What are the hardest fish to catch in Sea of Thieves?
Of those on the list, the Sand Battlegill, Snow Wrecker, and Shadow Stormfish are the top most challenging fish for you to come by. Arguably, the Sand Battlegill and Shadow Stormfish are likely the hardest, merely because they are available during times of peril, and you might be preoccupied withing trying to do something else during these encounters.
You can only achieve the prices on our list if you correctly cook the fish before selling it to the Hunter’s Call traders. However, if you were to give it to them straight raw, they would provide a significantly lower price. For example, a raw Shadow Stormfish is worth 4,500, and 11,250 as a trophy.
It is not easy to encounter these fish, but the more tries you time, the closer you can get to successfully finding them. We recommend treating them as side projects while working on main objectives unless you and your crewmates want to embark on purely fishing adventures.
