The Magnet is a type of bait that doubles the chance of finding Treasure Chests (30% chance instead of 15% base). It can be crafted, purchased from Willy's Fish Shop for Gold.png1,000g after reaching Fishing Skill Level 9, or received as one of the prizes for winning the ice fishing contest at the Festival of Ice. It can also be received as a gift from Willy at the Feast of the Winter Star.

Unlike other bait, magnets cannot be used in Crab Pots. Like other bait, the magnet is a one-time use item.

Notes

While the Magnet can be bought at the Fish Shop for Gold.png1,000g, crafting is a much cheaper option. Since 5 Iron Ore and 1 Coal cost Gold.png900g at the Blacksmith, the crafting cost is only Gold.png300g per magnet.
