Help settin up a macro with fishing in the EC

    Trying to figure out how to get a fishing macro set up like the classic was.... just one that uses the fishing pole and than targets the area. Is there such a thing in the EC? Kind of a pita having to do all that extra clicking when I`m used to one click and "plop"

    I know there is a "target by resource" for mining and such but haven`t figured out how to do it fishing.

    I use EC and yes, it's very nice for mining. Not quite as good for fishing, but should be as easy as 2 clicks.

    Under create macro, simply drag your fishing pole into the square. Then right click the pole and select the cursor setting - don't know if any of the others might work. I've been using the cursor setting. That's it.

    This will work for *any* fishing pole you have in your hands - unless it is made of a special wood. I had been using regular wooden poles and anytime one would wear out, I would just grab another and keep on fishin' - no resetting needed on the macro. But when I switched over to frostwood poles, I did have to go in and clear out the old wooden pole and drop in the frostwood one instead.

    I use a Nostromo n52 keypad, so when I fish it's just hitting one key with the left hand and then one click with my mouse to fish.
