This spot right here...

Terrifying, and highly rewarding. I started here at lvl 18 only fishing one thing out, but still worth 1100xp per cast. Left at 21 very shortly after. Anyone got any other good ones?

Yea I know of that area...I just need to get my fisher up since its low level. I might hold off on that for now since I don't really need fish and my inventory is starting to get full even with my retainer.

here is my contribution to this thread!

im currently lvl 36 and i was just outside the winery (i think thats what its called) sanctuary. once out the gates turn right toward raincatcher gully. fish on the left side of the bridge. here is what i was catching
lvl 20 copperfish - exp a little over 200
lvl 34 crabs - over 2k
lvl 40 discus - over 3k
over 40 couldnt bring up!!
bait - honeyworms (which are sold in the sanctuary)
i'm figuring that you can probably lvl ur character into the mid 40's at this spot.

enjoy!! Smiley: wink

Yes at lvl 20 the only fish that even bite are the copper fish, and they give 1000 ish exp a go. Also avoids inventory issues as you only get copper fish. A bit safe and boring though, but might be good from 15 on if it lets you fish there.

After you reach 27 in fishing go buy Chocobo Fly lure from Costa Del Sol and start fishing at Evershade in Central Shroud.

I'm getting Spotted pleco on regular basis (30%+ so far) with 2k exp on regular one.

location : 15X 25Y in Central Shroud.

Lv. 30 go to Costa Del Sol. You could take a ferry from Limsa near Fisherman Guild.

Its called WINEPORT. Best way to access it is to take a ferry from fishermans bottom to ALEPORT and catch a chocobo ride (Porter) back to Limsa Lominsa. When it passes WINEPORT (Just after zoning to Eastern La Noscea) jump off and go grab the Aetheryte and the choco guy. To get to the spot mentioned, go out of the gate and head south - careful aggro here can kill you. About 1 min run away is a small ferry on the river Eastern Aeglyss. Fish there. At lvl 22 I'm only getting Copperfish, but thats 1017 XP and 4000 XP for HQ. The best bit, you only need a stack of crow flies and 2 open inventory slots. I expect the fish will go to vendor but hey its a levelling spot. Warning, its not much fun fishing here, zzzz but if you must get levelled...

Thanks actually! I am level 33 so this is super helpful - and collecting baits and lures atm. I was fishing near there but only the spinning lure or what not would work at all.

I just checked this out - couldn't use the honeyworms cause I am too low, but using a crow fly I was getting about 1/3 of the copperfish as a HQ then mooching them for big ones.

So my exp (+3%) was:

NQ copperfish: 591
HQ copperfish (very common): 2313

Then I would mooch with the copperfish everytime it was available to land:

NQ Lamprey: 3532 (+100% for new record?)
HQ Lamprey: 7116
NQ Monke Onke: 2274

Monke Onke were the most common but yeah, getting 4400 for two casts pretty frequently was VERY NICE exp.

I think my max was just slightly over 21k with rested xp and an HQ.

I targeted spots where I could fish at no less than 2 levels below me. So if I were level 30, the fish was at least lvl 28+ and that typically gave about 4.1k xp per catch. The xp is a bit lower in the 20-30 levels range. About 2.2k - 2.8k per catch. Be sure and use jack-o-lanterns for food (16 gil each, last 30 min) as they give a +6% perception increase and +3% xp bonus.

I did:
25-30: Costa Del Sol w/floating minnow (Eastern La Noscea, have to chocobo there since ferry from Limsa Lominsa isn't available till lvl 30)
30-35: Moondrip w/Chocobo Fly (just north of Vesper Bay)
35-40: Dunefishing w/Sand Leach (Soggali's Dunes)
40-45: Burning Wall w/Stem Borers (East Thanalan)
45-50: Sky Fishing w/Hoverworms

As a note, buy a Crow Fly (*you should have it from your 20 quest*) and use that, so you don't spend money on bait.

Buy one for 240gil and use it forever.

Buy bait at Swiftperch and fish right outside on the coast. Or run up by Beacon Hill and fish over there, you can catch your level 15 quest fish there I believe.

I was still fishing Middle La Noscea then but I used bloodworms (lv10 bait) as soon as I got them from the class quest, was there until I could flag the level 15 quest for Navigator's daggers. I think it was the bait that was limiting you.

Just got up to the lure stage, pay attention to the sound it makes when something hooks on the line lol. I didn't know you could lose the lure! But I learned quick and only lost 1 crow fly lure. Watch out for that "crunch"!

I can confirm Costa Del Sol at 25+. I'm using that floating minnow and you will only catch Blowfish and get over 1000 exp each with the HQ being much more (+300%). Occoaionally you will get an Angelfish for just inder 1k exp, but those are very rare using a floating minnow. I'm level 27 and still getting over 1100 exp each, so I will stay there until 30.
