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.

    Question: Will the rarity of the fish matter, as to how many people are in the same area as you fishing? I fish in areas that have an abundance of people, the fishing resource always says “Not Enough” or Exhausted, but it always seems like I get the rarest fish in those areas. As we speak, I am fishing by myself, in an area that has an abundant fishing resource. Thus far, I have been here for about 30-40 mins afk fishing, and I have yet to pick up one rare fish. I have a bunch of blue fish, a bunch of green fish, but no Gold ones. Any thought’s to this? Or should I just go back and fish in an overpopulated area? EvilDoUsHarm says you should try and find an area with a fishing resource of “abundant” but I have yet to see a Gold or Rare fish yet where I currently am.

    best place to fish is near port ratt ride you boat out a little ways till the shore is hazy then fish. youll get merlin swordfish tuna and things like that. all the fish will cost more than 20k and most over 120k

    When I first started, I caught regular Tuna but I forget where. Is there such a place??? Also, I was told about amberjack and crab markers. Where are they exactly.

    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.

    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!
