Players can have quite a few visitors to their island as they work to make their deserted getaway a real home for themselves and others. One of these iconic visitors is CJ, an excited fisherman intent on making the greatest social media impact that he can. On top of running the local fishing tourneys, CJ will also offer small challenges and even purchase fish from you for higher price than Timmy and Tommy. If you’re trying to decide whether you should hold onto a fish until CJ comes around, then we can help. Below you’ll find a complete breakdown of all of CJ’s fish prices as well as a comparison to the price you can get at Nook’s Cranny.
