    It's that time again. This month's fishing competition will run from April 11th to 18th. The requested fish for this month is the Giant Koi. The prizes for this competition will depend on the size of the fish you can catch. The biggest fish will win you five thousand gold per stone of weight of the fish. The second place fish will win you three thousand gold per stone of weight. Third place will win two thousand gold per stone of weight. An additional million gold check will be awarded to any of the top three fish that are over two hundred stones in weight. All fish must be caught during the week between the 11th and the 18th at 6 pm eastern. Winners will be announced at six thirty on the 18th at the docks in Trinsic. Fish you have caught for the competition may be turned in at the city herald in Trinsic, to Governor Thom, or you may of course bring them with you to the docks. Please note that the herald is fairly weak so if it won't accept your fish it may be full and you may have to try again later. Multiple fish may be turned in, but only the largest of your catch will be considered for the largest fish prize. Fish will be returned upon request of the fisherman. The top fish, if not returned, will be made into a trophy and displayed at the Bayside Stadium in Olympus. Any other unclaimed fish are subject to being made into steaks and/or pies and sold for the funding of future events.

    (Note: I am usually in game or online between the hours of 4 pm and 10 pm eastern. Ask for me in Global Chat, PM me here, or icq me at #270755567 to arrange delivery of your fish)

    Drydock it and take it there. Alternately you can use a different character on that account to place a boat there to use while you keep your normal boat where it is. That last one is what I usually do when i'm ready to go somewhere else to fish.

    Since this thread is littered with fishers I'd like to ask a question, How long does it take to gm fishing, and what benefits come from it besides sos's.

    Well for one as you mentioned the sos's: there is the gold you accumulate. The gems, reagents and imbue ingredients. Then there are the deco items. You have to high level fisher to reel in the ingredients for the fish pies. I realize not everyone uses them, butttttttt at least in that respect, we are needed!

    I was wondering cause I was thinking about making one as I have a free slot I once got to 67 but Was a bit bored. I have a t-Hunter which I find fun and I remember doing SoS's of Test when I'd fool around. And yeah the cookables were kinda a big deal on Europa RP where you didn't have mods Grapes of Wrath were nice for nuking people down, also means I'd have to make a cook again... I only have so many soul stones people!

    Also macroing doesn't the spot dry up after a few casts?

    I finished off my fishing using crab traps. If you do it right you get a lot more chances to gain then with regular fishing.

    I would like to thank everyone that submitted fish for the competition this month and offer my congratulations to the winners for April. Third place went to Ezekial who won 324k for his 162 stone fish. Second place was a very respectable 180 stone fish caught by Elektra who won 540k. And first place was awarded to Sir Jeff with an extremely nice 190 stone fish that netted him 950k. The random prize was awarded to the fisher that came closest to the average weight of all entries. This month that was A Miss Take who won a fishing pack with a spell channeling no negative fishing pole along with a set of hooks.
