    Join us as we kick off a monthly challenge for the angling crowd here on Legends. Much like the "catch of the week" done on other shards we will be doing our very own! Each month we shall issue a different species to be caught as the biggest fish turned in for the month. We hope by having an entire month to seek out and land the designated species we'll attract not only more entrants but larger specimens as well!
    This months species with be the "Blue Marlin". Caught in deep waters around the realm this species is also mountable. The heaviest fish labeled with this months date shall be hung in the shard reward hall along with a take home trophy for the winning angler!
    The turn in location will be the High Seas Angling Club located along the docks at the Fish Market. Turn in date is March 31st, 2011 at 9pm EST. Take to the seas Legends and lets see what ya got!

    What a month for the high seas angling challenge! We had a first this month as Otis Redding (July's Champion) and Starbuck came to the weighins on the final day of July with fish of the same weight! 188 stone Autumn Dragonfish!

    After much thought a "fish off" was implemented with both anglers setting out on the seas for an hours time to return with the largest regular big fish they could muster. While the Anglers rushed to the challenge mischief ensued along the seamarket docks as Abominable Sea Creatures, krakens, Leviathans, and other tangled seaweeds of the high seas rose from the depths spreading havoc and death amongst the spectators!

    Congratulations to Starbuck on winning the fish off in grand fashion landing a 189 stone "big fish" to take the months challenge! Thier catch is proudly displayed at the shard reward hall. Naming this months prey Starbuck let it be known under the champions provision that Septembers game shall be the elusive Blue Lobster!

    Lava fish skunked us in December, with no clear winning entry I have chosen January'@ fish to be the regular ol school "big fish" in either blue or green. Biggest fish caught during the month will be named the winner, let's see those 200 stone whoppers! Weighins will be 1/31 @ 9pm at the trammel seamarket.

    Congratulations to Mr. Pickles! Besting the field to claim victory in January's High Seas Angling Challenge! With a great catch at 158 stone he was a good 20 stones ahead of his closest competition. Awarded with a citation for his catch, his choice for this months fish is the Giant Samurai Fish!

    We were also treated a great new game as Miko discovered something quite in the realm of seafaring fun this month. Something we'll be running this month as well as competitors teamed up after weighins to play "Fish in a Barrel." We placed anglers into two teams of three and placed aquariums (which still reside with fish in the aquarium for public care....) out and raced to put 4 of a ceratin species into the tank. The result was mad net tossing fun with the seamarket docks covered in aquarium fish and bones soon alike. Good Luck!
