Well, I've now caught Every fish! And no, there is no reward of any kind. Now that I've got them all, here's the tips I can give you guys for getting them all!

A word of advice, "Boss fish" seem to only spawn if you've done at least one "fishing session" and caught all or almost all of the fish during that session. Doing more sessions may increase the spawn rates, but this is all unconfirmed at the moment.

For this reason, it is advisable to spend the first day or two catching as many fish as possible. Then spend the third day entering and exiting the fishing hole until the rare fish you're looking for spawns.

If you need money, you should always grab the 2 silver rupees in Clock Town (The first is in the Bomber's hideout, to the left along the canal. You'll need an explosive of any kind to break the wall. Watch out for the Skulltula. The other is along the Rooftops in East Clocktown, all the way to the south end. )

With the savage shark, another possible spawn point for it is back in the alcove underneath the waterfall to the west. Also, for money farming, my preferred method was heading to ikana castle and killing the redeads there. Equipping a garo's/captains/gibdo mask makes then dance and they won't attack, and then all you have to do is wave light from the mirror shield over them to 1HKO them. They spawn 4 at a time and each one drops either 15 or 20 rupees, and they respawn as soon as you go in and out through any door.

But does the Shark spawn there? I've seen it swim over there after spawning in the middle, but I've never seen it start over there during the dozens of times I kept running in to check the fish.

I thought about the ReDead thing, but it seems faster to do bubbles. When you fly to Ikana Canyon at night, there'll be two Bubbles right there. and the plants you can cut near the Owl Statue, along the riverbed, have arrows and magic in them. So you can Light Arrow the first, get it's purple rupee, then run to the other bubble, do the same, and the first will respawn in seconds.
