Catching Icefin Bluefish
Detailed mapping of hard to find areas is shown below.
Notes: Bluefish Schools are found in Skysong Lake, Lake Sunspring, and the water between Garadar and Halaa. Some pools in Skysong Lake (Nagrand) cannot be fished by short races (such as Gnomes).
Commentary: Approximately 20% of the catch from open water will be Icefin Bluefish, with no clear difference between higher and lower skill areas. Bluefish Schools contain an overall average of just under 5 Icefin Bluefish per pool. Due to the way pools appear, you may need to fish from all pool types in Nagrand, before fresh Bluefish Schools spawn. Overall, pool fishing will almost always give the greatest number of Icefin Bluefish per hour.
