    How to Play

    STEP 1
    Catch some tourney fish!


    During this event, you can catch special tourney fish at Saltwater Shores. You can use these fish to complete tasks in the Fishing Tourney!

    ■ sea butterfly
    ■ puffer fish
    ■ zebra moray



    You'll recognize a tourney fish by its sparkling shadow in the water. When you see one, try to catch it!


    Notes:
    · During the Fishing Tourney, tourney fish will respawn every three hours. Once they've respawned, you will have the chance to catch them up to seven times.
    · When you've caught all of the tourney fish, no more will appear until the next respawn time.

    STEP 2
    Give your fish to Chip!

    After you catch some tourney fish, bring them to Chip and he'll measure them for you.


    If you reach a total-size goal, Chip will give you a reward!



    ■ large rocky seafloor
    ■ pearl chair
    ■ coral table
    ■ puffer-fish hat
    ■ sea-butterfly tank
    ■ puffer-fish tank
    ■ zebra-moray tank

    Check out all those cool rewards! How many do you think you'll get?

    Chip Challenges

    Helpful Tools

    Catch two fish at once with the golden rod!


    Sometimes it's possible to catch two tourney fish at once with a normal fishing rod, but...if you use Leaf Tickets to rent the golden rod from Chip, you'll catch two tourney fish each time, so long as tourney fish are available to be caught!

    Notes:
    · The rental period for the golden rod is from 19/5/2018 at 6:00 a.m. to 23/5/2018 at 5:59 a.m.
    · Rented golden rods will be effective from 19/5/2018 at 6:00 a.m. to 24/5/2018 at 5:59 a.m.
    · The golden rod will not affect tourney fish respawn timing.
    · If the golden rod is rented after the tourney fish have all been caught, you will be unable to catch more tourney fish until they respawn.
    · When the Fishing Tourney ends, the golden rod will be returned and you will automatically switch back to a normal fishing rod. If you wish to use another golden rod for the next Fishing Tourney, you will have to rent it again.

    Catch lots of fish with the tourney throw net!


    You can catch many tourney fish at once by using tourney throw nets!

    ■ tourney throw net
    ■ lg. tourney throw net

    Notes:
    · You'll need to use Leaf Tickets to use a lg. tourney throw net.
    · You can get tourney throw nets by completing Chip Challenges and other tasks.
    · When the Fishing Tourney ends, your tourney throw nets will disappear.

    When the event period is over, Chip Challenges will end and you will be unable to collect your rewards.

    Trophies will remain in your mailbox past the cutoff date, but the trophy rank-up message will not be displayed. If you wait until after the cutoff date, it is also possible that your Fishing Tourney records will not be properly saved on your trophy, so we highly recommend logging in during the pickup period to claim your trophy.
