Black Desert Online Fishing Spots List

Black Desert Online Fishing Spots List by EQBallzz

Due to the broken nature of fishing and the vastness of the water area I wanted to create a thread that would make an easy reference of where you can catch certain fish. I think most if not all fish can probably be caught in numerous locations so this wouldn’t be an exhaustive list but rather just give some locations of where I fish and what was caught there so others could potentially find a spot they know certain fish can be caught.

This is sort of a companion to another thread which documents all the broken fishing quests that call for one fish but really need another (thread can be found here: Quests With Wrong Information). Since the locations can often also be incorrect on the quest you can waste a lot of time fishing at the indicated location and never get the right fish. So this will just be an ongoing collection of screenshots with my fishing location on the map and what fish I caught there. I will continue to add more fish to that location as I find them. If you catch a fish not listed at one of these locations please post and I will include it in the list.

Others that want to post their own locations are welcomed to do so. Maybe we can get a more exhaustive reference of fish locations if enough people contribute. There also seems to be a distinction between being on a boat and on the shore with regard to what you can catch in the same location so I will indicate boat or shore for clarity.

Blue Tang – Butterflyfish – Cero – Checkerboard Wrasse – Dolphinfish – Flatfish – Rockfish – Round Herring – Sandeel – Sea Bass – Tapertail Anchovy – Whiting

  1. Fishing spot 1 is incorrect. I’ve gotten none of those fish there in that circle. Also, none of the fish say they are from cron castle from within the red circle in the screen shot. The only fish that say cron castle, are the ones under the bridge (none of which are on that list). I tested with 8 thick rods, skilled-1, and fishing stat = 5.

  2. Hey, thanks for these precious tips!
    I just have a question for the first spot when you say it’s above Cron Castle area : Do you mean Cron Castle NODE too or not?

    Because when I go barely exactly where the boat is on the screenshot, my node is affiliated to Luiviano’s island.

    Can you clarify it for me please, it would help me a lot for my next fishing goals!


  3. I still think buying the gold is so much easier than fishing for a week hahahah
