In Minethings, bait can be used to catch fish, which can be used for certain melds. To catch fish, you have to be a Fisherman. Bait can be aquired by mining items in a bait mine; different colors of bait catch one of its' corresponding color fish. Fish can be either sold or made into, and can be very profitable as long as you don't get pirated. Also, while fishing, you have a chance to find treasure from sunken ships, meaning fishing can be very profitable if you find something good. For more on fishing, follow the link here.

Bait

  • BaitL1.png Lure: Very useful because it catches fish that are all sellable, and all worth more than the actual lure. Useful for quick profits, and better chances at treasure.
  • BaitL2.png Ballyhoo: Although it has better profits, it takes longer to sell its fish, meaning its good for long term profits, in combination with lures.
  • BaitL3.png Mullet: Not very useful, becuase the only sellable fish you can catch with it is the wahoo, otherwise, it isn't worth buying.
  • BaitL4.png Herring. Not many of these have been discovered, although in theory, threshers could be sold quite easily, although the other red fish would be extremely hard to sell, meaning that if you ever get a chance to buy a herring, don't.
  • BaitL5.png Eel: The most recent discovery from the Bait mine. This bait is very rare, and there have only been two ever found.
  • BaitL6.png [undiscovered]: The orange bait hasn't been discovered, and is extremely rare.

All bait is acquired from a bait mine, which you can either purchase with credits from the shop, or with gold from other players. The bait mine is located in Daigard, which can only be accessed by ships.

Treasure

While fishing, you may find that some of your bait has been replaced with items. This is called finding treasure, and it happens while your a fisherman with bait, going over a shipwreck. If that shipwreck happened to have items, your bait will be replaced by them. Usually you'll just get junk and end up wasting your bait, but occasionally, you can get things like cannons, fish, and weapons, which can be very profitable.
