Bait for both fish is the Signature Skyball, as it has been for the past few steps.
This time, you do not need a set number of fish for items, but instead each fish must be caught as a collectable and based on its collectability, you will receive a certain number of materials. Thus, you will need to fish up however many fish it takes to get to what you need. Don't forget to turn on Collectors Glove!
Tier 1 Collectability is 1 Material.
Tier 2 Collectability is 2 Materials.
Tier 3 Collectability is 4 Materials.
Collectability Ratings vary per fish and will be listed below. Fish will be turned into an NPC in The Firmament. No requirement of progression needed for your server.Flintstrike

In general, it's best to always use Patience II to catch this fish to maximize collectability. Even with high Perception it is likely you will not get max tier collectability every catch. Food is recommended to improve Perception and thus, collectability.
And yes. The relic rod does glow.5.35 Relic Rod Guide
