    I had heard the trophy fish could only be caught at gm fishing and above. This morning on my first cast I caught this one. Bug? or was I misinformed?
     
  2. I want to venture a guess that some of the more common "big fish" will prob be catchable at 80 now maybe? Because some are GM, some are prob 105-110, and some 120.

    Likely not a bug, just some tweak to the qualifications for big fish now under the new booster.
     
  3. i'm going to speculate and say that this isn't an actually 'trophy' fish. it's does create fish pies, but you cannot use a taxidermy kit on it. i have about 200 fish steaks of a great baracuda. also I was picking up MIBS off the docks at 80 yesterday, so i think around 80% we see an increase in loot.

    Had not tried a tax kit on it yet, did not know that. Had also pulled up a white pearl and thought they were 85 at one time. *shrugs* obviously all new to me.

    Thanks for the replies.
     
  5. Just to clarify...people who are getting MIBs at the docks, this is still via serp spawn correct?

    I have pulled up many mib's (both at dock and sea) and never even see a serp spawn along with it.
     
  7. So MIBs are literally spawning just as pure loot from a cast? Without having to kill/loot it off a serp?

    This is a new change then to the old mib spawn system.

    I am only getting mibs together with serpents. I am now at 103 fishing. Not shure of which servers you are talking.
     
  9. i got one on my fisher with 81 skill that spawned directly in his backpack while fishing near haven pier on atlantic. i am still receiving them through normal serpents as well.
