This page summarises how to catch Firefin Snapper.
Catching Firefin Snapper
Detailed mapping of hard to find areas is shown below.
Commentary: Only about 10-15% of the catch from open water will be Firefin Snapper. Pool fishing will normally give a far better catch rate. Oil Spills in Stonetalon Mountains are a particularly good choice, because the zone is quiet, and there are only two pool types in the set (Wreckage and Oil Spill). Coastal Firefin Snapper School also tend to be plentiful in higher-skilled areas, since these pool sets contain the heavily-fished Stonescale Eel Swarm.
