Be really care when knocking these things out from a distance! Unfortunately they don't look knocked out when they are so continuing to shoot darts at them can be an easy an unfortunate mistake to make.
- Main use for this tame is using the Angler as a "lure" for other anglers kill anglers for their gel. The gel is the longest burning fuel in the game at approx. 6 minutes per 1 gel
- secondly use is a light source underwater
The best place to tame them is on Eldritch Isles in crystal isles, they spawn inside those water bubbles making it easy to shoot darts or even shocking tranq darts on them from the outside of the bubbles. Watch out for the piranas there because once tamed they will just eat your newly tamed Angler.
Use a high damage crossbow to avoid accidently killing the angler. If you dont have such a crossbow its highly advised to use tranq darts: however you need to lure the angler into a water cave and shooting it within as longneck rifles cant be use in water. Good luck
I would recommend taming a Basilosaurus first because they are not affected by shocks from eels and easy way to get bio toxin then you can scout one out. Best bet use harpoon gun with tranq spears to not kill. Spend a little time on icebergs gathering kairuku eggs and your all set.
