    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 UO:R Staff 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.

    A random number generator will be used to determine the winners based on when the angler turned in their fish.
    For example, if an angler turned in the 15th fish and the generator produces a 15, that angler wins.
    https://www.random.org/


    Rules:
    * The tournament will be held Friday, May 27th to Monday, May 30th, 2022. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on or between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UO:R time, US Central, -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.
    Skill 0-65 - On land you will fish up Magic Fish, and Normal Fish.
    80+ - Sea Serpents (No SoS Message), Special Fishing Nets
    from a boat in deep waters.
    90+ - Treasure Maps 100 - Messages in a Bottle (aka MIB) / Waterstained SoS Message from a boat in deep waters.
    95+ - You can reel in Big Fish which can be used to make Trophies via Taxidermy Kits. Big Fish are loot on sea serpents (like treasure maps, ancient messages in a bottle, and special fishing nets) from a boat in deep waters.
    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 Discord). You will need a boat to get offshore into deep water to catch Big Fish. Deep waters are generally around 10 tiles from shoreline depending on the area.

    The Memorial weekend dawned Bright and Sunny, not the best weather for fishing, but the perfect one for spending the day one the water with good friends and copious amounts of ale, it had been over two years since Road Runner had been on the water with his good friends Father Christmas and A Giant Fish ( a funny name that one He had often thought) so they had been looking forward to this memorial day fishing tournament for a while. It didn't take long for the crew to stumble across a Kraken, It's shipwreck was no where to be found but a green scrap of parchment was discovered in its stomach, Not a bad start they thought.
    Almost Instantly it got better, "Fish On" shouted A Giant Fish, living up to his name and he brought it aboard.

    Not the biggest but it hopefully will be an omen for plenty more this weekend. Let the story continue

    The Fishing has slowed right down, so A Giant Fish decided to take part in another of his favorite passtimes,
