Peanutty wrote:Only advice I can give is to take advantage of Fish of the Day spawns and to fish in moderation. I always try to read or do something else on the side while fishing, to just keep it relaxed as possible.

This, and try not to focus too much on the mentality "Another fish but NO CARP YET". I've found best just to fish and not to think the carp, it will come when it will come and stressing over it on each cast just makes things worse - again, for me at least.

My carp experience so far:

Tiny Green Carp - caught 13.3.2013

    Fished from pools only

    Location: Vale of Eternal Blossoms, lake beneath Mogu'Shan palace, next to Aki
    Casts: Don't remember the exact amount but it's between 40-80 casts. Caught from Emperor Salmon pool.

Tiny Blue Carp - caught 14.3.2013

    Fished from pools only

    Location: Vale of Eternal Blossoms, lake beneath Mogu'Shan palace, next to Aki
    Casts: 30-40 casts. Caught from Jewel Danio pool.

Tiny Red Carp - not yet caught

    Fishing from pools only

    Location: Dread Wastes, Lake of Stars
    Casts: Currently 200 casts from Spinefish Schools.

Tiny White Carp - not yet caught

    Starting after red.

Fished up the Tiny Green from the fish of the day pools around Stormstout brewery. I noted that this also appeared while I was in a raid, ready to kill Sha of Spam :)

Got my Tiny White Carp at the small pool of water right at the lowest part of the Temple of the White Tiger.

Probably about 200 casts at that spot before I caught it in open water.

Around 1300 casts between Vot4W and Vale so far for Blue/Green and and another 200 trying for the Red.

No luck catching any of them, so just the white for now. But it's a start I guess.

Three out of four carp done. I'm not counting casts, just fishing while I watch Netflix. One of the advantages of not currently being permitted to work, I'll grant you.

Just the blue fellow to go ^^

I fished in the reef octopus daily swarm and got the white carp. I spent about six hours fishing in the mantis shrimp spawns but have had no luck with any if the other three as of yet.

I have however, been able to get a ton of ironpaw tokens by making groceries. Also was able to help a guildie get enough to get his cooking bell. That's a lotta' fish!

The tiny red carp hates me. T~T

I almost filled a guild bank tab with stacks of fish... you'd think I'd have emptied the lake by now.

At night, the Pandaren fill the lake again. I overheard farmer yoon complaining about it the other day. :D

Followed some advice and fished from the small lake near Niuzao Temple, ended up catching mine in open water there after maybe two hours of fishing. I wasn't counting casts (sorry!), but I was using the Pandaren Fishing Charm and the item appeared as a secondary fish. I'll try for the other three later tonight.


How are people getting secondary fish from open water? I thought the charm only granted extra fish from pools?


I think the point being when you catch the carp it's the second fish caught. ie. Golden Carp plus your preciousssss... :lol:

Maybe my the Pandaren Fishing Charm helped, maybe it didn't (I caught all of mine in open water) but I sure as heck wasn't going to gamble on it! I had the charm so I used it.

No harm using the charm in open waters but it doesn't affect positively either :)

Last night I finally got the red and green carps. I did about 400 casts in the fish of the day pools for the green as it was Krasarand Paddlefish and nada. This followed two separate days I did about the same number of casts in green carp fish of the day pools. After finishing the 20 ironpaw tokens, I made some +150 fishing lures and went over to Fish Felreed's dock. Fishing hat, pole and +150 lure on I caught the green carp from open water about 40 casts later.
The tiny red carp I'd tried fishing in open water at Rikkitun Village previously with no luck. This time I headed to the lake that the fish dude tamer stands by and used my +150 lures along with my hat and pole. I almost didn't notice when I caught it about 60 casts later.

I know it's just anecdotal evidence, but it certainly feels like there's something to getting your fishing up past the 'no junk' skill level of a zone.

I now have all 4 tiny carp and will not be fishing again for a very very long time.
I caught all 4 in open water at the spots posted by Chibipriest on the official WoW battle pets forum.

White was my first catch that I made an earlier post on in this thread, about 150-200 casts by the temple of the white tiger.
Blue on the day I caught it was about 120 casts by the alliance shrine in Vale.
Green came shortly after Blue at Fish Fellreed's dock about 150 casts.
Red felt like it took forever, I had to take a break and eat some lunch between starting and actually catching it. Probably close too 400 casts over by Niuzao temple.

These totals are completely ignoring any fishing done prior to the play sessions in which I caught them. In total I probably caught around 2200 fish, maybe more, before getting all my tiny carp.
Catching the last one was a very satisfying task in WoW and a good way to get a lifetime supply of MoP fish!

*Edit - All done with only my +30 bonus from my fishing pole, no hat, no lure, nothing else boosting it. Did it on my PvE alt so I could watch Netflix and fish without worry.

Red carp continues to evade me. Putting in 2-4 hours of solid fishing in open water daily and nadda.

._. Fishy, why you evade me? I JUST WANNA LOVE YOU.

I recommend if you're going to fish these in open water to stock up on some Heat-Treated Spinning Lures. +150 fishing is a great boost for 15 minutes, and they aren't very expensive to make if you have a miner or engineer.

I just want to add that I caught 2 Green Carps while waiting for Galleon to spawn (cannot learn the second one). Both on alts who don't have the fishing charm, both in open water, and at lower skill level (under 400). The carps ALWAYS show up as secondary to your main catch, regardless of whether or not you are using the charm. So that seems to disprove the whole theory about how the charm helps to catch them.

In addition to the heat seeking lures that Doobjanka mentioned, I am thinking that the lure master tackle boxes would be handy. Can stay out fishing longer before needing to empty bags. :)

Just got my Tiny Green Carp out of a Jade Lungfish school in the Jade Forest. Using my Mastercraft Kalu'ak Fishing Pole, Weather Beaten Fishing Hat and Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm. Fished up a Jade Lungfish, a Flying Tiger Gourami and the Tiny Green Carp

When you catch something special, whether it's a sea turtle, tiny carp, giant rat or daily quest fish, it will show up in addition to whatever it was you actually caught that cast.

I'm pretty sure you won't get it with trash items, so try to have a skill high enough for that area.

*edit* if they're attaching a pandaren fishing charm and then fishing open water, the charm does nothing.

I've fished ~300 fish since patch and honestly didn't expect to have a carp by now (which I haven't), but looking at some of the low numbers here, maybe I have been unlucky!

Heh, and I just got the Sea Turtle while fishing. Have to count but it took like 900 casts from pools - without trying of course. ^_^
