Catching Oily Blackmouth

Commentary: Up to 25% of the catch from open water can be Oily Blackmouth. Mid-skill areas, such as the Wetlands, seem to be best for open water fishing of Oily Blackmouth. Overall, pool fishing is normally more efficient. The lowest skill areas (The Barrens, Darkshore, Silverpine Forest, and Westfall) contain only Oily Blackmouth Schools and Floating Wreckage Pools, so the chance of finding an Oily Blackmouth in these areas should be higher. However, in higher-skilled areas, where Stonescale Eel Swarms are also found, Oily Blackmouth pools tend to be ignored - so you should find plenty there too.
