Raw bass detail.png

A raw bass can be caught by players with a Fishing level of 46 or higher using a big fishing net at a Net/Harpoon fishing spot. Doing so yields 100 Fishing experience per bass caught. They can be cooked into bass with a Cooking level of 43.

It is also possible for players to catch a big bass which can be stuffed by the taxidermist in Canifis and subsequently displayed in the Skill Hall of one's player-owned house.

Players wearing an activated ring of charos can trade a raw bass to the Fossegrimen located at her sacrifice altar south of Rellekka as a replacement for a raw shark to enchant their lyre.

Bass are not frequently fished, as it is a bit unpredictable as to how many the player will get in one haul, and are frequently caught with items like caskets and seaweed.
