How to Catch a Giant Trevally in Animal Crossing New Horizons

If you’re looking to catch a Giant Trevally, you’ll want to make sure your fishing during the right months in the correct location. This fish is available from May through October at any time during the day. It has a large shadow, comparable to the Sea Bass, and can only be found by fishing off a pier.

  • Fish: Giant Trevally
  • Months: May – October (Northern Hemisphere)
  • Months: November – April (Southern Hemisphere)
  • Time: All Day
  • Location: Pier
  • Price: 4,500 Bells
  • Shadow: Large

You can’t catch this fish in the sea, so make sure you’re fishing on a pier on your home island or on a Nook Miles ticket island. If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, you want to fish for this one from May to October. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, the months are the opposite.

Unlike other rare fish like the Marlin and Tuna, the controller doesn’t have a different vibration for the Giant Trevally so there’s no easy way to tell if you hooked one until you catch it.

We recommend bringing a lot of fish bait with you if you’re looking to catch one of these. You’ll probably be out there for a while, so I hope you have some patience, too. Mahi-mahi, Coelacanth, and plenty of Sea Bass will probably show up before the Giant Trevally.

That’s everything you need to know for how to catch a Giant Trevally in ACNH. I hope this guide helped you out. Good luck fishing!
