Fishing is the gathering skill for survival and does not count towards your 3 skill limit.  It is useful for finding artifacts, fish, and chests and can be done in any source of standing/running liquid (water, lava, acid, etc).

Lures

Lures significantly improve your chances of catching fish.  Each one does something different and you will continue to use them as you level until you get 300 in Fishing and craft a Lucky Fishing Pole.
