Fishing bait detail.png

Fishing bait is used with the fishing rod. It is used to fish in any fishing spot as long as the spot has the Bait Fishing Spot option.

Each catch uses up one piece of bait, so take this in to account if you wish to catch a lot of fish.

Fishing bait can also be used for barbarian fishing, replacing feathers as bait.

Using fishing bait with a fishing rod, you can catch the following types of fish:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During the quest Recipe for Disaster, as well as Issue 25 of the God Letters, fishing bait is revealed to be maggots. This explains why decaying zombies and many other undead creatures drop fishing bait.
