Minnows are available to catch on the minnow platform; having no use on their own, they are exchanged with Kylie Minnow for noted raw sharks, at a rate of 40 minnows for 1 shark. As minnows are stackable, there is no banking or inventory management required.

Catching minnows requires some level of attention, as they move around at a fixed rate of 15 seconds. Occasionally, a flying fish will also appear and eat minnows directly from the player's inventory so long as they continue to fish there. In contrast to most fishing spots, minnows always move 1 tile in a clockwise motion, allowing players to anticipate the next location.

With raw sharks worth 520, players can expect to earn between 195,000 and 325,000 an hour based on the player's fishing level. Equipping the Rada's blessing from Kourend & Kebos Diary gives up to 8% chance to catch twice the amount of minnows (no XP is given for the additional catch).
