Blow Up Fishing Holes At Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond

In Chapter 2 the fishing mechanic was introduced, allowing players to fish for weapons as well as Fish which can grant health and shield, as well as various other abilities such as being able to Rift or run faster.

Dotted around the map in most bodies of water are Fishing Holes, these randomly generate in a map and are spots that players can fish in.

Fishing Holes can also be blown up by using an explosive weapon such as a Grenade or Rocket Launcher.

Since there is no water in the location itself for Sharky Shell and Sweaty Sands, the challenge refers to the water surrounding it.

For Sharky Shell this is the water around the landmark, while Sweaty Sands is referring to the water where the beach is on the north side.

Flopper Pond is just south of Sweaty Sands and is a grey house with a pond in front of it.
