To get max personal score for the fishing guild event, you need to catch 299 fish with the pristine anomarod. If you get 1 fish every 7 baits, that's 2100 baits to use. With the speed of pristine anomarod fishing, you're getting most likely using 3 baits every minute. That results in 700 minutes of using the rod. 700 minutes is 11.6 hours of straight fishing.

I don't see how that's all that great.
