Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. the patch to add things and fix glitches that sims creator did

With the new pond options and stocking fishing you cannot fish with bait. The list will pull up but they are all greyed out and will not let you select any. The fish here sign also needs to be in the water to actually stock the pond.

FishWithBait.pngThis is my pond. I don't know if that matters. If you have any work arounds let me know! I'm playing all packs. I just refreshed my files to kill the no bills bug. I tried with a maxed skill angler as a test.

I can not fish with bait either. But fishing without goes well.

@aewilkerson14 I was having the same problem, but I just discovered that if I go fishing in the base game world, I can fish with bait!

@aewilkerson14 I've had the same problem as well [took a long break, but got back into the game] and this was the first pond I had put on my Sims property.

I have this too. I can only fish with bait on a community lot not at a household pond.
