    Launch those boats and get back to fishing because PGoH will be holding a monthly big fish competition to see just who is the best fisher around. Each month we'll ask for a specific type of fish and the person that catches the biggest one will win a thousand gold per stone of the fish. That's right if your hundred stone fish wins you'll win a hundred thousand gold just that quick. The bigger the fish the bigger the prize.

    Since we're already two weeks into November we'll do an easy one this month. The fish for November is the yellowtail barracuda. Prove your fish is the biggest by either showing me a picture here or contacting me to look at it.

    Only fish caught from today until the end of the month will be counted for the prize. If you post a picture of your fish then please make sure I can see the date it was caught.

    Good luck everyone!

    Little over a week left on this, surely someone has caught a yellowtail barracuda by now.

    Did you want to stop by my house in Olympus and show me to enter it in the contest? I'll be around for most of the day for anyone wishing to do so.

    131 stones. Caught on 11/20 by my Fisherman Keenbadger. It is locked down on my floor at my house. The K^S Vendor Mall. Located in Vesper. 95o 54'N 119o 31'E in Tram.

    If needed I could ask Brion to lock it down at Bait Shack for you to see.

    If you could that would be helpful, or you could post a screenshot of it for me. The bait shack is only a screen or two from my house so it wasn't a big deal for me to run by and check his.

    And Aedon... Sorry we're not accepting cans of tuna this month, maybe next time haha.

    Alright, just checked it. New leader is Keenbadger at 131 stones.


    One more week to go, i'll accept entries until the 3rd of December, but they have to be caught before the end of November. I'll award the prize on the 4th, or as soon after that as I can arrange to meet the winner. Look for the announcement for Decembers fish around the end of this week and good luck.

    Unfortunatly not. It has to be caught between the 14th and 30th since I started late this month. You still have time to beat 131 stones though.
