Shellfish Bait is required to use a Shellfish Trap.
Shellfish Bait will not be craftable until the following steps are taken:
- Purchase the Fisherman upgrade from the Upgrade Table
- Speak to Robert 3 days later to start the Fishing Trap Questline
- Advance the questline until "No Beef In This Bait"
The player receives 5x Shellfish Bait as a reward for completing "No Beef In This Bait".
Shellfish Trap: Shellfish Bait must be in the active hotbar slot (i.e. held in the character's hand) in order to place in a Shellfish Trap. Walk up to the trap, and the text prompt to place the bait will show.
If you are holding the wrong bait for the trap, the prompt will not appear.
Shellfish Bait cannot be used with a Fishing Pole.
