I just won for the first time about a month ago, been doing the contest on and off pretty much since launch. Here's what I've learned:- Fish the western coast from Grom Gol north to the inlet and back again. There are level 30-ish crocks there that discourage lvl 19 twinks from hitting that area meaning less competition for the schools.- turn on auto-loot in preferences. Hotkey your casting icon. speed counts.- set hearthstone to the booty bay inn at least an hour before the contest starts- go against the crowd. Are people passing you headed south? go north -- the schools they just fished out will respawn shortly- always be looking for your next school. scan the coastline behind you as you run. the schools respawn so quickly sometimes you can run away from one behind you, so always be scanning.- put a runspeed enchant on your boots! Get a riding crop or other speed gear for your mount.- in 2.4 tasty fish schools will be trackable, so get your weather beaten journal now! Or get friends to scan the coastline for your next school.Beyond that it's just plain luck regarding how many "junk" catches you pull from pools, how many schools spawn close to you, and how many people are competing on a given sunday. Good luck all!

Druids should also try to get four pieces of the Gladiator gear set if they're level 70. The runspeed bonus from the set stacks with the runspeed bonus boot enchant, making cheetah form almost as fast as a level 40 mount. It's very useful when jumping to nearby pools. For longer hauls, mount up.I won once, and got the rod, I'm pretty happy. I've got the boot as well, and would like to get the fishing line. I'll try to get the hat from the new daily quest to max out my fishing at 500.
