What You Can Do With CJ
Catch 3 Fish Of The Same Size In A Row
CJ will ask you to catch 3 fish of the same size in a row. The best way to do this successfully is to check the shadow of the fish in the water to determine their size.Check Out All Fish List & Critterpedia!
Check Fish Shadow Size In Water
To make sure you're able to catch the same size of fish in a straight row, check the size of the fish's shadow. This helps you estimate the size of the fish you'll catch.
No Distinct Rewards Confirmed Yet
When you complete CJ's fishing challenge, he'll offer to buy what you caught. No distinct or special rewards have been confirmed yet in the game.
Sell Fish For Bells
CJ will also offer to buy any of the fish that you've caught. This is a great way to offload your inventory after the fishing tournament.Check Out How To Farm Money (Bells) Fast!

Talking to CJ will also allow you to create fish models or collectibles for free. Just bring 3 of the same fish to him and he'll mail it to you once the model has been created.Check Out Rare Fish List Here!
