Fish (Fishing frenzy)

Fish fishing spots are found in the north-western section of the Deep Sea Fishing hub and are used for Fishing frenzy. Players can use the left-click Fling option on them with at least level 94 Fishing. This level can be boosted.

When fishing at these spots no fish are gained, instead the player gains only Fishing experience. Each time that experience is gained from the fishing spot its location changes. Continuously fishing from the spots gives a "streak" bonus of +1% xp boost for every 10 catches (up to 20% xp boost with a soft cap of 200 streak). The streak will be halved if the player is inactive for 6 seconds, and will be lost if the player leaves the deep sea fishing hub or logs out[1]. The Frenzied achievement is awarded upon gaining a 200 streak.

There are 3 fishing spots that players can potentially see. Normal "fling fish" spots which allow players to fling fish and are the most common. There are also two other spots that can spawn based on unknown probabilities. These two spots are the frenzy fish and calm fish fishing spots. Calm fish spots appear less "cloudy" than the others. They do not add to your streak but instead give rapid xp for the time being. Frenzy fish spots appear larger than normal spots and act like normal spots but do not move.
