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.

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.

He's so good at fishing that he Just needs a Rod WITH a ball in It.

It's not a rod, kid. its a spear with a bait on it
if its my only card on the field, enemy can attack me directly?

Magical arm shield works to get him to drop the card
The card would be slightly better if they released Tornado Wall...
Legendary Fisherman III I hope you arrive to the game soon.

Just looked up LFIII and sweet madness, its like Neo Deadalus on a rager. D:
Never summon it if you only have 1 monster on the field, the enemy can directly attack you

It can only work if Umi is on the field. Because Umi triggers this card to be not targeted for attacks.
