Pondies

“Also called ‘Marooned Sailor’s Supper’, these little fishies are a staple of islanders diets”

 

 By FAR my favorite fish to catch, located on any island that has a pond (doesn’t connect to the ocean and has fish swimming in it). Best to fish from Mermaid’s Hideaway as the ponds there offer a great supply.

Note:
Moonsky Pondies can only be caught under the moon. (at night)

Wreckers

“A big, meaty fish that makes a hearty meal, but its face can easily ruin your appetite.”

These home wreckers are only found near the remains of your pirate brethren’s beloved boat. Guess those Sea Gulls were actually circling around to get a taste of the new inhabitants. 

Notes:
Blackcould Wreckers can only be caught at a shipwreck in a storm! (hope your boat doesn’t sink too)
Moon Wreckers are only out at night, they’re full of surprises.

“A meaty fish with a tang of sulphur, the Devilfish suits a hardy palette.”


While many don’t see the danger in fishing for these Devilfish, the name alone should tell you who you may meet when trying to catch these sea swimmers. The Devilfish love to eat grubs, just make sure you warm them up in the water first.

Sea of Thieves Fishing

“This rather serene-looking fish seems to have accepted its fate as a pirate’s dinner.”


The Ancientscale fish is native only to the Ancient Isles. While being lovers of Leaches, these fish may really just want to get a taste of Pirate, before the Pirate gets a taste of them.
