 -Once all three are caught, show them off to the Old Warfarer and he will give you the Big Catch Lure. Now Link will be able to catch a rusty swordfish. Return to the waters and fish around until you have caught a swordfish. These guys are huge and will take some time to find one. Show this fish off to the Old Wayfarer and he will talk about a rare legendary fish, Neptoona.

 -Now when Link is sailing, a large swordfish symbol will periodically appear in the water. Sail on over and use your fishing rod.
