[Fishing] Strannggeee Lava Fishing...

    Skill: 94 Fishing
    Activity: Lava Fishing

    So I'm fishing up the lava rocks and goodies from the lava tiles as you enter the city. I put a trusty ole' lava hook on my fishing pole.

    I found it very odd that during this break from the grind to find some treasure that I landed TWO Autumn Dragonfish from the lava. One was 29 stones and the other was 125 stones.

    I had no idea that these fish resided in lava tiles and/or that 94 fishing could even possibly land them.

    Bug?

    Likely a bug.

    However, you can pull Autumn Dragonfish with skill less than 94 as per the following table found elsewhere in Stratics:

    Fishing in the High Seas

    I'd be interested to see what other little "gems" like this that are out there...

    Autumn dragonfish are found by fishing in Ilsh. Doesn't seem to matter whether it's lava or water, as long as you're on that facet.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the fishing skill column in "fishing in the high seas" is the skill the person had who first reported success catching the fish. I don't think anyone has nailed the minimum skill necessary for any special or rare fish.

    You are correct, that's why there's a * by the entries and a matching foot note:
