    Fish from further away from the exact location.

    I think, If I remember right it is 27 tiles away, never fish the same tile, move one tile right or left after your cast.

    My longest run for pre loot is 21 items.

    Hm.

    First you have to figure out where the new items are categorized. Then you have to count every item you can get in each category. My probability is rusty, so if anyone is sharper feel free to correct the following.

    Let's assume there is one item per category, except for bones/body parts. Let's assume that category has fish heads, torso, and skull. You have a 1/4 chance to hit bones/body parts, and then a 1/3 chance to get fish heads. The probability, then, is 1/12 to get fish heads, or 8.3%.

    Since every category has more than three options, you're going to hit the 25% chest a lot more often than the exact pre-loot you want. I'd imagine there's less than a 5% chance to get any exact pre-loot item you want, given one cast.

    I cant find the source of the 25% chance categorization in stratics, but in each category, there are more than 5 items:

    Message in a Bottle - UOGuide, the Ultima Online encyclopedia

    Common pre-chest loot
    4 types of footwear
    2 types of hats
    11 types of pillows
    9 types of shells
    4 types of barrel staves (2 x 2 facings)
    5 types of skulls
    8 types of body parts (4 x 2 facings)
    10 types of bones (5 x 2 facings)
    11 types of paintings
    2 globes
    1 stool
    1 candelabra
    1 unfinished barrel

    Total of 69 different items.

    Uncommon pre-chest loot:
    Chest of Drawers
    Fish Heads
    2 Oars (1 x 2 facings)
    Table Legs
    Yellow Polkadot Bikini Top

    Total of 6 items.

    So, even if they make all items to be fished up in equal rate, the chance to catch one of the new items will be 6/75 = 8%. This is the best case scenario, so stay patient, you'll eventually get the new items. Petra's advice will increase your chances greatly.

    ive done just over 800 mibs, and i have fished up about 40 of the uncommon items like table legs.

    with only 2 fish heads, 4 table legs fished up. and not one of those polkadot bikinis at all.the rest were all chests of drawers and oars. no inside loot has been much better although i think the kelp leggings,dress,bra and bow show up in chests 10 times more then getting a net or vines
