Fishing Tourney in Animal Crossing: Wild World!

Today was the fishing tourney in Animal Crossing: Wild World. Any kind of fish is accepted, which actually can make things a little tricky! As with the New Leaf tourney yesterday, I fished later in the day in the hopes that it would improve my chances of winning.

Let’s do this!

When I started up the game, I checked my mail really quick. I was sad to see that there was a letter from Gladys saying that she had moved! Boo! She was one of my favorite villagers, and I’ve had her in my town for a long time. 😦

Why did you leave me, Gladys? 

After being bummed out by her letter, I headed over to Tortimer at the town hall to chat with him and see what the competition was like.

A sea bass is the biggest entry? Awesome! Sea bass are fairly common (okay, sometimes TOO common) and they are relatively big fish, so I thought that wouldn’t be too hard to catch. Sure enough, the first fish I reeled in was a sea bass!

Off to a good start!

I kept fishing for awhile, catching a few more sea bass and some other smaller fish to sell off. When I turned the first sea bass in to Tortimer, he told me the record was now held by Stitches for catching a red snapper! WTF man!

Luckily, the next sea bass I had in my pocket was way bigger. Ha! I was back in the lead, and with only about 5 minutes to go, I thought I had it in the bag.

Beat that, Stitches!

I decided to stroll along the beach and see if I could catch at least one more fish. If you beat your own record, you get an extra prize from Tortimer! I did end up catching one, but when I turned it in…

You have got to be kidding me!! With two minutes left in the competition, someone beat me! Ugh! Talk about a rip off. I tried to see if I could hurry up and catch something else, but when I got to the beach, the clock chimed 6 p.m. and I was officially out of time. I tried to take a pic of the ending comment for the fishing tourney, but I was too late, so I ended up with this:

oops
Well, that’s… artistic.

Haha! Anyway, normally the next day you get a letter in the mail if you’ve won the tourney, plus it is posted on the bulletin board. This time, I know I didn’t win squat. Oh well. I’ve still got the fishing tourney in City Folk to write about, so stay tuned for that! Bye!
