The Red Snapper is one of the many different fish that can be caught in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Those looking to get the golden tools and complete the Blathers collection may therefore need help catching one. In this guide, we will explain how to catch a red snapper and how much can you sell it for.
Catching the red snapper
To catch a red snapper in Animal Crossing New Horizons, equip any fishing rod and head to the beaches of your island. You want to fish in the sea (anywhere around your island will do it).
Red Snappers can be caught year-round at any time of the day. You want to be on the lookout for a large shadow, but this means it is the same size as the dreaded Sea Bass, so you can expect to catch a fair amount of these in your attempts to catch a Red Snapper.
You can improve your chances of catching one using the fishing bait. Just use it when you are standing next to the sea water and it will cast a shadow. This improves your chances of catching rare fish, including snapper.
Red snapper sale price
The Red Snapper can be sold to Timmy and Tommy at Nook’s Cranny for 3,000 Bells.
If CJ is visiting your town, he’ll buy it for 4,500 Bells, so it’s worth keeping the Red Snappers you raise if you’re not in a hurry for the Bells to earn a little extra cash for your time.
