Did the fish come with the handle and chain?
If you really want to start dealing more than the normal 6 icons, you can give this a try. I wouldn't recommend it in 2-player fights though, as the icons are too easily blocked.

Alternatives: Von Roo Dice is also cheap and does slightly better icons. Unstable Slime will give you a 7 constant.

Defenses: Leaf Shield and Shiny Shoal Shell Shield shut this down nicely.

7 / 10

Power: 2/3

About 7-9 icons is very good for the price.

Price: 3/3

It's nicely low for an around 7 iconer; it would make a nice starting to low intermediate battle weapon.

Usefulness: 1/3

Those icons are very commonly blocked by many shields, particularly the Leaf Shield, which is soo commonly used.

Other: 1/1

You're smacking your opponent with a heavy fish. What's not to like? Also, it's from underwater fishing, so the price sure isn't going to skyrocket.

Summary: A nice weapon overall.
