I started fishing last night and after catching 8 fish and some rusty leggings all I would get were you didn't catch anything messages. That was in North San D'Oria. So I zoned to Port and same thing just "you didn't catch anything" messages. I checked my bait and I still had some equipped. My fishing skill is still at 0, but I'm wearing all the level 1 fishing gear. I was catching Moat carp and Tricolored carp using a Halcyon rod.
Was I doing something wrong? I kept getting the same message for over 30 minutes.
