A brand new month on your islands means new catchable critters, new bugs, new fish, and of course, new Deep-Sea Creatures. And those sea swimmin’ critters can be particularly difficult to capture. So don’t be an April fool! In this Animal Crossing New Horizons: April Deep-Sea Creatures Guide, we will have you covered with the tips you need to help you catch them all! A perfect distraction from the sinister terror that is Bunny Day.

As there is already a list of all the Bugs and Fish that will be appearing in April on this site. So here is a list of all the Deep-Sea Creatures that will be available this month; the guide in question dates from before these beasties were added, so you can only find them here!

CATCHING FAST DEEP-SEA CREATURES

One of the hardest types of catchable creatures to capture in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is the Fast-moving Deep-Sea Creatures. It can be frustrating at times to capture the likes of the Giant Isopod or the Spider Crab, given that they are able to outrun (or rather, out swim) you with ease. One of the best ways to capture them is to swim just to the side of them and try to cut them off when they change course. And where possible trying to shepherd them into corners where you will more easily be able to trap them.

Ideally, you’ll want to do this with them swimming close to the netting at the side of the swimming area. This will reduce the number of places that they could escape to and make it easier for you to cut them off before they can change course. It can be tricky to get right. But remember, it’s better that they are reacting to you rather than you are reacting to them.
