    May I Fish Too?
    Fishing Tournament begins on May Day!
    Friday May 1st to Saturday May 9th.

    I will be contacting winners to verify fish and distribute prizes.
    Hold tight. Will take a few days so have patience as when fishing.
    Many thanks.

    Over 5 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 of a sea serpent which is caught offshore in deep waters)


    Post screenshot of catch in this thread.
    Big Fish datestamp must be between 5/1/2015 & 5/9/2015
    Winning fish will be verified ingame so keep fish until end of tourney and don't mount.
    Mounting a fish will remove the datestamp.

    An angler can place only one fish in the biggest slot and only one fish in smallest slot.
    (for example- Mr Fisher can win 3rd biggest and 1st smallest, BUT NOT 1st and 5th biggest. Also, a player with multiple fishers can place both Mr Fisher & Ms Fisher in 2nd and 5th place biggest. Point is one angler can not take 1st and 3rd with same fisher but CAN take 1st and 3rd with two different fishers.)
    Players can use multiple fishers however fish is ALWAYS credited to the angler (character tagged on fish).
    A player can use Mr. Fisher, Ms. Fisher, Fisher Jr. But above applies.

    Fishing Feats: How to win these prizes will not be announced but 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.

    One of the prizes is a full set of ancient message in the bottle scrolls (aMIB)
    Learn more about the aMIB system: http://uorforum.com/threads/renaissance-blog-ancient-soss.1709/

    There are 11 Fishing Feats in the 11th Tournament.

    May I Fish?
    ][

    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held Friday May 1st, 2015 to Saturday May May 9th, 2015. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on/between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOR server time, US Central, -5 GMT)
    * 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 are using more than one fisher)
    * 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 and 3rd 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 Footwear, 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% fishing on land, but deep sea fishing gives much faster skill gains.
    Monsters will never spawn by fishing from land.




    Gideon's Grab Bags!!!
    Lord Gideon Jura added another pot of prizes!

    These will be awarded for accomplishing something....
    Something deemed worthy and not predetermined.

    If people concentrated on the really important things in life...there would be a shortage of fishing poles !
