You’ll be able to talk to him and enter the Fishing Tourney as many times as you want while the tourney is open on Saturday.

A complete list of all the prizes can be found below:

  • Anchor statue
  • Fish door plate
  • Fish-drying rack
  • Fish umbrella
  • Fish wand
  • Fishing rod stand
  • Fish pochette
  • Fish-print tee
  • Fish rug
  • Fresh cooler
  • Marine pop wall
  • Tackle bag

You can also pick up several different trophies like Bronze, Silver, and Gold for reaching specific milestones in the tourney. If you haven’t taken part in one of the Fishing Tourneys yet, then we definitely recommend making some time to log in on Saturday and take part in the event. It’s a great way to pass the time and add some additional items to your catalog.
