Babubu no longer carries this!

More than likely this is because it was the guild item of the day. The guild doesn't sell the item when it can be turned in for guild points.

No, none of the merchants carry this anymore. And I checked ffrecipe.com and it wasn't a GP item.
I think you've been smoking the Moko...

I was only able to pull up eels from the east side of West Saratuba. The west side appears to be able to pull up all 3 of these fish.

Gold Lobster = 576 Guild Points.

Maximum per day = 3920 Guild Points.

Turn in 7 Gold Lobsters to gain the maximum.

I was fishing for these for skill-ups in the Sea in Gustaberg using a Sinking Minnow and Comp rod. I also caught these in the Sea in Sarutabaruta.

I should note that the fishing cap for these is 46. The fishing guild advised me to use sliced sardines. So you'll probably get a better bite rate using sardines, but they are also pricey. I don't think they are worth it.

Edit for grammar.

with the prices it usually goes for, this is probably best sold to the guild.

Use the send a correction button to have an I tem corrected. Admins of this site does not read all item every day.

Each time I used send a correction, it was corrected on the next day.

(might not be this time since they are at E3, lucky bastards!!!)

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

I thought of it first:

Gold lobster stacks very neatly to piles of 12.
