A Fishin' Boo from Super Princess Peach.
|First appearance||Super Mario World (1990)|
|Latest appearance||Super Mario Run (2017)|
Fishing Boos (also spelt Fishin' Boo), are the spirits of Fishin' Lakitu found in Super Mario World, Super Princess Peach, and Super Mario Run. They carry a fishing rod and ride a Lakitu's Cloud, much like the living variety. However, instead of a 1-Up Mushroom, Fishin' Boos carry a blue flame and follow Mario or Luigi in a way that makes it hard for them to Jump. A Fishin' Boo has the same immunities as a normal Boo and therefore cannot be jumped on.
Fishing Boos also make an appearance in Super Princess Peach, and a calmer variety called Calm Fishin' Boo also appears. Both types reside in Shriek Mansion on Vibe Island, and only Rage can defeat them.
A "Fishin' Boo" appears in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story and Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey in Bowser's level up screen. However, it was actually a Boo with a fishing rod and not an undead Lakitu.
