Ancient Fishes!!!

Boss Fish?
At each fishing site, powerful, ancient boss fishes will appear. Boss fishes are the beasts, ruling sites with strength and power.



When and where can I catch them?
You will see BOSS marks and the fishes' remaining amount of strengths. you'll also see the time remaining until the next time when the boss fishes appear. Look for the right timing and cast your fishing rod! Boss fishes appear on certain days and times. Check each fishing site for the mark. Once you find it, start casting the rod immediately! Use baits and paste baits exclusively for boss fishes for better results.

Boss Fish?
Boss fishes offer high rewards. You may earn up to 12 Stars! All boss fishes are ranked at  least Epic. Putting them in your aquarium will help you earn special stat boosts!

  3. Megalodon looks badass. I wonder how much his strenght will be, consider that BE at perfect popping up 15k+. He must be over the 40+k...if not thats a big dissapointment...
    That gonna be hardcore FTF to bring him in lol

    1. I'm not sure if you read the whole link or not. I did shorten everything GAMEVIL had to say about it, but it sounds like you are going to be able to try to wear down the strength of the fish. It sounds like it is designed to be a multiple attempted catch. I can't wait!

    2. Multiple attempt to real him in...
      Sounds pretty hard... Lets hope they dont make it so that when the line breaks u need to start all over again.. if thats the case im sure there will be a lot of angry ppls lol

    3. It did say that they will have a slow regeneration rate. I don't think GAMEVIL has led us wrong yet, but we'll see.

  7. Don't mean to be obtuse but where am I to see this Boss mark? Do I have to go into each fishing site or can I see this in the area map (ie. White clam town vs Jade Wharf)?

    Post says: "use bait or paste bait". What is the first bait supposed to be?
    I am playing at least 5 hours a day but seems to be missing all the good stuff : (

    2. TOO STRONG !!!!
      After 10 minnows and 3 encounters at Clam Beach, I was able to knock only 22% before time expired. (The boss fish's strength bar changed from blue to green.) May be I'm not ready for a boss fish yet .....
      My stats are 36xx, 33xx, 24xx, with SSF +16 or OT +14

    3. No I think you're doing it right. The way i read the instructions, it sounded like it was going to take multiple battles to get them landed. Keep at it if you see it again. If you can coninually knock down 22% at a time, you'll have it landed eventually.

    5. not sure if it applies but gamevil says that all fish in area must have already been caught. I think this means that you have to have the monster fish in area with boss needs to be in collections book

  15. today was mine first experience with the boss, i got him to 59% heath left.. i must say ive used stars to hunt him again. Ftf works till a certain moment. and then suddenly the line snapped, happens over and over again, on almost the same time. well i must say Gamevil has made the bosses soo that we need to hunt him again and again. ive used 40* thats 10 times on repeating cathing him. but im sure if u dont use stars. "in the time the boss appeared". u will never have the opportunity to hook him ten times... so gamevill has made another method for us to buy more stars and keep reeling those bosses in...

    2. if your line snaps. then u can rehunt him for 4 stars. thats the stars i ment. Like on the premium sites. but u can only rehunt him up to 10 times a day. after mine 10 time. i tried to hook him on the normal way and burned over 40-50 minnows but he just dont bite again....

  16. Read the post from the guy above that said he got 3 bites in 10 minnows, but no such luck for me. it was at clam beach also. Burned through over 40 minnows, 20 spinners, 15 cranks, 20 s paste baits, and 10 master baits and not one bite. I was "lucky" enough to see it with just over 58 minutes on his timer so I went to town on my baits. This is too much of a waste for me to try anymore until people can gather more data about which baits to use, where to cast, different strategies, etc. Hope you guys have better luck than me!

