Oak Branch QuestsEdit
It is suggested you only complete the first two Oak Branch quests and hold off on the remainder until you've unlocked other areas in the game like Icelantica. After leveling the poles and starting some of the first few quests over there, should you return to work on the later WaterPort quests. If you cast less than 30 times per day, any quest above the second could take a month or longer to complete. Even with tournament fishing to level poles, if you don't keep up to date with the quests, you'll be blocked from new addons for those poles.
As with all quests completed in Waterport, using repellants will slightly increase your chances of catching the quest fish. Boo Juice along with K9 Pheromone will eliminate the Miny Fish and Catty Fish when in use. Antifreeze Potion will work too, but is better saved for Fishertonville where the Cubey exists but the other 2 prior fish do not.

Pole Req: Level 1 Oak Branch
Unlocks: Steel Reel
Quest specific tips: Start with Loaf Chum, and use it until all the Loafy Fish are caught. Change to Generic Chum to catch any remaining Catty. If there are still some Mime Fish left, using Antifreeze Proteins in Waterport will improve your odds of attracting a Mime Fish - or you can just cast with Fish Guts Chum or Steak Chum until you catch them. An alternative strategy would be to first travel to Sans Culpra and use Generic to catch the Catty Fish, move to Fishertonville to catch the Loafy fish with Loaf, and move to Waterport to catch any remaining Mimes with Fish Guts. In either case, this quest should require less than 100 casts.
Catch Req's: 9 Catty Fish, 6 Loafy Fish, 3 Mime Fish ×1.5 when done with friend

Pole Req: Level 11 Oak Branch
Unlocks: Steel Reinforcements
Quest specific tips: Note: These tips have been updated on Dec 2014, as none of the quest fish longer have a preferred chum. Fish regularly for the Miny & Miss Miny in Waterport, hopefully your able to catch 1-2 Sea Tortoise or both of the last two fish before finishing them. If you unlocked Sans Culpra, you can also finish off any Minys left on the surface there (as only 3 fish exist). You can use K9 Pheromone and/or Antifreeze Protein for the whole quest but preferably after you finish either of the Minys as that's 35 shells per cast. Make sure you don't use any Boo Juice until after the first two fish types are caught. You can use Dojo Mojo to attract the Ninja Fish immediately or at the end if it's still not caught. If you don't have this resorce and no means to exhange for them, it's better to work on a different quest until you find it, something to trade for shells, or wait to get some attractants in a Chest.
Catch Req's: 18 Miny Fish, 10 Miss Miny Fish, 2 Sea Tortoise Fish, 1 Ninja Fish ×1.5 when done with friend

Pole Req: Level 50 Oak Branch
Unlocks: Rotisserie Chicken
Quest specific tips: It may be beneficial to not add-on to your pole when starting this quest - this adds new fish, which some believe reduces the odds of catching the fish required in this quest. Stay in WaterPort for the whole quest since none of the quest fish are in Fishertonville. Start this quest using Steak Chum until you get ALL the Vampire Fish. This may take up to 250-300 casts. Then, at this point you can start adding-on to your pole, and use your best chum: Red Love Chum, Fish Guts Chum or Steak Chum, and fish until you have caught all the Tortoise and Twigs. To finish the remaining Ninjas - use the resources##Dojo Mojo Ninja attractant and your best chum.

Poison Acorn BrownieEdit
An oozing chocolate brownie filled with acorn nuts.
Pole Req: Level 70 Oak Branch
Rewards: 2 Liquid Gold
Quest specific tips: Try using Fish Guts, the preferred chum for the Woodpecker (and likely quest "bottleneck" fish). Love chum also gives a 25% benefit for catching "top 4" fish </strike>and is the preferred chum for the Poison Oak</strike>. Liquid Gold can be harnessed to catch the remaining Poison Oak or Woodpecker. Using repellents such as Boo Juice, K9 Pheromone and Antifreeze Protein (AP) will block out 2-3 of Fairly Prolific fishes and let you catch the rarer fishes easier. This method may be costly in the long run, and won't guarantee quick success (Note: you can only use two at any time). Thus, it may be advisable to only use some, or no resources at all, according to your budget. Boo juice is best choice, blocking two fish at a cost of 10 shells. (K9 cost 15 shells, 5 cheaper than AP. AP should probably be saved for the Cubies in Fishertonville.)
Catch Req's: 25 Acorn Sea Slug Fish, 15 Blossom Fish, 10 Woodpecker Fish, 1 Poison Oak Fish ×1.5 when done with friend
