To find a Frilled Shark in Dredge, head to the northeast section of the map to Devil's Spine, a hot, volcanic area covered in ruins. This is where you'll find your fish.

Sail around the area, checking each bubbling spot you see until you find one that requires Volcanic fishing and has a shark-shaped fish shadow (we had luck in map coordinates N-13 and N-14, but it's random). Use your Volcanic Rod and complete the timing minigame to pull up a Frilled Shark.

This is a mutant variant of the Frilled Shark that sells for more at the Fishmonger based on freshness and length.
