|Examine||15% chance to bait a whopper fish, gaining additional Fishing experience even though you won't land it. Lasts 3 hours.|
The whopper-baiting scrimshaw is an item that can be made with the Fletching skill at level 85 once all 4 scroll pieces of whopper-baiting have been retrieved from the player-owned port, using 10 ancient bones. It requires 70 Fishing to be worn.
The scrimshaw can be activated on and off for a total of 3 hours after which it degrades to dust.
When equipped, it offers a 15% chance at increased experience while Fishing by hooking a larger-than-normal fish (which is not caught). When the effect activates, it will announce in your chatfeed, "You gain additional Fishing experience thanks to your scrimshaw, even though the whopper got away". Fish that get away do not count towards a Daily Challenge.
This effect works when fishing at the Prifddinas waterfall.
