The Kalu'ak have a long tradition of honing our fishing skills by putting them to the the test every week.

The first person to catch and bring a blacktip shark to me will be rewarded handsomely, and be known as the greatest fisherman of the north... for a couple days at least.

The blacktip shark's favorite food is the pygmy suckerfish. Try fishing for the blacktip wherever you would normally catch the suckerfish.


Don't just stand there! Give me the shark and I'll declare you the winner!


You will be able to choose one of these rewards:
Inv jewelry ring 39.png
[Dread Pirate Ring]
Inv boots cloth 21.png
[Boots of the Bay]

You will also receive: 26g 46s (at level 80)



This quest can only be completed by the first person to arrive with the Inv misc fish 35.png [Blacktip Shark], otherwise see Better Luck Next Time.

Pygmy Suckerfish are pretty common in Sholazar Basin, so fishing there might be a good spot.

Elder Clearwater will announce the winner across Northrend (planet-wide also?):

Elder Clearwater yells: <Name> has won the Kalu'ak Fishing Derby!
