Fishing tournament rewards are items you can get by winning the fishing tourney in Animal Crossing New Horizons. There’s around a dozen of them, and you’ll have to stock up on bait if you want to collect them all. If you’re wondering whether it’s worth the effort, this guide will show you all fishing tournament rewards in Animal Crossing New Horizons, so you don’t have to waste time with it if you don’t like them.
Fishing tourney rewards
As you can see in the image above, tournament rewards include a piscine wallpaper, a fish-shaped carpet, paintings and posters, bags, a shirt, an umbrella, a door plate, a magic wand, a rod rack, a cooler and a trophy.
In order to get any of them, you’ll have to get at least ten points, which means catching eight or more fish in three minutes. You get one point for each fish, and two bonus points if you catch more than three – hence the eight fish. It might sound daunting, but it’s easy enough if you approach it with a plan. Stock up on bait before you start, and just spam it as soon as the clock starts ticking. To get the trophy, you’ll need to score at least 100 points in a single day – if you want that one, make sure you have a boatload of bait.
If you still haven’t had the chance to take part in the tournament, it probably means you’ve missed CJ the beaver, the one in charge of the tournament. He’s only there for one day out of the entire month, which means you’ll have to be prepared for when he comes. Of course, like with anything else in the game, if you’ve missed the third Saturday of the month and aren’t in the mood to wait for CJ’s next appearance, you can just use time travel.
