Types of bait[edit | edit source]
Shrimp[edit | edit source]
Shrimp are primarily used to catch Cod, with a decent chance to get Pollock or Haddock. Contrary to the in-game description, it does not provide the most varied catch; Crab does.
Shrimp is the most expensive bait.
Crab[edit | edit source]
Crab are used to catch all types of fish. Crab is the only form of bait where no single fish has a 50% or above chance of being caught, making it the most varied bait.
Crab is the cheapest bait.
Krill[edit | edit source]
Krill are primarily used to catch Redfish, and the only bait that has more than a 5% chance of doing so.
Mackerel[edit | edit source]
Mackerel are primarily used to catch Pollock, with a decent chance to get Cod or Haddock. Mackerel are unique in that they can be fished rather than just bought, so a vessel capable of efficiently catching Mackerel can then use them as free bait for their lines, and sell the rest.
Comparison Tables[edit | edit source]
See tables below for details on which bait is best for each type of fish as well as the cost based on length (number of hooks) of the lines.
|Bait \ Fish||Cod||Pollack||Haddock||Redfish|
|Bait \ Cost||Pr. Hook||250||500||1,000||2,000||5,000||10,000|
|Krill||6 kr||1,500 kr||3,000 kr||6,000 kr||12,000 kr||30,000 kr||60,000 kr|
|Mackerel||5 kr||1,250 kr||2,500 kr||5,000 kr||10,000 kr||25,000 kr||50,000 kr|
|Shrimp||8 kr||2,000 kr||4,000 kr||8,000 kr||16,000 kr||40,000 kr||80,000 kr|
|Crab||4 kr||1,000 kr||2,000 kr||4,000 kr||8,000 kr||20,000 kr||40,000 kr|
Additional notes[edit | edit source]
- All baits except krill have a 5% chance of catching Redfish.
- No bait is particularly good for catching Haddock. The best, mackerel, only has a 25% chance, with the other having either 15 or 20% chance.
