Memorial Day Weekend Fishing Tournament
Over 25k Event Tokens in prizes!

Friday, May 26th to Monday May 29th, 2023

Free to enter! No sign up required.
Participating is easy!!!
Fish as much as your heart desires, your eyes can strain,
and simply post a screenshot of your biggest fish in this thread....


Big Fish datestamp must be between 5/26/2023 and 5/29/2023.
Winning fish will be verified in game so keep fish until end of tourney.
Mounting a trophy fish will remove the datestamp.

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 posts the 100th fish. The angler who does the pre-determined action will win a prize. Our advice is to participate and turn in fish no matter how big or small.

* The tournament will be held Friday, May 26th to Monday, ,May 29th, 2023. All fish weighed in must have a datestamp on or between those dates. (Note: datestamp is based on UOAlive time, US EST)
* 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.
* If you are found AFK fishing you will be banned from UOAlive and the Tournament.
* 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 feat 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.
* In the case of a tie, we will see who can survive a sea serpent the longest or just give ya both a prize TBD lol....

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. 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.
well, after fishing a few times i can't beat Mustiff's small AND big catch, but here's mine anyway

I thought its about Big Fish, so I cut all another (Rare fishes and Legendary fishes). DPlease dont tell me I was wrong... :-( (got around 100 baracuda cuts)
Big Fish datestamp must be between 5/26/2023 and 5/29/2023.
there is a picture of a yellowtail barracuda so that leads me to believe that any fish that has a weight and date is game
Not nearly as good as some others, but here's mine... I also caught two within about 4 casts of each other that were both exactly 100 stones...

I did make out with 8 tmaps, 21 nets, and 40 mibs over the weekend though.

Thanks for running the event!

This is correct, big fish include more than just the "big fish" these days.
@Elamor if you have any other fish you can submit them still as long as they are dated for the weekend.
And the WINNERS ARE....
Smallest Catch goes to
@Schuyler Bain
Largest Catch goes to @Bambus2023
"Most Mis...Fishsteaks" goes to @Elamor
"Almost the biggest and the smallest" goes to @Mudpye
