Finally got one!! Try targeting small fish. I have no clue how I got it all I know is it was a small fish in Cyclops lane, specifically the river nearest to the entrance. I hope this helps because I know I needed it.
I don't understand why KI makes this such a difficult fish to catch...it's part of the quest chain that introduces players to fishing. In that context, the low success rate discourages players from fishing altogether.
I have spent HOURS trying to catch the Fish Sandwich since Fishing went live...with plenty of Fishing Luck elixirs, too. Tonight I caught at least twenty fish during the hour I had my elixir (maybe more, I lost count) but not the Fish Sandwich.
That's right, more than a year after Fishing went live I still haven't finished that low-level quest. I was so looking forward to having it in the game, but frankly it's a big disappointment.
It looks like KingsIsle has fixed the problem with the Fish Sandwich. There are now many more Myth fish in the streams of Cyclops Lane. After taking a month's break from trying to complete this quest, I came back and was able to catch it on the 3rd go.
My friend even said she was finally able to catch one. So, it looks like they've increased their likelihood to appear.
Yeah, it is hard to catch. If you have heard of it, Duelist101 said some time ago (6 months or more) that the fish sandwich flaws were fixed. Um, no, it isn't. I've only caught it on my side-fishing character, not my character that does fishing all the time. It is not just you, trust me I really want this fish to put in an aquarium in my castle's kitchen Another story: Once I was trying so hard to catch it and I winnowed all except myth fish, and there was ONE fish left in the pond (it was just a cuddlefish). It is crazy lol
Good luck. Tell me when the flaws are over ~ Allison Dragongem 80
When I first went for the fish sandwich I didn't see any myth in the pond although later I realized that I just a didn't know what the myth glow/hint thing was. It looks kinda like life but instead of leaves around it, there's these yellow sparkles. They're a bit hard to recognize but once I knew which one was myth, I fought it on my first try. I think it's the only myth fish in the pond but il not sure there might be mythacudas.
I read through this anticipating to be angered, but I got the catfish on my first try, using no elixirs.
I think the trick is as someone stated, to reveal the fish, find the myth, look for small and just go to another realm. I switched to another realm after I found no myth fish at all, then the only one was a tiny lil guy, and i reeled it in, and honestly my jaw was dropped at how easy it was, since I was looking to be disappointed! Good luck wizards
