Getting the Golden Scale from the fishing pond without a 15 lb fish/as child Edit
Discovered by Bettlescars (?)
Go to the fishing pond and pay to play. Catch a fish that will tie or break the current record (it starts at 6 lbs). Now go swimming in the pond, face the manager, hold Z and swim towards him. Without letting go of Z, talk to the manager and tell him to weigh your fish. If it ties or breaks the current record, you will get the Golden Scale. This works as child and adult, but is usually used as child because it's faster than getting the silver scale.
