I skilled on these and the other catch, giant catfish, at the first pond in davoi using halcy rod and either minnow or sinking minnow (don't recall which). Raised lvl from 26-29 rapidly, coulda went to 31 (catfish cap) or 33 (bass cap) i'm sure.

Fishing in Bastok Markets, halcyon rod and minnow. Catching them pretty easy. I was surprised to get a skillup on a catch--a .2 up, skill 11.

I catch these pretty often in La theine. (16- 21+) I use a frog lure so I catch red terrapin too (which also lvls my skill ^^)

you can also catch these in Bastok Markets using a Carbon Rod and insect paste. You'll catch lots of moat carps too, so that's a plus.

you can catch these and giant catfish with a comp rod and worm lure (good for skill) in the jugner lake.

if you use a frog lure you can snag red terrapins sometimes.

(same as LT.. but there are less people fishing for them in jugner i think)
