Earl's House Edit
To compete with Captain Jozek (who runs all the supply stores in Farovia), Earl runs his own supply store out of his house in Waterport (in-game link at http://apps.facebook.com/fishwrangler/earl).
Below is a list of equipment you can buy from Earl. Some equipment requires a certain amount of minimum points before you're able to buy them.
Oxygen Tanks Edit
Oxygen is required when scuba fishing. You can go on 60 scuba dives before having to completely refill your tanks.
Earl can refill your Oxygen Tank here at a cost of 8,000 gold.
Spear Gun Edit
The elastic-powered Spear Gun has a quick triggering system and satisfactory accuracy. This model is the most basic equipment available for scuba fishing.
The detailed specification of this pole can be found at Spear Gun.
Pneumatic Spear Upgrade Edit
The Pneumatic Spear operates on internal air that is recompressed very easily underwater. The add-on allows for top-notch accuracy to catch the rarest fish while scuba fishing.
The Pneumatic Spear Upgrade is an upgrade for the standard Spear Gun. It can be bought from Earl once the Spear Gun has reached a level of 10. Once this level is reached, there will be a new option available at Earl's house.
The detailed specification of this pole can be found at Pneumatic Spear.
Rocket Booster Edit
The Rocket Booster increases boat speed by 6 times. It only takes the very expensive, Grade A Rocket Fuel. Earl will fill the first 50% up for free.
Note: Earl needs to trust you before he is willing to sell you the rocket booster. You may need to fill up your oxygen tanks or revisit him a few times before you are able to purchase the rocket booster from him.
When you elect to purchase the Rocket Booster, Earl will ask you where he was when you met him for the first time (this information is provided to you when you first go to Waterport to meet with Earl during the Sans Culpra Quest):
- I'm not sure I can trust you yet... -Earl
- Where was I when you first came to visit me?
The possible answers are:
- At an all night bar crawl.
- At a bar crawl.
- At a bar with my mistress.

If you get the answer wrong, Earl will refuse to sell the Rocket Booster to you. You will have to wait 12 hours to try again. If you wish to avoid spending an additional 40,000 Gold when purchasing the Rocket Booster, make sure you get this question correct.
The standard cost of the Rocket Booster is 100,000 gold which includes a 50% fill up.
Grade A Rocket Fuel Edit
The Rocket Booster only takes the very expensive, Grade A Rocket Fuel which is only available from Earl's house in Waterport. The tank holds up to 100 gallons.
Earl sells this resource once the Rocket Booster has been purchased. More details can be found here.
Scuba Fishing Licence Edit
Earl can also produce authentic scuba fishing certificates...
Wranglers will receive their Scuba Fishing Certification once they complete this difficult and time consuming process. Unlike all other courses that are simply "theory" based, the Scuba Fishing Certification mandates every wrangler to have a minimum attempts at scuba fishing before receiving the certification. While preparing for the certification, you are allowed to scuba fish up to fifteen times a day. Once receiving your certificate, you will be able to scuba fish without restrictions.
Minimum requirements and costs of this licence are provided here .
Earl can build a special radar box that will unlock a land far, far away.
You must be ~10% Prodigious or higher in order to unlock the instructions.

Some equipment requires a certain amount of minimum points before you're able to buy them.

The detailed specification of this pole can be found at Cubey Incinerator.
