Did he cancel a Fishmonger quest and dry dock his ship? Canceling a Fishmonger quest (which tosses the crate overboard) loses Fishmonger reputation. If you want to dry dock your ship, make sure to turn in all your remaining Fishmonger quests, and refuse to accept new ones before you dry dock.

I worked that questline like mad to earn my 2nd 120 Fishing PS.

Sorry, but it's working as intended. As long as it doesn't fall below 20 fish of each type his rep is fine. Once an order for six lines is delivered for a particular city it starts again at one line, other cities will continue to build to six and then fall back to one in turn.

And why didn't you know they reset once you do six line ones for a city? Instead of pretending it is a bug.

Too bad the city trade runs do not reset back to one.

I don't remember it going from 6 lines to 1, ever.

I haven't done the quest in over a year, and I'm fairly certain if I go accept one right now, there's no way in hell it's going to be a 1 liner.

erm, that proves that the last quest you delivered for whichever town you took that from was a 4 liner and you have not lost reputation with the fishers. The next order you take from that particular town will be a 6 liner, and the one after that a one. How many lines the quest you get from Britain when you deliver that one will depend on how many lines the last order you delivered for Britain was.

Fishing is a little too mundane for me but maybe someone can answer this question:

If you receive a 120 fishing scroll (or even something else ) at 6lines x 20 fish; do you need to start all over at 1 line x 5 fish? Or do you just cycle back around (like you would anyway) to 1 line x 20 fish?

If it's that latter then that's not a bad setup because you only need to complete 5 more runs for that town before being potentially eligible for another 120 scroll.

you don't drop below 20 fish unless you really, really screw up your reputation setting. You will find you are delivering orders of varying number of lines for the different fish mongers, while one has cycled back to one line, others are building towards 6.

Cool. So although you are dropping down to 1 line; you are really only 5 more quests away from getting a 120 scroll for any given city (once every city has hit 6 lines x 20fish). I think that kinda helps. It's not like you have to build all the way back up to 100 from zero... it's more like going to 100 from 75. Could be worse.

Ya but this is UO. You have a chance for it to increase :)

For each fish (or crustacean) that you have completed an order for, you get a chance to get an order for 2 different kinds of fish. The same way, for each fish that you have completed an order for twice, you get a chance to get an order for 3 different kinds of fish. This progresses until you are getting the largest order of 6 different kinds of fish. While your chance for a larger order increases, it will ultimately be evaluated by the Rng.
