    Hi,
    Again, Rajazel is pleased to welcome catnip weekly fishing tourney from friday 6 nov noon to friday 13 noon.

    As a spin off, i will give 1000 cotos if the overall winner of the catnip’s tournament is caught in my town.

    In addition, there will be a weekly prize for the tallest sailfish, marlin, swordfish, and tiger shark. The prize will be 500 cotos for each of the winning catch.
    I have put four chest on a row lot at the docks with the appropriate fish name where you can deposit your longest catch of the week.
    Also, the person who deposit one of each mentionned fish in the chests, will be eligible for the Rajazel fishing champion community trophy.

    All trophy fish will be returned.

    Stay tuned also for daily flash fishing tournament. They will be announced a couple hour prior to the event.

    Rajazel hopes you will enjoy your visit,

    Lijuan zhang

    Catnip games and community,

    Thank you for the fishing contests and nice participant prizes. But the greatest prize for me was the inspiration to work on Fishing so that I finally am able to fish in lava!

    Ysold.

    Another week is upon us! Good luck, Anglers! Here's the details:

    I'm OK with saltwater for next week but doesn't it change each week?

    Also @Elgarion off topic a bit but can something be done about the snowy Biome fishing? Can you please mention? Someone made the decision to take fishing out of the frozen lake instead of implementing some form of ice fishing. Instead the quick way decided upon was to put 3 pools of water not even on the lake but a distance away(difficult to find) that have very little fishing capabilities. The snowy Biome really lost out in the fishing game imo.

    if i recall correctly that was because there was conflict between being able to place water lots on ice and being able to fish there. you can't have both.

    Really it was mostly just the easiest band aid for the moment. Anyway carry on here. I'm not rallying for this to be priority since it isn't. So many details in other areas of the game are needed. I can fish in Wizards Rest or anywhere. I was just mentioning.
