Golden fish are way too rare

I am not exaggerating when I say that I have caught over 18,000 fish with a golden lure active the entire time, and I have not seen a single exceptional golden fish. As far as gold fish go, I've caught around 500 commons, 33 rares, and 0 exceptionals. I was beginning to wonder if they were bugged, or if the exceptional fish were just broken. Less than 1 in 18,000 is just a little too rare, if you ask me.

    and even if they were not as rare, 100k is too little when you see how much mesos others are making in other ways..

    I mean, I don't think they necessarily need to make you any money. Music is the thing that fishing is most comparable to, and music doesn't give any money whatsoever.

    I'm really just in it for the trophies. But, at this rate, I feel like I'll get the trophy for 100,000 fish before I get any for gold fish. :(
