Giant Catfish Information

They are the main ingredient for broiled catfish served over rice, a dish the Tavern Keeper at Seafront wanted to try out, but according to the Seafront Tavern Keeper, catfish are slimy smelly, and gross. 

  • Giant Catfish is a freshwater fish that can be caught with Carp at the Eastern Road lake or at the Village by the fast travel boat, though the latter is rarer 
  • The fish will nibble only once, so reel in after the first bite even if the bob hasn't sunk.
  • Carp can be bought from the Tackle Shopkeeper at Seafront for 200 gold.
  • Catching Giant Catfish does not add it to the Fishmonger's inventory in Seafront




Giant Catfish Quest

The Giant Catfish is not part of one of the Fisherman's Quests, but it is a necessary catch in another Side Quest. They are used for a dish recipe the Tavern Keeper wants to try creating.
