Minnow detail

Minnow are members-only fish that can be caught at Kylie Minnow's fishing platform at the Fishing Guild. They require a small fishing net with at least level 82 Fishing, without boosts, to be caught, granting 26.5 Fishing experience per catch of minnow. These catches consist of between 10-14 minnow.

The platform may only be accessed after showing Kylie the full angler's outfit and having completed the Fishing Contest quest.

Flying fish

A flying fish gobbles up the player's minnow.

Minnow fishing spots move around at a fixed rate of 15 seconds, more rapidly than other forms of net fishing. Players can use a synced interval timer for an auditory signal notifying the player of the spot moving. In addition, occasionally a flying fish will appear which will eat minnow directly from the player's inventory as long as they keep fishing there. A flying fish will only appear after a fishing spot has changed, if there isn't one already there.

Minnow can be exchanged for raw sharks by trading with Kylie Minnow at a rate of 40 minnows for one raw shark.

  • Upon release, the minnow's inventory icon was much larger (Minnow 5 v1). Due to player complaints that the number of minnows they had in their inventory was difficult to see, it was given a graphical update a week later in an update on 13 July 2017.
  • There was a bug where ghasts from the Mort Myre Swamp could rot a stack of minnows and turn it into rotten food. This was fixed in the same update.
