Right spot is the key in WoF. If you know where you can find your fish, you can save time & fuel. The following guide is not only for finding the specific fish but also provide some info about the G' Grade of the fish you' ll catch in that spot. Grade system in this game is a way to order how worthy every fish is for its own kind. Grades are about: 1' - 10' and you will get more xp and better selling price as the grade of the fish is higher. Keep in mind as higher the grade is, much bigger the fish become and it will give you a tougher fight.
I wanted to make this guide simple and "realistic" by share my prommising spots that they gave me/ give me good times and helped me level up better. Also it's about personal spot & fish desires since as you see all those spots are not defently the best around but in my eyes considered worthy and suitable to shared with the players.
SOME INFO & ADVICES
Explanation about spot's grade range value:
Simple i ranked the spot's grade value in to four rankings: Low, Medium, high, top. The call for a spot named low or high graded it's a desition after testing this spot and make my general conclusions since i kept in mind and gathered many factors before. Since the grade ranging is about 1-10 i chose that a low grade spot can be the spot that can provide a grade ranging about 1-4, a mid grade spot about 4-7 and a high grade spot about 7-10 G'. However, because the grade range has large variation most times you' ll see to call a spot: "Low to Mid" or "Mid to High" etc. Again, the general desition for spot's grade value it's not only from the grade ranging just on one species but also depends from the total grade value that all the species in that spot can offer aditionally. Finnaly i call "top" grade spot, simple the high spot that can also provide the higher grade ranging and especially high grade ranging on the most of the species in that spot.
I chose to gave the map coordinates for the spots not extremely perfeclty. First because i liked to stay simple - used only the two game map's axis and secondly (IMO) cause if the player needs to search a bit for all those spots, maybe he/she can find some other spots from himself and enjoy the game better.
Grade hunting map:
Prommising grade spots usually can be found in some distinctly points on the map. In most casses those points displayed on the map as deeper places of the sea like deep holes or deeper seabeds. You can find lot of them near shorelines - usually far from the starting shores - and some others even in open sea or close to the far edges/ corners of the map. I can say 70% of the most prommising grade spots can be found much far from the starting points and have just small scale sizes.
About Albino/ Rare/ Emblematic fishes:
Sometimes you will see notices about albino, rare or emblematic fishes in a spot. For eg: like Albino Black seabream or just the unlisted emblematic Lion fish. You must keep in mind that all those notices is just from my personal experiance since i caught those special fishes in those speciffic spots with better luck compared with other places. However for these fishes nothing can be guaranteed since are special species mostly tend to hit special baits with more chances and usually they can be caught (easy or not) almost in any place of the map.
Bait selection affects the % of a better graded fish to strike:
First of all we must keep in mind that every fish has some tend not only to hit some baits better than others, but also which bait may it' ll hit from its appetiate list varies extremely cause of the other fishes same bait preferences that share the spot. Fish info tab can't shows the truth perfeclty because the % goes crazy every time that more of one of different kind of fish have the same bait as prime bait and their availability are just the same. Here begin a complicated story about fish's strike % but if you care about the grade, this can also be useful. So, with that sense above, if more of one species have the same baits in their lists, then defently each of them will has some tend to strike a different one of those listed baits. This way is based which bait is higher or lower to the list for that fish and that related with the "higher" bait & fish's grade. For a example a small spotted sea Bass = 1-2 G' can hit anchovies but not horse mack, however when you' ll meet it at 5' G it can hit macks along with the anchovies. So in the spot that the bass has G' ranging: 1-5 G' (able to hit the macks) if you switch between the anchovies & the macks you will see something very interesting. If you catch the fish by using the macks you have most chances to get it in better grade than if you caught it with the anchovies - if you caught it with anchovies the luck to got it at higher/max graded that the spot can offer it would be less. This is make sense since the macks are better/ more expensive/ higher bait than anchovies. So, it's always good to use the highest bait from those listed baits for your specific fish if you want the best % to get it as much high graded - as much higher the spot can provide it. However in some casses this is not the wiser thing to do or even you can't do it well cause other species tend to hunt that bait most. So, in such situations you better try to choose some lower bait - a bait that may not attract the wrong biter but still can attract your target fish hopfully still in high grade or gives you some good chances at least. You can do the same too in other casses, like when you have a so big high graded fish that you can't control but however you want to catch that species at least in a good grade.
Fighting a high - graded fish:
Fight with 10' G' trophy monster is much different than you have a baby 1-3 G' fish on your line. As the grade goes higher on a fish, its unique fighting behavior characteristics reach the max limits and give you harder times. A higher graded fish in general it'll run faster, makes more leaps trying to prevent an easy hold and most of all it'll try harder to run away and snap your line. Always is a tough business and require your own skill to do it successfully. Hunt those line tensions by moving "inch to inch" and when it's change direction perfome a hold, then swing it twice or more to stun it and from there go for the full damage reel in by playing sensitive with the tension limits. After that, perfome a hold again, usually it'll change its direction after the stun but even if it wont or leap, try to gain ground by moving toward - while you doing this your stamina replenished so when you are ready again repeat the whole pattern.
About Lucky Market's Baits:
All we know that all these baits from the Lucky Market can give you better chances than the regular baits to catch specific species or high graded fishes. Once more i considered that was better to stay simple and not focus on those special baits since not everyone can afford their prices and for the general player the common baits are the all - around baits for most any of his "every day" needs. However in some spots and situations you will see me to mention them for specific purposes.
I thought it's more fair & right to share just two or three spots per map cause not everyone can get more of these three since he must pay pearls for the rest of the other seven of them.
I know maybe all this is not so interesting & helpfull since dont provide any help for quests etc but i thinκ still has its purpose for those who like to target fishes or looking for better spots for better xp
Have a nice trip today
