What I usually do is go through the lake and harpoon kill any that are 1.4x or less. Then I set traps and punch one of them, it'll grab the aggro from the others. Now you have 5 angry fish coming at you and your line of baskets.
The moment one of them is within range, just grab them in the basket line.
Wearing flak or riot gear is suggested but not necessary since 80% of the lake fish are dead and the remaining 20% won't deal too much damage
If you go to a certain spot on ragnorok (i forgot what its called) but its next to the canyon the spinos spawn in. You can see these them jump out of the water and try to swim up the waterfall i just think thats a cool detail its the onl time they can get out of the water without instantly dying
Tamable using fish baskets from aberration. They seem to flee from the baskets once placed. It is a good strategy to pen then in with fence foundations and walls, or kite them to a pen. Place your basket on the other side of the wall and catch.
You don't need to build a pen to tame, I just tamed my first thanks to the tips on here. Just wait and check the traps that have salmon near and when the basket says pick with salmon (words to that effect) pick it up and you've tamed a salmon! Thank you 😘
I see the big ones frequently, and I recommend you catch it with a fishing rod. The bigger it is the better the rewards. I got a weapon blueprint once, the piranhas can be decent too sometimes but, salmon are way better. Well, usually they are, it's best to fish for them that to kill them regularly. Hope this helps.
Under appreciated. Super easy to find, and drops PRIME FISH. Prime fish is almost as good as regular prime meat, and WAY better than regular meat. Use a sickle to get tons of prime fish. Super useful for taming carnivores if you don’t have the kibble
