Wizard101 Players Fish up Huge Wins!

We hope you were paying attention to our Social Media and Message Boards on Friday! We announced a special one-day, day-long fishing tournament in Wizard101 held on Saturday, February 21st.

We’ve compiled all our data, and we have our winners along with some pretty amazing statistics! In total for the day 117,987 fish were caught in Wizard101 from over 12,000 participants! As is commonplace with fishing, fish weren’t the only things caught as 12,917 chests were also netted during the event. Congrats on all the loot!

Our winners were wide and varied as well. Some were striving very hard for the tournament, and others just made a very lucky catch without much effort at all. Here are your grand prize winners . . . Congrats!

  • Vanessa MythDust caught the Largest Fish, (a 55.1 Blackberry Jellyfish).
  • Justin SkullMask caught the Smallest Fish (a 6.5 Cold Cod) – Justin only caught seven fish the entire day. That’s some awesome luck!
  • Sophia LifeCaster caught the Most Epic Fish (103 total).

From the data it appears Sophia’s cash cow (or cash fish as the case may be) was the Boss Hog fish! Our guess is she found a nice fishing spot for those Boss Hogs and didn’t stop catching them all day long!


In total for the day, 535 Epic Fish were caught. Most of those fish were Cranky Catfish, Blackberry Jellyfish, Sturgeon General, and Sophia’s Boss Hog Haul. (Side note, it looks like next fishing tournament we should do something that focuses on that rare Musushi fish!)


Winners of our sub-categories this fishing tournament were as follows:

  • Sarah Hex caught the Most Dekoi (249 total).
  • Adam LegendFlame caught the Smallest Jellyfish (22.9 fish size) – Adam only caught 7 fish the entire day.
  • Caroline MoonStone caught the smallest Eel (17.9 fish size)
  • Alexandria Wildflower caught the largest Codfather (36.6 fish size)
  • Valdus DarkBreeze caught the largest Toddpole (42.1 fish size) – Valdus only caught 6 fish the entire day.

Congratulations again to all of our winners, enjoy your Crowns that we’ve applied to your accounts!

    That was a LOT of fun. Thank you Wizard101 😀 I didn’t win anything but I made it into three lists with a forth place in one so I think I did my fishing spells proud. I can’t wait for the next one. ❤

    Thank you Wizard101. 🙂

  4. julian / Feb 23 2015 3:36 pm

    Ugh i thought you will still get it if you sold you fish eh.. i got two rainbow-life. fishes and 3 catfish-death.

  5. Calamity Grove / Feb 23 2015 3:46 pm

    Hope you have more tournaments like this, I was not able to attend, but it drew my attention to fishing. I have had no reason to fish because I need my energy for gardening and pet training. I hope in the future you think about filling those Gold Chests with energy elixir.

    • Alex Fireblade / Feb 23 2015 9:39 pm

      That is a great idea about having the elixirs in the Chests!
      If this would be implemented, I think that it should go to the gift window, maybe because some of us do not want to use it right away.
      Or perhaps, it could fill only a certain amount of energy, like, maybe double the current amount, or 30% of max amount, etc.

      But that is a great idea!

    I loved it. I even made it in the top 50 in largest fish, and I only fish about 20 times that day. Looking forward for the next fishing tournament! congrats to the winners!

    • glynn gray / Feb 23 2015 7:52 pm

  8. Timothy DeathBlade / Feb 23 2015 4:00 pm

    I wish I had known I would have loved to be there for it sadly I don’t have a social media account of any kind and refuse to they cause more trouble than there worth . Next time how about announcing it ahead of time so we can all be there and share the fun.

    • Anonymous / Feb 23 2015 8:05 pm

      I didn’t know about the tournament and I love to fish it would have been fun If you announced it in the game congrats to the winners though!

    • bethanne / Feb 25 2015 6:15 am

      announcing ahead of time is a great idea. I also don’t mess around with social media. I also liked the idea of elixirs in the chests.

  16. Nightstrider / Feb 23 2015 5:25 pm

    You should definitely give more warning next time. Catching one fish of the correct type shouldn’t make leaderboard for most fish caught of that type. That’s a big indicator that people didn’t hear about this. The rewards were great, the categories were decent, but the notice was lacking.
    It was still fun to see most of my in-game friends fishing, which normally they don’t. “Can you come help for a second?” “One minute, I need to catch this fish” 😛

    • Anonymous / Feb 23 2015 6:08 pm

      congrats everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations to all the winners and kudos to those of you mentioned in the lists above. It was great to have a competition with so many different categories.

    Pillow fights and fishing tournaments! Can’t wait to see what is next or for a repeat 😀

  22. Mike / Feb 23 2015 7:13 pm

    Just wish that we had been given some prior notice. When you have been gardening and most of the energy is already dedicated to the plants that we already had purchased, this tournament and it’s implementation seems a little like a way to get people to spend real money to get the extra energy needed to participate. Bad form.

  23. Anonymous / Feb 23 2015 7:24 pm

    I did enjoy this however can you make this so that players who do not have crowns have a chance to win. I think its unfair that players with crowns got more of a chance to win. Like I only manage to catch 30 dekios without crowns. And I went fishing all day, whenever my energy refilled. I had to wait out most of the day for that. And I had four different wizards going. Next time do this so everyone can have a better chance to win. Even if you do not have crowns. Like maybe do fishing without energy for a day only then everyone can have a fair chance to win.

  24. Robin Winters / Feb 23 2015 7:31 pm

    grate work on all of the fishing and awesome job wizard 101 for the fun times you show us all 🙂 me and my kids love it.

  25. Anonymous / Feb 23 2015 7:52 pm

  29. DianneSlipkid / Feb 24 2015 6:16 am

    How fun!!! I hope this tournament was the first of many, but why only announce it on a social media site? I only heard about the contest through Wizard 101 Central. I don’t check Facebook very often and don’t have (or want) a Twitter account. Maybe next time you could post the notice on the main sign-in screen?? The Spiral would thank you.
