HMS Halieutika

HMS Halieutika is Captains Fred's boat, offering deep sea fishing trips. To get there you need to buy a ticket at Port Barin, which approximately costs 120 vessi, depending on your trading level.
Fishing trips are scheduled from either Port Barin or Port Schow. You can find out when the next cruise is coming in the ticketing office. To get on the boat, click on the blue ocean area next to the port.
If you are on the boat once the cruise starts after a few minutes you`ll be able to start fishing.
There're two options to fish on the boat:

The first option has no fishing level requirements. Although to use the second option, you will need at least level 20 fishing. Also if you are fishing at HMS Halieutika you don't need any tools to catch fish, Captain Fred is very kind and provides all needed equipment.

While fishing on side, you will be able to catch Mackerel, Flounder, Haddock and Salmon.
While fishing on the stern, you will be able to catch Tuna, Sandbar Shark, Salmon and Marlin.

Note: Some of the fish require lower level to catch them compared to other available fishing spots in the game while giving more experience too!

HMS Halieutika sailing schedule:

xx:00:00 “And we're off, we will be arriving in Danycia shortly”
xx:05:00 “We have arrived in Danycia, watch your step on the way out”
xx:15:00 Captain Fred announces “5 minutes until we set sail for Therusia”
xx:20:00 “And we're off, we will be arriving in Therusia shortly”
xx:25:00 “We have arrived in Therusia, watch your step on the way out”
xx:35:00 Captain Fred announces “5 minutes until we set sail for Port Barin”
xx:40:00 “And we're off, we will be arriving in Port Barin shortly”
xx:45:00 “We have arrived in Port Barin, watch your step on the way out”
xx:55:00 Captain Fred announces “5 minutes until we set sail for Danycia”

where xx = the current hour


Currently lures are used for catching two types of fish: Tuna Lure for Tuna and Shark Lure for Sandbar Sharks.
These are long lasting items (by saying that I mean that you can use them for more than one fish). You don`t have to equip a lure (as it's obviously not an equipment), it just has to be in your equipment to succesfully start fishing the desired type of fish.

Bait Making

You must be level 20 in order to make bait.
The only one currently known bait making place is located in Eptile, although players of all nationalities can use that spot. For making bait you have to use mackerel or bass. From each action you can get from 4 to 7 bait, no matter fish type. The experience gained by making bait counts towards fishing experience.
Bait is used for lobster or pike fishing, where 1 is consumed after each try.
NOTE: While making bait your -fishing time items do not count. So you wont get lower time if you equip Ring of The Fish or eat soups
NOTE: There is also a small chance of getting an emerald (and possibly other gems) while making bait.
Opals can be found while making bait (submitted by Damien Marlock after finding one)
