About Fishing Buddy

Fishing Buddy

A fishing addon that keeps track of the fish you catch and helps manage your fishing gear.

- Double-click fishing
- Supports the new WoW "fish without a pole" feature
- Bring out your fishing pets! Drink heavily!
- 'Fish Watcher' lets you see the fish you've caught here before (or the fish that you've caught in the current session)
- Display your current skill level and the time since you started fishing
- Choose your fishing outfit and change into it easily
- Support for automatically adding a lure to your fishing pole
- Support for tracking 'cycle fish' such as the Nightfin Snapper so you know when to go looking for them

Example commands:
/fishingbuddy or /fb
toggle the display of the Fishing Buddy window
/fb help
print the list of Fishing Buddy commands
/fb switch
wear your chosen fishing outfit, or change back

Silly stuff:
In addition to displaying the fishing bonus for your fishing outfit, it also displays your 'style points' as inferred from Draznar's Fishing FAQ (

    Before the latest update, I could toggle weapon/pole again to fix the casting bug, but now it won't cast at all.

  • #1952

    Easy cast  has stopped working with this update. Try different characters, resetting UI, etc. It won't cast at all now.

  • #1951

    Still bugged after update! Easy Cast randomly stops working and the only way to fix it is to reloadui.

  • #1950

     Easy cast is not working at all no matter what I do. Up until today it would stop occasionally not on skillups, I was at 525 skill, usually when a junk item was autolooted I think. If I swapped my  weapon and fishing pole out a few times it would start to work again for a while but after today's update nothing works at all... nada easy cast, nada easy lure, nothing. This was with the latest download of v1.0.7i.

     What happened?

     I reverted to v1.0.7h and it's working again like it should. Smile

     Edit: After a couple hours of fishing with an alt I'm happy to report that v1.0.7h seems to be working perfectly. Easy cast never stopped once on me even with numerous skillups (and looting grey junk) and easy lures always worked when it should have. I'm sticking with v1.0.7h for the time being!

    Easy cast stops on fishing skill up, at least until next skill up.

    I tested this 'cause i keep encountering the not easy casting on skill up bug.  What i found out seemed weird.

    I was at skill 449 when i started today, also drinking Captain Rumsey's Lager automatically.  Got to 450 and automatically took another Captain Rumsey's lager (maybe bfore it expired, not sure)

    Reached skill lvl 452, then easy cast stopped working, so I opened the Spellbook and casted manually.  I tested easy case each time then casted manually since it wasn't working.

    On skill lvl 453, it started working again, automatically took a Captain Rumsey's Lager, then next dbl click did the easy cast w/o trouble.  

    Kept casting until I reached skill level 457.   Then I just stopped fishing since it seemed to be working fine.

    I wonder if it's those other buff items that cause trouble with easy cast....

  • #1944

    Easy cast stops working for me on a fishing skill up, not all of the time, but when it stops working, it is always on a skill up.

  • #1945

    Thanks for the bug report, I will see if I can reproduce this!

    The easy cast double right click is also acting up for me.  I noticed it today doing fishing dailies.  It would work fine until I caught a fish that counted toward the daily quest (whitefish in Darnassus) then it would stop working.  Reloading the UI would cause it to start working again until I caught the next quest fish.  Happened with two seperate toons.  It was the same daily quest though.  Hope this helps.

    Awesome addon.  Thanks for all the hardwork you folks do.

  • #1940

    Same for me. Had to open spell book when it stoped untill I got a skill up in fishing then it let me cast by clicking, untill it stoped again so I repeted untill I got another skill point and it worked again. Off and on cinda thing, lol................ Very anoying... Please Fix

    Oh. dont know if this is related to this addon but on my hunter when I select my foces target, it errors out and causes me to not set it untill I reload my ui and it disables Fishing buddy when i do. its weard. dosnt give me a lul error report eather.

  • #1938

    I downloaded the latest version of Fishing Buddy when it got updated (last night I think).

    The right click re-casting worked perfectly for a few casts. I was so happy. And then it stopped working randomly. Even a reload ui doesn't fix it.

    Anyone got any idea what  this is?

    EDIT: Ok, discovered something bizarre. When the UI is turned off, it casts perfectly. But when the UI is on, it won't re-cast on right click.
