Baits for fishing

kreuzkopfeb17_ESO
I see a lot of questions for fishing bait. Using the right bait can significantly increase the probability of catching rare fish. Fishing in the group also affects positively.

Ocean
Bait: Worms, Chub
Fish: Dhufish, Longfin, Minnow

Lake
Bait: Guts, Minnow
Fish: Spadetail, Silverside Perch, Shad

River
Bait: Insect Parts, Shad
Fish: Salmon, River Betty, Fish Roe

Foul Water
Bait: Crawlers, Fish Roe
Fish: Slaughterfish, Trodh, Chub

    Just what use do fish have? I love fishing in other games, the fish can be good food sources and fishing can get you useful items, in ESO it simply seems to help fill scarce inventory slots.

    "Fishing in ESO is not only fun, it is a Skill that benefits you socially, benefits your other professions (such as crafting potions in Alchemy and cooking in provisioning), can help you get rare surprises and special achievements. Further, every time you catch a fish you will also gain experience that increases your proficiency in the fishing skill. As you practice and progress you will get quicker and better at fishing and your rewards will get better too as you improve, like in other crafting professions. "

    I don't know much is true, but do not exclude the possibility that this is true.

    I agree with you. The developers of this game have provided quite a lot. I hope in the future fishing will be developed and refined better.

    I got a wet sack that had 2 yellow Kota runes in it. That classifies as a "rare surprise" in my book. Have also caught several rare fish working toward getting some achievements. I do wish we could cook them, and that they'd fix the issue with rare fish not going to your inventory.

    Very little, lets hope they get added to different legendary v14 recipes are something, at the moment there's not much reason to fish.

    There are recipes that use fish.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (bosmer template) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Wow, nice Necro post from a year ago.

    You can "clean" fish now by dbl or rt clicking on the raw fish. They become "fish" mats for provisioning.

    Fishing isn't a skill line, but filleting your common fish will give you the provisioning mat "fish" (as if you needed more) and has a small chance to give you "Perfect Roe" which is a rare (and valuable) provisioning mat as its used for the experience potions. If you get caught on a wet gunny sack it can have anything from junk to kutas in it as noted above. And, It can also give you various house furnishings as alluded to by @lientier

    Best Add-ons for fishing:

    Rare Fish Tracker - to keep track of progress on the top fishing achievement, Master Angler

    Votan's Fisherman - - fishing becomes easier with a "lure in" notification and adds a colored pin to your map showing the type of water/bait once you have caught something in that particular fishing spot.

    Votan's Fish Fillet - for filleting stacks of fish with fewer key presses

    Best bait is the master bait, aquired through the story allowing you to easily catch the legendary pokemon defeat the PvF element of the game.
