    As part of the leadup to the city of Trinsic's market day we would like to encourage the fishers of the land to participate in a fishing competition to be held between January twelfth and nineteenth. We would like to call on all fishers of all skill to attempt to catch the biggest yellowtail barracuda that they can. The prizes for this competition will depend on the size of the fish you can catch. The biggest fish will win you five thousand gold per stone of weight of the fish. The second place fish will win you three thousand gold per stone of weight. Third place will win two thousand gold per stone of weight. An additional million gold check will be awarded to any of the top three fish that are over two hundred stones in weight. All fish must be caught between midnight on the twelfth and six pm eastern on the nineteenth. Winners shall be announced at six thirty on the nineteenth at the stage in the Market of Trinsic near the docks. Fish you have caught for the competition may be turned in at the city herald in Trinsic, to Governor Thom, or you may of course bring them with you to the market.

    (Note: I am usually in game or online between the hours of 4 pm and 10 pm. Ask for me in Global, or icq me at #270755567 to arrange delivery of your fish)

    Today is the last full day of fishing before the weigh in at 6 tomorrow evening. There's still time to catch a top 3. For those interested, I will be announcing next months fish, and the week it will run, at the conclusion of the weigh in and awards for this months competition.
