I spent over an hour and a half fishing for him in the Dalaran fountain only to find out that only the edges have the sewer loot tables, so I broke down and grabbed him from the AH. I don't care that I didn't get the achievement; I got a giant rat for my Critter team and that's what matters.

I set out to catch this in the Black Market with my fishing at around 85. It took me 5 days and a ton of trys. I eventually caught it off of the dock near Crows Tavern shortly after I hit 600 on my fishing skill. It will pop up but expect to try more then a 1000 times before it actually pops up, specially if you start low like i did.

Woot Finaly got this guy, spend many hours in Cataclysm times trying to fish this up and finally got him today after around 150 casts :)

I got mine from the BMAH for 1400g, making Breanni proud by getting another Pet, but making El sad by not getting it from actually fishing myself.

Finally got this guy today!

 

Took me 3248 casts @ about 3.8 a minute. That's about 855 minutes or 14.25 hours. Was it worth it? Depends how important achievements are to you. I found one on the AH for 2k and I'd say buying that would definitely be better value if I didn't care about the achievement.

 

My advice: Find something you can do while you're fishing. I played keno pop on a java games website. Fishing is awful, keno pop is awful, but if I put them together I'm moderately entertained!

Finally caught one in cantrips and crows in about 600 casts. Didn't do it in 1 session, went back and forth quite a lot of times.

 

Attempted to buy it from the black market auction house several times (to get the achievement) but kept getting outbid/never bothered to camp the AH :(

 

Oh well, got the achievement the proper way now!  :)

Don't make the mistake I made and buy it on the auction house.  That's great for beefing up yout unique pet collection, but you do not get the "I Smell a Rat" Achievment.

Back during Wrath I fished for this little guy for hours and hours with no luck. Eventually I gave up, but I swore I'd always come back for him. Surprisingly enough, he just dropped from a [Misty Satchel of Exotic Mysteries]!

Fished various spots and finally settled on the NE alley next to the wooden building.  After 428 casts, the sewer rat was mine!    Fishing skill around 500.

Where is the best place to get this guy in the sewers? My husband got his by the arena in the back. I have tried there and at the dock but no luck. I even got my fishing to 770 with hat, Kaluak pole, potion to transform me into a walrus and a lure.

Desperate in Dalaran

PS finally got it # 149

For those of you that are just as unlucky as I am, don't give up! I've been farming for this pet off and on for 2 years with no luck. Finally started the true grind yesterday, and after 9 hours, 2066 casts he was mine!

You wouldn't want to meet this rat in a dark alley. Or anywhere else, for that matter.
