  10. Who would be up for a friendly Winter tournament? No entry fees and no prizes except for the bragging rights that come with the win which can be worth more than any prize when you can rub it in the face of your opposite team until next year’s comp! Here’s what im thinking… SEQ Suburbs of Origin! To keep it plain and simple, if you live North of the Brisbane river, you are a north sider (Team North) If you live South of the Brisbane river, you’re a south sider (Team South) It’s not about where you were born, just about where you live now To somewhat mimic the NRL State of origin, we could hold this over three weekends, with each weekend being considered one “game” in a three game series. Five categories each weekend (bream, flathead, bass, tailor and snapper) Why these five species? Because regardless of how (boat, kayak or land) or where you fish, you will be able to target these species. To win the weekend in any one species, an angler from either Team North or Team South must catch the longest of that species for the weekend. To win the weekend, one team (North or South) must take out three of the five species for the weekend. Once the next weekend (or game) rolls around, the slate is cleaned. For example, if the Team South have the longest bream, flatty and longest bass for one weekend, but Team North have the longest snapper and tailor…then Team South win for that weekend. Hope that makes sense To keep it fair, the night before the weekend of fishing, a unique symbol will be released that must be pictured with the catch along with your team name (North or South) submissions can just be made online in the topic that I will create for each weekend of fishing. Each time a new longest species is caught, I will update the original post to let everyone know what Team is in front. The unique symbol will be as easy as writing or drawing on a piece of paper, which can be easily placed next to the fish. Fish where you want, just because you’re a Team North member doesn’t mean that you have to fish North of the Brisbane river and vice versa. All comp submissions must be loaded into the rounds topic (a new topic will be created for each round) by 7pm on the final day of the round! And of course, to win the series and have your team crowned the SEQ Suburbs of Origin champions, you must win 2 of the three weekends. Then maybe afterwards we can all get together and have a big feed or something along those lines. The more anglers involved the better! This comp isn’t designed to push us against each other, but to just get some friendly banter going amongst this awesome community that we have going here on AFO. Who is keen? We can decide on what weekend suit most people best etc if there is enough interest in this. The beauty of having this spread out over three different weekends, is that if you are unable to fish one weekend, then you have two more weekends that you can fish on, so no complaining about not being able to enter! If anyone is keen, shoot me a message or reply in this topic as to what team you are fishing for and I will update the below list.

  11. Does anyone enter this monthly online comp. http://getfishing.com.au/ My daughter got a 6 month free membership and she picked up the largest whiting in the kids section in Februaury. She picked up a Daiwa Revros DX2000 reel and was stoked! I have read reports on this site lately and so many fish caught would take out monthly prizes. For example, last month no tuna were entered and the prize was worth $300. As I write this looking at the tuna for this month the pic looks familiar. Well done RUSSIAN ..... the leading tuna for this month!!!

  20. Jack Marathon… Concept: For a period of approx. 2 months we will be running an ongoing, virtual Mangrove Jack fishing competition.

The Competition will be run through one thread (this one) on the Australian Fishing Online website with a leader board being kept the whole time. Like many of our tangible events, the competition will be length based requiring a unique item and fish to be photographed on a clearly marked measuring device. The unique item will be emailed prior to the event kick off. *If you are unsure of your region or have multiple is acceptable to nominate as it pleases you. Just be aware the one you nominate in registration is the one you will be stuck with for the duration of the event. Time Frame: The goal is to have all competitors registered by the 10th of November. Although this event is totally free to enter, we will not be taking registrations after the 10th of November. This is to avoid competitor’s selectively choosing regions if one seems easier to place in. The event will run all the way through until the 10th of January 2015 and winners will be officially announced soon after that. Categories and Prizes: Overall Regional Win: Bragging Rights 1st Place Team North: $150.00 Fish Head Lure Pack & a Nordic Stage Favorite 732 8-16lb 2nd Place Team North: $100.00 Fish Head Lure Pack 3rd Place Team North: $75.00 Fish Head Lure Pack 1st Place Team South: $150.00 Fish Head Lure Pack & a Nordic Stage Favorite 732 8-16lb 2nd Place Team South: $100.00 Fish Head Lure Pack 3rd Place Team South: $75.00 Fish Head Lure Pack Best Report Relating To An Entry: Freak Fishing Assassin Kayak (RRP $595.00) Best Photograph Relating To An Entry: Said Photo Enlarged/Framed Thank you to our great sponsors: To Register: Registration is simple but 100% required before the 10th of November.

