So far I've caught good Pokemon with the super rod but I haven't explored every map using the super rod. Where do you recommend using the super rod?

A notable fishing spot might have Pokemon that can't be encountered elsewhere, hold useful items, have high-level Pokemon, etc.

How do you define "good Pokemon"?
Do you mean anything that isn’t a magikarp and tentacool?
I have changed the description. Hopefully it gives a basis for an answer. This is not a perfectly well defined question but there should be enough guidance for an expert to give relevant advice.
I don't think you can fish items in Crystal.
I think Fizz meant Pokemon that hold items, key being luvdisc I bet
I did a pretty major edit on my answer.

This answer assumes you agree with Fizz's edits. If you don't, please tell me and I'll convert this answer to a comment.
