The Football Fish in Animal Crossing Pocket Camp is one of the rarest and most difficult fish to catch in the entire game. 

Pocket Camp has taken the world by storm of late thanks to the government-imposed isolation periods thanks to the Covid1-19 outbreak.

Animal Crossing is currently flying on the Nintendo Switch. However, the Animal Crossing Pocket Camp version gives those without a switch an opportunity to get involved in the game on their phones or tablets.

The game contains a whole manner of characters, challenges, and features to keep gamers occupied. One of those features is fishing. This gives people the chance to catch a common or rare fish, which they can then use to exchange for bells or given to fellow villagers.

Put simply, there is no perfect or guaranteed way of catching one of these fish. However, you can give yourself a better chance.

First off, you’ll need to head over Saltwater Shores to give yourself the best shot. Then, look for any larger shadows in the water. The larger the shadow, the more chance you have of it being a Football Fish.

Finally, you could try hunting for one during the night. Gamepedia claims the Football Fish has a nighttime spawn rate of just under 2%. For clarity, there is a 0% chance in the day, so don’t get your hopes up if you’re day fishing.
