    Default Mega-Hooky Vest - Extra Fish %?

    Can we get a precision on the % increase of fish size of the mega-hooky vest? It's been the first fishing daily challenge since the guild challenges update.

    To revive this thread and treat the curiosity, I spent some time exploring its effect. I found out that it isn't just a passive % increase but rather a buff that has a chance to proc. It seems to be similar to the Guild Potion - Big Fish.

    As you can see, it "catches a bigger fish", which I am unsure exactly what that means but I think we can make a fairly generous guess to suggest that it is a 2x lb. multiplier when the buff procs. To get it to first proc, I used around 70-80 Salmon Eggs and caught about 27 fish, which 1 (a Catfish) became a "bigger fish" (10lb.).
    I tested again using Minor Otherworldly bait to see its proc frequency. Minor Otherworldly Bait has a max lb. size of 20lbs. and has a fairly generous fish catch rate (around 38%). I used 110~ bait and got it to proc once from 26 fish, and then another time in the next 10 bait (5 fish). I got it to proc one last time in 80~ bait and around 20 fish. Each time it occurred, the fish's size was 20lb., which is the bait's max lb. coincidentally, so it seems like it respects the bait's lb. max. Since the average lb. size from using Minor Otherworldly bait is 10lb. (range of 1-20), I feel it is same to assume that it is a 2x multiplier to lb. since any lb. size caught from 10lb. to 20lb. will be increased to the bait's max lb. size. It also seems to work every 1/20 (5%) - 1/30 (3.3%) time a fish is caught, which is dependant on the bait used (since different baits have different fish catch rates). On average, this seems to be a 3-5% chance on top of a 30-40% chance.

    TL;DR: 2x lb. multiplier, 2%~ chance to occur.

    If it really doubles the catch i really need this :/

    But will it stack with roles bonus, golden rod, guild potion and the food that gave extra lb?

    Sadly I have no confirmation but only good assumptions. It is best to presume it is at least 1.5x multiplier and at most a 2x multiplier. Especially due to its low chance to occur, it is probably a 2x multiplier.
