    Ahoy Mates!

    Organized by The City of Trinsic, the competition be open to all anglers across all the seas.

    Catch Window : Friday, 1st Nov. -> Friday, 15th Nov. (15 days)
    Weigh-In Event : Saturday 16th November, 9:00pm EST.
    Place : Trinsic Docks, Trammel.

    The catch window will be from November 1st to November 15th, 2013. Only fish tagged between, and including, these dates will be eligible for entry in their appropriate category.

    To submit a fish for judging, all ye need to do is drop it in the mailbox at the Surf Shack on Trinsic south beach, which be here..

    Then, at the Weigh-In event on November 16th, we be announcing the winners for all categories and awarding prizes to the lucky anglers. Ye can also turn in any last minute entries by hand at the event. However, please note that fish caught on the day of the Weigh-In will be outside the catch window, and so will not be eligible.

    After the prizes have gone out, it'd be our great honor if all hands would join us for some good ol' fashioned cannon cracking aboard the Trinsic naval ships. We'll be taking on two of the sea's greatest beasties...

    Anyways, ye probably be wanting to know a little more about the fishing competition, so here be the fiddly bits...

    The Ways Of the Contest
    - Ye can submit as many fish as ye like, in as many categories as ye like.
    - Only fish submitted in game via the designated mailbox, or handed to the judges on the day of the Weigh-In event, will be accepted. (No screenshots)
    - Ye may only win one of the listed categories, with the exception of the two final categories X & Z (see below).
    - The final winners will be announced, and prizes awarded, at the Weigh-In event. It may be possible to pick up yer prize after the event if a time can be arranged.
    - In the case where one fisherman submits multiple fish that win different categories, the fisherman will be awarded victory in the category covering his/her largest fish only. If the fish are of the same weight, the judges will decide which category to award.
    - The two final categories X and Z will be awarded to the biggest qualifying fish submitted in the previous categories A through H.
    - The weight of biggest fish submitted thus far for each categories will be listed in the table at the bottom of this post. The table will be updated once a day, in the early morning hours.
    - If ye would like yer fish back after the competition, please submit them in a bag with a rune to a public mailbox where they may be returned. However, we are encouraging people to donate them to the Fishing Record Museum, and this is where all record breaking un-claimed will be sent.
    - Lastly, in the event of any controversy, the judge's decisions be final in all things.

    *turns parchment over and finds nothing*

    Looks like that be all the whats n' hows of it mates.

    We'd like to encourage ye all to donate yer winning catches to the Fishing Record Museum, run by the fine mariners of Castaways. It be up to yeself of course. If ye be interested in seeing the museum, ye can visit anytime at this location...

    I be looking forward to meeting ye all and weighing up some mighty catches on Trinsic docks a fortnight from now.

    Fair winds and bent poles to ye mates!

    There was last time, it was a surprize boobie prize. It would have been hard to advertise it as you don't get smaller than 1 stone, and 1 stone fish are not as rare as the upper limits.

    It won't be in this round, but that's not to say there won't be *any* surprise categories. ;)

    We have a new board leader, and it's a bigg'n!

    So that everyone knows, it is believed fish weight caps around 225, so still an open field.

    Last five days mates.

    Today is the final update of the top weights table mates.

    I like to leave the last day or two of submissions a mystery till the Weigh In event night, so you never can be sure until the fat mermaid sings...

    There was mention of a new guild that had been created or soon to be created for fisherman, I didnt get the chance to talk with anyone about joining but it did appeal to me to join a guild that primarily focuses on FISH. Also I wanted to take the opportunity to extend congratulations on an awesome event and what an awesome job everyone did that helped to make it possible. Salutes
