Johnny fishing at low tide

Johnny spends a lot of time fishing - it's his main source of food (the picture shows him doing a spot of moonlight fishing at low tide).

He commonly catches:

  • An old boot

  • A crab

  • A star fish

all of which he usually throws back, but he sometimes puts the boot behind his tree.

Johnny bitten by crab

On 9 Jun 1998 Emmett Wayne of Hinesville, GA, USA reported:
When Johnny lands the crab, the crab bites Johnny on the nose, which is why he throws him back.

Less commonly

  • A lifebelt with "SS Titanic" written on it. (The picture shows the glitch that comes up above Johnny's head when he fishes from the left hand side of the island - more details on the Bugs Page.)

  • A green fish

  • A plank of wood

  • A small octopus

All of which he puts behind his tree.

Squirting fish

The green fish sometimes fights back, as reported on 29 Oct 1996:
Johnny catches the green fish, as he often does, but occasionally the fish sprays him with water, and he throws it back in disgust.

Ambidextrous Johnny - eagle-eyed Kit Denton spotted on 31 Jan 2001: If Johnny has two fishing rods. If he is fishing on the right side of the island he uses a right handed fishing reel. On the left he uses a left handed reel.
