Fishing for Sugar Minnows

I cannot fish these out of anywhere I've tried in the Jade Forest. My fishing level is 549, and I use a +100 lure. I leveled from 525 to 549 trying to catch 10 of these things for a quest, and I haven't been successful at all. Zero catches. I've tried schools, no schools, different locations, and spoke with someone who was catching them, so I know it's possible, but what am I doing wrong?

First of all, make sure you're on the quest and not in a raid group.

Second of all, you only get them on a successful catch, ie: not driftwood or other grey vendor junk like that. If your fishing level is holding you back then be sure you fish only from schools, as they always have a 100% chance at a successful catch.

You have to be on the quest. As you are level 87, I am guessing that is the problem.

Can you get those dailies before 90? And why would he need them if not?

You can't. Sugar Minnows are only part of that one daily.

I thought so, but I was of course focused on leveling, so I thought maybe I missed something.

And if you have certain chats disabled, look in your backpack to make sure you don't already have 10 of them.

This is the first time I've read that you need to be on the quest to actually catch these. If true, it does explain the problem. And no, they're not sitting in my bags, because then the quest would be complete. I haven't tried fishing with the DK who actually picked up the quest, as I assumed his level zero fishing skill might cause some problems. I will see if it's possible for the DK to catch some of these, and report back. Thanks for the tips.

If you catch junk, you don't get the minnow. It's 100% only if you catch another fish. So not actually 100% ;)

I'm just curious as to why you were trying to fish them up in the first place. That is, what made you go "I need to fish up Sugar Minnows?"

If you weren't on the quest for them and aren't at a level to have a use for them, I'm just wondering what led you to wanting to fish for them in the first place.

The waters right beside the quest giver should be fine. You'll get the carp for the cooking quest too.

The quest is a daily for the cloud serpent people at the Arboretum, and I picked it up like every other daily I see. The quest giver says something about "you know how to fish?" or something like that, and since I have only one toon who bothers to fish, I switched toons, and started trying to catch them.

BTW, I trained the DK for fishing, flew to Jade Forest, and as long as the lure hits a school of fish, the minnows popped up 100 %. I didn't even bother with a lure or pole, just cast it out there with the stick that pops up.

Well yes, pools are 100% no matter if you have 1 or 600 fishing skill.

I'd prefer to fish in the open salt/freshwater... because of the Nat Pagle dailies...
