Here's the last hint I get:

"You know, there's some great fishing on this island. From what I know, many of the fish enjoy nibbling on ancient bones..."

I haven't had much luck fishing near the dig site. Also, by "nibbling on ancient bones", I originally thought that bone fragments can be used as bait, but it doesn't seem possible.

Is there a specific location to fish from, or rod to fish with, at the dig site to increase my chances of finding the fossilized spine?


Seems like the Iridium Rod should do the trick for catching the spine out of the river according to this video. Make sure you are fishing from the river that in the dig site, and not the small one you cross to enter the dig site:


Alternatively, you can also find the spine from Artifact Spots on the south beach, but fishing is probably quicker.

Like the video illustrates, a Reddit post says the spine is caught similar to trash or also in a treasure chest:

Spine: fishing in the river at the digging site (EDIT: can be fished up in treasure OR in like trash/algae)
