    Ahoy

    I've been working my fisher up over the past few weeks. He is at 99 now after much effort and many long hours at sea.

    The primary reason I want a fisher is to get nets. However since breaking 80 I have pulled up only 3 special nets, and all of these were quite soon after breaking 80. On the other hand I have over 20 pearls so far, and even more T-maps.

    Is there a trick to getting the nets or are they just the rarest of all fishing loot?

    you'll at least double your number of nets by doing all the normal SOS. I get a net in about a quarter to a third of the chests, and I see colored special nets more often from the chest, than from fishing.

    Looks like it may have been just a drought. I pulled another 5 nets since the original post and have finally GM'd.

    Phew :)
