Crab pots are floated on the shores of bodies of water (lakes, ponds, rivers, or the ocean) and primed with Bait in order to catch fish. Players with the Luremaster profession don't need to refill the pots with bait.

They are very useful for increasing your fishing level without actually having to fish. Fish caught with Crab Pots (Lobsters, crabs, etc.) also count towards the Mother Catch Achievement.

Crab pots can be crafted, or purchased for 1,500g at Willy's Fish Shop once you've reached fishing skill level 3. Three Crab Pots are the reward for completing the Crab Pot Bundle in the Fish Tank.

The day after placing a crab pot, the following items can be found in it:
