In Hotcha Springs (Level 2-1), get to the part where there is a little rock below the door you just entered, little white fish to the top left corner of the stage that inflate when you touch them, and a line of fish to each side of you. Start by going to one line of fish and using the spin attack to take out the line of them, then go to the other side and take out that line. Keep repeating this, going from one side to the next, until you get as many pearls as desired.Super Mario World reference
