Lobster Fishing in Runescape

Lobster fishing in Runescape is one of the best ways to earn money!


  • Level 40 fishing
  • Lobster pot
  • 60 gp per trip (30 for members with glory amulet)
  • Open inventory (except the pot and coins)


The best (and only) place to fish for lobsters for nonmembers is on Karamja. You can get there by taking the ferry for 30 gp from Port Sarim, west of Draynor Village. Once you arrive, go north to the north dock and begin fishing with your lobster pot.

Once you have a full load, take them to the bank in Draynor, or cook them and then put them in the bank. Later, when you have a lot of them, you can sell them in the bank for 250-300 gp each.

Members with a glory amulet:

Members with a glory amulet can follow the process, but use their glory amulet to teleport to Draynor instead. This can save time and 30 gp per trip. Not that you will need it with all the money you will earn from selling the lobsters!

    there should be a bank at karajum because that is the only place where you can fish lobbsters, swordfish and tuna for non members if you agree send me your username and pass so i can do an appeal

    if there is going to be a bank in karamja, it would have to require to have the pirates treasure quest finished, for obvious reasons. I thihnk there should be a port sarim bank, because karamja actually has a bank, but its for members.

    i think thereshould be a bank in karajama becouse all free players hae to walk furthere wasting time

    i think tht is really unfair even tho im a mem lol

    we should protest in varr aquare for 1 =)

  12. become mem
    Posted July 22, 2008 at 4:14 pm

    they aren’t making a bank on karajum because they want you to become a member. If they put a bank of karajum theres 1 less reason to become member? and if they decided to put a bank on karajum where would they put it??

  13. exactly!
    Posted July 22, 2008 at 4:16 pm

    become mem is exactly right!

    Posted August 2, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    we shud put up a post on the forums asking jagex, that way they might actually put one on there or give us a reason y they didnt in the first place, but still, calm down guys, its a game.

  15. Cat
    Posted August 13, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Tbh guys I really want a bank on Karamja too (where the free-players can only go) but Jagex don’t give us much and they give the members so much more because they want everyone to subscribe because obviously they want to make money. I’m upgrading to members because I’ve done all of the quests and have hit a dead end, and I want more storylines in the game. But yeah in the meantime, I think there should be a bank on Karamja, but I can understand why there isn’t one there.

    Let’s protest for one though! =]

    Posted October 25, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    hey everyone i bet you fishing for salmon and trout is better than fishing for lobbies but u get a lower price of course.

    you could try fishin at lumbridge then cook it at the cooks assistant place or you could try fishin a barb village as said but store it at the edgeville bank

    that way you train faster tahn lobbies
    so yeah everyone

  23. yea yea wats up!!
    Posted November 22, 2008 at 1:23 am

    if u are a member and wuna catch lobters go to catherbay and catch there its free its near camelot

    thers has to be a bank on karamja for freeplayers that would make it more intersting to us and it would make more money and more to us is kool so we would probably pay for MEM

  27. lobsterman
    Posted December 14, 2008 at 3:13 pm

    the reason there is no bank on karamja is that jagex said that if u subscribe u get better ways of making money to encourage free players to become members.the only way of getting quick lobs is fishing in catherby for members.

    Posted December 20, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    Runescape will never put a bank in karamja as they are trying to bride players to members with their banks 5 seconds away from the shore at Catherby.

    If you want to bank.

    Become a member as I do.

    Don’t be a poor hobo and cry about it if you can’t afford it you cheap noobs.

  30. There is a Bank in Karamja
    Posted December 22, 2008 at 5:00 pm

    actually, there is a bank in karamja, but that is inside the cave where the level 114+ toks are.


  31. hello!
    Posted December 24, 2008 at 11:54 am

    yes i agree with everyone else that there should be a bank in karamja.sinse this is the only place to fish lobbys, i think jagex should add another place in runescape to fish lobbys.and also whats the point of paying 30gp on each trip.that is just a waste of money…..

  32. Dudes there alreay makin a bnk in karajama
    Posted December 30, 2008 at 10:48 am

    oo yea u guys the prices change so this might not always be rite…… plus i meseed up…..=]lol but i hope u can understand…. and i agree with the other guys who said we should put a bank in port sarim not karajma cause there s already a bank there/// #40 how u know there makin a bank there?

  35. Juggalo Homie
    Posted January 30, 2009 at 9:22 am

    Guys i agree wit u all thazt there should be a bank on karajma but u all no as well as i do that they will never put one there beacuse the profit/prices for lobster will go dirt cheep because EVERYONE will be fishin , bankin , then prolly sellin which will cause the prices to drop because there will be so many lobster. Plus they are only trying to bribe u into gettin a membership in runescape which alot of ppl don\’t wana do for sum reason. AND Karajma aint the only place to fish for non mems .. in the wildy near the clan wars place there is 3 spots next to eachother to fish lobbies then u can go west abit and go to the bounty hunter place THERES A BANK THERE soooooooo jus makin my point the karajma aint the only place to fish lobbies.

    Posted February 7, 2009 at 8:23 pm

    they shouldn’t put a bank on karimja, it will make lobsters worth next to nothing

  44. sharif534
    Posted May 18, 2009 at 9:51 am

    #42 ya ur right that u can make alot of money but they just have to put a bank because everybody cant find a bank there at least 75% people drop there food so they can fish more and other people just go back and forth all the time and some people would just steal because no1 trusts no1

    Posted June 11, 2009 at 5:51 pm

    if ur a mem just go to catherby by buying a camelot teleport for about 800gp, then go southeast. u can fish lobbs, sharks, swordfish, tuna, oisters, treasure chests, cod… i reccomend it if u have 30 fishing. there is a bank nexto it, plus u should plant ranarrs north of the bank for more profit while u wait\\

    Here are some other spots for P2P to fish for lobsters: Jatizso,(Very close to bank, almost no people.) Fishing guild,(faster than jatizso, but is sometimes crowded.) and, Catherby.(a bit close to bank, mostly crowded.) Hope this helped =)

  47. Posted July 10, 2009 at 3:47 am

    Actually you get more money for raw lobsters than cooked lobsters, but if you wanna improve ur cooking then u can cook them.

  54. Noobs teabag
    Posted November 24, 2009 at 10:05 pm

    i heard theres a spot in the wildy for fishing lobsters is this f2p?
    By the way jagtex doesnt put a bank there because they want u to become mebers so they can get ur money
    if u want xp go get 1k of feathers and start fishing in babarian village and if u need cooking xp fish the trout and salmon then run into the hel shop and theres a fire in there and just coook ur food on the fire and run bak if u dont need food then just drop it i do this when fishing there then drop everything but ur fly fishing rod and feathers and start again u can make 1400xp per inventory i got my cooking lvl up by fishing here and it is much more faster and possibly the fastest method for cooking and fishing xp except for buying raw fish off the ge which is a waste of money anyway i have 1.6 mil and i have never been member if ur anygood at combat than go bounty hunter and kill ur target with high ep or any ep it doesnt matter i got a corrupt schimi drop and sold it for 1.6 mil and i have 1 rune set and lots of other armours

  55. Posted January 16, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    Guys, you know near the Entrana Monks right? There’s a deposit box so you can bank your lobs there. ^_^