  21. I've been doing a little cleanup of my hdd over the past month or so and found all photos with one of my old cameras was out by just shy of a year. I offset their times accordingly, except for a couple of months where I accidentally offset them by 3 days more - chalk that up to doing it late at night across two different nights . Anyway, I thought I'd adjusted all the wrongly-adjusted photos but it appears I may have missed this one particular folder. In order to check and confirm my suspicion, I was hoping someone had the exact date of the 2010 BRC? At the same time, if anyone has a comprehensive list of all the BRC dates, that'd be perfect

  23. What an awesome year! From "not being sure if we would host one this year", to my personal favorite event yet! There was a really healthy mix of new faces and old which greatly added to the dynamic of the event. These sort of socially aimed get togethers always help secure members as long term allowing bring user names face to face with each other in a fun environment. Winter Camp has always led the way in this regard for whatever reason and this year was no exception. My personal Winter Camp was spent enjoying the company, soaking some shrimp and having some good laughs. Those that chose to soak shrimp with me enjoyed great results and our boat alone tallied over 40 fish. For the tenacious lure users fish were still evident and those dedicated few all enjoyed good captures as well. On the competitive front it was great to see two new faces walk away with 1st and 2nd, and an absolute stalwart veteran stick it out for 3rd. With places going to anglers able to measure in the largest overall length of combined species, capturing multiple species became a must, and with everyone landing relatively similar size bass, the length of the Tandun kicker became crucial... The place holder were: 1st: Matt Ascough 2nd: Ian Goebel 3rd: Ray Kennedy Lucky Door Prize: Andrew MacCormack Winter Camp is never about winning sheep stations but token prizes are always appreciated by winner and our sponsors must be thanked. Fish Head Searing Tackle (Damiki, Pontoon 21, Fish Arrow) Reel Tackle All these sponsors donated some awesome prizes and we really appreciate your time, and unanimous attendance at the event. A final massive thaks must go to Mick who worked this event. With Steve injured Mick ran the thick of things, cooking, preparing boats and so on. No task is to small for Mick and none is met with anything but a smile and it a pleasure to run this camp with him. Overall it was a top event and heres to next year! Angus
  24. Each month the staff at Davo's Tackle World Noosa host an exciting fishing competition aimed appealing to the whole community. Proceeds go to charity and although the prizes are not sheep stations, this event draws some of Noosa's finest anglers. Categories vary in these events from overall length of combined species to individual species and versatility of fishing (due to both species and time of year) usually produces the winners. Craig with his winning trevally... Last weekends event was divided into four species fairly common throughout the Noosa system during winter, these being Trevally, Tailor, Bream and Flathead. Tailor were conspicuously absent from the weigh in this year but the winners for the other 3 categories had one something in common... They all caught their fish on Nordic Stage rods! Cooper with his 1st place winning Flathead... Using a variety of Nordic Stage rods including Areals, Areal Pros and Dynamics, these three gents fished their way to a conclusive victory in a tough fought event. Craig was stoked with his epic Diamond Trevally landed on his Nordic Stage Areal. Diamonds are not usually a "long" fish being quite deep in the body but his massive specimen overruled many other trevs including several other hefty diamonds and a few golden and giant trevally. Cooper with a quality Diamond trevally for his efforts... These social events are a great way to learn a lot about the Noosa River as the conversation around the Davos is very friendly and helpful. If you want to find out more about these events check out the Davos website by clicking HERE. Well done to all those that fished and especially our three green clad winners! While it was the bream category Tim took out, he also landed some quality trevally... Regards The Team Obsession Fishing
  25. Just throwing this out as it is always an awesome weekend... From there page: "The Davo's Social Fishing comp starts up again from 4pm on August the 15th, and with plenty of interest already, it's sure to be a cracker! Pictured here are the winners of the previous Davo's Social Comp, who fished hard and as a result caught some quality fish!
