Monthly Fishing Contest
Every month Governor Zoogi of New Magincia holds a fishing contest open to all fishers. The Fish of the Month is determined by the previous month's winner. (The Fish of the Month can also be a crab or lobster.) To enter the contest, simply catch the contest fish and drop it in the Cat mailbox at the front of the New Magincia Auction House. You can either wait til the end of the month and drop in your biggest catch or drop off your biggest from each trip. The fish must be dated for the current contest month and be turned in soon after midnight of the last day of the month. (The Governor usually waits up til midnight to announce the winner.)
If the contest fish can be found with a Fish Finder, The Governor will pick a night to claim a fish finder and invite all who want to go fishing. The finder will last for 4 hours. If The Governor leaves early, he will hand off the finder and control of his boat. You can bring a packie to keep all the fish you catch or simply let them fall at your feet. A bag is recommended for footwear since they will sometimes block boat movement.
Once the contest is over, all fish dropped in the mailbox will be returned if you wish. The winning fish will be made into a trophy (if it can) and will hang at the front of the Auction House for the next month. Once the next winner is ready to hang, the trophy fish will be given back to the owner. Often, if the contest fish is one of the harder to catch (think Dungeon Pike or Lantern Fish), The Governor or another Donor will donate a cash prize. Every month I will bump this post with the new fish and the winner. (The Governor also does this on Stratics.) Hope to see a full mailbox!
