The Golden tench is a rare equippable fish obtained from aerial fishing at Lake Molch, caught at a rate of 1/20,000.[1] When a player receives the tench, a red message in the chatbox will state The cormorant has brought you a very strange tench.

Similar to the rubber chicken and other fun weapons, equipping it allows players to "Whack" other players. It can also be stored in a magic wardrobe within a player-owned house Costume Room.

Unlike other catches in Lake Molch, the Golden tench can't be cut using a knife. However, players can speak to Alry the Angler to exchange it for 100 Molch pearls.
