    lol, mine probably might not contest but I'd just put it up coz I thought it wasnt that big as first so dumped it in my ship's hatch and forgot bout my ship which got sunk without refreshing it.

    Fish Size: 189 Stones
    Shard: Formosa caught along the server line east of Moonglow too.
    Time: sometime in mid January.

    I wonder what was the largest fish size for last yr?

    I think it was Iffuls at 218. I'm still trying to find som of the old stuff to verify, but that sounds right.

    And here I thought the 98 stone big fish I caught earlier in the harbor of Chesapeake's Buccaaneer's Den might be on the hight end weight-wise. :)

    Oh well. It looks good on the wall. :thumbsup:

    The biggest fish I caught had 106 stones. It was a good catch, as I was Dread Lord at that moment and the fish said:

    A big fish
    Weight: 106 stones
    Caught by Lord Hawkeye Pike

    I used a taxidermy kit and turned it into a wall decoration. Very nice!

    Lord Rexxmortis fishing up Serpeants for a few days now. I have three in my hold and keep rotating when i get a heavy one.

    I dropped a boat in Tokuno to see if I can get a ToT while out fishing and just pulled in a 174 stoner ( 4 July, 4 PM, Tokuno)

    (Trying to put pic here)

    154

    3 Stones Littlest Big Fish LMAO 6:14 PM Tokuno



    Tossing my nets off an island in Tokuno and got a Mempo :thumbup:

    Have a TON of horned leather now anyone know a good use for it?

    well when my hold changes ill update.

    Hows about we have a monthly fishing derby, lets say 25K entry fee and winner takes all. (of course any amount would be kool 5k - 1 mil)

    Im on ATL ATM but I am sure we could work with a Broker and have all shards compete?

    Ok I am trowing this out there again.

    I am thinking of starting a monthly big fish derby.

    Rules;

    Entry fee 250k Winner takes all (are there any broker who would help support this on participating shrards so winner can take all?)

    Fish must be presented to judge in fish form (NOT Mounted).

    Fish will be mounted by judge once presented so there wont be any using of the same fish over again.

    Fish will be presented at arond 8 PM EST (adjustable) on the last day of the month.

    Prize will be given to winner following last entry.



    I will contact a few broker to see if any are willing to support this and what shards they are avail on.

    Let me know if anyone thinks this wil work out?

    Re: Montlhy Big fish Derby?


    I like the idea...I have had similiar ideas myself. But there is now way to ensure the fish was caught during the derby....or that it isn't the same fish used on past events.

    I know friends with trunks full of big fish.

    I wish the big fish would be date stamped...then it would be excellent

    Here are my 2 best from this year. The 197 is my best so far, so was mounted and placed the day I caught her. However, the Red Herring is now my personal favorite. :)

    Ack! I could have sworn I didn't see the 2010 thread! Thanks for letting me know. I know 78 stones is puny as far as big fish go, but I'm just tickled I finally stuck with fishing long enough to actually catch a big fish.
