Princess Fish rarity

The Princess Fish must have a higher rarity than "green" because it cannot be acquired before hardmode. Perhaps lime is more accurate? It's got to be something after hardmode, and since rarity is an attribute in the code of the item itself, someone probably just misinterpreted the color on the item's tooltip. As such, I'm going to edit the page accordingly. --Macks2008 (talk) 22:15, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

The rarity in the code is 2, meaning green (just checked). Rarities are only loosely tied to stages of the game. Lihzahrd Bricks and Statues are white, for example. Equazcion (talk) 22:35, 14 Dec 2014 (UTC)
Rarities aren't even really that closely tied to, well, rarity. Rainbow bricks are probably the rarest building blocks in the game, but ranking-wise, they're the lowest you can get without being considered literally busted garbage by the game.
Fun fact of the day, I guess. Gearzein (talk) 23:18, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Eh, what do I know? I guess I'm wrong.--Macks2008 (talk) 20:04, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Catch chance?

Do all items have a variable catch chance? The Frog Leg page says its catch chance is 1:250 at 100% power and 1:500 at 50%, and I'm fairly certain I've gotten one below 50% (I was doing a LOT of fishing...), and if it truly has a variable chance, at least some other item(s) must. Is any information available about which items are so affected, and what the formula is?

New 1.3 fishes

Not sure how much are added, but i just caught a Bomb Fish earlier, which means there are new 1.3 fishes. Anyone willing to check the code for full list? FunAlways (talk) 17:26, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

Utility Fish

Should Bomb Fish and Frost Daggerfish be added? --Kingskybomber14 (talk) 03:31, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

They're already in the Other Fishing Catches table that also appears on the Fishing page, which seems a more suitable place for them considering their functionality. 03:36, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
