How to Catch

I have caught nearly 2 stacks in an hour at fishing level 50 at Jugner Forest. I have caught more gold than moats, I also have a Lu Shangs Fishing Rod and full gear, so maybe I have more of an advantage.

The problem with not catching many, is low skill. to catch these comfortably I would recommened a skill of 45+

they are not that hard to catch. My advice would be to buy a mithran rod and a shrimp lure and fish in port Sandy or Windurst Waters or bastok market. This method will level you up, tricoloured carp from 15-27 and gold till 36 and as you catch tri coloured carp as well as gold carp and you will never lose bait. Doing this in Port Sandy I have caught lots of gold carp and my fishing skill is at 16

The best I did catching Goldies was 4 in an hour, new moon at the lake in Jugner, using a Carbon and Insect Paste.

I was also catching a mess of Moats and Tris as well as Dark Carp.

These are a rare bite, and as such are difficult to target. Jugner lake with insect paste is perhaps the zone I catch the most at. I have also heard that the rotunda in Windurst Woods is good for Gold Carp.

Again, they're a rare bite. The most I've ever gotten was 5 in a 4-hour fishing session.

Other than food for mithra, i don't think it's used for anything. Good money, though - i sold it to the NPC at the fishing guild for over 600 gil.
