Dredge takes fishing games to the next level with unique fishing mechanics, a vast world to explore, over 100 species of fish, and of course spooky monster fish. Plagued by unknown influences dripping from every doorstep in the ocean, the world of Dredge features mutated fish that are rarely available but sell for far more than normal fish.
If you have the Blackstone Key DLC, there is a Sign of Ruin you can equip to increase your chances of catching Aberration Fish. Even without it, you have a good chance of spotting anomalies, especially if you fish on blockages that have a special glow on them.
Adorned with a variety of human teeth, the Snag Squid is the terror among Dredge terrors. Imagine pulling up what looks like a squid and being greeted by a hundred smiling faces at once.
You can imagine Snag Squid would make the worst squid ever, full of bones and teeth that even the Tooth Fairy wouldn’t dare touch. A dentist’s nightmare in The Marrows is fishing and trawling.
Based on the Anglerfish, the Bursting Anglerfish has a Xenomorph vibe with the second mouth popping out of the first mouth. Imagine hoisting a fish you’ve hooked with your tongue. Even if you pluck your teeth into the hook, you have to be careful not to let its large set of jaws run into you.
The more I look, the more questions I start asking, such as: Which mouth is in charge? Tiny mouth is a tiny anglerfish grafted onto its host? Catch this alien fish in the deep-sea fishing zone of Stella Basin.
Imagine being so deep in the ocean that your guts are pushed out by the pressure. It swims and exists with the inside sticking to the outside. Find this existential horror in the open ocean deep sea fishing zone.
Being stuck in a world where creatures mutate into monsters is bad enough, but this fish is slowly being sucked into another unknown dimension.
Being pulled into a wormhole and being stretched and torn apart is an immensely unjust punishment for this fish, but if the world of dredge is fair, it’s worth it for this fish to be tortured like penance. What happened was even more terrifying.
Deep in the volcanic ocean, it seems that you can get a 3rd degree burn even if you are surrounded by water. A charred sunfish evokes a feeling of skin being peeled off and parts of the body being lost.
The fish exists in incredible torment, swimming in scorching water, body fragments falling off and sinking into the sea void. please reassure me.
Rapt Shark is the Joker incarnated as a fish. A mutant of the already creepy Ghost Shark, the Rapt Shark gives the impression of being trapped by catching it.
Maybe that smile tells us that something bad is coming towards us, or that we’re cursed to tackle this never-ending fishing journey. Catch this apocalypse at Devil’s Spine in the fishing grounds of .
One gnawing mouth full of teeth is enough to scare us away from any number of creatures, but Medusa Octopus takes us a step further with a complete set of eight writhing tentacles.
This eyeless beast doesn’t need much to find its prey. We can imagine that after enough time without food, each tentacle will begin to cannibalize its siblings in a fight for survival. Find this abomination in the Basin of the Stars using a Rod or Crab Pot.
If a fish can keep secrets and tease you with it, then the Cleft Mouth Shark is it. What does this shark know that we don’t?
The ragged fins and tail show that they have seen quite a few seizures and know all they need to know. Hopefully catching this shark in The Marrows will help soften the notion that the world knows things it shouldn’t know about us.
If you keep looking at it, it will be sucked more and more. The void eye aberration, mutated from the barrel eye fish, is quite the monster. Its body appears normal, but its entire head is covered with peculiar eyes that open wider and wider, as if it sucks in the presence of not only food, but also those who see it.
Even the description hints at an endless void within its eyes. It can be found using a Rod in the Stellar Basin Deep Sea Fishing Area.
The tail, which appears to be made up of human skeleton, should be the creepiest part of any fish, but the Defaced Skate manages to get past this. This is a skating mutation that resembles a stingray, but this anomaly appears to have mutated beyond the limits of fish into the human realm.
Skate’s melted face with human teeth and eyes isn’t terrifying and will terrify any fisherman who sees it. Let’s put an end to the misery.
