Came back to water; unable to end fishing mode, equip weapon, begin fishing again. Ended up going to Windsward, dragging a fish behind me the while way.

Had this happen today, couldn’t do anything, camera was attached to my fishing spot, fishing rod was on my back and the treasure chest stuck on my foot. I couldn’t go into inventory, menu or anything, had to Alt-F4 out of the game.

Yeah, it’s one of those weird quirky situations. Since “fishing mode” is special and doesn’t disable certain extraneous events, it was bound to happen on occasion.
