Sliced Sardine + Halcyon Rod = First cast, fat greedie for me.

1 greedie
1 Zamflug bass
3 Greedie (and a .1 skill up)
1 Rusty bucket

By this time I was getting pissy so I went to npc bought a stack of lugworms and went back to fishing useing Halcyon rod and Lugworms.(numbers are cast in a row)


1 Nothing
1 Greedie
1 Bastore sardines
2 Nothing
1 Rusty bucket

Ok, so im waiting for a pt in Selbina, and start fishing for the hell of it.... Just using Tarutaru fishing rod and Lugworms, and i catch this thing. I ask a fisher near me what it is, and they tell me it's for a quest, and that they're looking for it to. A while later, i catch another (obviously having to let it go) and the guy next to me is getting more and more annoyed, so i ask if they wanna trade rods. We do a swap, they catch a Fat Greedie on the first try XD So it's official, crapness is the key to catching this fish :P And Deathangel, you owe me one!

Halcyon Rod
Lugworms
Far SW corner in Selbina (near the subjob NPC)

I used a Tarutaru fishing rod. Paid 100 gil to sit on the pier. Used a minnow for bait. (It was nighttime, if you feel that makes a difference) First cast, Fat Greedie. Fishing skill level 1. :D

fished lvl 6 in Selbina and caught him twice, but it automatically released the second one. And I don't have the quest yet. WOOT..

I got the Fat Greedie in one shot with Fishing skill 9.1, 2 pieces of Fishing gear, at dusk on lightsday on the pier to the boat to Mhaura. Obviously, it's of benefit to simply pay the 100 gil to get to the pier, fish, and then leave. Not sure the reward is worth it, but it's your best bet to complete the quest.

I took someones advice from here and paid a ticket for the boat and fished off the pier. Got the Fat Greedie in 5 tries.

Before that, I fished in Selbina forever and didn't get it. So I think being at the pier helps. Especially since in part of the quest they say he lost it by the pier
Arrrgh!

Was fishing in Selbina. Skill @ 14.
Caught one... "You caught a fat greedie, however your inventory is full. Regretfully you release the fat greedie again."

/cry

Am I screwed? Will I ever catch that again?

I read through these posts, and someone said that near the Subjob guy was where they caught it. Used Minnow Lure with Comp Rod. After 3 hours (real time) of fishing, got lots of Greedies, but no Fat ones. Decided to try right off the dock, paid for my ticket to the boat, and sure enough...FIRST CAST: Greedie. SECOND CAST: Nothing. THIRD CAST: Fat Greedie. Just letting everyone know it is easy to catch him when you know where to go.

I have heard if you fish off the pier it can make a difference but I think the day has a big influence too. I caught mine with a fishing skill of level 2, a taru rod, a minnow lure, and it was on Lightening Day at night. I don't remember the moon phase but I was not on the pier.
