    Does Fishing skill have any affect on crab fishing at all? ie. faster to catch more crabs with higher fishing skill?

    TY


    Edit:
    replying to myself: After taking fishing skill on and off my char for crab fishing, I can very sure confirm having GM fishing does matter how fast you catch crabs. I am noticing HUGE differences!!

    Having recently obtained a 120 fishing scroll having been stuck at 110 for some time, I have certainly noticed a reduction in the time it takes me to catch a certain weight of crabs/lobsters. It doesn't appear to change the proportion of named crabs (which seems to be around half the number of regular ones), so I must conclude that the traps are more likely to make a catch.
