Your July events (two on the same day!) disagree with MeteoNook's.

Anonymous 3

Yeah there's a misleading posting. One spot says there's a fishing tourney every month, and the main fishing tourney page states 2nd saturday in April, July, October, and January. This needs to be clarified.

It is its listed for we each hemisphere

Why is fishing tourney pretty much listed in every month. I thought it was 4 times a year?
