What about a fishing net in Minecraft? Imagine that u just throw it to the water and after a few seconds u will get for example 5 fishes. U wouldn't to care about if the fish is hooked, u just wait or go away and then u just pick the net up and get fishes. It would be like 4 blocks big and it would float on the surface. Crafting recipe could be like 4 or 8 strings around a bread as bait. After the fishes will get caugh in the net, it will sink a little bit.
I'm not opposed to the idea, but it should take longer than a few seconds to get 5 fish, considering it can take a while to get a single fish fishing normally. If this allows you to set it, forget it, then return and get multiple fish it should take a better portion of a day in MC to get 5 fish, especially since you can place multiple nets. I'd also say it should have a higher chance of getting junk and can't get treasure items, for the same reason.

so arithmetic mean for the one fish to catch is 24.3 seconds (not 100% accurate, it's random attempts), so for full fish net it might take 2 minutes.
From that 10 attempts I got: 2x Pufferfishes
3x Raw cod
3x Raw salmons
1x Tripwire hook
but fish net would be superior fishing item then fish rot with the bread bait, so it would be higher chance to get eatable fishes there and once of for example 3 attempts u will get 3 junks and 3 fishes. (just for example, it might be smaller "profit").
