Sea turtle from Pandaria pools?

Professions
Does anyone know if you can catch the sea turtle mount from Pandaria fishing pools?

The achievement still only mentions Cata and Northrend zones last I checked but I really hope we don't have to keep fishing in old zones once that stupid herring finally drops.
I'd like to know as well.
From El's Extreme Anglin' - World of Warcraft Fishing Guide
( http://www.elsanglin.com/mop_essentials.html )

Instead of one ultra-low odds rare catch (like the Sea Turtle), anglers can catch rare fish which slowly work towards a special reward.


I hope that she is misinformed because one of the biggest perks of fishing for me was that I might catch the turtle mount... :(
Turtle mount is in northrend only :P
Ok, I spoke to soon... El's Fishing site now says that it is reported that the mount might be caught from Pandaria pools...

Also, the turtle mount can be caught outside of Northrend. It can be caught from any pool in Northrend and Cataclysm-level pools.
I got my turtle mount from an Emperor salmon pool in pandaria, so I can confirm that they do indeed come from pandaria pools as well.

Woohoo! I got mine right before the patch hit, but good luck to everyone else!

The rare fish you get are quest items you turn into Pat Nagle for rep with him.
I can confirm this. A friend caught the sea turtle yesterday in pandaland.
Good to know! I was wondering the same thing. Thanks for the info!
I caught my turtle mount about a year ago, from fishing Guppy pools in Twilight Highlands. So. Many. Casts. >:(

I got mine my 21st cast into a cata pool, soon after starting the cata expansion.

This was after previous camping it in Northrend, in hundreds of pools. Lols!
I got my very first Sea Turtle from a Pandaria pool and actually submitted a suggestion to Blizz to have the tooltip for the Achiev changed.
I was just looking for a thread with this answer! I still haven't caught a turtle! Just gonna keep fishing away till I get one!
got mine a few hours ago
Yes finally from a pool in dread wastes, 12000+ fish caught:(
yay, someone else calls it pandaland :P
I have a friend that caught the turtle mount in Pandaria as well.
Currently going at these fish pretty hard. Been on and off trying to fish up a turtle for the last 3 years. Fishing up at least 300 fish a day, no luck.

When the thread is almost a year old, and has been noted several times within that yes, you can fish up the turtle in Pandaria, why would you feel the need to necro a long dead thread just to add something that has already been well proven....
Necroing is frowned upon. It's far better to make a new topic.

If it helps, I finally caught mine while fishing for Jewel Danio in the pools next to the Shrine. Loremaster Cho was likely smiling down upon me that day.
