Bait can be bought at the Fish Shop for Gold.png5g each, crafted, grown in a Worm Bin, or found in Fishing Treasure Chests. Thirty bait are the reward for completing the River Fish Bundle in the Fish Tank.

Bait cannot be used with the Bamboo Pole. Only the Fiberglass Rod (unlocked at Fishing skill level 2) or the Iridium Rod (unlocked at Fishing skill level 6) can use bait.


Requires: Fiberglass Rod or Iridium Rod

To attach the bait to your rod, left-click the bait in your backpack (or right-click to pick up a single one), then right-click the rod.

On an Xbox controller, press A on the bait to select the whole stack (or X to pick up a single one), then X to attach to the rod.

Only one bait will be consumed per use. The remaining bait can be detached by right-clicking the rod in your backpack or pressing X on the Controller.


Using bait with your fishing rod reduces the delay before a nibble by 50%.
