Big bass detail.png

A big bass is an abnormally large bass caught while big net fishing at any big net/harpoon fishing spot. Since players can only get it while fishing for bass, it requires 46 Fishing to catch. Players have a 1/1000 chance per bass caught to instead receive a big bass.[1] Catching one prompts the message "You catch an enormous bass!" instead of the usual "You catch a bass."

It can be mounted in a Skill Hall in a player-owned house. Before it can be mounted, it must be stuffed by the Taxidermist in Canifis, where she will charge 1,000 coins and return a stuffed big bass to the player. They can then mount the fish using 2 oak planks. When players take it to the Taxidermist, she will exclaim "That's a mighty fine sea bass you've caught there."

A big bass may be cooked into a regular bass for the standard cooking experience.


Rada's blessing and spirit flakes are reported by Jagex Moderators not to provide an extra big bass.[2] However, players have reported this to occur, likely due to a bug.[3]
