Now don't get me wrong it isn't the Marayan Garayan that you caught in Matataki Village this is a different fish. First you need to get the Atla that contains the Oasis. You don't need to complete it. Then you need a poison apple. You need to cast out your line at anytime. then you should catch the Mardan Garayan. It will give your Fishing Points a big boost. (I caught a 108cm Mardan Garayan and got 229 fishing points).

PS2 | Submitted by Captain NapkinsTons of FREE Items
This is a cool little trick that's easy to do, and can give you tons of free items you'll need, but can be fairly time-consuming. This is done in Norune village. The first thing I can tell you(and this is really important in Norune) is to NEVER set up or finish Gaffer's Buggy until you're done with Norune Village. When you put it up, the mayor stops giving you items, and you'll need his items to get this to work.
As soon as you get the Hag's house finished, she will store items for you. About 60 in all, I think. The trick is to get the free items from the mayor, and then take them back to be stored. You can do this as much as you want, all the way up to 60 total items. Think about it...if you get 60 repair powders saved up, you can save a lot of money on supplies until much later in the game. This is completely worth restarting the game for, no matter where you are. Enjoy!
PS2 | Submitted by GamesRadarMaryan Garayan's Secret
When you catch Maryan Garayan go to a chest protected by a trap. Try to guess the trap. It will say "Maryan Garayan shows the right path." and when you choose the trap the trap will be flashing red and have a picture of M.G. by it. Also I'm not sure about this: He might disable the trap directly.
PS2 | Submitted by GamesRadarHow to catch the Maryan Garayan
The first thing u need is a poison apple, use that as bait and fish at the water fall in Matataki Village during the night if u r successful then u should get the Maryan Gatyan and alot of fishing points.( u might have to wait a little while)
