    Just for comparison's sake, I was wondering if we could share how much bait everyone has got from the Fishing Quests? As well as how many PS120s and Charbydis items... I understand people may have used some (I never have) but it could give us a rough idea of the relative rarity if each.

    So to begin, my Legendary fisherman Nemo Herringwary has over the course of his career so far earned;

    1252 Great Barracuda Bait
    1219 Yellowtail Barracuda Bait
    1136 Giant Koi Bait
    1118 Stone Crab Bait
    899 Fairy Salmon Bait
    834 Autumn Dragonfish Bait
    791 Holy Mackerel Bait
    436 Spider Crab Bait
    409 Crystal Fish Bait
    399 Fire Fish Bait
    317 Summer Dragonfish Bait
    292 Lava Fish Bait
    260 Reaper Fish Bait
    222 Blue Lobster Bait
    207 Unicorn Fish Bait
    130 Bull Fish Bait
    100 Black Marlin Bait
    100 Spring Dragonfish Bait
    100 Zombie Fish Bait
    100 Giant Samurai Fish Bait
    100 Kingfish Bait
    82 Smelly Holy Mackerel Bait
    77 Smelly Fairy Salmon Bait
    70 Blue Lobster Bait

    And two 120 Fishing Scrolls, no Charbydis items... bah! And you don't want to know how many boots and books ...!

    1662 Great Barracuda Bait
    1612 Yellowtail Barracuda Bait
    1622 Giant Koi Bait
    1837 Stone Crab Bait
    1130 Fairy Salmon Bait
    1814 Autumn Dragonfish Bait
    1514 Holy Mackerel Bait
    185 Spider Crab Bait
    437 Fire Fish Bait
    265 Crystal Fish Bait
    591 Summer Dragonfish Bait
    330 Lava Fish Bait
    416 Reaper Fish Bait
    691 Blue Lobster Bait
    265 Unicorn Fish Bait
    718 Bull Fish Bait

    400 Void Crab Bait (4*100 charges)
    100 Giant Samurai Fish Bait
    300 Blue Merlin Bait (3*100 charges)
    200 Golden Tuna Bait (2*100 charges)
    100 Kingfish bait
    100 Stonefish bait

    25 Smelly Fairy Salmon Bait
    57 Smelly Yellowtail Barracuda Bait
    22 Smelly Giant Koi Bait
    75 Smelly Bullfish Bait

    70 Extra Smelly Giant Koi Bait

    No 115. No 120. No Charbydis stuff. I might going to take a brake on EU from doing the quests. I just drydocked my ships. My new fisher on DF starts to get interesting. With around 77 fishing, shes short before doing the nice stuff. (Fishing for serpents)
    With Regards from Talismaniac (EU)

    Hmm, looking at yer smelly stuff, it seems like they be appearing at the low to medium level then? (22 uses isn't a whole lot of bait, so it wouldn't require a whole lotta fish)

    I don't think there is a PS115 in the drop tables though; I've never heard of anyone getting one at least, and I never did. I think they can only be made from 110s?

    I got one 115 from quest, another from binding 105 and 110, and need 8 more to get 120.

    My overall numbers are relatively low but nonetheless I've been rewarded as follows (current skill is 110.6):

    1.00% 60 Unicorn Fish Bait
    1.21% 72 Crystal Fish
    1.67% 100 Giant Samurai Fish
    1.67% 100 King Fish
    2.18% 130 Reaper Fish
    2.51% 150 Blue Lobster
    2.85% 170 Bull Fish
    3.26% 195 Fire Fish
    3.33% 199 Spider Crab
    3.67% 219 Lava Fish
    5.37% 321 Summer Dragonfish
    7.63% 456 Autumn Dragonfish
    8.89% 531 Fairy Salmon
    9.31% 556 Holy Mackerel
    9.32% 557 Yellowtail Cuda
    0.00% 0 Hemi Cuda ;/
    9.76% 583 Stone Crab
    13.02% 778 Great Cuda
    13.34% 797 Giant Koi

    9 Wondrous Scrolls 105
    6 Exalted Scrolls 110
    1 Mythical Scroll 115

    Roomie has gotten 2 Mythical scrolls and one Legendary scroll ~ the same distribution of baits ... yet not as many 110 & 105's, 2 junk proof hooks recently, all within about the same volume of questing as I, although - maybe less as I used to do multiple quests at same time and he prodded through with only one quest going at a time.

    80 Smelly Bull Fish bait:party:

    I would guess, that it is fully random, if a bait turns out to be smelly or extra smelly. With a very low chance ofc. I wonder, if the legendary baits can become smelly, too. (Those that always come in 100 charges and require a 200+ rating order.) I am not too shure about the extra smelly bait. I simply havent got enough of them, to make any guesses about. (Ihave not combined any of my smelly baits. What means i got 5 times rewarded with 'em out of the quests done since latest fishing publish.)
