Fish to catch: Murk Grouper (aka Devil of the Cygillan)
Fishing Spot: Vannath Coast (Galdin Quay)
Recommended Lure: Burrower: Abyss Worm
Your target will be identified by a large yellow dot if your skill level is at least level 10. Be sure to have the best gear for this quest (Llymlaen reel obtained from the Totomostro mini-game). This quest is all about patience and constantly changing your aiming direction to constantly keep up with the fish. It’s also advisable to reel in with brief yet controlled bursts, except when the fish changes direction. The best time to weaken the fish is right after it struggles for a few seconds (you controller will vibrate when this happens).
