Its important that you invest in a rod because the cheap ones will break time and time again and cost a lot. I use a tarutaru rod, decent enough, rarely breaks.

And no, a composite rod will say 'whatever was on the hook is too small to catch with this rod' if you try to catch small fish with it

Decent rod to get, it will pay for itself in no time at all.

I see a lot of you want to know the best way to catch moat carps. Composite rod is not good for thes because you will see a message time and time again "Whatever caught the rod was too small to catch with this rod". A hume rod though is very good. goes for about 6k on kujata. I like fishing in windy with hume rod and insect paste. Anywhere else you'll prolly catch mobs but in windy youll catch moats and gold carp which are good for some extra cash. Carbon is ok too but at a beginer skill has a chance to break. More a chance than the hume rod.

Hmmm... The new patch was just released, and it seems that this is now the best synthetic fishing rod designed to catch large fish. Before the patch, it wasn't worth fishing with much else besides Composite, Mithran, or Lu Shang's.

With the new patch, I wonder if it be more advantageous to use a rod like the Carbon Fishing Rod or Tarutaru Fishing Rod that isn't designed to catch large fish (such as Composite) while targetting small fish such as Moat Carp?

I was very surprised. /sigh

Hello Everyone I got a quick question and possible favor for all of you guys out there. What is the most fastest and less time consuming way to make some SERIOUS gil in camping and fishing.So far I understand Compsite Fishing Pole is the 2nd best Fishing Pole in this game so far but do you think I also get Rogue's Rig Lure as well in catching those big fish and items as well. Does your fishing lvl play a big part of it even though you have the best fishing pole and rig in the game?

Drop me a line my handle name is Ravenmoon. My character name is

first of all....its not all that easy to get "SERIOUS" gil fishing. u need to buy the pole, bait or rig. and sit and wait. and fishing lvl does count. if ur lvl 2 fishing u arnt gana catch too maney fish to get alot of gil. i sugest fishing to lvl....20ish? then do the lu shang quest. i did it then sold the rod :D. i knew i didnt like fishing i just wanted the rod!

well rate up if that helped alittle.

Typically, around 8k. But it's worth paying for because 2 stacks of moat carp will net you 8k and can eaisily be caught in 20 minutes to an hour of fishing, depending on bait, skill, luck, time and weather and whatnot...
for moat carp use insect balls

oops, composites, duh... I put the price for carbon... that's what you want to use to catch moat carp, you'll have much better odds. Composite rods are usually for bigger fish, although you can catch small fish with them at reduced rates. Composites go for anywhere from 10k to 15k usually...

The best rod for Ryuga

This is the best rod for pulling in Ryuga. I've caught him about 5 times. Lu'shang is good for other fish but I seem to have more successes pulling in ryuga as my composite seems to not break as often when going for him.

Moat Carp
# Feb 28 2004 at 5:31 PM Rating: Default
Yes it can catch moat carp, however most of the time "the fish was too small to catch." But on the bright side it's very unlikely that you'll break the rod on them. Plus it's great at getting items.
Yes

from what ive' heard and experienced, composite can catch moats but only 75% of the time.

carps are small fish. and when u fish for carps with composite, you get a messege saying you lost your catch, whatever you;re trying to catch is too small for this rod. thats the 25% you wont get it. supposedly single hook is best but people go with mithran more.

Can a composite rod catch moat carp as well as big fish?
