27 minutes(until my fishing pole broke) starting at 115 fishing in Jaggedpine, I caught 13 Thunder Salmon.

Came back with new fishing poles and it started storming, only lasted 12 minutes. I only caught 4 Thunder Salmon during suggesting no change in catch rate, but it is a very tiny sample size.

3 hours and 30 minutes of fishing(start at skill 120, ending at 138) in Jaggedpines yielded 90 Thunder Salmon.

I am on TLP server Aradune. I used 400 bait in East Karana. I noticed something, I only caught 1 Thunder Salmon in 288 bait, for 112 bait during a storm, I caught 11. Not a very good sample, but maybe it has to be a rain storm to catch alot of these?

Interesting. I do know fish tend to come out and bite during rain storms because water insects tend to come out and fly across the water. Maybe there is a modifier there during rain.

After 3 days and 300-350 pieces of bait used in Nektulos Forest without a single Thunder Salmon caught, I bought more bait, and went to Jaggedpine Forest. In 30 min, I had 6 Thunder Salmon.

When to Nektulos Forest to fish for Thunder Salmonm on two different days. Started with zero fishing skill - my current skill without modifiers is 199 and still haven't caught a Thunder Salmon. So, either something is broken or changed. Soon as I'm out of bait I'm moving on to try another zone for Greengil or Evergreen fish.

Drop rate in Jaggedpine Forest seems way better than Nektulos Forest.

For a more recent update.........

I fished in West Karana for about 45 minutes brining my skill from 1 to 20 and in that time got a stack of fish scales, 8 fresh fish and 4 thunder salmon. A ton of failures and a bunch of daggers and sandals as well.

All in all not bad
No Salmon!!!!!

My skill is 200 plus 5% mods using Fishermans Companion pole and Catch-a-lot baits. I used 2 stacks of bait in each zone, EK, NK, WK, JP, Nedaria. 100 baits and not a single salmon. I used to catch them about 50% of the time.
WHATS UP???
I need Thunder Salmon for Surefall Rangers Trail Juice. Whered they go? :(

That's not good. Looks like the imbeciles have been ******* with the loot tables again so that now a relatively common item is hard to obtain.
Thanks a lot developers.
Any more brilliant ideas?
Why not put Thunder Salmon on some Tunare faction so that we take a faction hit too?
/growl
This has got me so flippin riled up I'll have to hit the Karanas and see for myself how the fishing goes.
Last time I fished for salmon they sure weren't rare, caught more of those than fish scales that's for sure. My fishing skill is 200 not including mods.
I'm still recovering from the now fixed Racnar Hide drop that I believe required a CoV faction hit for half-elves.
I guess those developers hadn't heard of Wakening Lands or the Court of Tunare... yeah fixed now, but still.
/snarl...

Thunder Salmons are back up. Had no problems catching them today in West Karana.
must be tweaked
# Feb 05 2005 at 8:09 PM Rating: Default
They mustve tweaked this cuz ive been fishing in EK now for 2 hours, used about 60 catch-a-lots, and have got 0!! grr. I used to catch them all the time. Maybe the salmon have an anual run like irl and im early, lol. Anyone else tried catching these lately?

60 baits in 2 hours indicates a low fishing skill, correct?
At 200+ skill I can easily go through over 100 baits in less than 30 minutes.
Perhaps that's why the lack of Thunder Salmon catches?
I did not catch any until my skill was well over 100 (possibly 150) if I correctly remember.

I am catching these in Jaggedpine near the poachers camp. Catch about 50/50 thunder salmon and fresh fish. And my skill is way low.

I think the bait makes the difference. I catch these in Western Karanas all up and down the southern coast, but especially well by the Barbarian village. Better luck catching them using the village merchant's Catch'-A-Lot bait.


Ya shoulda seen the one that got away!
