    Double click it and target the fishing pole you want to use. Once applied, it's good for 50 casts. I would use it in an area where you really want to make it count, like a dungeon for example.

    If you bait the hook once it is on the pole, your bait seems to negate the junk proof factor. Big bummer.

    You're quite welcome Nukeworker. :) And Nails, I didn't realize this about the bait. It's a bummer, but then bait never seems to work for me anyway.....

    I use the shoe BODs. Never fished up shoes using bait on a junk proof pole. With how hard it is to pull rares yet to tell if the reverse is not true. Does a junk proof pole treat bait bonus as bothersom fished extra like footwear?
