The honey is a must for fishing. It can be used for salmon, just like leech blood. I used it as bait for an hour and noticed that fish bite more frequently. In a pool with coel and salmon, I noticed that the salmon bit more frequently than the coels while using honey as bait.
Honey the bee creates expires quickly. (even in a fridge.)
You can actually (attach) the honey to a fishing rod and remove at anytime. This will prevent the honey from ever expiring! Good way to store it as fishing rods are so cheap to make!
Need honey in Aberration? You might find that taming one of these guys is unnescessary. You can hardly walk ten steps without finding a wild bee hive (not including the bioluminescent areas, of course), and seeing as the hazard suit also protects you from the “BEEEES!” effect, you can freely harvest these hives without fear of stings.
(WILD HONEY GATHERING MADE EASY)
If you have a hive located directly next to a easily accessible/escapable water source , no piranhas preferably.
Here's how to get honey without taming.
Climb/walk up to hive , grab honey , drop/jump directly into water,
Swim about 2 to 4 Boulder lengths away (Underwater) drones can't attack and will retreat back to hive . Rinse&Repeat
Do this as many times as you need honey !!!
Crouching to follow and going prone to feed helps along with ghille and bug repellent. When placing hive after taming it is free standing, if you place on a wall even though it will let you, you can’t access the inventory.
