While "Umi" is on the field, this card is unaffected by Spell effects and cannot be targeted for attacks, but does not prevent your opponent from attacking you directly.

Stats is not high among high level monsters that require a tribute to be summoned, but the effect works well in many situations.

Lvl 48 Challenge
If you converted your legendary fisherman before this challenge, the easiest way to complete the challenge is to use the Exchange spell card to steal him from Mako.
Legendary Fisherman needs a tribute to be summoned.
Continue to keep Makos monster slots empty so that he keeps LF in his hand, then use exchange when his hand is full for better chances at stealing his card.

Summoning LF after stealing it counts towards the challenge. This is much easier than farming Mako for him

Legendary Ocean counts as "Umi" when on the field, so Legendary Fisherman would not get the attack boost from it.

Are you stupid? Legendary Fisherman is unaffected by effects when Umi is on the field so he doesn't get the boost from a Legendary Ocean and on field his level changes to 5. On hand his level is 4 because he doesn't have an effect there so you can normal summon it.
Had 2 of them and converted them for UR stones and can't complete Stage 48 now... Also grinded Mako 40 but he never drops another copy of it -.-

You don't use Exchange to earn the Fisherman. You use Exchange to take it and play it in that duel.

In the event that you only have one, you can recycle them with Tourbus.
Oh god this is so much fun with Feast of the Wild Lv5, special summon 2 lv5 warriors from your hand or grave. Plus Planet Path + Water Hazard search for much fun. Goes great with metal morph.
I hate this damn card, so inconvenient.
What's the games obsession with this shit card. I don't have one cuz I converted it and I'm stuck on level 58. I guess I could come up with some deck with autonomous action unit and exchange and ritual summons. I thought I was done with it after 48.

Because this is mako signature card. That is why. At least mako already give us this card when we unlock him before. It's our own fault if we convert it to UR.However, I'm sure you will be more headache when reach stage 59 which require you to summon perfectly ultimate great moth, the card u can only get from weevil drops.. (-_-")

Got the moth first time I ground him lol
Card is honestly terrible. Riryoku and maybe Ceal's Bow are like the only spells you might profitably avoid with this, and that hardly matters since his stats are outclassed by... Like, everything. He doesn't even get the stat boost from Umi. It doesn't interact with anything else that an Umi based deck wants to do. Not to mention that it's an utterly flavorless card. Why is the fisherman a warrior? What does being great at catching fish have to do with not being targeted by attacks? I HATE this card, and I'm pissed that I have to use it for stage 48.
