Fishing Derby

18.3.4 Fishing Derby

The 'Royale' Fishing Derby is a fishing contest that anybody can take part in! During the event, everybody has access to the Fishing skill and can participate. All fishing during this event must be done with 'a competitor's fishing rod' sold at Hagriphim's shop within Esterport, or your catches won't count. You can pick up a competitor's rod from the shop at #53411.

The event is broken up into three rounds. Each round has a different objective to achieve, and will give out points depending on where you place in that round. Whoever scores the highest accumulated points at the end of the event will be considered the winner.

Please note that part of this contest is knowing where to find all the various fishing holes. We may specify where to find something at the start of the round, but we won't be answering people's questions on where to find a specific fish or hole during the event.
