Fishing in my House! What Anglers Really Want!

My Fishing Guild has been around since before One Tamriel. We are a bunch of Master Anglers with a boat parked back at the primary residence, while we are our fishing. These guys & gals were fishing before fishing was cool...back before perfect roe existed. We fish together, we sell Perfect Roe and Unfilleted Fish on our trader, and we kill anything that moves to see if it drops fish bait. We fish.... ALOT! & we talk about fishing! One night sitting around the campfire, down on the beach of our island guild home... we were discussing What Anglers Really Want. We decided that we should make our Fishy Demands knows to the Devs...so here goes.....
1) We want Fishing Holes that are furnishing items for the water areas of our houses. One of each type: River Hole, Ocean Hole, Lake Hole, Foul Hole. These four holes will each Spawn once a day, at random times...and they would produce no rare spawns. This would insure that eventually people really will leave their homes and join the rest of the world for questing and other fun activities. These four Fish Holes can be placed on a Shiny Brand New Master Angler Achievement Vendor. They can also be offered via a crown store ONLY available IF one of your toons has unlocked the Master Angler Achievement! Perhaps these new furnishing item fishing holes could even be craftable by Master Crafters.
2) We want Fishing Boat Rentals. We want to "rent" a fishing boat, for a modest gold fee, to take us out to sea, or onto the lake, river and swamp/foul areas to fish several never before reached fishing holes. Perhaps once a day, the Shiny New Master Angler Achievement Vendor could offer free tokens to rent the fishing boat to those who qualify. These boat rentals could be an instance...just like a small delve or quest is an instance.
3) Now that we have the adorable Fisher Costume...we would like a Fishing Pole, Fishing Spear, Fishing Net, Fillet Dagger weapon Motifs to change the look of your current weapon/weapons into the fishing accessory of your choice. These Motifs can drop from the new fishing holes that you fish while out on the new Fishing Rental Boat! :)
4) We want the Rare fish from each zone to be a Housing item that we can place in our House! We want them to look like the adorable Icons you see when you view them in your inventory. We want to place them in our aquariums or mount them on the wall. These new house friendly fish can have their own Category under housing editor just like the Undaunted Busts, so they wont eat away at your Available Item Slots.
5) We want Bonus Fish Yield from each fish hole during the events, just like we have Bonus Harvest time in the zones where the events are happening.

Some of these Fishy Wishes are Housing, some are Overland...all are things we would Love to See implemented into the game!
Please, Add your ideas to this list...keep it active...make sure the Devs see this. Let's remind them that Fishers are important too and to please consider our Fishy Demands!
I will check back later, as I am interested to hear what my fellow fishers would like to add to this list....but for now...I'm Gone Fishing!

Fishy Disclaimer: No Trolls Allowed! Don't bash this post! If you don't like fishing or housing, Kindly Move Along.

    One of things preventing me from buying Earthtear in Craglorn was the lack of a small fishing boat or raft that I could DRIVE around and FISH! This would be awesome!

    Lovely ideas, it would be great to sea them added! :wink: It's a shame that it's unlikely to happen - people have been asking for harvesting nodes for their house for a long time but it seems ZOS can't or don't want to implement it. Still, there's no need to give up, these are fun suggestions!

    A group of players that don’t often get consideration. I’m not one to enjoy ESO fishing, but I hope you gain some traction with these ideas :)

    If fishing required a little more attention or challenge other than hitting “reel in” at the right moment, do you think fishing would be more popular?

    I fish in every rpgmmo I play and I collect anything fishy I can get my hands on. Afcourse I did my master Amgler ...fishing is in my blood. I actually enjoy venturing out to fish as I love many of the beautiful fishing spots around Tamriel. I wouldn't complain about fishing in my houses, I own the palace and hundings and I have my lil fishing piers but no fish as yet afcourse.

    My main wish for fishing is more fishing rewards and a variety of boats to choose from as furnishings also some new and fun fishing achievements.

