Hello, Wizards! We've made it through another week, and now it's time for another Feedback Friday. Woohoo!

On Wednesday, we brought magical fishing to The Spiral. This week, I'd like to ask - have you caught a fish yet? If you have - what's the coolest fish you've caught?

I've found my way to a few ponds this week, and my favorite fish has been a Treant Fish (small fry). How about you?

I hope you have a fantastic Friday, and enjoy your weekend!

If I had to choose...... probably the boss fish. He doesn't look like a fish, he's like a piggy :)

First off I would like to say I love the fishing. I really didn't think I would. I now tell people my life wizard is retired and spending her days fishing.

I would have to say the coolest fish I have caught was a grape jellyfish from the Tree of Life. I also caught an archer fish in Ravenwood.

my favorite fish is Ninja Fish, Samurai Fish, and Chest (pun attended) however I dislike how I need a whole bunch of treantfish to make a tank and I dont have Crowns it would better if their was a Crowns option or take fish off the crafting. Until then I can't display my fish! (btw chests barely ever drop tanks and when they do its a tank i dont even need!)

I love my Doodle Fish and My Doddle Fishette! I can't wait to craft their new homes!

I think you guys have done an amazing job with the fishing! And I love the names and discovering new fish. (some of them are a real hoot, the Sturgeon General or the Boss Hog are some of my favorites right now)

My only feedback/complaint: (and it is really minor):

I would like to see a few more feminine looking fish or "pretty fish." Most of the known fish tend to look like they are masculine characters. I'd like to see some more girly looking ones too please. I can imagine: Angel Fish, Rainbow Trout, or Pisces (like a celestial constellation type fish). Just off the top of my head.

Looking forward to more updates and new discoveries!

hmm would have to be the samurai fish or would it be the ninja absolutely loving the fishing but maybe sell standard tanks as an alone thing as I am sure everyone is finding that most fish they are catching need the regular keeper tanks what are peoples thoughts on that it would be great to get some for gold as I am sure everyone would agree

i really don't care for fishing, since it's a time/energy leech and staring at the screen hurts my eyes. but i did catch a cuddlefish once... those things are terrifying, lol.

I love the fishing! This is the most fun I have had in the spiral for such a long time!

I haven't caught any really rare fish yet -- but I have enjoyed both the activity and the humor in the fish descriptions. Troll fish, garfish, sharkespeare, fish sandwich -- most everything except for the school-a-cudas of various forms have been fun to get.

but just like fishing in real life, this is a fun, relaxing activity. Wish it did not eat up so much energy, so I could do it longer!

I haven't caught anything too exotic yet, but I hope to. Fishing is a fun update and a brilliant bit of programming. Very well done!

My goal is to collect at least one of every fish, and display the most unusual ones. Some of them are very funny (and pun-y) that's for sure :D

I have to admit, I was, like, "Uh huh, fishing, riiiight." But I am (pardon the pun) totally HOOKED. I love it!! None of my characters have caught any really unusual fish yet, but it's so much fun, who cares?

I haven't caught a lot of different types of fish yet, but I'll have to say either the Mechanical Armorhead or the Bone Fish.

Fishing is fun & funny. Thanks for adding it! So far the Bear Acuda and Grape Jelly fish are the best I've caught.
