The sun is shining, the temperatures are rising, and my smile is bright, so it must be Friday!

This week, let's talk about fishing, and the future. What sort of fish would you like to see and catch? What would it look like? Where would it be caught? We've dolphinately had a reel lot of fun with fishy puns around here, and now it's your turn!

I'm aware that there have been posts here and there about this subject - I just wanted to take this oppor-tuna-ty to continue the discussion - maybe we can look at things from a different angler.

Ok, I promise I'm done now! ::grin:: Have a wonderful weekend, Wizards!

Zafaria fishing is a must have. There is so many great water spots to fish in that world, Baobab, marketplace, stone town, drum jungle, even the elephant graveyard. Plus it would be great to have a bunch of puns, Zebra Fish, Lion Fish, Sea-Lion, Elephant Seal, Sea Monkey, etc. I think just African animal themed fish would just be cool, plus they could be much bigger and perhaps fill up some of those Large sized tanks that not many fish can fit inside.

Something sure seems fishy but its sure not these fish. I'd Love to see a Fish Stick fish those sometimes nasty or tasty treats I'd love to get a Fin err... I mean Hand on one, and a peanut Butter Jellyfish Much like like the Strawberry, grape, blackberry and marmalade Jelly fish a Peanutbutter Jellyfish would Sure stick to your mouth, also I want to see a Koi just like the mount (i've got nothing...) , Tuna Fish I've been in Marleybone lately and found a can of tuna so why not a Tuna can body with eyes and fins attached to the can? This fish is not exactly the the oldest but its so fresh its right from the can! while we have the Cat Fishes why not a Dog Fish after all it rains cats and dogs a Dog fish would so be a "Mans best Friend" Just need to remember not to place them in the same place Dogfish like chasing cats! We've fought the Kraken we even keep them as pet's Why not fish for one to keep in a tank that be shocking. If we could Fish in DragonSpyre what would be more suitible then fishing in the lava for Lava Squids, or Dragonfish.

I'd like to see a Salmon-the-box! It could be a salmon on a spring coming out of a jack-in-box, box lol. It could be caught in Crab Alley. It could be a rare fish that you can interact with! Hope you like my idea

Flying Fish, Batacuda & Sky Gar from the Pirate101 universe as well. Why? Because why not?

Flying Fish, Batacuda and Sky Gar from the Pirate101 universe. The Flying fish would look just like a dark blue/black fish with big, wide flippers that double as wings. The Batacuda would be a grey Barracuda with long, thin bat-like wing-like flippers as well. The Sky Gar would just be a green recoloring of the Batacuda as well.

As for where they would be caught at, the Flying Fish would be caught on Triton Avenue, the Batacuda would be caught in Shoshun Village and then finally the Sky Gar would be caught in The Jade Palace near the Garden Dojo as well.

A big issue with the future of fishing I think is the limited nature of locations. There's no water in Marleybone or Dragonspyre, very little in most worlds really. Celestia and Avalon have a few above surface areas. Some more areas need to opened up to fishing. There are many areas that the land is too high above the water that otherwise could be opened up for it. Underwater areas could be used too, same spells, but underwater instead of a lure it could be a speargun shot.

Well first off, hello Professer Falmea! Second, I don't know what it should be called but maybe a fish that looks like Ambrose, or fish that look like the professers, including you Falmea! That's all!

P.S. Your hair looks like a flame. Is it really on fire or did you use magic hair gel?
P.P.S. All fish mentioned above can be caught in Ravenwood!

Something that I think would work really good for fishing holes in Khrysalis is a fly fish. (fly fishing) It would of course be a cross between a fish and a housefly. Then you could make a pun on the pun with a butterfly fish.

Create some fire themed fish that would be exclusive to Dragonspyre? Lava fishing, it could be something.

I suggest making all fish that can be found in commons available in at least one other location. Commons is crowded enough without dragging in hordes of fishermen looking for exclusive fish that can't be caught anywhere else.

Deep Sky fishing: fish off a cliff into a cloudbank below. Silhouettes of fish swimming in the clouds. Could use this as an offshoot of deep sea fishing and the species found in the open sea.

Here are some of my ideas:
  • Finless Fish (Looks like a regular fish but with no fins)
  • ReTrouted (A fish dressed up as a crossing guard)
  • Holy Fish (A fish with a halo and with holes all over
  • Duck Fish (A mix between a duck and a fish)
  • Shadowacuda (It's a Shadow Magic version of the school acudas)
  • Papafisshy (A fish holding a camera)
  • Sacrifish (A fish holding a table and a knife. The table has a plant on it and the fish is going to sacrifice the plant)

Zafaria would be a great place to have fish.. Maybe you can catch a lion fish or something like that. And also Avalon would be a great place as well, and Celestia has a lot of water so, there should be fishing there as well.

I recommend bass fish. A few places like Zafaria and definitely Celestia are a must fish place. I do want to say I would highly recommend larger tanks that allow more than one fish in the tanks. I just built myself a regular tank and I was pretty disappointed with the results.

Personally, I think it would be cool if there was a mermaid fish that looks like the siren pet in Wizard101.
