Fishing Tourney #3 Complete Event Guide

The third Fishing Tourney event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android! It runs from June 29th, 2018 to July 3rd, 2018. Learn how to catch tournament fish, win underwater furniture, claim free Leaf Tickets, and grab the Octopus Hat in our complete guide!

How to Catch Fishing Tourney Fish

During this event, head to the Lost Lure Creek river on your map and meet the friendly NPC Chip when he greets you on your first arrival. (later you can find him standing north of the dock) After you’ve begun the event by speaking to him, just start fishing on the river shore and throw your fishing rod towards sparkling shadows indicating a tourney fish ready to catch!

For Fishing Tourney #3, there are three special tournament fish to catch during the event: Bluegill, Angelfish, and Arowana. These fish will always be caught when you go after a sparkling shadow.

The bad news is that these special sparkling tourney fish are only available in limited quantities before they disappear until respawn. After catching around seven or so of these fish, a message will pop-up indicating there are no more left to catch for now. Thankfully, the respawn is directly tied to the 3-hour villager cycle meaning that every time villagers cycle around your map, there will be new tourney fish to catch!

In addition to the usual method of fishing in the river, you can sometimes receive tourney fish as gifts from villagers in your campsite when speaking to them! This happens during interactions where they share materials or bells with you.

Win Underwater Furniture and Octopus Hat Prizes

After you have caught all of the special tourney fish in the river during a cycle, walk over to Chip and speak to him to collect your rewards. He’ll assess your inventory of tourney fish and added up the measurements to add to your total-size goal. Then you’ll receive prizes according to your total-size goal milestones reached so far!

Here’s the full list of the special event prizes you can win during Fishing Tourney #3 and how to unlock them:

Complete the Fishing Tourney Faster with Golden Rod and Throw Nets

Looking for a leg up on this event? For 80 Leaf Tickets, you can purchase a Golden Rod from Chip to guarantee double catches for all of your tourney fishing for the duration of the event. With the regular fishing rod, there is a small chance of catching two fish at once but not often.

In our assessment of previous Fishing Tourney events, we don’t feel that the Golden Rod or additional tourney throw nets are at all necessary to complete the event and receive all of the rewards available.

However, this operates on the basis on being an active player participating in multiple fishing cycles every day during the event. If you don’t have as much time to play, you may find the Golden Rod to be worth purchasing!
