To make your fishing even more enjoyable, be sure to invest Ability Points to unlock Angler Action (gain AP for catching a fish, 18 AP). The fishing spots I’ve used to catch the quest fish are the ones next to the Navyth. In this guide, we’re going to help you complete Final Fantasy XV Fishing quests.

Fishing Buddies – Crag Barramundi

The first fishing quest is the Fishing Buddies quest. To complete it, you have to catch the Crag Barramundi. Fishing buddies quest is located next to the marshy waters north from the Wiz Chocobo Post, south from the Coernix Station.To catch the Crag Barramundi, take a look at the mini map, at the upper right corner. Aim the pole toward the location of the yellow dots. This is where you can catch Crag Barramundi. I managed to catch it while it was day (1pm) with a Sweet Jamming lure.

As for the reward, you’ll get 1 500 EXP, a Knife T. Tonberry lure and the Grilled Wild Barramundi recipe (+80 attack and magic, +500 health).

Fishing Naturally – Cherrycomb Trout

The second one is the Fishing Naturally quest. The main objective is to catch a Cherrycomb Trout. Navyth, who gives you the quest, is located west from Lestallum. Follow the road to the west, until you cross the river, in the vicinity of the Mynbrum Haven Campground.To catch the Cherrycomb Trout, you need to aim for the fish marked as a yellow dot with a small ring around it (minimap). The lure I used was from the previous fishing quest reward – Knife T. Tonberry. It was early in the morning when I cought the fish (8am).

As for the reward, you’ll get 2 000 EXP and the Butterfly Edge (150 defense rod).

Navyth’s Challenge – Vesper Gar

Things get messy with the next one Navyth’s Challenge quest. What makes it difficult is the quest objective – a rare fish called Vesper Gar. Navyth will wait for you next to the Vesperpool, located in the northwestern part of the map.To catch this fish, the best thing you can do is to see what it looks like. It has a long, thin body. It is marked with a blue mark on the mini map. Once you throw in the lure, pay attention to the fish below the surface and search for the one that looks like the Vesper Gar. The lure I used is a Stinker and it was at dawn (5am).

As for the reward, you’ll get 3 000 EXP and the Invincible Iron Giant lure (it dives when reeled in and floats when tension is released).

Angler’s Nightmare – Devil of the Cygillan

Galdin Quay (in the southeastern part of the map) is the next stop. Head there and look for Navyth on the beach. To complete the Angler’s Nightmare quest, you’ll need to catch the Devil of the Cygillan.

You’ll have to be at least level 7 in order to catch it. It can be found at the Galdin Shoals fishing spot – you’ll find it by following the coast to the east from the restaurant. It won’t be visible on the minimap unless you have level 10 fishing. You’ll get 5000 EXP when you finally catch it, along with the Tranquility rod (290 defense). It took us about 10 minutes to catch with using the Whiskers: Pearly Moogle lure, although we’ve heard other lures can be used as well.
