I like and welcome the change to the new fish traps with having to place bait into them. This will really slow down the amount of oil one clan can get in a reasonable amount of time. This might not fix the problem entirely with the Derketo Shrine shield being able to be created and spammed over and over but it will at least slow it down while you hopefully figure out a permanent problem to turning oil into manifestations. But beyond that, just the pure aesthetics of having to place bait in the traps is nice.
However, I think you should not use bugs. There should be a new crafting item. Stinkbait. Bread, honey and dried berries all mixed together to It will have a good hour and a half rot span. Max stack is 20, so that is just about 24 hours if you put a max stack in. Which is perfect, you bait your traps when you log in and harvest the previous days catch. Which is what you would do in real life, so that way you don’t have to baby sit with food, it’s easy enough to make and with the new fertilizer changes you will be able to grow your own leavening agent in base and have a farm so it won’t be that bad. This change should also incorporate a improved fish trap. It can be a bit costly, I was thinking layered silk and insulated wood with some star metal. But it will be nice and big and have lot’s of room. Something along the lines of this I am thinking
