0 0
Guppy 0 1
Molly 50 1
Fish 125 1
Large Fish 225 2

* The normal, uncoloured Fish as used in cooking does not gain you any points.

Dialog

Tackle Master

Tackle Master tells you, "You need three things to be a good fisherman."

Tackle Master tells you, "First, you need a fishing pole. I can make one for you, but I'll need a Golem Jo or a Wood Golem Heart to assemble it. I remember my first fishing pole, it was just a stick with some string. I couldn't catch a cold with that thing."

Tackle Master tells you, "Second, you need a fishing license. I sell licenses for a C note, allowing you to fish for a whole day."

Tackle Master tells you, "And last, you need patience. Just enjoy the peace that fishing brings and talk to your fellow fisherman, but don't believe all their fish stories, heh."

Tackle Master tells you, "Here take this fishing guide. It has everything you need to know."

Tackle Master gives you Fishing Made Easy.

Tackle Master tells you, "I license fisherman for a C note. That covers you for an entire day."

Tackle Master tells you, "If you still need help getting ready to fish I sell a good beginner's fishing guide for only a few coins. Just hand me whatever you can and I'll give you a guide."

You give Tackle Master Wood Heart.

Tackle Master tells you, "Your giving your heart to me? Bwahaha, just joking, this should make a nice pole. I'll just carve it and assemble your fishing pole. Wait here a moment."

Tackle Master gives you Fishing Pole.

Tackle Master tells you, "There you go. The string part with the hook goes into the water and you hold onto the stick part. I can't tell you how many beginner fisherman just toss the whole thing into the water. Of course they always claim they lost it to some huge whale or something."
Handing in Items

You give Tackle Master Fishing Made Easy.

Tackle Master tells you, "Oh, I guess you don't need this. If you already have your fishing pole, just give me a C note and I'll license you to go fishing for the day. The license covers all fishing holes run by the Department of Fish and Games."

You give Tackle Master Trade Note (10,000).

Tackle Master tells you, "So you want to go fishing, eh? Ok then, lets see here..."

Tackle Master tells you, "You know, I used to fish back in Ispar. One time I had this giant fish on the line and it was a real fighter. Had to lash... oh, right, sorry, you're all set. Remember the license is only good for a day, so catch a big one before then!"

Tackle Master tells you, "Oh, I also supply the local grocers with fresh fish, so I'll buy your catch from you if you like. I pay a lot more than most grocers will, because I know the fish are fresh. Good luck and remember to throw the small ones back."

You give Tackle Master Trade Note (10,000).

Tackle Master tells you, "Welcome back! You'll be wanting a license..."

Tackle Master tells you, "Hmmm, money... put you down on the list... Ok, you're licensed for the day."

Tackle Master tells you, "Don't forget that I'll buy your catch if you're willing to sell. Good luck and remember to throw the small ones back."

Tackle Master tells you, "I see you're already licensed to fish. Make sure you have your rod ready and don't crowd the other fisherman. If you still need to get a fishing pole, I'll give you the instructions for a few pyreal."

You give Tackle Master Pink Minnow.

Tackle Master gives you Expired Health Draught.

You notice what looks like a date scratched out on the side of the bottle.

Tackle Master tells you, "I get these potions wholesale from the healers!"

Tackle Master tells you, "You know, I just have to release these little ones. Why do you bother to keep catching these anyway? Have you heard of a thing called catch and release?"

You give Tackle Master Yellow Minnow.

Tackle Master gives you 10 Pyreals.

Tackle Master tells you, "You know, I just have to release these little ones. Why do you bother to keep catching these anyway? Have you heard of a thing called catch and release?"

You give Tackle Master Orange Molly.

Tackle Master gives you Expired Health Potion.

Tackle Master tells you, "Just hold your nose when you drink that."

Tackle Master tells you, "Thank you, come again."

You give Tackle Master Large Brown Fish.

Tackle Master gives you Expired Health Tincture.

Tackle Master tells you, "What? No, that potion is still good! They get better with age, like wine."

Tackle Master tells you, "Thank you, come again."
