Fishing areas:    Mouse over icons for information
Go fishingOnce your boat is all equipped select your fishing area.
Click on the fishing area then click on the Go fishing icon.
There are 14 fishing areas, when you click on one and select a boat you get this window ►
window top:
HazardsShows the chance of hazards in the area.
The farther away the fishing area, the higher chance of hazards and will damage your boats.
TimerShows the travel time there and back for this fishing area.
The farther away the fishing area, the longer it takes to get there.
FishShows you what fish are in the area and how many.
Each area resets after 24 hours, but if you catch all the fish in an area it will rest.
window center:
This window will show you all the boats in your fleet so you may pick between them to fish the area.
Click on a boat to see it's equipment/crew and default stats.
This gives you the opportunity to add equipment and crew and select the right boat for each area.
window bottom:
More boatsMore boats
Opens the Manage boats window so you may equip boats or buy new ones.
Deploy selected boatDeploy selected boat
Sends the selected boat out to fish in this area.

You can deploy your boats while the Dockyard is being upgraded.
The time it takes to fish that area depends on the boat you select and the fish.
Once the boat is done fishing it goes back to the dock, ready to be unloaded.
Once you've unloaded your boats it's a good idea to refresh your screen to reset the fishing areas.
NOTE from Craftycritters: You do not need to add specific fish equipment when you fish. You will automatically catch all of the different kinds of fish in the pool in equal numbers providing that there are enough fish there of each kind
example: If there are 3 kinds of fish in the pool and there is a total of 21 fish there, you will catch 7 of each one. But, if you only want to catch one of them, then add equipment for that 1 fish and that is the only one that you will catch. Your total number of fish will be all this one kind of fish, providing that there are sufficient numbers of the fish available.
This is the only time you need to add fishing equipment for a specific kind of fish.

6/14/2017: I've updated the image to now show total travel time, there and back.

WascallyWabbit "When you are not having certain fish available at any locations - There are 14 different fishing locations, of which 6 should always be active. When one location has been emptied of fish, it will close & a new location will open (hopefully with the fish you want). If an empty one does not disappear, go to a different farm & back again. Locations also reset after 24 hours."

With the changes to the Deep Sea Fishing area we need to make some changes to our game play.
The sell price of fish has gone down drastically but the price of boats and equipment/crew has remained the same.
The verity of fishing pools have changed drastically and the number of fish in the pools has decreased.
With the above in mind I have come up with the following game plan and it is working very well for me.
Stay away from the freezers as much as you can, they are the most expensive equipment out there.
Don't waste boat slots on hazard equipment because it's more important to get as much fish as you can in less time.
You will make the most of the fishing area if you get your boats out and back as fast as you can.
Fill your boats with Travel time saved and Fish caught per hour.
The faster you empty those pools, the faster you'll get new ones.
The image below is what I've worked out for a fleet of 13 level 6 Trawlers. I have used this for months now without fail.
Watch this Loading your boats video to understand how it works.
    level 6 Trawler
 
A standard boat (6 Roy & 6 Brigitte) will cost $99,750.
A freezer boat (1 Large freezer, 6 Roy & 5 Brigitte) will cost $129,325
 
Be sure you don't load more Brigitte than needed to save yourself some money each time.
 
IMAGE UPDATED: 10/27/2017 Now it's bigger and better to read with the correct max Brigitte.
WascallyWabbit Post: 10/13/2017 As far as we know, there are no changes planned for the pools, but there are changes coming for the contracts, so hopefully things will be more balanced after that.
After reading this post from Wascally I am positive now that we have to come up with a new game plan.
I am aware that due to player levels it's imposable for everyone to have Trawlers so I'm working on images for the other boats.
If you don't want to print one of these images for an easy reference on your desk just draw yourself a rough sketch with side notes.
    level 6 Skipjack
 
A standard boat (6 Nancy & 6 Ian) will cost $83,700.
A freezer boat (1 Freezer, 6 Nancy & 6 Ian) will cost $109,050
 
IMAGE UPDATED: 10/27/2017 Now it's bigger and better to read with the correct #6 max Ian.
 
    level 6 Norfolk wherry
 
A standard boat (4 James & 7 Carol) will cost $47,375.
A freezer boat (1 Thermic box, 4 James & 6 Carol) will cost $69,150
 
I know you must be thinking... What the heck, why do I want to run back there every hour and fill them boats again. Believe me, you will want to do just that. The faster you empty those pools, the faster you'll get more, meaning more money.
    level 6 Runabout
 
A standard boat (3 Paul & 7 Joe) will cost $22,600.
I see no reason to spend $11,700 on a Coolbox to get 1 more fish :)

A standard boat (1 Walter, 5 Jim & 3 John) will cost $12,925.
A faster boat (5 Jim & 4 John) will cost $11,275.
