Wii Party




45 Seconds


It takes two anglers to wrangle in these crazy fish! Pull up at the same time to make the catch.

Not to be confused with the Wii Party U counterpart: Fishing Buddies.

Fishin' Buddies is a Pair Minigame in Wii Party.


Shake the Wii Remote in time with the exclamation point on top of both Mii’s heads to reel in fish.


Both players have to catch as much fish as they can in 45 seconds. There are gold fish that require both players to tug at the same time. If they fail to catch the fish, they will not lose points. If the players reel in too early they will cast out their fishing poles a second or so later automatically.

Note: An exclamation point will appear on top of the Mii’s heads when they are about to reel in a fish.

Note: In Balance Boat, the player and their partner must catch at least five fish to qualify.
