Wizard101: Fish School, Location, XP, and Tank Size Guide

Wizard101 Fishing, Fish School, Location, and Tank Size Guide

Wizard101 released a brand-new feature today in the Test Realm: fishing! With this new activity, you use fish spells to try and catch various kinds of fish in a number of different worlds - Wizard City, Krokotopia, Mooshu, and Grizzleheim.

You can do a few things with fish. You can sell them for a small amount of gold, display them in tanks that you buy or craft in your house, or use them for crafting teleport tapestries.

Wizard101 Fishing, Fish School, Location, and Tank Size Guide BadgesGetting fish can be tricky. Generally, you need to ignore the fish playing with the lure and instead wait until the orb drops completely below the surface, then quickly hit space bar to bring them up! Even if you time it perfectly, you can still lose them, though a Fish Luck Elixir will make things a lot easier on you. I recommend reading Duelist101's guide to it HERE.

Thoughts on Fishing

Besides the Owl-Eyed Pike and Fish Sandwich being ridiculously difficult to get, this seems like a great activity. I'm sure it will have some purposes we don't see yet in-game, and has lots of expansion potential.

I love that Wizard is starting to introduce a number of side activities at lower levels. It'll keep players entertained for long periods of time, and allows even high-level players to work toward something. I'm particularly fond of the new badges I've come by.

These are all obtained through various fishing activities (I compiled them on one page), and I suspect there are more to be found. The Journeyman Angler badge is one for reaching Fishing Rank 6. It will change with your rank, and I believe they go up to ten. I cannot figure out what Master Caster is for, however, I've obtained at least one of every single fish in this guide, so it may be for collecting all of the fish.


What's This Guide For?

You can catch any fish with any lure, but there are two benefits to knowing its class. Number one, you can use that class of lure and supposedly have a better chance of successfully catching the fish you're after. Number two, you can use your spell to reveal all fish schools to see if the fish you want even has a chance of being in that location.

I know I am missing some, so please help me out if you have others! The top left circle indicates a rare fish. The bottom left is the class. The bottom right shows which size fish tank you need for it. Special thanks for updated images to: Katie Roseblossom (2 fish), Jordan (1 fish), and Sophia Lifecaster (1 fish). Huge thanks to Alura Silverdust for providing the Silver Streak. Big thanks to Kelsey Fireheart for providing the Blackberry Jellyfish. Thanks to Sophia Lifecaster for 2 XP amounts.


Fish for Quests
Note: Recommended fishing locations are includes. These are where the fish are confirmed to be caught. However, you generally have a chance to catch a fish in any part of its world with the correct school spawn, and with several, they come from every world, but still have a recommended location. Experience listed in "First Catch, All Catches After" format.

Which lure do I use? Look at the school first, and then the rank. You should use that rank of that school lure to try and catch that fish.

  5. Does anyone know what type of fishes goes in the large whopper aquarium

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Large tanks are generally for "winged" fish. You also need to catch a very large type of "winged" fish that qualifies as a Whopper. It will have a "fat fish" symbol.

      Delete
    2. LOL It's Fish Not "Fishes"

      Delete
    3. Actually, "fishes" is correct. When you have one, it's a fish. When you have several of that fish, it's fish. But when you have multiple types or species of fish, then it's fishes. To me, that's one of those grammar rules that once you understand, you can break. I'd never use "fishes" myself, even though it's grammatically correct.

  6. It'd be nice if you could add a simple key and way to tell how rare those fish are. For example, you said the fish sandwich and owl-eyed pike are incredibly hard to catch- I suppose that could have some sort of red fish symbol of it then.

    1. Those are simply the ones that were very tough for ME to catch. Everyone has their own fish that are difficult. The little symbols in the top right are for rarity. Silver crowns are rare and gold crowns are epic.

    2. Yea i am having so much trouble catching the Krokotopian Eel

  7. Does anyone know if you can put more than one fish in an aquarium? Also, if KI reads this, I would like to be able to put sunken pirate ships, coral castles, and plants in the aquariums too.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Just one fish per aquarium. I suspect they'll add larger aquariums and more decorations in the future.

  10. I found a new fish named sturgeon general, Its school is myth and it is considered an epic fish. I have found this in Entrance Hall

    ReplyDelete
  11. So i drained my max char and my level 33 char trying to get the treant fish in unicorn way and had no luck. But i managed to get 2 owl-eyed pikes. This makes no sense to me and i just wanna craft the regular whopper aquarium. Is there any other way to get the treant fish or maybe buy one?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. you are looking at the wrong recipe the treant is for the standard aquarium not the whopper!

      Delete
  12. lots of fish everywhere

    ReplyDelete
  13. I caught Fish and Chips in Mirkholm Keep.

    ReplyDelete
  14. can you catch the cat fish anywhere other than the commons because I can only catch the firecuba and would the catfish be considered a rare fish?

    ReplyDelete
  15. would anyone considerer the sparkspeare and mechanical armorhead rare because I can't ever catch it.

    ReplyDelete
