Big Fish Question

Discussion in 'UO Fishing and Treasure Hunting' started by Amathist, Dec 5, 2010.

    I saw a post for a fishing contest on another forum, it required the heavy fish with name and DATE to be placed in a mailbox.

    Now this is a great idea as it means you can run the competition across a couple of days or over a whole day and do not actually have to be there for everyone to hand in as long as the fish are marked...BUT when I went to look up big fish on the stratics site it said this

    It does not say anything about them being marked with a date, does anyone know if this is just an over site or if you have to do something special to mark them with a date?

    Thanks RJM, I had hoped that was the case but as it was not mentioned on the stratics write up I just wasn't sure.

    And for the record... the date shown is Greenwich Mean Time. So don't be alarmed if you are getting a date that is a little off.

    On Pacific yesterday we had this contest. However, at 4pm PST, it becomes midnight GMT. The dates all went to the next day on us. Our fearless EM, though, stayed up until midnight PST to collect all the fish from the competition.

    Was a lot of fun. A few suggestions for those of you holding any fishing challenges:

    Our EM locked down the largest fish in the EM house during the competition. This way we were all able to see if our fish had been beaten. Made it a real competition.

    All fish were dropped off in a mailbox at the counsellors hall so it made things easy for everyone. The fish were secure and the EM could collect them at any time.

    Good luck to any future fishers in these competitions.
