    I think it's a great idea! Actually it could combine two skills if they wanted to add to the difficulty.

    Either alchemists or chefs with fishing could be an option.;)

    Alchemists using the special fish to create a vial of fishing essence (the more special fish used the higher the essence) which can enhance the Bucket O' Chum is a nice touch.

    The only chef's creation that should get tossed overboard is cookies (Easter Egg!; even if only an emote).

    The chum could be multi-quality as well with a higher fishing skill needed to use the higher quality chum.
