Sigh, this is the deathblow for fishing as a serious profession. Other than fishing from the Dalaran fountain, there is no longer any need at all to level fishing skill nor collect +fishing items (other than for show).
Awesome. Have to go and do this one.

what're the consolation prizes is what I wanna know.liek i haz a chans @ purty ring durr-hurr >:|
This is great and all, but Blizzard obviously forgot about the fact that many people don't have the best computers out there. So, even if they DO catch the shark first, they will lose when they teleport to Dala(gg)ran and have to wait for an eternity for their computer to load. Why didn't they put the quest-giver somewhere near Kalu'ak?
i get off work just as this is going to be starting. By the time I get home, someone will have caught the shark. Great, Blizz. Give me yet another reason to hate you....
the consolation prize is the same bag of fishing treasures you get when you do the daily. This gives you a chance at a crab pet, various fishing rods, a chest with epic cut and uncut gems, the five ring, and vendor trash that goes for up to 100g. Sorry I can't link all these lovely things, but maybe it will give you incentive enough to look up the bag and drool over them. Of course, most of the people interested in this new fishing contest have probably been getting those bags over and over since November.
This all looks great.Can't wait for that Heirloom ring.(Has the Salty title and capped out fishing -->)
"I love fishing, I really do. But I loathe the fishing contest in Stranglethorn. It has this magical ability to bring out the jerk in people. That thing is the whole reason I'll never get the Salty title. And now they're adding a second one? It's to taunt me, I swear."I got my Stranglethorn Achievement... on the first try. Plus I caught one of those rare bastards to turn in for (I don't remember).
hope they change where the boots teleport you. Really makes me mad that they change the fishing achievement so people who did Bloodsail Admiral can get it, only to be teleported into a place where they get ROFLSTOMPED by the bruisers.
