“Even if there’s no body, there must be Ye Chen’s accomplices underwater who attached something else to his hook! If you guys don’t believe me, I’ll prove it to you guys tomorrow!”

Of course, in the live stream room, there were still some netizens who felt that what East Sea’s King of Fishing said was very reasonable.

However, most of the viewers fell into shock after hearing the officers’ words.

Other than the fact that the corpse was real, what shocked them even more was Ye Chen winning the bet he had made with Mr. Liao.

Ye Chen had sworn that he would catch a huge object that was worth more than 6 figures and more than 60 kilograms, and the corpse was probably more than 60 kilograms.

What made people’s hair stand on end was that according to the young officer, the family of the deceased would pay 200,000 as the reward for finding the body.

The locals strongly believed in identifying the corpse, even if they had to offer a reward, and it was customary for the other party to accept the reward.

That was why the audience in the live stream room was so excited.

“Say no more. I’ve spammed Carnivals. The rituals done before fishing really worked!”

“I used to think that the streamer was unlucky for catching a corpse. Who knew that it would get him 200,000 in one fell swoop? If finding a corpse can earn me 200,000, I wouldn’t be afraid of it.”

“It’s really terrifying. The fishing pro is really omnipotent. He knows his stuff!”

“Although I’m not very superstitious, it’s indeed a little inauspicious to have a rotten fish’s direct bite. Who would’ve thought that after the streamer did a ritual by the river, his luck would turn for the better?”

“I believe that this matter will definitely make it to the top of the search rankings tomorrow!”

“Pfft, haha. I really feel bad for the streamer. Although fishing 200,000 is something to be happy about, think about it. The streamer lived up to his title of Skunked King today!”

“Strictly speaking, this can’t be considered getting skunked. After all, he caught a rotten fish and a corpse. As for a live fish… Mr. Ye still can’t catch one!”

“That’s right. He still can’t catch a live fish. Mr. Ye is indeed the Skunked King!”

“I think the streamer is the most miserable one at this moment. So many people waited with bated breaths for a long time. They thought it would be a big fish, but in the end, they caught a corpse.”

“My heart aches, but I have a stronger urge to laugh. It’s definitely not intended as blasphemy against the dead, though!”

The audience in the live stream room expressed their opinions one after another.

At this moment, Ye Chen’s heart was filled with mixed feelings. Ye Chen wasn’t exactly happy.

After all, he had thought that it would really be a big black carp. Now that Ye Chen thought about it, he had actually struggled with catching a corpse for so long.

Moreover, the police were already there, so Ye Chen could no longer fish at night.

As a result, Ye Chen had not caught a single fish today.

Still, Ye Chen wasn’t exactly sad.

After all, 200,000 was not a small sum.

Previously, when Ye Chen bought his professional top-grade fishing gear, he had already spent almost all of his savings.

With 200,000, even though Ye Chen couldn’t do anything big, he could at least upgrade his fishing gear.

Ye Chen could also buy a small car and go to more places to fish.

Of course, Ye Chen did not forget the bet he had with Mr. Liao.

Although he had fished up a corpse, it was indeed a giant object, and it was a giant object worth 200,000.

The thought of Mr. Liao’s beautiful granddaughter helping him make a bait container and carry his bucket around made Ye Chen’s heart fill with joy.

At the same time, Ye Chen’s system had also undergone new changes.

Name: Ye Chen

Level: 2

Experience points: 15/500

Ability: Evil Warder

Achievements: Rotten Fish’s Direct Bite, Floating Corpse Night Encounter

Level up reward: mysterious treasure chest x1

Achievement reward: Floating Corpse Night Encounter treasure chest x1

Unlike previously where Ye Chen automatically got the Evil Warder ability recorded in the system, this time, Ye Chen got his rewards in the form of treasure chests.

Ye Chen had to manually open the treasure chest.

However, as there were many officers around, Ye Chen didn’t do so immediately. After all, the rewards inside would not run away.

Ye Chen planned to open it after he had dealt with the corpse.

When he thought of this, Ye Chen was filled with anticipation.

Since the system’s name was King of Fishing, the rewards inside were probably inseparable from fishing.

With the additional 200,000 he was about to receive, Ye Chen would be able to buy some higher-grade fishing gear.

Ye Chen could not help but look forward to his future fishing life.

But right now, he still needed to deal with the corpse.

At this moment, the young police officer speculated the possible identity of the deceased.

Captain Zhou Tao looked at Ye Chen in surprise, then asked the young officer, “Let me have a look at the photos and information of the deceased.”

The young police officer nodded, took out his mobile phone and fiddled with it for a while, then handed it to Zhou Tao.

Zhou Tao looked at his phone while sizing up the body on the ground.

After a few minutes, he returned the phone to the young officer and said, “You’re right. The middle-aged man who fell into the water 4 days ago matches this body in many aspects. Call the family and ask them to come and claim the body.”

Zhou Tao heaved a sigh of relief as it was a case of accidental death by drowning.

After all, as an officer, Zhou Tao hoped more than anyone that Jiang City would be safe and did not wish to receive any murder cases.

“Captain Zhou, I’ve already informed the deceased’s family members.”

Now, all Zhou Tao had to do was wait for the deceased’s family to come and claim the corpse.

Taking advantage of this free time, Zhou Tao began to size up the young man in front of him, who had caught a dead person while fishing.

The young man was in his early 20s and had a dark complexion. It was obvious that he had been fishing outside often under the sun.

Logically speaking, the locals preferred men with fairer skin.

Nevertheless, the young man’s skin color was a healthy bronze color and added to his handsomeness.

At the same time, the young man’s aura was very special.

In addition, the young man was wearing a magic arts robe, which made him look like the heir to a mountain sect master.

Logically speaking, if an ordinary person caught a corpse while fishing, they would probably be as petrified as the fishing pros in the area.
