    2016 Sturgeon Fishing Tournament
    (The August full moon is regarded as the Sturgeon Moon)
    Thursday August 18th to Sunday August 21st

    [​IMG]

    Over 6 million in prizes!!!
    Anyone can enter tournament - no signup required, no entry fee!

    (95+ fishing is required to catch a "Big Fish", tis by-catch (loot) of a sea serpent which is caught offshore in deep waters)

    Post screenshot of catch in this thread.
    Big Fish datestamp must be between 08/18/2016 to 08/21/2016
    Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount.
    Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp.

    Bonus Prize: The first angler to weigh in a 200 stone or 1 stone fish will win an additional 1 million gold.

    Fishing Feats: How to win these prizes will not be announced rather awarded to the angler who accomplishes a pre-determined feat. For example, there might be a prize for the angler who turns in the 100th fish. The angler who does the pre-determined action will win the prize. I will be submitting a list of these pre-determined feats and prizes to Telamon before the Tournament begins to ensure there isn't a perception of a bias in awarding prizes. My advice is to participate and turn in fish no matter how big or small.

    [​IMG]

    Fishing Feats not accomplished will be given away in a lottery based on when the angler turned in their fish. A random number generator will be used to determine the winner. For example, if an angler turned in the 15th fish and the generator produces a 15, that angler wins the prize.
    Winners: #17 & #78

    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held from Thursday August 18th to Sunday August 21st, 2016. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR server time, US Eastern, -5 UTC)
    * Prizes will be distributed the following week.
    * Fish weighed in will be credited to the angler, not who turns. Anyone can submit fish for any angler. Angler must be present to claim winnings.
    * Use as many fishers as you like. Again, fish is credited to angler marked on fish. (some players use more than 1 fisher)
    * An angler can only place 1 fish in biggest and smallest categories. For example, Fisher X might have a 10 stone and a 12 stone fish however only the 10 stone will be credited in the smallest category. In addition, Fisher X can also place in biggest with a 199 stone fish.
    * No sign up required! Simply post a screen shot of your catch but keep it for prize reward and... DO NOT MOUNT FISH. Mounting a fish will erase datestamp. Fish will need to be verified ingame to collect your prize. Only fish weight will only be recorded. You keep your catch.
    * Anglers tied will split the prizes of the two respective places. For example, Anglers tied for 2nd place will split the winnings for 2nd and 3rd place.

    Notes on Fishing:
    Double-click on a fishing pole, then click on a body of water. If successful, you will catch a fish. You might catch something more interesting than a fish. Success with this skill also depends on the availability of fish in that specific area.
    0-65 - On land you will fish up Magic Fish, and Normal Fish.
    80+ - Sea Serpents (No SoS Message), Special Fishing Nets.
    90+ - Treasure Maps 100 - Messages in a Bottle (aka MIB) / Waterstained SoS Message
    95+ - You can reel in Big Fish which can be used to make Trophies via Taxidermy Kits.
    You can get to 100 skill/Grandmaster fishing from land and monsters will never spawn when fishing from land.
    Once you have attained 95+ fishing, acquire a boat. They are player-made (check player vendors, forums, or IRC). You will need a boat to get offshore into deep water to catch Big Fish.

    Many thanks to the generous sponsors and UOR staff
    who make these Tourneys possible!

    Believe it or not, this is not the same fish. Caught two 76ers back to back.
