    I actually know a 99.6 fisherman that has never botted. Like really..yes really..really

    But she's not 100 so I guess I still have to say no.

    I knew a 100 fisher that never botted. They fished for like 6 months straight...bought a nobles tunic with thier profits...fished some more...finally hit 100 and quit the game LOL.

    Was Sugarbaby on Asura. She was in Royal / Origin / whatever HNMLS, but from my understanding pretty much retired from active play last summer to fish.

    She quit around Christmas break, then came back for a bit recently with the free-month promotion, but didn't like the changes to fishing so I think she quit again.

    My experiences have led me to believe that anyone that actually takes fishing to even 90+ without botting quit shortly there after.

    Fishing to 100 w/o botting.

    Very very true. Alot of my fishing buddies have quit. However I paced myself with fishing. Last year exactly I had 46 fishing, I was never really in any rush, although I did a super big burst of fishing for lushang (btw I keep charts and graphs of my skillups, catch rates, day rates, moon phases, season phases, etc etc etc). Then again, i'm in the .0001% minority of the game that actually finds fishing fun.

    Speaking of the botting stuff. I found the most amusing thing last week on another forum. Someone that everyone knows botted fishing for months on end makes a comment about how great of gear she had without every buying gil. One has to ask themselves is there really any differences when both are forms of essientally cheating, I mean they are both abusing the system.

    To Avanarius, sorry I couldn't really answer your question I got burned out on fishing at level 40, it started to drive me nuts.

    Well I think that it is wrong but like RMT theres no real way to know they do it, except if youre the ever so obvious anon/no ls/mog master/stupid name fisher thats at the same spot 27/4. It was kinda depressing for me finding out that the 2 fishing mentors I had (one of which got me into fishing in the first place) both ended up being botters. I don't try to stop it, but I just instantly lose all respect for the person.

    Also botters don't know jack shit about fishing. :3 Theres alot more then rod + bait + water. Day, time, moon, season, etc all play a huge factor in bite rate. The bots just go 'dur im gonna fish herez now' and end up being alot less productive then someone smart that knows what's going on.
