How to Blow up Fishing Holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond | Fortnite Chapter 2 |Season 5

Blowing up Nemo!

Most of Week 6 challenges revolve around fishing and explosions. It's a weird combination but not unheard of!

How to Blow up Fishing Holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond

To Blow up Fishing Holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond, you must head to one of these three locations and blow up fishing holes on the water. It's easy to tell where you have to blow up because schools of fish are in one area, and a ripple appears on the water above.

There are multiple ways to do this; you can throw a grenade, fire an RPG, or use anything that explodes to do this quest. However, the easiest way to complete it is by using a motorboat and using the weaponry to explode the fishing holes!

Sharky Shell is located north of Coral Castle, and head into the hideout inside the Shark's head to find a motorboat. Drive onto the water, and fire at three fishing holes that appear just more or less just outside of the Sharky Shell Shark hideout!

Sweaty Sands is located to the south of Coral Castle. The easiest way is once again using a motorboat from the east beach of Coral Castle, and when you are near water, motorboats are always guaranteed to spawn. Once you have a motorboat, head south to Sweaty Sands and blow up the schools of fish in their fishing holes. Though, as Sweaty Sands as a pier, you can use grenades and the like to blow these up too!

Flopper Pond is to the northeast of Holly Hedge and southwest of Salty Tower. It's a tiny pond that is more or less impossible not to see the fishing holes that you need to blow up. Sadly you can't use a motorboat here, so you have to resort to explosions, grenades, rocket launchers!

Remember, you only need to blow up three of these fishing holes! Once you've done that, the challenge is completed!

About the Author

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
