Experience rates scale with Fishing and Hunter levels, however only Fishing influences profit per hour. These rates assume high concentration and 90 Fishing or higher. The rewarded fish scale with Fishing level. This money making method is not viable at a low Fishing level, due to the high cost of drift nets and the low value of the captured fish.

With 70 or higher Hunter, up to 110k Hunter experience can be gained per hour. With 70 or higher Fishing, up to 82k Fishing experience can be gained per hour.

Drift net fishing is used to catch fish shoals in Fossil Island's Underwater area. With 44 Hunter, 47 Fishing, and a drift net, clicking on the drift net anchors sets the trap. When a fish shoal swims towards the net, it may get stuck in the net. Players must choose whether or not to actively chase fish shoals to speed up the process. A merfolk trident or trident of the seas increase the chance of scaring fish shoals into the net.

Once ten fish shoals get stuck in the trap, the net becomes full, and must be checked. This yields ten raw fish, destroying the drift net in the process. The fish can be banked in the interface for 5 numulite each.

Ceto must be spoken to in order to enter the activity, located just north of the anchor rope. 200 numulites can be paid to gain access for a full day or 20,000 numulites can be paid to gain permanent access.

Annette, located in the underwater area, will store up to 2,000 drift nets.
