How to Catch Napoleonfish in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

by Nicholas Barth

One of the most exciting aspects of Animal Crossing: New Horizons is when a different month arrives. The reasoning for why it is an exciting time when a different month comes is the addition of fish that were not available for players to encounter and catch in the previous month. This will be the case for July, as players will have a group of fish that they now have the opportunity to catch. One of these fish is the Napoleonfish, and we have everything you need to know to catch a Napoleonfish covered for you.

Players will find that the Napoleonfish will spawn at the location of the sea. This particular fish has a huge shadow size, which means that those who are wanting to catch this aquatic creature will need to cast their lines out towards the biggest shadows they see to obtain the Napoleonfish. You will be able to find this creature at sea between 4 AM and 9 PM, which means that players do have to dedicate a portion of time during a specific period of time to have a chance of getting this fish for their collection.

This fish will spawn in the world of the latest entry in the fan-favorite Nintendo franchise between July and August in the Northern Hemisphere. Individuals in the Southern Hemisphere will see the Napoleonfish spawn in Animal Crossing: New Horizons between January and February.
