I'm one of those unlucky schmoes who's broken 6,000 catches in the Fjord with no dark herring. I just wanted to ask this stupid question:
Does having autoloot on or off pose any problems with catching rare fish, or BoP fish things?
Since the herring is BoE not BoP, it probably isn't even relevant, but assuming a 0.1% catch rate I'm really at the end of the statistical tail here, so I've started grasping at straws. :) I love fishing but this is starting to crush my spirit a little bit.
On the bright side, thanks everyone for reminding me to actually AH all these fish. I'm not using FishingBuddy, but BankItems tells me my alt now has 2500 snappers, 2000 herrings, 1000 salmon, 500 suckerfish, and a bunch of assorted water and crate fodder in her mailbox. :) (I spent 1 night doing herring schools, which is why the ratio is a little off there)
I'm so not looking forward to catching another Mr. Pinchy (or more...).
And while I'm here... Daggercap Bay, Caldemere Lake by Wildervar, and whatever lake is north of Skorn by Winterhoof. All viable dark herring waters, right?
-- Oh, crap. Someone asked this yesterday! It wasn't there when I planned this post, honest. It just took a while to get my password and then I forgot until today. :) Sorry.
I've had a few "no catch" bobs at the tail end of the timer bar, and those just give me a really bad feeling that they may have been the rare fish... superstition, I'm sure.
