Struggling with this one. Have caught tons in the past, but struggling to catch for this challenge I have. Need to catch 10 and have been cycling through baits, but haven't caught one in about 30 casts.

The fishbook says worm, but that hasn't worked either.

Anybody have consistent success with a bait for Shuttles Hoppfish?

Worm or bugs. Keep casting.

Just did 15 casts with worm and 15 casts with bug and no bites. In the past two days, I've had more bites at this site by Isurus than this supposedly "easy" fish. More evidence to my claim that during challenges, the game makes the fishes you need to catch harder to hook.

I have done 138 quests and I have never felt that way.

It's just because you notice that it didn't bite for the last 30 casts because of the quest. Normally if it doesn't bite for 30 casts, you wouldn't even notice or remember.

First thing you have to change your equipment bcs Shuttless Hoppfish is very low grade fish so you need eq with no luck which is making u catch better ones. Its kinda chain, look if you have 5 fishes in one site, name it X LAKE:

X Lake

Fish A - Very fucking rare need about 100 luck
Fish B - Very rare need 75 luck
Fish C - Rare need 50 luck
Fish D - Not very rare need 25 luck
Fish E - Common need 0 luck

If you have 0 luck there is no chance to catch Fish A B or C, but you may with own luck get D and often E

If you have 50 luck Its still to small amount to get Fish A but it may bite. Not so many times you will see fish E, more often D/C/B

If you have 100 luck its nearly impossible to catch fish E and low rate for D, tossing for A is not very rare and B/C are common.

Check your luck bcs in Clam Beach Hoppfish is fish E. Then start throwing low grade pastebait or you can even throw Breadbait, it eats it well.

My fishbook in Blue Fog Mountain Range is all SSS except for 3 types (King Pirarucu, Nile Perch, Mad Goliath Tiger, all of them are sitting at SS currently) using 80~85 luck equipment.
And all I have tossed are S baits. I have caught every kinds of fish from River Prawn to Mad Goliath Tiger with 80+ luck.

The thing is, small fish like River Prawn never bite synthetic baits. So I used S-grade of its preferred type of bait such as S-Paste. (You can buy them at the bait selection screen in the fishing area if you have some in your inventory).

And over hundreds of casts, the bite distribution is rather even despite the fact that I was casting S grade baits and were using maximum luck equipment (back then).

So regardless of luck or grade of bait, small fish will continue to bite and I think it's either the psychology behind noticing or just your plain luck (not the Luck stat).

I've done pretty much everything to catch this fish for the past three days. I've downgraded my equipment, used every bait, and still no bites. I caught two Isurus in this time, but zero Hoppfish. Does that make sense to you? Probably 150 casts or so, 2 Isurus, but no Hoppfish.
