good/unchanged/ugly crab fishing (new patch)

    Here is the good: 1: seems that crab fishing remain undepleatable. I never received the "crabs are not biting message" despite having 11 pots arrayed around my rowboat at all times long enough to catch about 200 crabs/lobsters (The patch notes leave a lot to be desired about this subject. Is english not the native language for whoever writes them?) 2: Pot loss is greatly reduced. (I never lost a pot to the "bob bob" insta sink. However you still occasionally have one sink for no apparent reason).

    Unchanged: The distribution of named to un-named remained about the same based upon a sample size of 200 or so.

    Now the BAD: You NEVER get more than one crab or lobster per pot. It also "seemed" that the rate at which the pots became full was slower. (i.e. the number of pots that filled at the 40 second time from placement was lower it seemed) Since this was subjective, it may be incorrect.
