Fishing lobsters at a fairly high level between level 40 and 62 will bring players, especially non-members, a good chunk of money. However, it is not recommended to fish lobsters if a player can fish monkfish because lobsters only bring about 23,310 to 69,930 per hour assuming between 111 and 333 lobsters are caught.

After the Swan Song quest, members can fish monkfish. This is noticeably quicker than catching lobsters or swordfish, but usually only higher-level players are there due to the requirements of Swan Song. Nonetheless, free players at Musa Point may bank their catches at the bank deposit box at Port Sarim, but it will cost around 540 coins, which will slightly lower the profit, assuming nine roundtrips are made every hour.
