Feebas can only be found in one area which is Route 119, the place where you have to rescue the people from the weather institute from Team Magma/Aqua. If you’ve ever looked around on this route, you’ll see that along with the high grass, many secret base locations, and pouring rain, there’s a lot of water. This is where you can find Feebas. Here’s the catch though: he will only appear on six of the hundreds of tiles on that route. Yes. Six. Any rod will do, meaning you can use ANY rod, however its better to use a Super Rod as the only Pokémon you can get with that apart from Feebas is Carvanha, but patience is required if you want to catch this thing. Like in actual fishing in real life.
Now, if you get annoyed and feel like shuffling the spots where the Feebas are, all you need to do is change the trendy phrase in Dewford. No, it doesn’t make sense how a trend on an island that’s nowhere near the Feebas affects them. Bear in mind that they don’t take assigned spots with the trendy phrase, so if you and your friend have the same phrase and one of you finds Feebas in one location, chances are that the other person won’t find Feebas in that location.
Now, when you’re looking for Feebas, make sure you search every single tile a few times. Like 5, or something. On the tiles that it actually appears on, it’s actually pretty common. So, if you fish a tile that it appears on a few times, chances are that you’ll find the thing. Also, make some sort of pattern across the water surface. Here’s a simple diagram with nothing but text arrows telling you what I mean:

->->->-v
v-<-<-<- ->->->-v
v-<-<-<-

Quoted from Serebii.

Sapphire & Ruby: Route 119

You can catch Feebas with ANY Rod, A Feebas Tile still has the chance of catching the Normal Pokemon for the Rod used plus a 50% Chance of a Feebas. Because of this it is Recommended you fish each Tile 3-5 times.
My suggestion is to use the Old Rod, It is easier to land Pokemon with, and the non-Feebas Pokemon landed will just be weak Tentacool and Magikarp

Any rod works, Super Rod best. :P
Super Rod = High level pokemon which is hard to run away from
