You must chum the water every time you go fishing. Below is a list of the chum you can buy. More details around each chum are provided in the individual pages available accessible via the link from each Chum name.

Each type has different levels of 'attraction', which improve your chances of making a catch. It's up to you to decide if and when the expensive chum is worth it.

Chum - Special, Regular Chum, and Limits[edit]

As of 2014, there are 33 different types of chum between Farovia & Roperia. 29 of these are considered regular chum, and can be purchased in their respective islands or found in treasure chests. The rest are considered special chums, like those only found through fishing ((Loaf Chum & Butter Chum). Free Love Chum is earned through placing in tournaments, but also rarely given away and can also be found in MTBs, treasures, and completing certain collection sets.

While Red Love Chum is the only chum which can be bought through paying real world currency, you can still earn some by completing offers, or by others who have it the forums. You can find places where you can exchange it by giving/receiving gold/silver, agreeing to trade collection sets with others (honor system), or sometimes by nice wranglers who offer it in contests or give it out freely - the latter which, it's considered proper form to thank them for their generosity in the forums or their profiles!

With the exception of Red Love Chum, the maximum amount of chum that can be purchased varies depending on the size of your Crew. (Loaf Chum, Butter Chum, and Free Love Chum cannot be purchased and hence are not held to this rule). Note, the number of crew does not include yourself.

Chum limit:
# of Crew Maximum Chum
1-2 Crew Hold 200 chums
3-9 Crew Hold 400 chums
10-19 Crew Hold 600 chums
20+ Crew Hold 800 chums (MAX)

Note: If you have ever purchased Red Love Chum, you can hold 800 of any regular chum, regardless of crew size.

Chum found in treasure chests (Farovia) or treasure cases (Roperia) can allow the number of chum held to exceed this limit.

Chum Attraction[edit]

Each Chum has an attraction rate that is used, along with your current pole level, to calculate the Catch Bonus. So for example, Cayenne Chum (9% Attraction Rating) gives you a 4% better chance of catching fish than Steak Chum (which has a 5% Attraction Rating).

A 9% Attraction Rating means you'll increase your chances of making any catch by 9%, and lowering your chances of not catching anything by 9%.

Chum Loss[edit]

Chum loss occurs when you go fishing and do not catch anything, and you have to recollect your chum. Some chums are easier to retain than others. For example, Loaf Chum gets soggy and is not easy to retain.

This statistic only comes into play if you do not manage to attract a fish.

  • A miss with losing your chum will result in a line such as ... My chum floated away into the deep waters!
  • A miss while retaining your chum will give you the message such as ... Didn't catch anything. Nice Whiff!

Note: When logged in via FW platform, one of the benefits will decrease all game chum loss by 5%.

Chum Preference[edit]

Some fish have a preference for a particular type of chum where the use of this chum will double your chances of catching that fish. If there is such a preference, the fish that are attracted to each type of chum is listed on the individual chum pages and a summary is shown below.

Note that just because the chance of catching that fish is doubled, does not guarantee that you will catch that fish. For example, if you normally have a 1% chance of catching a particular fish, and you use its preferred chum, it'll double the chance making it 2% - the 1% difference in this example won't be that noticeable. The effect of this chum choice will be more noticeable with the common fish where if you have a 20% chance of catching that fish, a 40% chance of catching that fish will be a lot more apparent.

Returning Chum[edit]

With the exception of Free Love Chum and Red Love Chum, Chum can be returned at any time to Captain Jozek (even if it wasn't purchased from his stores i.e. Loaf Chum and Fire Sludge Chum) by clicking the "sell some" link in the chum list. You do not have to be in a location with a store in order to return chum.

All of the chum are refunded at their list price except for Loaf Chum and Butter Chum (which are awarded, not purchased, but refund for 30 gold/silver per piece, respectively).

If you return any Veggie Blend Chum, Nail Goo Chum, Algae Chum, Plankton Chum, Gold Goop Chum or Diamond Dip Chum, your Goodness/Evilness rating will be deducted accordingly.
