There are 5 main types of fishing spots in RuneScape: Net/Bait, Lure/Bait, Cage/Harpoon, and Net/Harpoon (members-only) and Harpoon/Net (after Swan Song, members-only). Net/Bait spots require a small fishing net to net fish whilst Net/Harpoon spots require a big fishing net to net fish. Harpoon/Net requires a small fishing net. Most fishing spots take a minimum of 280 ticks to move, and a maximum of 530 ticks. However, Karambwan fishing spots never move and Anglerfish fishing spots last longer than most other spots.
Each spot can catch the following fish:
|Style||Catches||F2P Spots||P2P Spots|
|Harpoon/Net (small)||Tuna (Karamja)
There are also Barbarian fishing spots at Otto's Grotto and south of Mount Quidamortem where Leaping fish can be caught. Additional types of spots can be found at the Piscatoris Fishing Colony, where different kinds of fish can be caught. There are also 'ominous fishing spots' at Mudskipper Point, but these cannot be fished from.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The fishing spots are treated as NPCs by the game engine, as evident by their text colour.
- When a fishing spot changes location, if clicked on as it changes, the player will run to the new location to start fishing. This is most likely because the fishing spot teleports itself rather than disappearing.
- Several inaccessible fishing spots can be seen near the Chaos druids in Edgeville Dungeon. They are not treated as NPCs unlike other fishing spots.
