    King Blackthorn has issued a challenge to all Fishermen (and women) in the Kingdom. All Fish caught on or between March 10th and March 30th are to be weighed with an honor going to the largest "Legendary" or "Trophy" fish - which will be mounted and hung on the wall of Castle Blackthorn for all to see. The Smallest Weight fish will be given to the Cooks of the Castle for display on the Kitchen Tables. In addition, the Largest Rare or Legendary Crab/Lobster will be cooked for the King's Table (displayed on his plate). These items shall remain until another such contest replaces them.

    Fish dated prior to March 10th, or after March 30th will not be eligible. Please drop off your best catch in the chests by the King's Throne in the Council Chambers on Serpent's Hold before Midnight on March 30th.

    It seems that the chests no longer work as intended. Please drop off contest entrants in the mailbox by the King's Throne in the Council Hall on Serpent's Hold.

    Please note that to win the "Largest fish" and be mounted to display on the King's Wall, it must be a "Trophy" fish that can be mounted. Many of the entries can not be mounted and are not "trophy/Legendary". The post above has been edited to move the non-trophy fish to the "Non-Qualifying" section.

    For a list of appropriate fish - please see the "Trophy" column on this page from UOGuide.

    The small fish and crab/lobster classes do not require mounting so the field is open to any Rare/Legacy fish/crab/lobster.

    ummm standard lobsters and crabs weigh 1 stone and some crabs and lobsters can be mounted. I have a void crab on a plaque in my home.

    The criteria for Lobster/Crabs was just largest - whether it is mountable or not. This is because the largest Lobster/Crab will not be mounted but will instead be on the King's plate in Blackthorn's Castle. Only the largest qualifying fish will be mounted on the wall.

    And the winners are!

    Trophy/Legendary Fish:
    191 Stone - Summer Dragonfish - by Sara Dale

    Smallest Fish: 7 Stone - A Big Fish - by Malloc (As this fish only shows the "Sender" and no "Caught by Date" or "Name", the 20 Stone - Reaper Fish - by Sara Dale will also be honored. I am afraid that the "Sender Malloc" title will drop off at some point.)

    Largest Crab/Lobster: 20 Stone - Blue Lobster - by Garfield

    It seems Malloc's "Big Fish" has dropped the "Sender Malloc" tag and the weight already. It is still on display though in memory of his catch.
