Animal Crossing
The fishing tourneys are on Sundays in June and November. The Fishing Tournament will start at 6:00 and end at 6:00pm. Go down to the lake and you will find Chip and his tent set up there. In order to participate, you must enter a fish. The player or villager that hands Chip the fish that measures the longest will win.
 Types of Contests
There are two types of contests that Chip can ask you to participate in:
- 1. Specific Fish - Chip will name a fish and you must find it in the rivers or the ocean. Only that fish will be accepted. If you give Chip anything else, he will eat it up. Make sure that you get a decent sized fish entered!
- 2. All Fish - You may bring any kind of fish to Chip. You need to make sure that the fish you catch looks long and big, as the measurement length will decide whether you win or not.
After the fishing tourney is over for the day, Chip will post who won on the bulletin board. If you won, he will send you your prize in the mail the next day.
