At level 76 Fishing, players can start catching sharks, but only an average of 150 sharks can be caught per hour, yielding 79,650, whereas upwards of 170 can be caught at much higher levels, yielding 90,270. The best place to catch sharks are in the Fishing Guild docks, as you have an invisible +7 Fishing level boost there. There is a nearby bank to store your load of sharks after you catch them. It is recommended to use a Dragon harpoon as it gives the player a 20% faster catch rate compared to the regular harpoon or if you have completed Song of the Elves then you can use the Crystal harpoon which is 12.5% increased from the Dragon harpoon. Additionally, equipping any Rada's blessing will provide 2%/4%/6%/8% respective chance to catch two sharks at once, which yields no additional experience. Spirit flakes held in your inventory give a 50% chance to catch two sharks at the cost of one flake per fish caught (no additional XP is given); this effect does stack with Rada's blessing.

For the money making guide for acquiring raw sharks, as opposed to catching them directly, refer to Catching minnows.
