It has no use, just sell to npc, that is the value.

it's use is to skillup. It takes awhile, but every time I snag one, I get a .1 or .2 skillup. the lure's are cheap, the ones I lose are cost covered by the npc I sell the fish to. I fish them in norg and just stand by the little taru and sell them as I get them. then when I lose a lure, AH has me covered ^^

of the few sales in different AH, hard to tell it's real value. If vendors are an indicator, they offered me 250g per, so real value should be 700-1000g. But Theyre would need to be a demand for such price or better. Cont find any recepies or quest demanding this item, plus they dont stack...
Fished three off Khazam pier, using Carbon, and little worms/worm lure.

Edit: I assume this is Mithra food only: last 15 min. +2 DEX -4 MND

how many of your catches were with little worms, i have always been under the presumtion that these were a freshwater bait only

Little worm will catch at least Cobalt Jelly and Coral Butterflies. As for Worth, Guild offers 340~ for 'em (usually more than regular vendors),

Today, the Fishing guild npc wants me to fish her some for a points limit of 2880. I figure I should need 9 or 10.

So with Guild contracts, yes this fish does now have a use.
