Fishing in Animal Crossing is one of the main activities to do. You will most
likely be spending a lot of time fishing. You want to make sure you know which
fish to sell and which fish to throw back. Also, so you know what you should be
looking for during that time of year in your quest for the Golden Fishing Rod.
This guide will tell you how to fish, what fish to catch and will list a lot of
information regarding all the fish found in Animal Crossing.

1.0.0 - The Basics
-----------------------------

There are six different areas where you can fish. Some fish will only appear in
specific areas. The list of areas is as follows:

Holding Pond
Ocean
River
River Mouth
River Waterfall
River Pond

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Holding Pond
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A holding pond is a little pond found in your town that is all alone. It is not
connected to any other body of water and is pretty small. Each town has at 
least one holding pond. The fish found in these ponds are small and not worth
much. Some months out of the year will not have a single fish in the holding
pond. 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ocean
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The ocean is the body of water at the far south of town. You can see the tide
in the water so you know it's the ocean. The ocean has the biggest and most
expensive fish. It also has Sea Bass...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
River
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The river runs through your town and down to the ocean. There are a couple
bridges to cross the river. Fish sometimes go under these bridges and it can be
quite difficult to flush them out. If you are having a hard time catching a
fish under the bridge, throw the bobber upstream so it will float down under
the bridge. You will have to catch the fish with your ears when you hear the
bobber go underwater.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
River Mouth
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The mouth of a river is where the river meets the ocean. It can be hard to see
a fish that goes from the river to the ocean as there is a spot that the fish
becomes invisible. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
River Waterfall
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your town should have two waterfalls. One at the top of the town and one
somewhere along the river. If a fish is found in the waterfall, you have to
fish for it at the bottom of the waterfall. You can stand at the top cliff and
throw your bobber to the bottom if need be. The waterfall at the top of your
town can be pretty difficult to fish in as you cant reach the base. I do not
think the Char can be caught at that waterfall anyway. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
River Pond
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Somewhere along the river is a large open body of water. It is easy to spot
because the river becomes much wider and looks like a pond. 

-----------------------------
Tools
-----------------------------

This is a given. You can either shake the remote to cast and catch a fish or
you can use the C button on the nunchuk. 

Fishing Rod        - Bought from Tom Nook.
Silver Fishing Rod - Bought at Nooks shop, fish attract to bobber more.
Golden Fishing Rod - Catch all fish and get this, Fish attract more to bobber
                     and you have a little longer to press the button after a
                     bite.

-----------------------------
Before You Start:
-----------------------------

Animal Crossing has a lot of fish and bugs to catch. Fishing in Animal Crossing
consistently gives you money. It's an everlasting source of bells. Bug catching
can also be used for money making purposes. The bugs/fish you see depend on the
season, the time of day and where you are looking. For example, the river fish
are completely different from the ocean fish. Each month, the fish you can
catch in either the river or the ocean changes, so does the bugs you can catch.
I will list every fish, where you can catch it, what time of day you can catch
it and how much it is worth.

Some Tips:
*Fish only go at the bobber 5 times max, 5th time is an easy catch
*WALK! Running scares away fish and bugs
*Pay attention to the size of fish shadows
*You can sell trash you catch to Nook but you need another item with it
*The sound is played before the bobber goes under, use your ears for rare fish
*Always fish when it rains or snows, rarer fish are much easier to find

1.0.4 - Fishing Tournaments
-----------------------------

Chip comes to town and holds a fishing tournament in Animal Crossing. Here are
the dates of the fishing tournaments:

January     -    3rd Saturday  -  Specific fish needed
February    -    2nd Saturday  -  Biggest fish
March       -    3rd Saturday  -  Specific fish needed
April       -    2nd Saturday  -  Biggest fish
May         -    3rd Saturday  -  Specific fish needed
October     -    2nd Saturday  -  Biggest fish
November    -    3rd Saturday  -  Specific fish needed
December    -    3rd Sunday    -  Biggest fish

The fishing tournament runs from 9am to 6pm. Talk to Chip the beaver to find
out the tournament challenge. Chip will give out a Silver and Gold trophy to
the winners of the tournament. 

Silver Trophy   -   Win by catching a specific fish
Gold Trophy     -   Win by catching the biggest fish

The trophy does not change per tournament (although it should!) so if you get
one of each, you have them all. You can submit fish that you have caught
previously so if you know a tournament is coming, stock up on large fish.

Start with a small fish and submit it to Chip. Each time you take the lead, you
get a item from Chip. The items aren't that great though so I would not go out
of my way to try and get them. Only the trophies are exclusive to Chip. If you
talk to Chip and say you are not going to submit a fish, he will tell you what
the biggest fish currently is. Submit the same one as the biggest.

The size of the fish is not known until you submit it. Chip will tell you its
length and then eat it. You do not get it back. If sea bass are winning and you
submit a sea bass that doesnt take the lead, submit another one. All sea bass
are not the same size. At 6pm, if you are the winner you will be mailed a
trophy and it will be posted on that message board outside the town hall. You
can talk to Chip at 6pm and he will tell you if you won the tournament.
