    This month's fishing competition will run from November 10th to 17th at six pm eastern. There are two requested fish for this month based upon skill levels. The normal fish is the Yellowtail Barracuda. Yellowtail Barracuda are caught in deep water in Trammel, and is reported to have been caught by fishermen as low as Adept (82). The prizes for the Yellowtail Barracuda 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. The fish for legendary fishers is the Blue Marlin. Blue Marlin are caught in deep water in Trammel, and are reported to require a little over grandmaster skill (105). The prizes for the Blue Marlin will be a million gold check paid for the biggest fish turned in, five hundred thousand for second place, and two hundred fifty thousand for third place.

    All fish must be caught during the week between the 10th and 17th of November at 6 pm eastern. Winners will be announced at 8 pm on the 17th of November at the docks in Trinsic. Fish you have caught for the competition may be turned in at the city herald in Trinsic, or to the governor or one of his representatives. 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. Fishers may enter both types of fish but can only win one category. Fish will be returned upon request of the fisherman, after prizes have been awarded. Any unclaimed fish will be used in a way that benefits the city.

    In addition to the largest fish prizes we will also be awarding prizes for the fishers that catch fish that match the weight of the biggest and smallest of the five Yellowtail Barracuda that are caught by my independent fisher. As well as the fisher that comes closest, without going over, of the average weight of all entries in both categories.

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