Lilyana, October 2010:
There's no info posted on the Fishing Locations page about Molten Core fishing. I wasn't sure if this was due to the lack of fish in the lava (all I've caught so far is Coal, Essences of Fire and "Old Skull"s) or for some other reason, but I feel it would be better for the information about lava fishing to be presented there too if possible.

Thanks. It looks like it's not listed outside of the Fish Finder, because the no-junk skill isn't known. I shall fix it in due course... [Should now be fixed.]
