Currently 70 Fishing. I'm training hunter right now but when I get really bored I plan to fish. Which would be better to fish? I'm kind of skeptical of lobsters at the moment because the price seems to be dropping alot. Or maybe I should mine pure essence? What are your opinions?

Lobsters are highly needed by people that do Cooking and plus they would be faster to get and more EXP overall. Swordies are rare and more expensive but you also get Tuna with them which is practically useless.

But overall Monkfish is the in between of the two.

As stated above, stay away from the swordies, less chance and less demand.

As soon as you reach 75+ think about completing Swan Song, and fish the monks. 120exp per fish and 500 each is really good.
Best of Luck!

OO hard to say, in members because you bank instantly, probably swordfish best overall. in free, do lobs only

And i can confirm swordfish/tuna come faster then lobsters because i timed my level 76 fishing account against my level 72 fishing account.

the 72 was doing swordfish and finished full inventory about 7 or 8 pieces of fish ahead of the 76, same time for both, didnt have to change fishing spot for both.

Ofcourse i suppose you can argue the timing is random, however i still think swordfish/tuna come faster, and their price averages out to be about the same as a lobster assuming a 50/50 ratio. Btw when you do swordfish you get strength xp if you barbarian fish!!

Lobs are 350 each right now raw!! It's very good money and I've been training fishing for a long time the past week or so from 40 - 61 because of how high they are. They are more in demand as well.

When I did ~74 - 80 I found that I liked swordfish better for some unknown reason.

For me, I caught them at nearly the same rate and with swordfish I also banked the tuna.

Lobsters are always in demand, swordfish would probably have to be sold at a bit below mid.

I'd definitely suggest fishing, once you get to high level you can always switch to sharks.
