Infernal eels are members-only fish that can be caught within the city of Mor Ul Rek. Catching them requires a Fishing level of 80, granting 95 Fishing experience per eel caught. In order to catch infernal eels, an oily fishing rod and bait while wearing ice gloves are required. With a hammer, these eels can be cracked open to extract fourteen to twenty Tokkul, one onyx bolt tip, or one to five lava scale shards. Furthermore, there is a relatively high chance of obtaining clue bottles when fishing infernal eels, ranging from approximately 1/917 to 1/829 depending on your fishing level.
Because they are located in the inner city, they can only be caught once a player has proven themselves worthy enough to enter the city by showing a TzHaar guard guarding the entrance a fire cape.
There is an "Eat" option on the eel, which results in the following message in the chatbox: Removing the eel from the lava has caused it to harden. You don't want to test your teeth against one of these.
It is highly recommended to fish infernal eels in the south-easternmost area of the city, as the other two areas may have their fishing spots disappear more often. Fishing infernal eels gives the player around 35,000 Fishing experience per hour.
Upon smashing an infernal eel, there is a 1/16 chance of receiving onyx bolt tips and a 1/12 chance of receiving lava scale shards. Based on a sample size of 4500 infernal eels, you will receive the following amounts per eel: 0.33 lava scale shards, 0.06 onyx bolt tips, and 14 Tokkul. Per eel, the estimated profit is 580.17 coins (not counting the estimated value of 14 Tokkul at 78.93).
When compared to monkfish, the advantage of infernal eels is that no banking is required, it requires less attention and can provide profit for ironmen through onyx bolt tips when fletched and alched, as well as providing Hardcore ironmen and Ultimate ironmen a way to obtain lava scale shards without the dangers of lava dragons. Overall, for regular accounts, infernal eels give lower experience and greater profit.
You can obtain the following when smashing the eel with a hammer.
