    Sorry if this has been asked before. I have looked around for the answer, but I am still a bit in the dark.

    I just reactivated and I have a fisherwoman with 100 skill.

    So how do I get the +5 or +10 ps so I can gain and then go for the bigger orders for the possibility of a 120 ps? At 100 I don't get any quests for the dungeon fish, so there must be some way to get to 106?

    Or do I get bigger orders if I have a really big ship?

    I am using the points calculator on uoguide.

    Thanks!

    You dont need quests for dungeon fishes to get +5 and/or +10 powerscrolls.
    I 'just' started doing those quests on my newish fisherman and I got 4 powerscrolls yet. (3* 105 and 1* 110) That was at 110 fishing and doing 100 quests so far. (Actually done 120 quests but still only those 4 powerscrolls.) It is just about your luck with your rewards since powerscrolls are still somewhat rare.
    You get bigger orders randomly after you have done a certain amount of those quests and if your ships hold can hold the weight of those orders. Your fine with any of the HS ships. With a classical ship your stuck to small orders but even those could give you a +5. In your worst case you would need to bind a 110 out of 105's. (Actually 105's are not worth reading.)

    if all you have is a 105, it is worth reading to get a head start on skill gain to 110. But that's about all.

    Thanks for info :)

    I do have another question...
    Now I've been sitting on this snow crab quest for a while. I just don't seem to catch them. I've gone and had a browse for a bit and I read you should leave the in the water longer or wait for a second bob? Well when I do that, they always disappear even before they bobbed at all. So I am a bit confused as to when to pull up the traps. All of them when 1 bobs? Or only the one that bobs?

    I put 125 crab nets on the deck of my ship, ask the tillerman to go slow forward and drop all 125 in a row, then ask the tillerman to go back - ignoring all the bobbing that is happening while we are returning to the original spot. Once I get back there I start pulling up the crab nets. You will lose some - depends on the day how many. When you pull them up you will be overloaded but they will just be placed on the deck in a pile - empty, refill and repeat!
    Happy Crabbing!
