The Deep Sea Fishing hub is a platform located off the coast of the Fishing Guild, north of East Ardougne. It is therefore required to have a minimum of level 68 Fishing to access as this is needed to enter the guild. Fishing boosts can be used to enter the area, but once your fishing falls below 68 you will be booted out. It can be accessed by talking to Goomah inside the guild, or by entering an appropriately attuned skill portal in Max Guild.

Fishing[edit | edit source]

The hub hosts a variety of different skilling activities, ranging from low-intensity minnow catching (stackable and required to make bait for manta ray, sea turtles and great white sharks each using 300 minnow respectively to create a fishing spot which allows the gathering of 50 fish) to high-intensity frenzy spots which offers to be one of the highest experience rate activities for fishing training in the game as a reward for paying attention. It is also host to a few exclusive fishing spots which are used to catch sailfish, green blubber and blue blubber jellyfish.

A variety of random events can also spawn, which include a jellyfish invasion, whirlpool, sea monsters and travelling merchants. Completing these events gives a reward, with possible rewards including but not limited to a 5-10% boost to xp for 10–30 minutes.

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 23 May 2022 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue where fishermen at the Deep Sea Fishing Hub did not have their Fishing Rod cast. Slackers!
  • patch 7 February 2022 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue where players could disconnect if they had a Waterfiend familiar summoned when using a magical Fishing spot in Deep Sea Fishing.
  • patch 9 August 2021 (Update):
    • Characters and objects will no longer float in the Deep Sea Fishing Hub.
  • ninja 14 December 2020 (Update):
    • To account for the 'Bait and Switch' Relic's effect, the separate 'Deposit all' options for different fish have been consolidated to one option in the Deep Sea Fishing Hub and the VIP skilling area and Port Banks and Bank deposit box.
      • The Fishing Hub now also has these options on the Bank boat and rowboat, as well as the magical nets.
    • The NPC who combines your Jellyfish at the Deep Sea Fishing Hub has been given a name, a backstory, and a minimap icon. It's still gross, though.
  • ninja 9 November 2020 (Update):
    • Partially eaten Jellyfish can now be combined together using War's 'Decant' option, or with the help of a friendly fisherman near the jellyfish spots in the Deep Sea Fishing hub. Please do not think too hard about how we combine the jellyfish.
  • patch 9 March 2020 (Update):
    • A "Deposit All Raw Fish" option has been added to the magical nets at the Deep Sea Fishing hub.
      • This option will deposit any raw fish in your inventory but won't deposit anything else, such as urns or Deep Sea Fishing hub boosts. This doesn't include magnetic minnows, however, as they can still be turned into bait.
  • patch 12 March 2018 (Update):
    • The whirlpool at the Deep Sea Fishing hub now tracks title progress correctly.
    • A 'Bang' option has been added to the ladders near the NPC Greg 'Groggy' Herring in the Deep Sea Fishing hub so that players can interact with him in Java.
    • The Fishing icon has been added to the mouse over on all the fishing spots in the Deep Sea Fishing hub.
    • The anti-griefing area has been mapped down at the Deep Sea Fishing hub, so cannons and similar items can no longer be placed.
    • The left-click 'Use' option has been removed from the entry rowboat and replaced with the default left-click 'Bank'.
    • Two previously problematic squares in the Fishing Frenzy area of the Deep Sea Fishing hub now display the Fishing Frenzy UI as expected.