    Fishing really does need an overhaul....so many of us love it and are dedicated fishy people....i love our fishy folk costume we got so a big thank you to zos for that 😊😊😊

    I have Hunding Palatial Hall which is the house that you speak of...I built a dock to fish off of, complete with Fish Rack with hanging fish, Rack with Fishing Pole & Fish Spears on it, the Huge Luxury Vendor Anchor, the Master Angler Achievement boat.....it's all set up with the fishing theme....just waiting for the Housing Item Fishing Holes to be put into game. :) Or maybe the ability to take my boat out on the ocean and fish. Would be so cool to fish off of the dock there on my own private island.

    Thank you for your post! I really appreciate the support! I value everyone's ideas and love to hear them.
    Just to clarify... most of the Fisher Folk that I spoke to enjoy the relaxing feel of fishing just the way it is. It is a niche for some of the more laid back players who want to just roam, harvest, and fish as they make their way though a zone. Or for those devoted and patient enough to catch every rare fish in the game. Attaining the Master Angler Achievement IS a challenge. I see fewer Master Angler titles than I do Former Emperor titles. You have to travel through all the original zones and even go fishing in Cyrodil. Even those of us who do not do PVP have to sneak into there and fish. This is definitely a challenge.
    True it is not exciting enough of a challenge for some people, but that's okay. We need a few relaxing past times. There are plenty of very exciting and challenging activities in ESO already. PVP, Dungeons, Trials. ESO has something for everyone. That's what makes this game Great! It gives us so many choices!

    I don't want to change the actual fishing at all, I would just like to see a few extra perks thrown in for those who LOVE to fish. Rewards for those who are patient and tenacious enough to actually achieve that Master Angler Rank. I don't want it to be more popular, I just want either achievement rewards or crown store purchase items suited to my desired past time. Never at any time have I ever I heard a true angler say they wanted fishing to be "more challenging or exciting or interesting".
    Fisher Folk already love fishing. Master Anglers are already interested.
    However, They DO say...
    " I want fishing holes in my house". Or " I wish I could fish from a boat" Or " I wish my Rare fish could hang on the wall in my house"

    I agree that motifs would be a great reward for fishing ,however, any drops from fishing should be pertaining to fishing and only of interest to those who already love to fish. It would be fantastic to get Armor Motifs or Outfit Style Pages that give us the look of a Master Angler complete with fishing rod weapon, bucket of worms, fishing spear...etc.

    I am simply trying to give a voice to those who already love to fish. Maybe get them a few Master Angler Only Perks.
    This thread is a compilation of what Master Anglers have told me they would love to see, along with a few of mine own ideas.
    Maybe the devs will hear us...:)
    Thanks again so much for posting and helping us gain attention.Very Much appreciated! :)

    All great ideas!

    I've developed my share of game expansions just for fun (doom, q2, f2, f3, f4, es3, es4, es5) I can testify it'd take a good crew of 2 people about a week to get all of this set up & looking fantastic ;) I could program the Master Angler boat to travel on water, over the slaughterfish & beyond to an ocean worldboss in less than an hour. Master Fisher Achievement Vendor... probably take 5mins :*

    I'd like to see a craftable bucket of fish recipe. Empty the bucket to create a fishing hole in the waters of your house. Again, probably take around 5mins to program *sigh*

    Fishing in ESO needs a whole bunch of mini-upgrades, without a doubt!

    Thanks for the support for my post! I hope we can see some of these easy to do items become real! Thanks for sharing your ideas with me prior to my post! Happy fishing!

    I especially love the trophy idea. In LOTRO we had a TON of fish trophies and they were all in lovely wall plaques and looked reasonably realistic. You could create a little grouping of smaller fish, or put that big ol' swordfish over the mantel, etc. It would definitely enhance housing AND be fun to show off.

    I'd love a home fishing hole, too, though once a day would not be long enough for me, but I don't like the idea of being forced to leave my home and go do things elsewhere. xD

    I know what you mean! There would definitely be days that I stayed home and fished if they spawned really often. Several spawn times a day for each of the four types of fishing hole would be nice. Non-stop fishing availability would be better...but I just don't think ZOS will give us that. They probably wont give us the fishing holes at all. I don't know why, it can't possibly hurt anything, since fishing holes are literally all over the place. But you know how they like to control things like that. Thank you for your post! :)
