When there's a black shadow in the water, you can surf above it to meet a Pokemon (this is called Surfing Spot)

Fishing spot refers to fishing on that black shadow. You can find the fully-evolved form from the pokemon you can fish in that area
So, if you can fish a Poliwag / Poliwhirl, by using the Fishing Spot, you can caught a Politoed / Poliwrath with 5% chance

A "surfing spot" is where you can actually travel across the water using a Pokemon that knows Surf.

A "fishing spot" is where you can cast a line using the fishing rod Key Item to "catch" a Pokemon.

Yup just like rustling grass and dust clouds.
I used one of those spots in the water to catch the
Red Eye Basculine.
Which I think is rare cause the one I see most often is
the Blue Eye Basculine.

That is very good to know.
I didn't know about that 5% chance to catch the fully evolved form.
Two thumbs up!
