    Australian Fishing Tournaments

    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!!!

  17. 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 divided in regions labelled North and South. “Team North” will be registrants from north of the Brisbane River and “Team South” will be registrants from South of the Brisbane River*. 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.

Summary: This is a competition designed to create some great banter and friendly rivalry. Prizes are not sheep stations so we would hope competitors would keep it honest, friendly and all round enjoyable. Good luck to any and all competing.

    Historical BRC dates

    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

    2014 Winter Camp: Wrap Up

    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

    2014 Lake Maroon Bluefin Comp

    Copy of email from Steve Wilkes Registrations are now open for this year’s event. All details and registrations are through the Sports Tuition website. Early registrations are appreciated and you’ll see there are some great prizes on offer for early registration as well as any merchandise purchase. This year the merchandise includes; fishing shirt, spray jacket, cap and truth mat. Best to pre-order these items as there will be very limited-no stock on sale during the competition weekend. You’ll see that we have attracted more sponsors which has resulted in more prizes of offer this year. There will be a lot more random give-a-ways too. Bluefin have once again been fantastic as our major sponsor. The senior random draw is the 415 Drifter Tournament on a Dunbier trailer. It’s powered by a 40hp Mercury. The Junior random draw boat is the 3.0 Catfish. There were some excited winners last year. Hopefully it’s you this year! The event is scheduled for 14-16 November. The 14th is the G20 Public Holiday in Brisbane, so it should work out well to get many out there early on Friday. As well as Leeann Payne and Tim Morgan as our guest key note speakers on the Friday night, we’ll also have live music afterwards with Marty Spinks and the B Doubles. David Cotelli from CJ’s Pasta will once again lead our catering team. We have slightly adjusted the menu to offer a few more child-friendly options. Once again we are hoping to make it a relaxed, family-friendly competition. Hopefully you can make it along again and please invite others with you. Finally, if you operate a business where we could display the competition brochure, or if you’re involved in a fishing or social club or simply have a few mates you’d like to invite along, please return email with your postal mailing address and let me know how many brochures you’d like sent. Alternatively, I’ve attached the electronic copy of the brochure, so if you could forward it to as many people as possible, it would be greatly appreciated.

  23. Ladies and gentleman, it is that time again. Winter Camp time! The dates for Winter Camp 2014 have been confirmed for the Friday 18th July - Sunday 20th July. Location: Camp Lake Fire @ Maroon Dam. 664 Burnett Creek Road Lake Maroon. Feel free to check out the website for this camp site: www.camplakefire.com.au Just want to articulate that is an AWESOME opportunity for new members on the site to ingrain themselves in the culture and establish some good friends and connections with other members. Don't think of this as an event for Bass fishermen only, but a social opportunity to camp, hang out, fish and meet other members. Friday 18th July 7:30pm: Arrive at Camp Site. 7:45pm-till late: Set up camp, cabins, dinner and social. Saturday July 19th: 6:00am: Breakfast. 6:45am-7:00am: Briefing. 7:30am-12:00: Fishing. 12:00-1:00: Lunch. 1:00-4:00: Fishing. 4:30-late: Tackle talks, dinner and socializing. 8:00pm: Presentation To Winners. Sunday 20th July: 6:30am: Breakfast. 7:00-12:00: Social Fishing if desired. What to bring: Fishing Gear. Towel. Wet Weather Gear. Tent if required. Boat if desired. Alcoholic beverages. Digital Camera if possible. Brag Mat. Common Sense. Competition This event is after all a social fun competition with the following categories: Prize are all TBA 1st Largest Bass: 2nd Largest Bass: 3rd Largest Bass: Largest Yellowbelly: Largest Spangled Perch: Largest Catfish: Lucky Door Prizes: Accommodation: There are Cabins available as well as fantastic camping grounds at this camp site. Cabin reservations will be first in first served, however some preference will be given to the ladies. Hope you don’t mind gentlemen. The camping sites are non powered but flat and comfortable. If you don’t mind camping please consider this option to benefit those that simply don’t have the equipment. Boating: Some boats and canoes are available for hire from Sports Tuition. Power boats are allowed on Maroon Dam which should open up the range of boats AFO members can bring. People with their own boats are encouraged to bring them so that more non boaters may attend. Rates: Please consider this section very very carefully. When you book via email I will need ALL required information as I will be juggling very different needs and wants from each person. When you book please itemise each addition (if any) above the base rate with associated price so I receive a list of what you have booked and what you have paid. Base Rate: $80.00 (Includes catering, entry into the competition). Camping Both Nights: $30.00 Per person. Cabins Both Nights: $50.00 Full Days Boat Hire (4 People): $95.00* Full Days Canoe Hire (2 People): $85.00* Full Days Kayak Hire: $35.00 (1 Person) Fishing Rod: $5.00 Per person per day. Tent: Six-man family or two-man $10.00 per night. Live shrimp can purchased on site. *Payments for boats will be taken in one installment. So it’s up to a nominated representative of a “crew” to book and pay for the boat/canoe, and he can collect the contributions from his deckies. There are limited boats so the first 5 “Captains (person paying the full price) to book will the first served. In this way you will see that if someone brings their own boat and camps… They will only be paying $110 where in the past it would have been $150-$180… I know this information is a bit dated now, but just want to reinforce where the value is. In contrast those paying more (Cabin + ¼ Boat Hire + Rod for example for $158.75) are seeing where their extra dollars are going.

    Genesis Fishing Club Challenge

    Interesting comp I thought I would share due to its very different nature. From the Lowrance Page: "What is the Fishing Club Challenge? • We want to help you discover our fantastic new service called Insight Genesis, which allows you to create charts for your Lowrance or Simrad multi-function displays based on sonar logs you upload. Create detail rich charts that show key fish-holding areas, reater contour detail and information about plant and ground composition for greater success on the water. • What’s in it for us? We want to provide our customers with the absolute greatest experience on the water we possibly can. Part of this is being able to offer the highest level of chart data available to our customers so they can make the most out of their time on the water. Getting that information is the gateway to a whole new world of features and enhancements to offer you our customers. • We’re so keen to show you how this all works and how much you can benefit from it, that we’re giving away over $20,000 in Lowrance and Simrad products to the top contributors to the Fishing Club Challenge".
