Catch these Animal Crossing: New Horizons fish, bugs, and sea creatures before November ends

November is coming to a close, which means that a bunch of critters in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are going to vanish for a while.

To help make sure you grab what you can before they disappear, we’ve put together a list of things to hunt down and fill out the the Museum.

While folks who time travel don’t have as much to worry about when it comes to catching this variety of bugs, people playing by the day will not want to wait months to continue their collection.

For fish, we recommend using bait, crafted using the manila clams that you can dig up on the beach, to quickly spawn fish in the desired location. Simply make the bait at your crafting table and toss it into the water from your inventory.

The Northern Hemisphere is continuing its pattern of losing a lot, as the islands are transitioning to winter. (You’ll start seeing snow soon!) On the flip, the Southern Hemisphere islands are keeping most of their critters as summer approaches.
