The minnowman is a man who appears at the Deep Sea Fishing hub as an extra event. He will ask for a different amount of magnetic minnow every time, and if a player gives him the required amount, he will give them a Fishing experience reward when he leaves. He stays for approximately two minutes.
The minnowman will spawn at the entrance where players will appear when they enter the hub and walk to the minnow area while repeatedly asking for spare minnows in the overhead chat.
