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 1,000g 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.

While the Magnet can be bought at the Fish Shop for 1,000g, crafting is a much cheaper option. Since 5 Iron Ore and 1 Coal cost 900g at the Blacksmith, the crafting cost is only 300g per magnet.
