Anyone encountered a fishing job where the mark's item was 0% to steal?

I just got one. Is there any way of getting that item without killing the mark? (Hence failing the quest).

Pots and Equipment, as well as perks.
If the topic's dead, it's my fault.
I never really was on your side.

I had +80% to pickpocket with pots/equipment, as well as around 70% pickpocketing skill. (No perks).

I ran into that too. Had to steal a ring from Mjoll. No matter what I did my chances of success were 0%. I tried pots, I put on some +Pickpocket gear, nothing worked. Even when she was asleep it was still 0%.

I eventually just went back and cancelled the mission to get a different one. You don't lose anything for cancelling the mission. You just get a minor verbal scolding and then you can start a new one immediately after.

What is the item? All kitted up, I had a 14% chance to pickpocket a gold diamond necklace, once.

Also, if you have sneak/pickpocket gear and pickpocket potions, what are the stats on your gear/potions.

Also, you are sure that you are not visible to the mark? If you are hidden, I believe you get a bonus.

If you really can't figure a way around it, you can always ask your Delvin to cancel the quest for you... and just take another one.

i think its a glitch. i have 68 pickpocket and was trying to place a daedric arrow into one of the thief archers pocket. glass and ebony arrows both have 90% chance but for some reason daedric and falmor has 0. i have cheated my way with all the perks and still the same. so i went ahead and place the daedric with 0% and success... didn't get caught at all.

Actually I think it's because they have the item equipped and if you lack the top level Pickpocket perk (Perfect Touch) it's not possible in the normal way.

However I did find a loophole! If you Unrelenting Force shout them to knock them down you'll be able to quickly pickpocket it before they stand up. Pretty funny!
