    The Fishing class is obtainable in Limsa Lominsa. All that's required to fish is a rod and some appropriate bait for your fishing location. The description of the bait will say where it should be used. The types are Ocean, Freshwater (lakes, rivers etc), Dunefishing (sand) and Skyfishing (Yep, that's a thing!). Each fish caught will use up a bait, so I suggest you stock up on them if you're planning to grind this.

    Attach the bait, cast your line and wait for the line to tug. Your controller will vibrate, which makes it very afk'able. If you're watching the screen, you'll see the end of the rod being pulled downwards. It's easier to see with the Cast Light ability. Since all fish is caught at the same speed, there's no specific place that's ideal for this, so just park up somewhere and relax. If you don't do levequests, you should be able to get this (or close to it at least) before you hit 50.

    This trophy is pretty self-explanatory. The quickest way is to fish just outside the Fishermens Guild in Limsa Lominsa. You can buy bait cheap from the marketplace.

    However something to be very very careful of if you intend to complete the trophy with minimal repetition.

    DO NOT fish outside of the original three starting regions. The trophy takes your overall count from the in game achievements and since there are no achievements for Mor Dhana (spelling may be off) any fish caught in this region DO NOT count.

    I had to fish up to 1,300 times for my trophy to pop because of this.

    Chojin22000Sorry I didn't get so far as to unlock Spear fishing to check this out. But check your in game achievements. If the fishing counts increase for that region, then they count towards the trophy.
