July is a much quieter month than June’s shark influx, but there are certainly new scaled seafarers you’ll want to pick up. We also see the return of the mighty Blue Marlin this month, stabbing the seas with its big spike. On the bug front things are much more exciting, bringing all the cicadas and their churring to the island, as well plenty of stags. Don’t forget that this month will also introduce swimming, with new underwater creatures you can catch!
