    ok so I went from 50 to 71.5 fishing on dot island and then it slowed down after reading threads here on what to do at 70 fishing i went to yew ran west launched my boat sailed west and found sever line crossed it came back over it stated sail slow forward north NO gains the only time i get a gain is on the way out to the sever line what i,m i doing wrong ?
  2. nothing I can see, except give it time, gains are not going to pour from a bucket, more like drips from a slow leak. Good luck with your training.
  3. Patience is key! Fish for an hour or two a day. Sometimes you'll gain many, sometimes you'll gain none but be thankful you don't have to gain to legendary. :)

    It'd actually be cool if they'd take it up to 120, and give us some new things to fish up that might have a little better loot.

    I don`t know if its true or not but I understood there was varying depths the further you get from the server line. If your 70ish try to go out from the line maybe 5 or 6 tiles.I think your in deep water after 11 or 12. I mean you can be on a boat right on the line at 0 skill and gain. At 70ish being right on the line would strike me as the same as standing on shore casting 3 feet out.I moved away from the line but staying within the shallow water mark until 80. Worked great for me.
