    Then, at the Weigh-In event on February 15th, 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...

    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!

    Regarding Mud Puppies and Red Herring.

    These are both weighted fish and would appear to come under dungeon fish. However I need to do some more research into their approximate spawn rate, i.e. find out if it is similar to other rare fish, so I can't accept them for this round of the competition.
    Will have a definite ruling on this ready for the next round.

    The final update has been posted above.

    As has become my custom I won't be posting submissions made in the final 24 hours of the fishing window. So those may not be the final numbers. For that we will have to wait till the weigh-in event on Saturday night.

    Speaking of which the event on Saturday will be covered by...


    So be sure to tune in for a running commentary of all the action!

    Good luck to all anglers, and remember we will be going to hunt both Scalis and Charybdis after the award show.

    - Soar
