Fishing is boring. Very, very boring. It isn’t so painful if you’re using it to level your cooking at the same time, but it still hurts. However, there is a payoff in that you can take advantage of people’s loathing for the profession and make some sweet, sweet gold. Make those folks pay for all the time you’ve wasted while you cast your line into the water over, and over, and over, and over, and over…
There are three fish in Cataclysm that I’ve found to sell very well:
Fathom Eel: These are fished up in pools commonly found along the coastal shoreline in Uldum. They are also found in Tol Barad, along the north section where the fishermen are located. If you are familiar with the zone, you know where I’m talking about. They’re used in two beneficial recipes: Skewered Eel (Agi/Sta), and a component for Seafood Magnifique Feast – a raid/party buff food that provides 90 Sta & 90 in a Beneficial Stat. Wild card food!
Algaefin Rockfish: Found along the shore of Twilight Highland, these fish are used to whip up Baked Rockfish (Crit/Sta)
Deepsea Sagefish: There’s two reasons why this fish is so valuable. The first is that it isn’t fished from pools. This fish you have to get in open water (Twilight Highlands & Uldum are your best bets). The second reason is that this fish is used in two recipes that are invaluable to casters: Delicious Sagefish Tail (Spirit/Sta), and Severed Sagefish Head (Int/Sta).
