How to Get Bait (Fishing Guide) on Raft

Your main goal in Raft is finding as many resources as possible to make survival easier. Since you are constantly surrounded by water, you easily catch a fish with a fishing rod. But you will only get normal fish if you don’t use baits. Using bait will increase your chance of getting some rare marine life.

Unlike the Shark Bait in the game, you can’t craft fishing bait to get some exotic fish. Instead, you must go to the nearest trading post and buy some baits from the merchants with some Trash Cubes, which is the in-game currency. If you don’t know how to make or find some Trash Cubes, don’t worry because we already have a guide on that topic.
