    Would anyone be kind enough to post the text of the rare fishing book 5 or 6 that has been mentioned as a rare drop that explains the locations for the rare fish? Thx in advance.

    Forgive me if I am wrong, but I don't think anyone has gotten #5 or 6. I just think it was mentioned as a possibility.

    Have any of you legendary fisher people gotten these two books?

    I got book five the other day off of like a 102 point order. I haven't seen book 6 yet. But would assume it is the rest of rare fish such as the winter dragon fish.

    What other rare fish are out there that haven't been mentioned in Book 5? Apart from the Winter Dragonfish, I believe I read about one called a Lantern Fish. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and based on the name and being told in an old thread that the location is somehow tied to the name... I am going to guess Wind for the Lantern fish. Just a wild guess tho...

    Rare fish like the king fish, lantern, winter dragon etc. so it is the trophy type rare fish that are not listed in book 5. There is a list of em in stratics and Uoguide. Book 5 has only the ones that you can make pies out of.

    My guess for the lantern fish would have been tokuno. As that is where you see all the little lanterns hanging as decoration in the town. (I think its called a red hanging lantern?- that type)

    I was told last night the Rainbow fish comes from Twisted Weald. Sadly the catcher had cut it up, so I was unable to beg a screenie.

    So that would make the Twisted Weald spawning 2 fish then... Rainbow and Unicorn. Nice!

    I begin to suspect that most places have 2 (or 1 and a crustacean), a modest skill one and a high skill one. Gravewater lake has Zombie fish and Holy Mackeral. I've been able to catch Holy Mackeral with my GM fisher since the booster went live, but I only caught the zombie fish on Test when the char had 120 skill.
    Here's the list of undiscovered - or at least 'unphotographed' fish.
    Abyssal Dragonfish
    Blood lobster
    Dread lobster
    Dungeon Pike
    Lantern Fish
    Rainbow Fish
    Seeker fish
    Tunnel Crab
    Void Crab
    void Lobster
    Winter Dragonfish
