Perhaps I could reel it in somehow.


Flotsam is found in the Ocean, and consists of floating debris from a shipwreck. Flotsam can be snagged using a Fishing Rod, and will yield Boards, Logs, Cut Grass, Rope, Twigs, and various new Trinkets such as: a Soaked Candle, an Old Boot, a Sextant, a Toy Boat or a Sea Worther. These trinkets can be given to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets, or traded with Wolly. 2-5 floatsam will respawn at the ocean that is close to player every 15 days, the spawn interval for each being 0.2 days. Flotsam will sink after 2 days.

Flotsam can be found in both Sandbox Mode and Adventure Mode.

Chances for obtaining each of the possible loots is as follows:
