    Ya...With GM fishing, I used all ten (10) of the bait and never got any of the fish it was intended for.

    I think you need 120 fishing to be able to fish those fish up.

    I suppose it depends on the fish the bait is for ...
    - some require fishing above GM
    - those are usually location bound
    You can use the best bait for great barracudas for example, but those are only fished up in fel.
