[Fishing] Best way to get Message in Bottle

    I have a GM fisher, and out of probably 20+ hours spent fishing, I have only ever gotten one Message in a Bottle. Am I doing something wrong? I would really like to do more of these, but I just cant seem to fish them up. Any tricks?

    20 hours and 1 ????

    Humm are you fishing in Deep water. I have spent prob 12 hours fishing while sitting here watching the boob toob over the past few weeks and have gotten over 20 MIBs. Of course non of them had a ASOS in them :gee:

    Anyhow i just sail slow forward and cast while sailing. Stop, kill, loot serpeants when they pop up.

    I am hording the ASOS I do get in hopes of a future bless from the creators in their items.

    But I stay in DEEP water the whole time.

  3. tell the tillerman to go slow forward that way any serpents you fish won't get lost by the boat speed.
