I have been fish botting a bit on Kronos until today when my account got banned. I'm not sure how the GM pinned me, but this is what I experienced from my side.

I have a laptop right beside me so I can react quickly if there is any problem and I only bot 1-2 hours at a time. Today when my character was fishing with the bot on the coast of Tanaris I get the sound alert when my character was teleported to GM island. I believe I only got teleported there and then back again to my fishing spot within a few seconds. Then I get kicked from the server before I can even say "Hello?" in say. When I contested it saying I was just fishing while watching a movie and got teleported around and banned without warning the lead GM just said "get a better fishbot". I was running the 1.8.9c version of Vanilla botter.

Not sure if you can get anything useful from this, but this is my story at least.

I have a short follow up on this post. I have been legit since my account got banned and have also done a bit of fishing. I have the WoW client on second monitor while watching Youtube etc. so it's as close to botting as possible ;)

At one time my character got flipped around so it was facing land instead of water. If this was a rogue distracting me I didn't hear any sound effect from it (Which I think you should?). My guess is that this was a GM testing to see how I reacted. I had already been fishing in the same spot for two hours straight so they might find that suspicious?

This had already happened at least a couple of times a while before my account got banned. I assumed it was rogues going around sabotaging fish botters and didn't think much of it. Seems it could be one of the methods the GMs use to catch botters, and I was already pegged long before the episode when they teleported me around. What Vanilla botter did at least was to keep attempting to cast fish while staring into land.
