Those who want to earn extra Bells for Bugs and Fish should take note of the Fishing Tournament and Bug-Off in July 2022. In both hemispheres, CJ will always be hosting a Fishing Tournament on the second Saturday of July – that’s i.e. July 9 in 2022. When the day comes, CJ will set up his tent at Resident Services between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. It will invite players to join the competition, which consists of catching as many fish as possible in three minutes.

After each round, players can redeem points for fishing-themed prizes. They can also sell their finds to CJ, who offers more bells for fish than Nook’s Cranny. Notice to lovers of some expensive fish that returned to the water in July: the Napoleonfish (ocean, 15,000 bells) and the Blue Marlin (pier, 15,000 bells).

Later, on July 23, players in the Northern Hemisphere can participate in another Bug-Off, which takes place on the fourth Saturday of every summer month (per Animal Crossing World). Flick will set up in front of Resident Services between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. The same rules for the fishing tournament apply here: catch as many bugs as possible in three minutes. The more points players earn, the more prizes they can redeem.

Flick will also buy bugs from players. To get the most Bells, focus on catching high-priced July creatures like the Golden Stag (Palm Trees, 18,000 Bells).
