Sam, Harry, and Alicia all went on a fishing trip. One fish was caught at 9:00 am, one at 8:45 am, and one at 9:30 am. Three types of fish were caught: tuna, bass, and mackerel. Can you figure out who caught what fish and at what time?

Clues are as follows:

1. Sam didn't catch the mackerel.
2. Harry fell asleep after Sam and Alicia caught their fish, only to be surprised with a bite.
3. Alicia made fun of her comrade for catching a tiny tuna fish.
4. Sam didn't get the first catch.
5. Harry was proud of his fish, which wasn't a mackerel.
6. The tuna was caught third.

Nice logic puzzle, thanks!

That was really easy! I got it with just the first four clues.

Same here, I also only needed the first 4 clues.

I love logic grid, so this one was easy but fun!

The first 4 clues tell you what time everyone caught their fish, but only rule out Alicia catching the tuna and Sam catching the mackerel. You really do need the last two clues to solve the puzzle, unless you are guessing.

You don't need the 5th hint.

easiest way (imho) is to go along with the clues: 6 - 2 - 1 - 4

3 & 5 are not necessary ... maybe for the hint-section?

bloody-albatros is correct: clues 3 and 5 are redundant. Each of 1, 2, 4, and 6 are necessary to make the solution unique, even with 3 & 5 in the mix. Here are alternate solutions (in time order) if one of the 4 other clues is omitted:

Without clue #1: (Alicia, Bass; Sam, Mackerel; Harry, Tuna).
Without clue #2: (Harry, Bass; Alicia, Mackerel; Sam, Tuna).
Without clue #4: (Sam, Bass; Alicia, Mackerel; Harry, Tuna).
Without clue #6: (Alicia, Mackerel; Sam, Tuna; Harry, Bass).
