im aiming for the salty achievment and am planning on trying to catch the 32 pound catfish for the one that didnt get away, im planning on fishing in the oasis in northern barrens so that i can make gold from the deviate fish that i catch but douse the 32 pond catfish drop from the oasis because on this site it says on the list of fish that drop from barrens that the 32 pound catfish douse drop but n brackets not in oasis.
Thanks if any one can clear this up for me

Yes, it should be possible to catch it in any inland part of the Northern Barrens (with the possible exception of The Sludge Fen - there's no reliable data for that pond). The 17-32 Pound Catfish page lists both the Oasis and non-Oasis, but separately, because the skill required to fish without junk varies slightly.
