In this article, we’re going to go over how to catch a Soft-Shelled Turtle in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. This includes the areas to catch them in, selling price, the shadow size and more. Let’s get to it!
- Can be found in: River’s
- Sells For: 3,750 Bells
- Shadow Size: Medium
Soft-Shelled Turtles are always going to be found in river’s. There’s 1 main place to search for in River’s:
- River’s Above Cliffs: Certain fish only spawn in river’s that are on top of a cliff. Check your higher elevated river’s for Soft-Shelled Turtles before searching in the lower elevated ones. Bring your Fishing bait!
Finding Soft-Shelled Turtles also depends on your Hemisphere location.
If you are in the Northern Hemisphere, you can catch them in August and September.
If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, you can catch them in February and March.
For either Hemisphere, Soft-Shelled Turtles can be caught between 9 AM and 4 PM.
- Crafting Fishing bait is a great way to get the catch you want. Craft fishing bait and throw it into the river to attract more fish.
- Verify which shadow you think would be the Soft-Shelled Turtle (remember, it’s a medium shadow) and cast your line near that shadow.
- Make sure it is between 9 AM and 4 PM. Remember, the game’s time is based off what your Switch time is set on.
