Default Does Fishing Suck?

So I have this iksar, and I wanted to train up baking. It appears that the best way is to bake fresh fish recipes. Come to realize no one sells fish in cabilis, so I resorted to learning how to fish. My skill is now at 100, the cap I think is 200, so I should now be a somewhat proficient fisherman. Right? Right?

To date at 100 skill, I have caught a grand total of 6 fresh fish, about 30 fish scales, dozens of rusty daggers and soggy shoes... and a few fetid varieties of fish which are useless.

I thought the purpose of fishing was to catch fish. At what point do I reliably start bringing in the loads of fresh fish? Or does the fishing skill just suck for catching fish and is a waste of time...

Fishing always sucks, even if its maxed

I can bring you stacks of fresh fish, takes less than a minute with a firepot bound char

There is a lot of not classic when it comes to fishing on p99, sadly.

Why do you fish?

If you want a particular item, it's likely only fishable in 1 zone.

If you just want to pass the time, it doesn't matter what ya catch [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

I want to catch fresh fish for baking, but the way it works makes it unreasonable as a source of fresh fish. They should fix that.

Like a lot of things. Kill mobs for money, then buy it with money.
