*The [[Mooching]] key item will extend the time that the fish will stay on the hook when a live bait ([[Drill Calamary]] or [[Dwarf Pugil]]) is used. Until you get this key item, you may wish to simply stockpile or discard any EX bait you get, since there are alternatives that can be used that will work just as well without the key item.

*The [[Penguin Ring]] is recommended to be able to more easily weaken the more stubborn [[Gugrusaurus]] and [[Lik]]. This ring is considerably harder to obtain than the other but some [[Gugrusaurus]] and [[Lik]] can still be caught without it. If not using one of the EX baits, it is also recommended to use an [[Albatross Ring]] at the same time to allow yourself enough time to land the catch.
*[[Lu Shang's Fishing Rod]] is highly recommended, possibly even required, to be able to catch any of the fish involved in this quest on even a remotely consistent basis. All of them except for [[Sea Zombie]] are still capable of breaking the rod/line at a high rate, though.

*You will break your rod a lot trying to catch these fish, please consider either raising woodworking or bringing a woodworking mule along for repairs. Woodworking skill level of 68+ can repair a [[Broken Lu Shang's Rod]] but you can possibly use up an entire stack of crystals or more per repair. Suggested a skill level of 74+ for a better success rate. Please also be aware that you will lose your rod if you are repairing it when the Ferry docks, if a monster attacks you, or if someone casts a spell or song on you during your synth.

*Some have had to turn in over 1000 fish for an item while others have gotten it after as little as 10 fish. Current estimates as well as tracking here on wiki have put results of both [[Opal Silk]] and [[Saber Shoot]] at about 1% drop rate each.
 
;Suggestion:
 
Both fish can easily snap a [[Lu Shang's Fishing Rod]]. Therefore it is a good idea to level [[Woodworking]] to a minimum of 69 in order to repair your rod without having to leave your fishing location.
 
 
By using an [[Albatross Ring|Albatross Ring]] and a [[Penguin Ring|Penguin Ring]] you can completely skip the phase where you catch [[Sea Zombie]] and [[Cave Cherax]] for EX baits, plus skip the [[Mooching]] key item, which significantly reduces the time it takes to complete the quest (by months or even years). Instead the suggested way of obtaining each item is as follows:
 
*[[Lik]]: Bring 20 or so [[Minnow]] lures and a mostly empty inventory to the Leremieu Lagoon in [[Lufaise Meadows]], use the rings and fish away. You can catch up to around 30 [[Lik]] each day this way.
 
*[[Gugrusaurus]]: Bring 15 or so stacks of [[Meatball]]s and a mostly empty inventory to the [[Open sea route to Al Zahbi|Al Zahbi]] and [[Open sea route to Mhaura|Mhaura]] ferries, use the rings and fish away. You can catch up to around 25 [[Gugrusaurus]] each day this way.
 
This easily doubles the speed at which you obtain [[Lik]] and far far more than that for [[Gugrusaurus]] as you don't have to catch the pirate ferry. However, even with this faster route expect to spend up to a month fishing 4-5 hours every day if bad luck strikes. Some have had to turn in over 500 fish for an item while others have gotten it after 50 fish have been caught, it seems to even out somewhere around 200 fish for each item although the sample set is far too small to give a proper estimate.
 
 
(**Note: One fisherman on Lakshmi server was known to have taken over 1000 fish to obtain one of the items and almost 800 fish for the other, so be cautious when starting this quest as if bad luck hits it can take over your life)
 
 
(***Note: A fisherman on Leviathan server turned in over 1400 liks and over 800 gugrusauruses before getting each respective key item)
