Fishing Event Deadline
There were some comments about the running fishing event, concerning the entry of record fish, I will discuss this topic briefly here.
Some fishermen have the opinion that there should be a maximum deadline for freshly-caught record fishes.
That means that a fish must be returned within a certain period of time to be included in the event.
This would prevent that a fisher hold the fish till the end of the event to break several records at once.
I suggested to run a vote about this, but after I thought about it I came to the conclusion that this is not practicable.
Several reasons have led me to decide against a deadline.
A: I cannot check exactly when a fish were stored in the mailbox
B: I cannot guarantee that I have time every day to look in to the mailbox
C: There can be reasons why you do not have the opportunity to submit your catch
These are the reasons why I don’t want a deadline.
It would be nice if everyone would submit his fish close to the catch date to ensure a dynamic event.
Finally, the currently top three fishermen on Drachenfels.
1st place: Paul Bocusse with 14 records
2nd place: Allanon with 12 records
3rd place: Tony Fisher with 5 records
