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?
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?
