How do you scoop the goldfish professionally?
When you visit here, and couldn’t scoop any goldfish, that’s so sad and not fun at all.
So this time, we’ll tell you some tips to enhance your performance.
- “Poi” has different sides
The thing that you scoop is called “Poi” (blue thing in the pic above) and it has up-side and down-side, so first thing that you have to do, is to ask which is the right side.
- Put the “Poi” into water collectlly.
You shouldn’t put your “Poi” into water horizontally, nor vertically. You have to put “Poi” diagonally into the water so that it won’t damage your “Poi”.
- Don’t follow the goldfish, wait till they come
Once you put your “Poi” into the water, you shouldn’t move quickly. So if you follow the fish, your “Poi” will be damaged quickly, and that’s why you have to wait till they come into your zone.
Well, it’s a bit difficult to explain in words, but the point is try not to damage the “Poi”!!
