But how do I make the pole cast into the water. All the forums say make a hot key but they dont do it step by step. So, I am yelling fish at the water and accomplishing nothing.

When you go into your actions window, under the skills tab set one of them to the fishing skill. That button can be copied to your hotbars and it will activate fishing. Of course you need to have the pole in your primary slot, have bait, and be near water.

You can also create a social hot key to cast, pause, and attempt and /autoinventory command to make things easier.

If I recall correctly, it will look something like:

/pause 40, /activate [whichever number is your fishing skill 1-6]

Hopefully that was correct. It's been a while.

Happy fishing!

Thanks a lot, it’s slowly coming back to me. Now I’m a fishing fool.

Check the Fisherman's Companion task. The companion summons unlimited fishing poles and mugs of beer. And there are several different clickable 'buckets of bait' and a tinkered item that process fish into useable fishing bait. If you really want to level fishing then wait until you can enter plane of nightmare. Catch the needed fish, process them for the bones and complete the Plane of Knowledge task. You'll burn through poles no matter your skill.

I collected the gnome tinkering parts for the tinkered bait tool from mobs in PoI and maybe a couple other places. I think it took a week of casual play time and leveled up three times to collect enough parts to make two of the little gizmos - found a max level tinkerer - and fini. I could now summon poles, bait and beer on demand and person who tinkered the bait tool got one for their kind effort.

It is funny how you can forget basic techniques. I don't fish often and on the rare occasion when I have to for a quest I have to figure it out all over again.
