A wobbegong fishing spot will yield 100 raw wobbegongs before depleting for the day. When a wobbegong fishing spot is depleted, a filterable message reads: The fishing spot has been exhausted for today. The wobbegongs are wobbegone.
Wobbegongs in the real world are bottom dwelling sharks, as opposed to their in-game model, which resembles a mackerel shark. The examine text refers to the barbels on the sides of the wobbegong's head.
Wobbegongs, along with tarpons, seerfish, and sillagos are the first fish to be visible in fishing spots prior to being caught.
Wobbegongs can be spotted near the dock on Whale's Maw (simply labelled as "Sharks"), but cannot be caught. Their examine text is "Doo doo duh dee doo (Wobbegong). Doo doo duh dee doo (Wobbegong).", a reference to the song "Mah Nà Mah Nà".
When fishing for wobbegongs, the player is shown using a standard fishing rod and animation, regardless of currently equipped fishing equipment or any selected animation overrides.
There used to be a glitch where a player could catch an infinite amount of wobbegongs from one spot, this was achievable by using the consume option on the shark outfit. A player wouldn't receive items, but they would still be able to gain experience. This was fixed in the second Arc batch.
