Raw herring detail

Raw herring is an item that is obtained through the Fishing skill by using a fishing rod with fishing bait on a fishing spot with the option Bait. Catching a raw herring grants 30 Fishing experience. It can be cooked into herring with a Cooking level of 5, granting 50 Cooking experience.

This fish can be caught at level 10 Fishing and Cooked at level 5 Cooking.

One of RuneScape's Monty Python references is revealed if players use a herring (cooked or raw) with any tree in RuneScape (except the one outside the Draynor Village bank, in which the security guard is hiding). The text will say This is not the mightiest tree in the forest, in reference to one of the lines in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. If used with the Grand Tree, the text replies It can't be done! in reference to another line in the movie.
