Detailed Guide: Catching Stonescale Eels - This topic answers the question, where is the best place to catch a Stonescale Eel?

Commentary: The best time and place to catch many Stonescale Eels is in Azshara's Bay of Storms area (open water), between 00:00 and 06:00. Over 20% of the catch will be Stonescale Eel. At other times of day, pool fishing is likely to be more effective. Pool fishing is also best where the fisherman or woman has a low skill level, since Stonescale Eel can be caught from pools around much of Stranglethorn Vale. Due to the way pools appear, and the popularity of Stonescale Eel Swarms, you are likely to have to fish all other pool types in the area before Stonescale Eel Swarms start appearing.
