Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza

Can you beat Azeroth's best anglers?

Competition is fierce at the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza! There can be only three winners each Sunday on each realm, but there are rewards for everyone who participates. Not only that, but there is also a chance to catch rare fish during the event which Fishbot 5000 in Booty Bay will take in exchange for even more unique loot.

The Fishing Extravaganza offers incredible rewards, if you're worthy! Other players are also competing for the prize, so time is definitely not on your side! 


The goal of the competition is to be the first to catch the required amount of fish. Only one hero can win each week.
Catch Speckled Tastyfish

Speckled Tastyfish  can be caught from any fishing pool around Northern Stranglethorn and the Cape of Stranglethorn while the tournament is running. The first three players who return to Riggle Bassbait in Booty Bay with 40 Speckled Tastyfish will be the winners for the week.

Become a renowned fishmaster!

There are unique prizes if you’re quick enough to come first, second or third in the Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza – not only that, but the first three each Sunday will also earn the Master Angler of Azeroth achievement.

Gold awaits you in the deeps

If you’re not one of the three winners, you can still sell your Tastyfish to Jang for gold, and if you are lucky enough to find one of the rare fish that can be caught only during the Extravaganza, you can trade them to Fishbot 5000 for winner-worthy prizes!

Merchants & Vendors

Jang, the Fishmaster Apprentice, is interested in buying all your leftover Tastyfish.
