Post Chain fishing?

How long does it take to increase your shiny rate? Also I already have a shiny charm and so far my highest chain is 140 and still no shinies.

I got one in like 40 chains. So it cant be too hard. you probably just arent fishing in the right way.

If i recall correctly. You cant move, you cant miss a catch, and its best to fish in an area that has more walls to it. The more walls in the area the higher chance of catching a shiny.

Get something with the suction cups ability and a smoke ball, then put this Pokemon in the FRONT of your party, suction cups almost guarantees you a Pokemon each time you cast, and smoke ball gives you guaranteed run aways if you want to save time by not battling, and if I remember correctly, running away doesn't break a chain.

EDIT: I looked at a few sources and they all say you can run away without breaking the chain!

Yep I had suction cups when i chained fished 140 times (really potent stuff XD) it also works on sticky hold. But yeah still no shinies
