    Summer Greetings,

    We are in the process of planning a large summer fishing contest to run from Thursday, July 4th at 12:00am until Sunday July 21th at 12:00am. We anticipate that the contest will be streamed at various times by in game players: Phamyns, Taikee Vetrea, Alpha Fishstick, Flair Minamoto and Robyn Hood.

    The contest rules:

    Location: All zones with fishing, all types of fish, including lava.

    Fish drop off: Crossroads Alley's has a dedicated lot across from the docks dedicated to the contest with fish submission drop off chests and public cache chest for contest supplies such as bags, poles, clothing etc.

    Rules: Contestants can submit their largest fish of each and every type from any zone during the contest period. The total combined length of all fishes submitted will be added in a trackable online spreadsheet to determine to the top 5 winners. Bonus prizes will be given out for collecting each fish of all categories as well as some other special prizes.

    Prizes: Most will come from donations of players but anything Portalarium can add would be greatly welcomed.

    Thank you and respectfully yours,

    Strider Green

    What can I say? OMG what a boring 2 weeks, fish, fish and more fishing :) Did get my first sharks, small moss and large Pacu but the gar and sturgeon still allude me.
    Thanks for the competition and trophy, though it was only the first 5!

    Now back to doing what I like most, Deco!
