    It is early Saturday morning Texas time here and Paxlair is still salt water so we cannot do your spin off contest. Can you please correct this and let us know when we can fish there. Thanks

    Sorry everyone. I didn't realize the saltwater statue was up... it is a no trade item so I cannot pick it up. It's owned by Robyn Hood and for some reason there is no option for me to right click it and send it to her bank. I apologize for the inconvenience Ive contacted Robyn and will update the thread here once the statue is removed!

    Thanks to @Barugon The statue has been removed, so freshwater fishing is now available in Novia Market. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    For clarification, the deadline to enter for the first two daily 50k gold prizes (biggest and smallest fish) will be Saturday @11:59pm cst. Sundays prizes will run from 12:00am cst - 11:59pm and so on... for each day until 11:59pm cst October 17th.

    Due to generous donations from @Rixa Ultima and another resident who preferred to be anonymous I added in some more prizes! The following prizes will be awarded randomly to anyone who mails any type of trophy fish to Adam Crow during the entirety of the contest. The fish must be caught in Novia Market and it must be caught before 11:59pm October 17th.
    • 50k gold
    • 25k gold (x2)
    • 10k gold (×5)
    • 10 ancient essence (x3)
    • Blue Supply Bundle
    These 12 additional prizes will be randomly selected after the contest is over. Only one entry per character. No duplicate winners. If you win a daily prize you will not be eligible for these additional prizes. You can win as many daily prizes as possible though, no limit on those.

    If there are a lot of entrants, I may add some more prizes! Sorry again for the issue with the saltwater statue. Good luck fishing!

    Day 1 winner - @Engel who caught both the smallest and largest fish! A .69 Oscar Sunfish and a 2.28 King Salmon 100k
