Catching Bloated Salmon
- Commentary: Like the Bloated Redgill, this fish may be exceptionally rare. Some anglers have cast in the correct waters many thousands of times, and still not caught it. Good luck!

Flycatcher, April 2011:
I only need Bloated Salmon for Oceanographer.... so I've only been fishing on the coast at Silithus... for ages and ages and nothings come up... and we're talking a good 3500 casts here. If I catch it at one of the other locations will it still count towards oceanographer?
el, April 2011:
Flycatcher - Yes. The achievement only records a successful looting of the fish.
Azeroth Salmon are not saltwater fish, so it was always part of the wrong achievement. Catching inland fish from the coast of Silithus is a longstanding (for about 5 years) bug.
Flycatcher, April 2011:
Ohhhhhhh..... thanks for that!!!!

Stats from Un'Goro Crater (Marshlands) while going for the Bloated Salmon.....why the 32 Pound Salmon is the only biggest "Pound" fish that not an achivement I'll never know (frankly all these bloated fish should be on the One That Didn't Get Away Achievement if you ask me).....luckily I already have the 29 pounder ;-)
