Kistrel's Spotlight: AJ Leibengeist

  Hello and welcome back!  I baked cookies and have the kettle on with the beverage of your choice ready and waiting.  So whether you are taking a break between buoys or having a read between casts, we really appreciate you dropping by to peruse this weeks spotlight.   There is no doubt this is a creative individual based on the different themes across the land.  In addition to that, he is a very welcoming and charming host who made a rather impressive grand entrance on a hoverboard when meeting him at one, of the MANY buoys, found on his land.  Covering 3 Regions and home to 16 buoys,  there is plenty of fishing to be had (amongst many other attractions)!  Collectively called TCGWS and with it's own hud for ease of getting around the many buoys, it is my pleasure to introduce our next spotlight--so let's raise a glass (maybe light a smoke?) and hear it for AJ Leibengeist!  Q:  So AJ, would you care to share any of your Second Life journey including how and when you found Fish

Kistrel's Spotlight: Kelly Huntsman!


Thank you to all the readers who have popped along to peruse our next Spotlight!
For as long as I have been in LGH (which hasn’t been a hot minute in comparison to many others!) this individual has usually graced the podium on a weekly basis and if not, definitely securing a top 10 position.

As if that wasn’t enough to keep the average person busy, she also leads a Kingdom, is owner of one of my personal fav fishing locations and has a VERY helpful website that I would highly encourage anyone using potions and farming to check out!

So I would like to present to all my LGH family and friends (this is where the obligatory drum roll comes in!)…………...Kelly Huntsman!!  

Firstly, I would like to thank Kelly for taking the time to have a chat with me and share some of her journey within LGH and maybe even a tip or two along the way!

Q:  So Kelly, would you care to share any of your Second Life journey including how and when you found Fish Hunt with us?

A: Like most people in SL for over a decade, 'been there, done that' is about the right answer to the journey. Except fishing, which I hadn't really tried, until one of my besties and LGH Mods, Takarra peer pressured me into trying it. A brand spanking new rod, a blue buoy to call my own for our land, 1 little farm with a water pump and bio, and as they say, the rest is history.

Q: Kelly,  with so many fishing successes over the years, would you mind sharing what you think are the most memorable and why these stand out?

A: Well as far as years..I barely went over a year recently. I claim February 21st, 2023 my official start date for fishing, which is when I got my competitor rod. When it comes to successes, I think my first royal fish hunt win is up there as one of the most memorable, because I learned an important lesson that you can burn out playing this game and spend way too much L if you get too wrapped up in winning. Having fun is the most important thing so when three of us were on the podium from P**nfish at the same time, I think that is the top most memorable experience yet.

Q:  Overall,, how many hours would you guess you have fished over the years and do you have any other activities you enjoy doing in Second Life...time permitting that is!

A: Funny you asked that, because last April I actually started keeping track of how many buoys I have fished each week so I would know if I'm spending too much time doing it. It's not an exact number because of buoys that may run out of fish, but I'd say it's very very close. Since last April I've fished approximately 4500 buoys. Since I mostly use tasty worms, that is about 3,375 hours of fishing. When first starting out I did not fish anywhere near as much as I do now...but in recent months I usually fish at least 10 buoys a day minimum.

Q: What rod and worms do you regularly use and does this vary by event?  Do you utilize potions/shubbies etc?

A:  Gahh looking for all my secrets! Just kidding not a big secret. I use the C2 Elemental rod now, which honestly I really didn't want to get, it's so expensive but when everyone around you is getting them it is hard not to so I can keep up. I love tasty worms, they seem just about right for my style since I really don't fish to make L, but I do at least break even using them. I do use enchanted occasionally because they are super fun to use, and fun is the name of the game, but I won't ever break my bank using them ever again just to keep up with anyone. All things in moderation is the key I think, even in fishing. Green shubbie is my go to, but I do have a red I like to whip out on weekends for double XP. That little sucker loves to eat so definitely just the weekends or when using enchanted worms with alacrity turned on, since it's a 22 second cast. In comparison a magic worm will only get you around a 20 second cast even with a red shubbie and alacrity on. (That was an extra secret hint for you there hehe)

Q: What are your favourite fishing locations and why?

A: I do love our own P**nfish area, but I tend to not fish it often. If I ever won the fishpot from my own buoy it would seem soooo lame. Thunderchilds buoys are probably my favorites because AJ is the greatest host of all time in LGH in my opinion. He probably should be our honorary proxy King in society just from all that he gives the community. Always some nice fishpots and it's fun to find a random multi running with no one around. So many places have really neat set ups, it's impossible to really rank them. Love to all the LOs for sure!

Q: What advice would you give to new fishers who are just starting out in their LGH journey?

A:  With fishing you will either hate it or become a super duper crazy addict. While you can technically make L from it, you really need to go into the game with simply having fun as the goal. Start out slow and learn the numbers, because getting really into this is all about numbers and percentages. Things constantly change around here. Wili gets an idea in his head and before you know it the whole dynamic shifts, so being flexible helps too. Also, LGH isn't just fishing, there are lots of pieces and separate games to it, like gold hunt, society, snuffles, farming, etc. The best thing I can say is pace yourself because burnout is very real and we don't want people to stop and never come back.

In closing, thank you Kelly for taking the time to speak with me and allowing me to put you in the Spotlight this week.  I am sure I speak for all of the LGH fishers when I say thank you for providing us such a great place to fish and collect mats!

Well there you have it folks, words of wisdom and advice along with a few tips from a true champ!  

While I can't say I recall ever seeing Kelly wearing a heart, you can find hers in front of the Snuffle area oft the blue buoy at P**nfish so be sure to show her some love and appreciation.  Rumor also has it she may even have a board in the Society area now!!  

Until next time, keep your rods stiff and your casting swift!

Kistrel's Spotlight: Maja Hallison

  On any given day, we gather around the LGH fishing spots that provides us hours of casting pleasure while filling our purses with lindens!  Some are more of the casual fishers, some are hard-core competitors and some are, shall we say, the veterans of the game and it is here I decided to search for a candidate to highlight.   With approximately 363 individuals to date, achieving an impressive 1 MILLION in XP and worthy and deserving of the recognition, I decided to go to straight to the top landing upon the legend that is—Maja Hallison.  With a truly remarkable 62+ MILLION XP, and rising daily; and overall earnings in excess of 3 MILLION lindens, I am in the presence of LGH fishing royalty. Firstly, I would like to thank Maja for taking the time to have a chat with me and share some of her journey within LGH and maybe even a tip or two along the way! Q:  So Maja, would you care to share any of your Second Life journey including how and when you found Fish Hunt with us? A: This was on

Kistrel's Spotlight: Kasabian

    Hey there and welcome back! I am so glad you popped by again for a visit and I hope you will continue to do so, each and every week! I always have the kettle on, homemade cookies, alcohol if that is your preference and I can roll ya' a smoke if you like.  So really, there is no question as to why you shouldn't be here every week. My next spotlight is on someone who I am not sure I have ever seen fish to be honest although I am sure they own a rod--maybe?!?! Then again, I tend to be cammed at the ground the majority of the time just trying to stay on!  ;-p  Having said that, they are very active within the community and have some of the quirkiest and creative builds I have seen AND they are located on some of the most prime real estate in SL! In addition to the main blue Buoy, there are 3 red buoys you will find here. There is a group only yellow at The Jetty too. There are Krafties, games and loads of things to see, do, click on and just have good whimsical fun! With little
