Fishing In the High Seas
Petra Fyde, October 2010

Fishing takes on a new dimension in the High Seas Booster. Quests can be taken from fishmongers on town docks. Common, plain ‘fish’ are still caught by training fishermen, though with lessening frequency, up to approximately 80 skill. Unnamed crabs and lobsters can also be caught at low levels.

Inshore fish can be caught in shallow water, or deeper water close to the shoreline. Lobster pots must be at least 5 tiles from shore.

Ceramic mugs of bait for the rare fish can be obtained as quest rewards from fishmongers. The  number of bait in the mug varies and appears to increase as the character gains fishing knowledge. Many rare fish can be baked in pies by cooks.
