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!

  1. I’m sorry you didn’t get the biggest fish😩How can both games have fishing tournaments? Oh well at least you caught something!

    1. Haha that’s right, can’t win them all! The games all have their own little events, so sometimes they all will have events on the same day. That’s why there were multiple fishing tourneys to write about!
