I think this video (not me) will be of use to you New World Fishing Luck Guide!! FARM MORE OYSTERS!! FARM MORE LEGENDARIES!! - YouTube

i dont even have t3 fishing trophies, just the regular fishing quest gear and t2 trophies so if this is how it works it needs to be changed

I don’t think it needs changing, although I agree it’s a pretty subjective topic.
