Elder Scrolls Online – Fishing guide to Master Fisher – Master Angler

By on May 17, 2015 in ESO |

In this post you will find the list of fishes of the different zones, as well as maps indicating where to get them in these zones.
I did not try to map every single fishing hole on the map, but rather to provide at least a few fishing holes of each type of water on each map.

Update 2016: Zeni disabled OpenGL support, effectively removing Linux support.  Byebye ESO.

Update 2017: moved this page to Steemit

Update 2020: I got a windows laptop able to run the game… decided to do a little update with the “new” zones and moved the page back here : Steemit was a mistake.  

Map conventions and baits:

ESO_Fishing_Menu
As you probably know, the type of bait is critical for your rate of success while fishing.  Read the maps as follow for optimal results:
ESO_Fishing_Ocean It is an Ocean, use Worms or Chubs
ESO_Fishing_Lake It is a Lake, use Guts or Minnows
ESO_Fishing_River It is a River, use Insect Parts or Shads
ESO_Fishing_Foul It is Foul Water, use Crawlers or Fish Roe
ESO_Fishing_Unknown I didn’t throw a line here, plugin registered the hole, but I don’t know what it is: use your intuition!

A huge change came to the game between orginial post in 2015 and update: what used to be useless fish can now be filetted into Perfect Roe. You should do that, and either sell or cook the perfect roe, it is needed for most good food reciepes

Tools:

Credits deserved very much here, to the tools that made this tutorial possible:
Rare Fish Tracker, By Katkat42, which make it easy to track what you had/need in each zone.
Votan’s Fisherman, By Votan, which allowed the creation of the maps  (And his filetting addon that saved my mouse)

Zones:

The first three zones are islands, with only ocean, just walk around and you’ll find many more holes than on my maps!

Stros M’Kai Angler:

When I got this achievment, it was bugged and could only be obtained using Chubs.  It has supposedly been fixed, but you never know…

Fishing in Cyro was the worst part of this achievement, mostly because as a member of the Ebonheart Pact, most fishing holes where in enemy territory. As the map tries to show:
– Foul waters are in the middle, near imperial city (I got all fishes from the same one)
– Ocean waters are all south (only found 2 spots, just north of the gate of Mnem, in Aldmery Dominion territory)
– Rivers and Lakes are plentiful near Drakelowe keep.
