Anyone else done this yet? You get to use your Dunefishing trait and head south of Byregot's Strike in Southern Thanalan using Sand Leeches, but I've gained 2 levels fishing here without hooking a desert catfish yet. I've tried mooching the few HQ's I've caught, but the fish usually gets away as I'm unable to reel them in. I'm guessing the fish I'm unable to reel in are the catfish, so hopefully a few more levels will have me landing them but I was wondering if anyone else has caught them yet.

I don't have my map up right now (can anyone log in?), but I did the same thing. I eventually started looking for another fishing spot and found them quite quickly. I think it was East of the desert camp?

Edit: try the west side too. I'm thinking about the map upside down (POV from the wrong fishing spot :)

East of Byregot's Strike @ 25X 35Y Sand Leech Bait. No Mooching to fish it up.

Also having trouble w/ this quest. I've gained nearly 2 levels over a few hours and no desert catfish (but dozens of everything else, including the lvl 50 mooched fish. Its also crazy confusing because there are 2 fishing holes in the desert AND also a FATE that is the same name as the quest!! I also keep losing fish occasionally so not sure if I need better gear (I'm 37 and my gear is 25-35, rod is the 30 reward one). I also just repaired everything just in case. Gonna just keep grinding out at the Sagoli Dunes hole because there's a ??? fish I've not caught, and I'm assuming its the catfish. Any ideas?

Hate to say this but when I did it a few weeks back the catfish came up in the first 5 casts for me and I saw it happen for others too. I think most of my gear was at or near 35 with the newest rod I could equip and some perception food as always. I guess you got there in the end, so what changed?

My gear is not up to date. It took me a little over 1/2 hr to hook a desert catfish. As expected once you hook your first one, then they start pouring in. >.<

I've not seen the level 50 mooched fish, but according to the fish log I've caught everything at that spot (over by where those drakes spawn and people go for that one quest in Forgotten Springs.) What's it called?
