Magic Bait is a type of bait that provides the ability to catch any fish from that source regardless of weather, time, or season. It can be attached to a Fiberglass Rod or an Iridium Rod. It can also technically be inserted into a Crab Pot, but it is no better than standard bait as all crab pot fish can be caught anytime in any season in any weather. Bait is always a single-use item. Magic Bait has the same effect on fish bite rate as standard Bait (decreasing biting time by 50%).
20 Magic Bait can be purchased from the shop in Qi's Walnut Room for 5. The recipe to craft Magic Bait can also be purchased for 20.
Each cast uses one piece of bait or one magnet. When all bait is used up, the game pops up a notification saying "You've used your last piece of bait."
For the mobile version, bait can be added to the fishing rod by opening the inventory, then dragging the bait and dropping it on top of the rod.
See the fish location tables for a list of all fish that can be caught in a specific area. As long as the fish can be caught at some point in a specific area, it can be caught anytime by using Magic Bait. Night Market Fish can be caught anytime using Magic Bait in the southwest corner of The Beach. Legendary Fish can be caught anytime in their specific locations by using Magic Bait.
