    This has probably been reported elsewhere and I just can't find it. However, I just wanted to document that I've now had three fisher characters on different shards receive a message in a bottle directly in their backpack when their fishing skill was only around 70.5 or slightly above that. No serpent showed up. They were able to fish up the pre-chest loot and the chest itself for those MIBs with fishing skill of only 71.2 to 71.5. I've also had two of these fishers get just a map in their backpack while fishing skill was still only in the 60s or very low 70s, again with no serpent in sight.
