1: Make sure you have a 22" wide screen. It might work on smaller screens though.

2: go in windowed mode and make the screen pretty small, also bind fishing to a key.

3: make sure you hear wow-sounds while another window is focused.

4: Open tankspot, set up your windows so you see both.

5: Start fishing and go back to tankspot, when you hear the "hooked" sound, double rightclick to catch your fish. (1 to focus the wow window and 1 to actually reel the fish in. Press you hotkeyed fishing button and go back to reading tankspot.

6: Once in a while you'll get Pygmy Suckerfish - Item - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?item=40199) as a by catchh.
As alchemist I was able to make 21 Pygmy Oil - Spell - World of Warcraft (http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=53812) out of 12 fishes.

7: Go to the AH and put up the Pygmy Oil for 40G a piece.....profit.

8: I caught about 12 of em during 40 minutes of fishing right outside Vendeance Landing where the crabs are.

I've been questing in old world, flicking back and forth between Shoutbox and fightan stuffs.

Am doing dailies as we speak. :)

*pause to fire bombs*

And yeah, ~2k gold in 3 days with tankspot to keep me entertained. :)

One of the things I noticed is that when you make the wow-window smaller, the "clickbox" for reeling in the fish stays the same size, so it didn't become harder to fish with a smaller window, I'd even say easier. Also a lot of the other fish can be used for buf-food (which I use myself or give away to the raid) but can make quite a bit of gold on AH also.

I think the three word game deserves a sticky too. :)

Stickies tend to reduce visibility unless something is in danger of falling off the page. :p

You have a point, I doubt the three word game is going to fall off the page until the thread breaks.

Not yet. Christmas day is so close yet so far away. Achievements are a godsend.
