Fish Out Of Water

Fish Out Of Water

Feb 20, 2015

On February 21st, from 12:00am to 11:59 pm Central US Time, Wizard101 is hosting the first ever FISHING TOURNAMENT!

There are plenty of ways to win prizes. There are three categories in which the winner will earn 60,000 Crowns! Those categories are

  1. Largest fish
  2. Shortest fish
  3. Most epic fish

In addition to these 3 main prizes, there are additional prizes of 10,000 Crowns each for

  1. The most Dekoi-type fish caught
  2. The smallest Jellyfish-type fish
  3. The smallest Eel-type fish (Krokotopian Eel, Dragon Eel)
  4. The largest Codfather
  5. The largest Todd Pole

You can find the locations of all these fish, as well as tips for how to catch many of them, in our Gone Fishin’ guide!


Additionally, we’re using this opportunity to gather some fish information… and if you help, we’ve got some prizes for you as well!

For our fishing, we would like to add information on the sizes at which each fish is considered a small fry, keeper, and whopper. We are looking for this information on all fish EXCEPT DEKOI AND CUDA TYPES. What we are asking is that you fish like crazy for the fishing tournament, and at the end of the day, report back with the following information on any types of fish (except dekoi and cuda types) that you feel would be useful:

  1. The largest small fry
  2. The smallest keeper
  3. The largest keeper
  4. The smallest whopper

If you do not have each of those pieces information (ie if you only have a whopper and a small fry), please feel free to comment with whatever information you DO have, but make clear exactly which info you are giving.

Our hope is the by having many people contribute this information, we can find out at exactly which point each fish will be considered a small fry or whopper. We ask that you wait until the end of the day and then contribute all of your information in one reply to this post, even if you are submitting information for several different types of fish.  Please be as accurate as possible.  Everyone who contributes information will entered into a drawing for a chance to win a code for one of 20 FOG staffs! The codes will be sent to the email address with which your comment is registered. We will be accepting  contributions until midnight Central time on Monday, February 23.  We will approve comments and select our winners within a day after the close of the contest.


We look forward to gathering information from you to help the community, and good luck in the fishing tournament!

    yea, the tattoo fish must be the longest one, found in Mirohalm Keep
    The Sumo Koi is kinda big one, in the Kishibie Village
    The Fish Sandwich must the smallest, I think…found in Cyclops Lane
    I think the Musushi must b the epic one, I recently caught it..well everyone can give it a try (found in Crimson Fields).

  • Devin Frosthammer

    I am pretty sure the tattoo fish is the biggest
    and the sumo koi is pretty big too tattoo is found
    somewhere in grizzleheim and the koi is found in mooshu
    the smallest fish is found in cyclops lane its called the fish sandwich
    i know the musushi fish is an epic, its found in crimson fields

  • Shadowblade

    Here we have a Blackberry Jellyfish. This one shows how big/small it can get within the regular sized range. The 45.0, most notable gives an idea of the “Regular’ size range.

    • mercs101

      Excellent, thank you!

  • Brandon OwlSword

    Some stuff I got:
    A whopper Sun Ray (48.0)
    A small fry Bone Fish (8.0)
    A small fry Origami Fish (7.2)
    I got a lot of other stuff but didn’t document it too well obviously. 😛 Didn’t want to give any false information so that’s all I got for now, might find some more later in the day. :) Thanks for the contest!!

    • mercs101

      Fantastic, the information on the whopper Sun Ray was especially helpful! Thanks for posting!

      • ValdusWildheart

        I got a 48.0 sun ray yesterday and it is NOT a whopper.
