    I'm trying to macros for it. What I have works, up to a point.

    Deploy: drop trap in macro - target cursor, delay 1.0. (2 times) Repeat 6.

    This one gives me a series of 12 target cursors which I use to place the traps in a pre-determined pattern around my rowboat without moving my char


    Retrieve: target nearest object- use targeted object, delay 1.0, target next object, use targetted object, delay 1.0, target nearest object, use targeted object, delay 1.0 Repeat 7.

    This one picks up the traps, but cycles through the rowboat rope too, which is why it's much longer than the 12 traps I placed. I use it out of sight of land so that I don't get put ashore.

    Empty: drop FULL trap in macro - target self, repeat 10

    This one empties them all.

    ...

    To be honest, I've just been doing crab fishing manually (as little as possible). I think it might be my least favorite of the fishing activities, if only because it seems like REGARDLESS of the spawn rate of a given crab or lobster, if it's on my delivery list, that one type is NOT going to appear for HOURS. I might get 100+ of every other one, BUT the one I'm fishing for, even if it's not a rare one.

    :D I got so involved in trying to create a working macro to pick them up I actually over shot the quantity of crusty lobsters I was fishing for.

    I've found that fishing different areas helps. When I want red bellied bream on Europa, the place to fish is Buccs Den, when I want Crusty Lobsters I go to Vesper.

    Also, little things amuse me, Pinco's sound addition to the pots being filled makes me smile.
    I've added an emote 'yawn' to the end of my main fishing macro that tells me when it's finished too. Saves me sitting there thinking 'is it finished or am I lagging?'

    Next question: :D
    I made these macros on my Europa char. I'd like to have them on my Siege char, is it possible to copy just those 3 macros without messing up the other macros that character has? Or would I be better just re-creating them on that char?

    yes it is possible to do! you need to go to C:\Users\username\Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\accountname\shard name
    and select the character to copy from and open in something like notepad

    then find the section that will look like this for your macro

    UserAction type="Macro" id="3" iconId="0" name="Macro3" repeatEnabled="true" repeatCount="10" binding="">
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="3.99" />
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="4.03" />
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="4.03" />
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="4.03" />
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="4.03" />
    <UserAction type="CastSpell" id="106" iconId="106" targetType="Self" />
    <UserAction type="Delay" id="0" iconId="623" targetType="Current" delay="4.03" />
    /UserAction>")

    copy this making sure it starts and end with useraction this can be several lines long i did not post my full macro here as i would have to edit each line to make it show here

    then go into your other character to copy to

    find the same section and past it in

    also note: i change the macro id # and macro# to one that i currently do not have for that character

    that should do it

    and always make sure and back up the files before you make any changes