  19. Hi guys,

    I just saw one of the boss fish at fog lake. Caught it 2 times within 10 minnows...after that, i burned through another 20 minnows and decided to call it quits with 15 mins still remaining since it was just too expensive for me at my current level and equip. I was only able to shave off 10 percent and I never used the retry with stars since I figure I'd rather save that for better equip than use it on this guy haha...anyways, for anyone who is compiling a list, the boss fish I got at fog lake was the 6th one after the bloody emperor in the fish book...dunno its name but it i has a long neck and 4 flippers...looks sorta like the Plesiosaur dinosaur (google if you dunnno wut it looks like)


    also, i'm looking for friends who feed often, gift everyday, and have a 3-star tank....my id is: jamooga

    please add me! thanks :)

  22. Just saw one at Manglo River. It took minnows and seemed to bit near the reeds. However, I burned through 40 minnows and only shaved its life down to 45%. This fish is crazy hard. Every time I would get close to being able to use my skill the line would snap. FTF seems the most viable way to catch them, but it still seems impossible even with 3xxx stats. Any suggestions? Thought I would just include my experience.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hooked a monster after 3 tries with minnow at manglo river. After spending 40 stars the fishes health reduced to 72%. Simply snaps the line when it goes berserk (blue mode? ). Any suggestions on how to tackle the monsters?

    1. From what I've heard, you have to let go and align your rod to where the monster is running when he's in counter (blue) mode, otherwise your line will automatically snapped.

      Delete
    2. When it goes blue you need to follow the fish with your rod otherwise it will snap everytime

      Delete
  24. This manglo boss is ridiculous lol. Used 74 minnows just to hook him 6 times.... and i knocked around 25% of his health, 1 h time to reel those bosses in is just to short. And the biting rate is just a joke...

    ReplyDelete
  25. Seems like this is all a setup for them putting out more expensive equipment and rods =o/ pretty sure that why they started out with c ranked abilities (ie suppress fish from diving like with the ocean tyrant. Plus giving us more friends = more chances to gain stars without paying = temporarily making people happy = sticking it to us with more expensive equip. within a week of me buying full pirate gear they came out with better. within a couple weeks of buying twilight they came out with better rods. I haven't and dont intend on spending real money. just going to keep grinding people's tanks for wolfish and see what they come out with next. all the gear will be outdated soon anyway with all the updates.

  30. So, not exactly sure what this is, but caught 2 real easy at Black Rock. They are the Bulgyhead Wrasse, but are golden colored and named Blackfish with a 10M gold star next to it and an s-chum icon on the tail. Gamevil is going to have to give us more tank slots, since I've got several Epic fish in there and still trying to star fish the wolfies & orcas, it's a strain to now think I need to put these in the tank too.

    1. You don't need to. Look at the new event tab.

    2. 1. You don't need to keep these in your tank for credit. it keeps track under the event tab. 2. Why keep maxed out orcas in your tank? Wolfish are worth the same and easier to catch. If anyone knows a good reason please respond because I have yet to figure out the point of this. 3. Keeping epic fish in your tank that are not worth stars ruins people chances of catching fish worth stars from your tank. I'm in the process of deleting people that save a bunch of crappy "epic" fish (not worth stars) because I have half the chance of catching fish worth stars from them and i dont spend money, only grind tanks for stars. no sympathy for cluttering your tank with these.

  31. boss baits 100 star/50.I used them and the chance of hooking the boss is around 25%.Those baits arent 10% chance to hook the boss i hooked it several times but not even close to finish it.I have one question why the line brakes just before you used the special finishing move?

    1. It's when the fish goes "blue". you've got to stop reeling and follow the fish with your rod tip. That's the only way to stop it from breaking and even that is hard to do.

  32. Boss fish today (Friday) 4pm-5pm ET at Black Rock Beach.
    I hooked up with it twice using Expert Bait.
    Also tried with regular S-Spinner but no luck.
    Got it down to 89%. Gonna take a lot more tries....

    1. Boss fish is back for me 7pm-8pm ET at Black Rock Beach.
      I bought some of the Boss Bait and that works pretty well....but I've only knocked off about 10% in 10 minutes........no way I can get this thing killed in just an hour.

      What I didn't understand before, was that the amount you have knocked off is only good for the one hour that the Boss is present. I thought my Boss fish would start at 89% the next time I hooked him, but here we are a few hours later and I had to start at 100% again.

  33. If you run out of time, change to the next time zone on your device(ie. eastern us to central). The boss fish will show up at the same health percentage where you left off. This is what some people are doing to catch these ancient fishes.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wish I had taken the time to read all of the previous posts in more detail.

