Man I can catch the Bothriolepis for nothing.. I always fish 90 ft out.. I tried rainbow and green/red oriental and for 5 days I cant catch that fish.. I mean 5 real days not game days.. I read everything everyone said about it but I just cant catch it.. Lol.. this fish hates me!!! haha

This is my last S-rank at Kerikil. I caught one on my way to champion but it was only a D. I am trying the lure method now. Has anyone been successful using the lure on the LEFT grassy area? I may give that a try as my first Both was caught with Rainbow on the left one. Does anyone know the significance of the swan there on the right one? Is he the 90ft marker to get your bearings! LOL! Seems real close to me!

I am still being more successful with the upstream (left) grassy marsh. Still trying for S! I have caught 7 in about a week of game fishing - caught 2 As in one day! Lure is not working so well for me. Hopefully the S is not too long now bit at least it is a 'ranking' location for the next 2 weeks! LOL!

I don't know if this was confirmed already, but I actually saw the Bothriolepis in the water in front of the southern grassy marsh (to the left of the goose). It disappeared right after I saw it, but there was no mistaking it. I still need to S-rank it too, but I'm working on non-legendary fish right now.

Absolutely correct sdw! I have seen it there too. But I was not able to catch one there. I caught all of mine in the Northern (upstream) grassy location about 87-90 ft out. I did get my S yesterday (YAY!!!) after about 2 weeks of in game days! I caught a total of 9 to get the S!

Try casting a small or medium rod there. sometmes the fish just resurfaces after a while, and it bites. (caught my 15th alligatr gar like that. LOL)

Bothriolepis is my last fish and I've been alternating between the upstream and downstream grassy marshes, but based on what everyone's saying here I'll stick with the upstream marsh.

I caught mine in the downstream marsh on Rainbow bait.. Did not take long.. I saw it right in the middle part of the weeds.. Threw there and got it... Just left of the swan or goose.. Trust me you will get it there!!!

Seems you have better luck if you see it first. That happened to me too. It also seems to appear in the middle of those weeds. seen it several times when I was working on my S rank there. I actually had better luck with the S on the upstream weeds but didn't 'see' the fish nearly as often there.
