[Fishing] Am I the only one fishing a LOT more Big Fish than before ?

    I am trying to steal time to my real life to build up again my stock of fish which got looted a couple of weeks ago from my ship Hold.

    I noticed, that now after the latest patch I am fishing up a lot more of Big Fish than I did before. Am I the only one or was something changed to fishing to cause this ?

    Personally, as I am working to build up my stock again, I find this annoying as it overweights me fast often, I need to cut them up into steaks and all that works against fishing what I need for the Quests. I wished we had a switch like for mining where one can set up whether to mine ore or stone or both..... When building up stock I could set the switch to only let me catch the fish I need for my stock rather than a bunch of other stuff which only slows down the rebuilding of my stock.

    I had forgotten how slow fishing is...... in several hours of fishing I was only able to fish up 30 of each of the 18 types of Deep Sea Water fish..... To reach back the 500-700 of each that I had it will be a loooooooooooooong time and a lot of fishing which will prevent me to play other areas of the game since I manual fish and do not script fish.

    I haven't even had the time to check out the new Quests because of lack of time......
