------------------------
Tips
Using the  fishing rods are a great way to catch had to acquire jewelry. Use a team to fish with the 2nd boat doing the fishing, the lead boat follows the fish with out canceling the attempt.


Only deep sea rod w/ high lvl bait in senior shoals will catch lobster and they dont come very often

When caught in a storm or when fishing failed I had to re-bait the hook.  If I stopped fishing because I was out of range, I did not have to re-bait, I just clicked the rod again.

The most important thing
Many people are concerned about whether the fishing skill level can affect the success rate or not.
The answer is yes. The higher your fishing skill level, the higher your success rate.
Level 1 Fishing Skill has 40% success rate, but what if you have level 100 Fishing skill? No fail I guess.

It seemed that on average you had about 3-6 seconds to recognize the shoal stopped and got fishing on it. If you are too slow the shoal will start to drift away on you before you can collect. To speed things up I pre-loaded the rod ( right click bait and click rod ), put the fishing rod in the tool bar on F1, once I recognized the shoal had stopped I sailed to it, mouse selected it and used F1 key.

Durability
Regardless the level of your fish rod, all new rods have 100 durability. They cannot be repaired. Each attempt of fishing will reduce durability by 1, no matter if you fail or succeed. When the durability reaches 0, the rod cannot be used anymore.


Where to get rod or bait?
Item mall http://vc.igg.com/mall/item_search.php?key=fish&x=48&y=9

Where are The Fishing shoals located? and what are their levels?
there are 3 levels of Shoals: Low Level, Junior, and Senior.
See Below for locations.

Compiled by Eleftheria
2/10/2011

My personal experience/ observations:

Low level shoal (1 Navigation fishing rod w/ senior bait) will only give:
*note "Rod"  would not work on low level shoal with senior bait.
Deep-sea Swordfish
Deep-sea tuna
Deep-sea salmon
Deep-sea eel (only got 1)
Anchovy
Sardine
Cod
Herring
Salmon

Shoals disappear after 8-10 successful fishing attempts.

Using Junior shoals near Nagasaki, lvl 85 fishing skill, lvl 2 rod with lvl 3 bait.
40 successful out of 68 collection attempts the results were;

normal fish product ( quest items )
   9 sardine (lvl 2)   
   8 cod  (lvl 3)
   2 herring (lvl 4)

deep sea fish product ( right clicking the item can give you jeweleries, random game item or the flesh of said fish which is a quest item ).
   15 Deep sea Tuna
   6  Deep sea Salmon
ended up with 14 Tuna flesh, 5 Salmon flesh, one High Class Chine and 1 Ring of Tiger ( lvl 7 pirate ring )

You lose your bait if the shoal drifts away from you and there will be no collection attempt however,  you only lose one durability on your rod with a successful collection try. Buy extra bait it wont go to waste. You are unable to move your ship once you start fishing.
   There is a 30 second timer that must count down for a succesful collection attempt and the shoal will float away from you. If you use a team format the lead char can follow the shoal while the tail character fishes. This is dfficult and you will go cross-eyed after awhile staring at the screen. The shoals will randomly stop moving long enough for you to fish them but you must be quick to recognize it has stopped and jump on it. It seemed that on average you had about 3-6 seconds to recognize the shoal stopped and got fishing on it. If you are too slow the shoal will start to drift away on you before you can collect. To speed things up I pre-loaded the rod ( right click bait and click rod ), put the fishing rod in the tool bar on F1, once I recognized the shoal had stopped I sailed to it, mouse selected it and used F1 key. You will find every second counts or you may find your wife learning new words....as mine did.

p.s. Do not forget to get all the fishing quests from the NPC in Seville.  - mtl1275

started fishing the low lvl shoals with the 2 Low rods and junior shoal with the Navi rod, as I think it's the only place to get the swordfish flesh and tuna flesh for the quest (I didn't collect any in the senior shoals) got lvl 6 medal from low level and some lvl 7 medals from junior.
I have 94 salmon and 65 eel flesh from the senior shoals but can't do anything with it until I collect the tuna and swordfish.  -olieb
Quote:
120 fishing, got hades/ares, lvl9 ornaments and IM stones from senior shoal - REALD
Quote:
I used the low lvl rod in a low lvl shoal with a noob I learned lvl 1 fishing on, I  fished a lvl 6 medal and picked up perfect hide too.  lol - olieb
Quote:
Junior shoals I needed for tuna flesh and dropped lvl 7 ornaments.... but move more than low lvl.
I found low lvl shoals near Mallorca and between Athens and Alexandria.
I think they must be the only shoals you could fish with the 'rod' which has (1) distance...luckily the low lvl shoals dont move around very much at all.
Caught lvl 6 ornaments and perfect hide....can get the swordfish flesh in these shoals.

