    Alrighty! The next week's contest has started!

    I initially thought they looked silver too but I think it may be the lighting effect over powering the colour.

    Ah ya, our participation trophies are silver. I just assumed they were bronze, but the Consolation trophy is bronze. Updated the main thread to match what I've been giving out. Good "catch" angler :)

    Anyway so happy to win large trophy! I had no luck with lava fishing, only ammonites, but I really like the lava fishing in the secret, secret area of the foothills! That area alone was worth the discovery:)
