Fishing Broken

The absence of a single blue post acknowledging this bug is poor customer service. Just acknowledge it.

Bump for acknowledgment. This has been going on for days and I have not seen a single Blizzards employee comment.

Bay of Storms, Coastal areas, and pretty much any area worth fishing is broken, and in a week Raw Summer Bass is no longer obtainable for 6 months, so yeah… it’s be great if someone would actually speak up and at least acknowledge the issue.

Yep like all the above. Just can’t fish in those Coastal areas. Surely Blizz must know and can at least acknowledge it?

Yesterday I fished for hours in Tanaris and did not experience this.

I didn’t check the Hinterlands though.

Did somebody say Fishing? I love fishing. I know some of you think I’m crazy, but I’m hooked on it, and one of the things that’s really cool about fishing in WoW Classic is the seasonal fish.

We realize that Summer is coming to an end soon, and there’s currently a bug preventing you from netting seasonal fish from the oceans of Azeroth. We realize this is a time sensitive issue, and people want to be able to catch Summer Bass before the Summer ends, so we made it a reel top priority, but this issue turned out to be a can of worms, and as a result, probably will not be fixed before the end of summer.

Sorry we didn’t catch it sooner, but we think we’ve got a line on it, and we’ll let you know if we’re able to land it.


Reading between the puns, I’m guessing this means we’re supposed to be catching seasonal fish when we receive no loot on catches?


We’re pretty sure that’s the source of the issue, yes.


The clever puns have made this news somewhat tolerable.

i guess we can delay the pitchforks and fire…for now! I have my eye on you blues

Sounds fishy but we’ll let you off the hook.


The winter fish are the only ones that are crucial in recipes anyway.



Seasonal fish are working on Arugal, or at least they were when I leveled up my fishing about a week ago.

EDIT: Ahh this is a new bug since the last reset. Interesting.

I thought for shore I’d be having fun casting away, but the tides have turned. My empty line has made this my own personal shell, as I filet here feeling kelpless.

There is the problem! If we are suppose to net the Summer bass… Nets aren’t craftable til The Burning Crusade by tailors.

oh good. so we’re gonna lose time getting agi fish.

i guess puns will have to be a substitute for all the agi dps who are about to start raiding.


Easiest solution (from a layman’s standpoint, I’ve no idea how easy/difficult it’d be on the technical end) to people complaining that they couldn’t catch Summer Bass due to the bug would be to implement a weekend/week long event where “the waters are unseasonably warm” and Summer Bass are available to be fished up.

does that also mean we CAN NOT fish up Winter Squid in a few days?

Good news! I’m all done with fishing puns!

Better news! With this morning’s restarts, and subsequent restarts in each region, we believe this issue (and a bunch of other stuff) will be fixed!

Enjoy, and let us know if you see it again.
