    where are you fishing? at 65 you need to be moving into deep water. If you don't have a boat try off Magincia dock

    Originally - it was just shallow vs. deepwater for skill gains. Now there seems to be a progression from shore out to deepest water. Grab a Ball of Knowledge from the quest in Ter-Mur (It's easy) and use it to find the depth of water that is best for your skill level.

    There's a reason I suggested Magincia dock. The water there is of varying depth. You can gain there when you can't gain from other docks.
    Here's a link for the quest you've been told about to gain a ball of knowledge http://uo2.stratics.com/questing/ortlem-the-mystic
