When I started up the game tonight, I saw that Joey has ducked out of town. I received his goodbye letter in the mail.
While the best time of year for making money just ended in ACCF (catching summer bugs on trees), the best money-making time in this game is right now! In early September, there are no sea bass (or jellyfish) in the ocean. So any ocean fish you catch will be worth at least 3,000 bells (as long as you don’t fish near the mouth of the river, since salmon can be caught there). For more information, see my September Fishing guide.
So I emptied my pockets and took my rod to the sea. I fished until my pockets were full. It wasn’t raining, so I didn’t catch any coelacanths. And of the two remaining types of fish, I only caught one of the more valuable (barred knifejaw) fish. The rest were red snappers.
But still, in under ten minutes of fishing, I earned 47,000 bells. Not bad.
I ran into Tom, and he thought he smelled raviolis? Maybe he just smelled my cologne. I’m wearing Eau de Chef Boyardee. 😉
I bumped into Hank, and he asked me for a new catchphrase to replace “on my beak.” So I told him to say “in a cage.”
I was trying to get him to use his new phrase in a funny way, but I didn’t have much luck. But he did offer me a new shirt for free, a fish bone shirt. Since it’s such a good fishing season, I decided to put it on.
After that, I pulled some weeds, did some more fishing, and stopped in the post office to mail a fossil away. I also checked my map… Surprisingly, Joey’s replacement has not moved into town yet. But I’ll surely meet him or her next time. Happy fishing, everyone!
