    I've fished all over underrail, found most of the fish so far, but the supposedly common slackjaw hasn't taken the bait even once. Wiki says this is a common fish in all parts of the map, even more so in core city. Is fishing bugged or is this just extreme RNG mathematical coincidence?

    Just coincidence. You can try fishing in the water in Foundry, I always find them to be pretty common there. None of the other common fish/eels are possible there so the chances are pretty good.

    Anyone caught the Phantom Jelly? I've been fishing the Upper Caves with 4 rods lined up next to each other, lot of fishing while listening to podcasts but no luck.

    I often catch them in out-of-the-way pools in the Black Sea area.

    Slackjaws are very common around Core City, both the harbor and the sewers.

    I fish in two places: In the area where Mordre is, and outside the Hanging Rat bar. Ghostface aside, I catch everything in these two places. However, it is true that the Phantom Jelly is one of the rarer finds, along with the shrimp.

    You can get most of the fish by robbing the natives, if you have the expansion. And if you get lucky with the random fisherman encounter, he'll sell the ghostfish.

    On that note, is there a limit to the fish that'll take the bait from a fishing rod per spot? Nine times out of ten I get max 3 fish and then nothing for a very long time unless I move the rod / change areas. Or does it depend on the water source?

    Bullhead is a very useful drug -for non psi builds- that requires fish ingredients (but it also requires some Biology investment).
