I have been lurking on this board for about 2 years now, getting information, using the guides, reading the posts, ect ect.
For the past week I have been reading up on the STV fishing contest. I was just always scared to actually do it, because I never win these kinds of things.
Well, today I said f-it and decided to join in this time, hoping to at least get third for the achievement. At the end, I managed to get first place. I have no idea how, but I want to thank all of you for all the hints, tips, and strategies that you have all shared. I don't think I could of done it with out them.
The scary part came when I got back to booty bay and saw 5 people gathered around the NPC. I said "great, I so don't have this" but I quickly ran to him, clicked on him, it came up with the list of items, clicked the pole, clicked continue then he announced that I got first place and the achievement popped.
It was amazing, and probably the most fun I have ever had in this game. This is definitely going on my high light reel (hah pun).
Again, thank you all for the tips and hints. And thank you to El. Dude, I love you and fucking love this site.
