Lures are Items exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in Return of Them. They are placed in the lure slot of the Sea Fishing Rod to improve its attractiveness to Ocean Fishes. Different lures have different effects over various species of fishes as some might be completely ineffective in attracting them while others might be best suited for certain fishes. Some lures are simple baits such as seeds, rot and berries while others are spoons and spinners that can be crafted in the Fishing Tab which is be accessed through Tackle Receptacle. The spork trinket can also be used as a lure.

Icon Tools Usage Edit

The hook of the Sea Fishing Rod is already able to catch every saltwater fish by itself without a lure placed in the lure slot but it is rather ineffective in this regard, with a low chance of a fish biting it. Adding any other lure greatly increases the chance of fishes biting the hook, although some fishes cannot be lured by certain lures while most are very effective for catching certain fishes. Additionally lures also affect the radius, range and the reeling speed of the Sea Fishing Rod.

The radius refers to the maximal distance for an Ocean Fish to be attracted by the lure. bigger the radius is, more fishes around the float are lured into the bait.

The range bonus is a bonus to the Sea Fishing Rod casting range. Some lures offer a small bonus to this casting distance.

The attractiveness quantifies the speed at which fishes bite the lure; the higher the value, the faster the fish bite. The player can gain an attractiveness bonus if they reel the line. The bonus decays in 2 seconds.

The bait lures are single use only, as catching a fish will end up consuming the said lure, be it rot, seeds or berries. The craftable lures, on the other hand will retain themselves as long as they aren't lost through a failed reeling. When a fish manages to get away after biting the lure, the lure that was used to attract the fish is lost along with the float that was used.

The craftable spinners and spoons have different behavior depending on the time of the day. These Sunrise, Dusky and Nightflyer lures are only 100% effective during Day, Dusk and Night respectively, and they retain only 30% of their attraction outside of their relevant time of the day.

Each species of Ocean Fishes have an affinity for different Lures. The affinity modifies the perceived attractiveness.

Placeholder TriviaEdit

  • Lures were introduced in the Hook, Line, and Inker update.
  • The Spork trinket works as a Lure, which is the result of a wordplay as certain lures are called spoons and spork is technically a fusion of a spoon and a fork.
