Examine Useful for catching lots of fish

A Big Net is an item used in the Fishing skill to catch certain types of fish. To use a big net, the player must have it in their inventory and then click on a "net / harpoon" fishing spot. The spots with "net / bait" options are for using the small net and catching different types of fish. The spots are unique and require use of the correct net. Players using a big net can catch between 0 and 4 items per attempt.

The following fish can be caught with a big net:

Image Item Level Experience Fatigue SU (%) # / Sleep Cooking lvl
Raw Mackerel Raw mackerel 16 20 320 (0.4266%) 235 10
Raw Cod Raw cod 23 45 720 (0.96%) 105 18
Raw Bass Raw bass 46 100 1600 (2.133%) 47 43
