Fish for Raw Whales if using the Octopus + Pig Summoning synergy, or Magic Fish if not. Other fish providing good GP/hour rates are also listed below. Each piece of equipment will give a substantial boost to profit per hour. Fishing is the most profitable single-skill money making method, though it gets outclassed by the multiplicative benefits of the combinations above. This method does not include extra gold gained from special chances which would boost profit per hour marginally. Maximum GP/hour rates assume all improvements to GP rate are obtained and in use.

With the Throne of the Herald expansion, higher level fish may yield higher profit than base game fish. Raw Static Jellyfish is the first fish with greater GP/h than whales. Alternately, prioritizing fish with higher XP rates will get you to the most profitable high-level fish such as Raw Mystic Shark faster. Fish GP/h is listed in the Fishing page.

With the Atlas of Discovery expansion, The Fisherman's Bounty point of interest in Cartography provides several useful buffs to this method.
