Luck of the Sea is a spell that increases the chances of collecting rare prey along the way fishing.

As far as fishing is concerned, there are three possible categories of prey: fish, treasure and waste. Of course, fish is the most common of these, followed by garbage, and then rare items that are considered treasure.