Well DON'T Put the flesh in the bank! Unless this is a bug or just me you lose 'credit' for catching the stuff by putting them in there for storage. This goes for all the fish too. Off to live support to see what they say. I'll have a whole lot of wasted time and credits if this is 'normal'.  *sigh*

Update: After awhile the stats came back. This happened while talking to LS who did say not to worry, that the quest would still submit. But the good news is yes to Armati's question. Flesh can even be traded to others in the normal fashion and it will count towards quests.  :-)

I fished low-level shoal with a fine fishing rod and switched between cheap bait and junior bait.

I got cod, sardine, anchovy and herring.  I got tuna flesh and sword fish flesh.  I got a lv 7 ring and a high class chine.

A couple of times I got a message telling me my fishing pole wasn’t high enough level.

When caught in a storm or when fishing failed I had to rebait the hook.  If I stopped fishing because I was out of range, I did not have to rebait, I just clicked the rod again.

Fishing Level 49 ( forgot to add that)

Edit, finished using my fine fishing pole.  besides what I listed above I also got samon flesh, perfect hide and a lv 8 jewel

Maybe it's old news
Just an FYI if anyone is still out there high sea fishing.  
Jewelry comes in lvls 6-10,  I'm now 99.999999% sure this is how you get the higher chances of getting the goods.
(all DeepSea)
Swordfish=6
Tuna=7
Salmon=8
Eel=9
Shark=10
Now this is only true for the jewelry,  as far as I can tell.  Only thing that has ever dropped Hades/Ares for me is Sharks.  But that is me, not you.
First time I went fishing I was lucky and got 3 saph's  at the same time,  that has never happened to me again, and think it might be a fluke.  That being said, I can say that all those crazy items that do come in 3's  are used for Guild Town Upgrades.  So  find a guild that needs them and sell, or save incase your guild might someday. Gotten same stuff from all deepsea style fish.  Maps come in stacks of 4-60 for me so far. but drop rate has dropped on those as well, most things have.  
Most other things that can be had from "deepsea" style fish seem to be on a random drop rate.  
I have noticed on things that seems to help.  If I Right click as soon as it's caught, it's almost always flesh.  But, with over 90% of the time I've tried,  Stocking up 7 or more of any/all deepsea fish before right clicking has almost always gotten me 2 or 3 items, This is also how I've had really good luck getting Hades/Ares sets now divided among my guild members.  I seem to have best luck lining fish by lvls in Rows ,  with highest on the bottem.  so  4 Salmon, 3 Eel, 2 Shark.  with Shark getting right clicked after 4 salmon,  and again after eel.  Has given me a much higher rate of item drops.  Not sure if anyone else has noticed.  Also I've tried this fishing all three lvl Shoal and every single area using 2 rods.  

I'm about to do my last  Deep sea rod,  two more rods  with some lvl1 food are in warehouse for later,  but  I've spent tooo much time fishing, only thing I really have gotten out of it that is really useful, is 39 lvls in Voyage, that I'm most happy about.  

Got lots of other ideas  and tons of Colony upgrade items,  PM if you have any questions, or on Columbus, just look for sweets.  

Oh  one final note.   Fishing lvl helps,  I started at lvl 1,  and now am 71,  But it doesn't help with anything other than getting fewer "Luck not good enough" crap.  IMO I haven 't seen any change in the lvl of deepsea/ or normal fish what so ever
Total Rods Used(Jr.)
33 Fine Rods (low-lvl)
5 Rods used ( thrown away over 50) can't stand the range after using a deepsea.
