I've been fishing for weeks, and just finally GM'd my fishing skill on siege, I have hundreds if not thousands of all the other fish, and probably a few hundred of all the lobsters/crabs. ...except the freds, I have 2, I know the exact spot I got them (and the ONLY spot I've gotten them) and I get 1 every few hours and hundreds of traps. Now to add insult to injury, I decided before to hold off on doing fishmonger quests until i had a stock of fish. The new ships are ridiculously expensive to own and maintain on siege so I can't really leave it out at sea for too long lest it be scuttled when I return. I've now accepted 3 quests....all 3 for 10 freds. Whoever programmed the fishmonger quest system is one evil *******.
