Fishing upgrade

We've upgraded the fishing system, well, actually pretty much rewrote the whole thing. Most of the functionality, like Bait and Hooks, is earmarked for the Elysium expansion, but there's a few things you can try right away.

There's 13 new fish that you can catch around specific areas in Trammel. The areas are quite large (not just a 20x20 tile) so they should be easy to find, should be fun. Revealing just one location at this point: one special fishing pool is all around the Jhelo'm islands.

The fish can be cooked into 4 new recipes, which you can learn by reading a book, the book can be bought from the Fisher NPC. These new recipes give minor food buffs. Along with these 4 new dishes, three old dishes also give minor buffs: Chicken leg, Cooked bird, and Cake. The buffs are very minor, nothing game changing, just so we can test this in the real world and have the system ready & tested for when we open the new areas.

All these new fish can be placed in an aquarium, or a fish bowl. The old aquarium fishing net can no longer be purchases. Instead, you can purchase the "Exotic Fish Lure", add it to your fishing pole, and go fish for the aquarium (exotic) fish.

I'm at 149 N, 101 W. Just caught a Britain Crown Fish. Next cast got a Golden Broadtail.

Indication that I needed the special lure is that I got a message that the fish were not interested.

You can keep fishing, even after you get that message, until the fish are no longer biting. After that, move to a new spot.
