Catch of the Day (さかな釣り Sakana Tsuri?, "Fish Fishing") is the 21st minigame in Rhythm Heaven Fever and the 99th minigame in Rhythm Heaven Megamix. It is about an angler named Ann Glerr who is on a fishing trip aiming for Quicknibble, Pausegill and Threefish.


Catch of the Day Gameplay
Catch of the Day 3DS gameplay

In this game, the player must try to time catching the fish. Fish will approach the hook one by one. The player has to set the hook at the right time or else the fish will swim away.

There are three different fish that will appear: the Quicknibble, the Pausegill, and the Threefish. They will make a signal on when to try to catch it, pressing A. Quicknibble, the orange one, will nip the bait twice with the beat, and bite on the third beat. The player must set the hook on the third bite. Pausegill, the yellow fish, will nip the bait three times in swift succession, after which it will pause then bite on the next beat. Threefish, the biggest one, will quickly taste the bait with its tongue, after which it waits three beats and a half-beat before biting. The player must set the hook on the half-beat.

  • Tap: Reel-In

Timing Notes

  • Hit: The fish is caught, said fish trying to swim away.
  • Barely: Barely graze the fish, not quite catching them, making a "dink" as they steal the bait off of the hook. A barely counts as a miss in this game.
  • Miss: The fish eats the bait and laughs mischievously. If pressed too early, the fish will swim away.

I've heard that this lure is the absolute best for catching the elusive Threefish, but... I just can't bear to take it out of the package! It's mint in box! How could I destroy that?

Skill Star

When you are at the Quicknibble but gets away from a Threefish, you have to hook the Threefish at the right moment to collect the star.



  • The blue student from the DJ School makes a cameo appearance  in the Try Again rating screen of the game as a salesman where Ann Glerr goes to buy some fish after unsuccessful fiishing.
  • This game has slightly been upgraded in Megamix as there are less flying fish appearing in the screen where you are going to fish Quicknibble, while the original has more of them appearing through the screen. Also, Quicknibble and Pausegill's mouths when they are hooked were changed to be closed rather than being opened.
