Catching the Ocean Sunfish in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To catch an Ocean Sunfish, you’ll want to get and equip a fishing rod, while patrolling the ocean coast on the lookout for fins.

Besides those fins popping out of the water, you can also keep an eye out for the largest of shadows to have a better chance at the Ocean Sunfish, but due to the random nature of fishing you’ll just be hoping with each cast.

Once you’ve found your target, you will want to cast out in front of the shadow with the A button.

Once the shadow takes a few swipes at your bobber, it will pull it under the water, signaling when you need to quickly hit the A button again to reel it in.

Ocean Sunfish Sell Price

The Ocean Sunfish earns 4,000 Bell when sold to Nook’s Cranny, but if C.J. happens to be on your island, you can earn 6,000 Bells from him instead.
