2020 Memorial Day Weekend Fishing Tournament Over 4 million in prizes!!! Saturday May 23rd to Monday May 25th, 2020 https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/photos-from-the-1918-spanish-flu-pandemic/ Free to enter! No sign up required. Participating is easy!!! Fish all your heart desires, your eyes can strain, your attention can bare and simply post a screenshot of your big fish in this thread.... Big Fish datestamp must be between 5/23/2020 and 5/25/2020. Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney. Mounting a trophy fish will remove the datestamp. _______________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________ Rules: * The tournament will be held Saturday, May 23rd to Monday, May 25th, 2020. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on or between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UO:R time, US Central, -6 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. 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. _______________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________ Over 269 million in prizes given away in previous tournaments: May 2013 (600k+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-may-19th-–-june-1st.1719/ June 2013 (100k+) : http://uorforum.com/threads/weekend-fishing-tournament-–-fri-june-28-to-sun-june-30.1982/ August 2013 (500k+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-sunday-august-18th-saturday-24th.2417/ October 2013 (650k+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-saturday-oct-5th-–-saturday-oct-12th.2818/ January 2014 (800k+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-thur-jan-16th-thru-sun-jan-19th.3698/ March 2014 (60k): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-mini-tournament-results-3-22-3-23.4546/ April 2014 (50k): http://uorforum.com/threads/april-26th-fishing-tournament-50k.4874/ May I Fish? - May 2014 (10mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/may-i-fish.4866/ September 2014 (1mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-sept-12th-14th.6607/ Tournament X - January 2015 (3.75mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-fri-jan-16th-to-sat-jan-24th.7774/ May I Fish Too? - May 2015 (5mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/fishing-tournament-may-i-fish-too.9825/ Memorial Day Weekend 2015 (2mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/memorial-day-weekend-fishing-tournament.10388/ August 2015 (8mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/8-fishing-tournament-8-saturday-august-1st-to-saturday-august-8th.11301/ Full Moon Eclipse Fishing 2015 (6mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/full-moon-fishing-tournament-sat-sept-26th-to-wed-sept-30th.12843/ A Faber Fishing Tournament (7mil+): http://uorforum.com/threads/a-faber-fishing-tournament.14907/ I Day Fishing for I Million (1mil): http://uorforum.com/threads/i-day-fishing-for-i-million.15974/ May I Fish?
