Raw rocktail detail

Raw rocktail is a fish that is found in the Living Rock Caverns. Rocktails require a Fishing level of at least 90 and give 380 experience per catch. Players require a normal fishing rod and Living minerals as bait to catch Rocktails. The Living minerals can be obtained by mining a living rock creature's dead remains, or they can be bought from other players and the Grand Exchange.

The Living Rock Caverns, however, are quite dangerous. Players can be attacked by aggressive level 92 monsters. Fishing in the official world for Living Rock Caverns (84) can be safer, as the large number of players there will provide safety in numbers. Any of the shark outfits or the magic golem outfit can be worn to remove aggression from the living rock creatures. As of 11 April 2012, it is possible to receive a strange rock by fishing rocktails.

Fishing rocktails gives between 40,000 experience an hour, with level 90 Fishing, and 45,000 experience per hour, with level 99 Fishing. A player with level 99 Fishing can catch around 120 raw rocktails an hour, giving a profit of 386,760 coins per hour (not accounting for the cost of signs of the porter).

  • Rocktail are very similar to RuneScape aquanites, and the real-life Angler fish, as they have a bio-luminescent esca (fleshy-like stem with a bulb that emits natural light) on their heads.
  • A player levelling a fishing rod-o-matic or augmented crystal fishing rod by catching raw rocktails would need to catch 894.7 rocktails to reach level 10, or 1,827.8 to reach level 12. This would cost 300,720 or 614,208 coins, and give a profit of 2,884,585 or 5,891,644 coins.
