How do fishing zones work?
Each zone has an associated level of fishing that defines the difficulty of catching a fish. The higher your fishing skill is in relation to the level that a zone requires, the easier it will be to catch fish. If your skill is below the zone’s requirement, you will catch junk items rather than fish.
