A harpoon is a tool used in the Fishing skill to fish in fishing spots with the "Harpoon Fishing spot" option. Harpoons can be used at Cage/Harpoon fishing spots and Net/Harpoon fishing spots. A harpoon is on the tool belt automatically and can be used indefinitely.
Harpoons can be obtained from all fishing shops, excluding Hank's Fishing Shop in Lumbridge, Fernahei's Fishing Hut in Shilo Village, and the Fishing Guild Shop in the Fishing Guild, for 45 coins. Harpoons can also be obtained from a spawn inside the Fishing Guild by the exit door, or as a drop from dagannoths.
The harpoon is also the tertiary ingredient in infusing Ibis pouches.
The closest bank to a fishing store that sells 1000 harpoons is in Catherby.
Harpoon spots[edit | edit source]
At Cage/Harpoon fishing spots, players with level 35 or higher Fishing can catch tuna for 80 experience each while harpooning. When players reach level 50 Fishing, they can also catch swordfish for 100 experience each when harpooning at Cage/Harpoon fishing spots. Members who have reached level 76 Fishing can harpoon sharks for 110 experience each at Net/Harpoon fishing spots.
When a player is able to catch two types of fish with a harpoon (for example able to catch both tuna and swordfish), players will typically catch more of the fish which requires a lower fishing level (in this case tuna) than the fish that requires a higher fishing level to catch (the swordfish).

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- A real harpoon is attached to a rope, but in RuneScape, your character simply stabs or throws it. This is technically spear-fishing.
