Deepsea Fishing is an activity on the RuneScape platform that can be accessed by speaking to the NPC called Goomah at the Fishing Guild. You need to select the Travel option to begin. It’s accessible to players who have a fishing level of 68 or higher, as you need it to enter the Fishing Guild. In the following guide, we have listed some worthy and new methods to train your Fishing skill.
Deepsea Fishing offers great experience in the Fishing skill, with various other rewards, Includes your scarce Runescape Gold. The hub is located at the banks of Gielinor. Now, let’s begin with the guide.
• Level 68 (Swarms)
Located in the southwestern corner, the Deepsea Fishing Hub can be approached by players to catch a variety of fishes ranging from Mackerel to Sailfish. The plus point is that you can catch them without having to change your Fishing spot. The specific fish that you’re willing to catch, depends on your Fishing level.
At level 85, you can catch a level 97 requiring Sailfish, which is another benefit of approaching this activity. At level 68, you can start by heading towards a Magic Fishing Net, which is known to be a safety deposit box, located north of the Swarms.
• Level 68 (Minnow Shoals)
There are two Fishing spots, located south of the Deepsea Fishing Hub. They contain Magnet Shoals that can be caught without any bait. Magnetic Minnows are known to stack in your inventory, so they are an excellent choice to AFK. Unlike the other fishes that can be caught, they are baited for Magical Fishing spots. You are required to have three hundred Magnets for the conversion of every bait. First, right-click and select the ‘Good’ option to create the bait, and make sure you don’t left-click, or else you’ll end up eating one. The boat that you have arrived in can be used as a bank chest.
• Level 68 or 91 (Jellyfish)
There are a total of nine Jellyfish spots, located in the northern section of the Deepsea Fishing Hub. Some of them are Green Blubber Jellyfish, requiring level 68 Fishing, while others are Blue Blubber Jellyfish spots, requiring level 91 Fishing. They can also sometimes be electrified in either of the two variants, so purchase a de-buff stack when you catch an electrified Jellyfish. When the stack count reaches ten, you’ll be stunned and unable to move until the cooldown timer is finished.
The timer lasts for approx. two minutes, but if you try to catch an electrified variant, the timer will reset and stun you again. You can cut down the timer through Deux piles, which acts as a de-buff.
• Level 79 (Magical Fishing Spot)
Magical Fishing spots are scattered around the Deepsea Fishing Hub. You need to throw bait into the water (Magnetic Minnows), and it will temporarily become a spot of your choosing; however, it depends on the bait used. You have the options to also use Manta Rays, Sea Turtles, or Great White Sharks as baits. The spot takes approx. fifty fishes to reset, so keep an eye out for whenever that happens.
• Level 94 (Fishing Frenzy)
The hub is at the Fishing Frenzy activity, which is on the western section of the Deepsea area. You won’t get any items while fishing there, but the XP rewarded is quite hefty, which means it’s one of the best places to earn the highest XP per hour.
The strategy is to Fly Fish within the giant net from the neighboring Fishing Grounds. For every cleared Fishing spot, you’ll get a slip, which vanishes over a period of time. Fishing continuously in the area will grant you +1% XP for every decade.
You need to first click on the Fishing Spots, and then wait until it vanishes. After that, you have to repeat the process. Your overall range can be far above 200, but your boost will stand at 20%. Stopping for over six seconds will cut your bonuses down by half, and it’ll remain the same until you start catching again. Besides that, you will complete the Frenzied achievement at a streak of 200.
• Level 97 (Sailfish)
On the northeastern section of the Deepsea Fishing Hub, you will find three Sailfish Spots. One of them is a Swift location, which means that you can catch more Sailfish there, than the other two spots. The only drawback is that the spot shifts quite often. You can also sometimes find a Calm Sailfish spot, which lasts longer and permits you to catch more fish. There’s a convenient bank spot west of the Jellyfish spot.

Successfully completing the event will grant you a 10% chance of obtaining additional fish for thirty minutes.

A Whirlpool spawn will trigger, where you will have the access to interact with it in two ways. The first way is that you can fish from it to obtain different catches, depending on your Fishing level, and the second way is to toss coins in it. The coins will be removed from the game, and you’ll earn any one of the five titles depending on the amount you have donated. Once the event is over, everyone at the Hub will get a Fishing Buff for the next thirty minutes.
