    The Winter Squid page said no post-Cata comments yet, so here are mine. I caught 12 Winter Squid and 7 Raw Glossy Mightfish in 30 minutes, 11:30 pm - 12:00 a.m. tonite, 10-13-11, west of Land's End Beach, sitting on a piece of wreckage jutting up from the ocean. Also Raw Spotted Yellowtail and assorted others. Was after the Squid.

    I've caught winter squid on the coast of Blasted Lands along with glossy's and the lobsters.

    Just noted, you can't catch this in Azshara anymore since Cataclysm. Spent about an hour out there fishing until I went to Wowhead and read the comments there.

    Don't waste your time in Azshara, go to Blasted Lands. :-)

    Not correct. As of today, Winter Squid can still be caught in Ruins of Arkkoran, as it says on the Azshara and Winter Squid pages. The sub-zone is now critical, and probably an oversight by Blizzard's Quality Assurance, since the rest of the zone did change in Cataclysm.

    That said, the catch rate in Blasted Lands and Swamp of Sorrows is higher, so those are better choices for catching Winter Squid.

    (The Catching Winter Squid article is old research, as it says at the top: The catch patterns are still accurate, but the precise zones and waters got switched around in Cataclysm. It didn't feel right to re-write 6-year old research, to pretend that I was fishing in different zones, just to update it for Cataclysm.)