    I can only confirm what others have already posted.
    1) Black Rock Beach Boss hits at 3000 and gives golden reel.
    2) Fish energy bar is blue from 100%-80% (but 80% looks like the bar is empty).
    3) At 80% Energy Bar turns green and bar is full.
    4) It's VERY difficult to follow the fish with your rod when he goes blue - line almost always snaps.
    5) I spent 100 stars and burned through most of my 50 Boss bait in an hour, and only got him down to 70%. Once he got below ~75% he started to get easier to reel in.
    6) You get the change to "retry" 10 times per day, for 4 stars each. I had burned through my retries the first hour I fished. I wish I had saved them, I think I might be able to come close if I still had those avail.

    So....the best tips I can give are:
    Start at the top of the hour, you'll need the entire hour. Use Boss Bait. Get past the initial 20% (from 100% to 80%) until you get the green fish energy bar instead of the blue one. Once you're down below 80%, use your 10 changes to retry.

    So that's 140 stars, probably not worth it for many people, but I enjoy the challenge.

    FYI I'm fishing with Ocean Tyrant+11 (need to get more upgrade potions!!)

  35. i think an hour is enough if u use boss fish bait only. i got the black rock beach boss today within 45 min. took me 87 boss bait. 10 retry which is 40 stars. and repaired rod 2x. im using stf+15 att 3124. i got the boss from fog lake also, took me around 240 minnows which is about the same as 87 boss bait.
    so if u wiling to spend stars for boss bait then i think 1 house if not bad for landing it.

  37. So in order to catch a ancient boss fish you need to spend 50 stars for bait, 40 stars on retries, a ton of energy and hours of time to catch at best a 12 star fish. No thanks ill pass on this con.

  40. As someone mentioned, it is not the number of stars you will spend on getting the ancient bosses, but the challenge of landing one. I have so far landed three bosses and spent an average of 240 stars each. But i feel satisfied... :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. So here's my tip on fishing the ancient bosses whenever you want. Its a matter of changing the time zone on your device to find a time the bosses are biting. For example: my time zone is united states pacific gmt-7. If no bosses are biting I change my time zone to gmt-6 then check the game and see if the boss is there. If not I change the time zone to gmt-5 and so on and so forth. I just keep changing the time zone one step at a time till the boss shows up. I was able to catch two bosses today in under an hour using this method. You have to change the time zone. It not a matter of just changing the clock on your device. I hope I explained this good enough and good fishing to all

    1. I will be trying this method, as right now, the fish are only biting at 3am or 7am. At 3 I'm asleep and at 7, I'm working. BTW, if you're Pacific Time then you're GMT -8. I'm in the same time zone :)

      dinkdink

      Delete
    2. I've found that if you set your time zone and it changes your devices time to 5pm the calm beach boss is always there. And the wapo boss is 11pm. So just go through the different time zones until it changes your device time to either 5 or 11 and your golden. You can literally fish either boss any time you want. I caught the sea cow at 9am,11am,4pm 7pm all in the same day. And the boss never bites at the time gamevil posts in the pop up. It bites on my time zone at 5pm and 11pm also

      Tbaocpe

      Delete
  42. you can capture these bosses spending up to 100 stars. the last two are able to catch them spending a total of 190 stars. it is important to try to make the whole minute of struggle in order to inflict damage in May. IMPORTANT: If the boss did not take the bait after 2 cast try to run a few feet to the right or left without watching the ripples. this method seems to work fine with me.

    1. You only need to have caught the boss at the site that the ancient is at. If you've caught a black snakehead, you can catch the Ancient at Wapo. If you've caught the white tiger shark, you can catch the Ancient at Black Rock.

  52. It not the matter of easy or hard. U actually need a lot of boss bait and must hang in there. Some boss fish bites more than others.i have caught boss fish with 60 to 90 boss depending on with one u catching. If ur luck is high he will bite more often .

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oo and also cast in mid to max middle cast. Ripples give good result.when the boss is green and yellow do regular reeling. And when red do full tention. And try to last the whole minutes. I realize if u do full tention reeling from the get, ur line snaps must quicker. Good luck
