Today was the fishing tourney in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! During the fishing tourney, you have until 6 p.m. to catch the biggest fish. I like to play toward the later part of the day, when someone else has already set the record. That way I can see what I have to beat, and normally if I beat the record, it’s close to 6 p.m. and no one else can beat ME!
As soon as I exited my house, I headed over to Chip so he could explain the rules to me.
I headed down to the beach in search of horse mackerels. Lucky me, I caught one on my first try! My character looks a little stoned, so I’m surprised she caught anything at all. 😉
I caught a few more fish for good measure, then took them up to Chip for evaluation. NONE of them were big enough to take over first place! Crap! It wasn’t looking good for me.
I headed on down to the beach to fish a little more. I only had about 6 minutes left to fish, so I figured my chances weren’t very good. To my surprise, I caught an 18.50 inch horse mackerel, which I knew would take over first place!
I rushed over to Chip, who confirmed that I was now in the lead. He also gave me a puffer fish tv, which I was super excited about! I’ve been wanting one of those!
With only a couple minutes left of the tourney, I decided to sell off the other fish I had caught. I also took a quick trip to Main Street to visit the museum and say hello to some of my past villagers.
As I crossed the railroad tracks back into town, I was alerted that the fishing tourney was over. All right, time to see if I won!
Following Chip’s instructions, I headed into the tent for the awards ceremony. And… yay! I got first place!
Look how cute and happy everyone is! I snagged a gold trophy for my efforts.
That’s it for the fishing tourney in Animal Crossing: New Leaf! I had a lot of fun. Tomorrow, there is a fishing tourney in both Wild World and City Folk, so be expecting entries about them as well. Good night!
