After earning 100% Piscarilius favour, players can fish anglerfish off the beach shore north of the main docks. Sandworms can be purchased from Tynan's Fishing Supplies nearby or the Grand Exchange, but the latter is more expensive and might take longer.

Since sandworms have a floor price of 90 coins and can be sold as much as 135 each or higher by Tynan, it is recommended to buy one Sandworms pack at a time. Doing so will allow his stock to replenish just in time and keep the price at 90 each. Otherwise, additional coins will be needed to cover inflationary costs.

Players can expect to catch between 75 and 150 anglerfish each hour predicted with Fishing level. Thus, profits range from 92,700 to 185,400.

Equipping Rada's blessing will grant the player a chance to catch two fish at once while equipped. This % chance scales up to 8% based on the level of the blessing. This will increase the number of fish caught per hour. Furthermore, the use of spirit flakes will also increase the number of fish caught per hour by 50%.

A fish barrel can be used to double the time needed before banking as the barrel can hold 28 anglerfish. This also helps to compensate for the increased yield from Rada's blessing and spirit flakes.
