Ye Olde Fishing Vortex

At Ye Olde Fishing Vortex (also known as Underwater Fishing), each of your Neopets is allowed to cast their line and fish up an item.

Fishing Limits

You are cast your line at least once per day. There seems to be a cooldown period between successful catches, ranging from 2 hours to over 12 hours, but an exact time range is unknown.

Levels

Each time your pet fishes at the cavern, there is a chance that their fishing skill will increase by one level, and as their level increases so does the list of items they could possibly hook. You can also increase their level (up to a maximum of 3 levels) by reading them the book Fishing Made Easy.

The maximum fishing level that your pet can obtain is 500. Whenever a Neopet is abandoned or transferred, their fishing level resets back to 0. If that same Neopet returns to an account where they had accumulated levels, those levels will be reinstated. In other words, your Neopets' fishing level record is locked to your account. (Thanks to megacpfan444 for this tip!)

Prizes

Below is a list of the items you can find at the Vortex, along with the minimum confirmed Skill Level your pet must be at in order to find them. If you'd like to see the information for these items, click on the item's name or image to be taken to its page in the Item Database.

It is also possible to fish up a paint brush or a Petpet paint brush, although this is a rare occurrence.

Note that it is not possible to borrow a pet with a >80 fishing level from another player, as a Neopets' fishing level will return to 0 if you abandon or transfer them to another account.
