|Examine||A mask that lets you fish for compliments.|
The Fish mask is a discontinued item that appeared as a prize from the Squeal of Fortune. When released it was an uncommon reward, but it later was moved to the rare slot. The item was removed from the Squeal of Fortune on 28 September 2012. It was the first tradeable cosmetic item from the Squeal of Fortune.
The fish mask does not require any stats to wield and is purely decorative. When wearing this mask and fishing, fish will occasionally give the player compliments. Players receive no fishing benefits from this mask. Right-clicking the mask and selecting "Bubbles" allows the player to blow bubbles from the mask for 2 seconds.

These are some of the compliments that the fish give you while fishing with a fish mask on. The compliments appear as chat above the fishing spot; other players are able to see this chat as well. There are 25 compliments that the fish mask can give you.
_____ is your character's name.
- _____ casts his net widely.

- _____ makes me smile.

- _____... You are my inspiration.

- You cast a mean hook, _____.
- You rock my world, _____.
- You've done this before, haven't you, _____?
- You've got the best fish, ______.
- You're gonna need a bigger inventory, _____.
- The mouth is open on the character model, but the mouth of the mask's chathead model moves, in a similar fashion to the camel mask.
- The bubble blowing emote is one of the few emotes that can be used while the character is walking or running, the others being the use of a Bubble maker, the yawn emote, Confetti and when ringing a Slayer Bell. However, the emote can also be used while performing other tasks such as teleporting, offering at a POH altar, fishing, cooking, etc.
- Players could also blow bubbles while resting; however, the bubbles remained in the same spot as if the player were standing. This feature is no longer available, but a similar way you could do this is when you teleport and blow the bubbles making the bubbles come out as if you were standing.
- While fishing, player can blow bubbles without interrupting fish catching. However, bubbles won't follow the head up and down, they float still above like in the resting glitch.
- There was a glitch at one point that allowed any free player to claim the mask despite the message appearing. It has since been patched in a hidden update.
- The phrase, "You're gonna need a bigger inventory, _____. " , one of the compliments, is a reference to the movie "Jaws".
- While wearing this mask while fishing in the rock pools during the Summer Beach Party, Reyna was the one giving the player compliments instead of the fish.
- The fish mask was the first new discontinued rare item since RuneScape Classic. This was despite Jagex's previous strong stance against re-creating similar items to partyhats, after seeing their effects on the RuneScape economy.
