*IMPORTANT* - The mount will not drop if it is not your first kill of the day. Killing Hirukon when someone else triggers him, will lockout looting the mount until next reset. So if you obtain the Lure, don't use it until the next day if you've already killed Hirukon that day.

496 casts to get Strange Goop for me.
I just fished up the Strange Goop in 549 casts.
The alternative option is to simply buy all of the items which are Strange Goop, Pungent Blobfish, Flipper Fish, and Coilclutch Vine from the Auction House.
Be careful as I did not see a pool of fish when using my lure and the mount rare was present. I created a ticket and was told that “sometimes it takes one or two attempts” and they did not want to replace the item but encouraged me to try again. :(
I just did this in a raid group, with 40 people around it's very hard to see the pool, so ask people to move away.
When they moved I saw the pool and got Hirukon to the surface.
is the lure a one time use?

I wanted to confirm from my own personal experience that I killed Hirukon 3 times while fishing for the Strange Goop. I acquired the goop and then made the lure.. used the lure on a monday before sleeping just to get the lure for free the next day from Vashj and to give everyone else a chance. I GOT the mount on my 4th kill of the day but the first using my OWN lure.
684 casts fishing level from 0-200 all in one sitting but walked away with STANGE GOOP.
I was able to summon the boss more then once on different shards after applying the buff which lasts for 15 minutes.
After the weekly reset, Vashj does not offer me the lure again. Seems like the lure truly is until you get the mount, which is silly considering it's 100% if you use the lure.
This has been fixed! You can now talk to her to receive a new one every week.
I just had it confirmed by a GM that it is a known bug and we are supposed to get a lure after each reset. They are looking into it and it will hopefully be resolved soon!
A Game Master resolved your ticket, and left the following response:
Hey there ----!
I am Game Master Ingrothar and I hope you're well today.
I'm sorry it's taken so long to get back to you, we're very busy at the moment and we're trying to answer as fast as possible.
We have had reports of people not getting their second lure, its something that is currently being looked into, and hopefully will be fixed soon! Sadly though we can't actually give out lures, because it could break if she gets fixed.
But we are aware of this and are working on it.
Best regards and have many great adventures!
If you continue to experience issues, you can reopen this ticket. If you have a new or separate issue, please submit a new ticket.
Make sure you complete our survey to let us know how we did.
I found my second strange goop, after 12 casts. I have 200 SL fishing+39 skill pts from fishing gear at the time. Same way I found my first goop, with 48 casts. I'm starting to believe drop chance improves depending on your fishing skill. Or I've used up my RNG for the rest of the year.
I also opened a ticket about this and just got this response.
Game Master Ixzal here and to clarify, Baroness Vashj does not provide a new Aurelid Lure after you have already obtained the mount.
If you have any suggestions or feedback about this, definitely post on the WoW forums to let the Devs know:
So I guess it may be one time thing. which if thats accurate feels horrible for those that also want tmog from teh rare.
once I make the lure do I have to get all the mats again to make it or does she just give it you
Just logged on after server reset on US-Area 52 on 3/29/2022 and Vashj gave me another lure. The bug appears to have been fixed.
So this was strange. When I finished my lure it happened someone summoned the rare just before me. Got the mount. Then I wanted to use my own lure next day so I get rep from the rare. There were no schools of fish visible and I was fishing for 15min and it did not get summoned. I have no idea why this happened. This was a very particular set of events so no idea if anyone else had this happen to them. I might ask a GM about it.
EDIT: After contacting the GM I was informed it was indeed a bug and to report thru a bug report.
Quick tip, you can summon Hirukon as many times as you want while the buff is applied. Just realm jump by joining groups in the LFG tool. Managed to do it 10 times with issues.
As of 4/4/22 you can get the lure weekly again.

Tried using the Recover lost items function, but it didn’t show.
Vashj is still refusing to give me another lure. It's been close to two months since I fished up the goop, got the lure and summoned the rare. Others seem to be able to get a lure once per week, I've never been able to do so.
This week was the first week I could not get a lure. I realized that I had the lure in my bags on Monday night, so I fished up Hirukon before logging out. I logged in on Tuesday after the reset, and had a couple minutes left on the buff. I put in a ticket saying that I was unable to get a lure (and I thought having the buff active during reset could be the cause). After some automated replies, I got an actual GM, and they confirmed that the buff does prevent you from getting a new lure. Normally this would not be a problem for me, as I usually fish Hirukon up during the weekend to give people a shot at the mount. I forgot about it last week until Monday night. So don't have the buff active going into the reset!
Why on EARTH would devs put two of the three locations where new toons would have to run through the unlocks with no skip. Could have easily been placed in already accessible lands. Disgruntled.
