Only mithra being able to eat raw fish is not totaly true. Mithra are the only race that can eat raw fish without the aid or items.

The other day we killed a nm in sea serpents grotto that dropped a set of h2h weapons that enable any one to eat fish raw. Cant remember the nm or the name of the weapon but will add it when my mnk friend is on.

Thank you! You're basically the only one to post some valuable information here!!! Muchas Gracias!

On another note... Do you know the chance of an 11 fisher catching this fish? I'm working on my cooking.

Hmm, jez caught 1 in West Sarutabaruta with Halcyon and Minnow at lvl 20... I was kind of suprised. It, along with the blutail which I was actually targeting, are rather tough to pull in... but considering its what... 66 lvls above me... not as hard as you'd think. It's a small fish as it only had "!", and I think I had a "Bad feeling about this one." Might be possible at 11 but very hard.
i will buy this.

I believe this is a large fish. it caps at ~55 and you can catch them in port windy with a hume/composite fishing rod and a minnow. Or you can fish off the cliff in west sarutabaruta with the same rod and bait and catch them along with bluetail.

Big or Small?

Is this still considered a large fish?

I had one break my Mithran Rod in West Sarutabaruta yesterday, but I didn't have the "!!!" and violent vibration that usually comes when you hook a large fish.
# Mar 17 2005 at 4:34 PM Rating: Decent

How to catch?
# Mar 11 2005 at 11:26 AM Rating: Decent
Has anybody figured out the best place and rod and bait or lure to catch these?
RE: How to catch?
# Mar 20 2005 at 4:45 PM Rating: Default
try mhaura docks and use composite rod + luworm
# Mar 01 2005 at 1:36 AM Rating: Decent
Only mithra can eat fish raw galkas eat meat raw and all the other races need it cooked dressed and spiced on a plate^^.

BTW: Yes everyone sells it to the vendor cuz even if you sell it to an npc its still good money.

# Sep 28 2004 at 7:54 AM Rating: Decent
Mithra eat raw fish (Bastore Bream, etc.)
Galkans eat raw meat (Hare Meat, etc. )
All other races eat everything else.
That doesn't mean that the first two can't eat Grapes.

what are some good baits or lures for these?
# May 12 2004 at 8:00 PM Rating: Decent
I can't seem to sell this to the vendor. Anyone know why? Could it be lack of fame or me not being Windurstian? Thanks~

Ive found that generally means too many people have already sold to vendor. Kind of like you can only buy so many Items until Vendor runs out.
This is my best guess anyways, happened to me at Fishing guild, and I was able to turn them in next game day and sell em.

mithra are ~KITTIES~ Cats eat raw fish. NA ppl should have seen Tom&jerry cartoon. Galka are big MONKEYS/GORRILLA like thing... Thell eqat anything almost. Use a little common sense. KITTY eats fish. MONSTER LIKE APEISH MAJIG eats raw meat.

# Mar 15 2004 at 3:19 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, the auction history shows almost no sales for this fish. Does everyone sell this back to the vendor?

I don't understand. It says that the Bastore Bream will give you +4 Dex and -6 Mind; however you can't even use them. When ever I attempt to it tells me that I am are unable to eat it. Furthermore the only recipe that this fish is used in has an effect of -1 Dex.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 17 2004 at 11:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Only Tarutaru can eat raw fish...so if you're not Taru, it can't help you.
