Requirements and Tools
Before you dive into anglerfish fishing, you’ll need to meet certain requirements and gather essential tools:
- Fishing Level: To start anglerfish fishing, you need a Fishing level of 82.
- Fishing Rod and Sandworms: You’ll need a fishing rod with sandworms as bait. Each anglerfish requires one sandworm.
- Access to Piscarilius House: Ensure you have access to the Piscarilius House in Great Kourend, as anglerfish are primarily found in this region.
Catching Anglerfish: The Basics
Now that you have the prerequisites in place, it’s time to learn how to catch anglerfish:
- Location: Head to the Piscarilius House docks in Great Kourend. This is where you’ll find the fishing spots for anglerfish.
- Equipment: Equip your fishing rod and have a sufficient supply of sandworms in your inventory.
- Fishing Spots: Look for the fishing spots with a “Net” option, indicating they are anglerfish hotspots.
- Fishing Action: Click on a hotspot to start fishing. Your character will cast their net into the water.
- Catching Anglerfish: Wait for a bite. When your character exclaims “I think I have a fish on the line!”, click on the fishing spot again to reel in an anglerfish.
- Banking: Bank your caught anglerfish, as they are stackable and can be caught in large quantities for later use.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can employ advanced strategies to optimize your anglerfish fishing experience:
- High Fishing Level:A higher Fishing level increases your catch rate, so consider leveling up your Fishing skill.
- High-Click Intensity: Maximizing your actions per minute (APM) by quickly clicking on fishing spots can significantly boost your catch rate.
