Well everyone....its back

SUBURBS OF ORIGIN is back in 2020!

Firstly id like to apologise for not running it last year, was a busy one for me!

Ive got a few new ideas for this year, but firstly, id like input from the members. Should Suburbs of Origin have 3 rounds like previous years, or have it as one round running over a few weeks. Personally id rather have it as one longer round. The comp will be mostly the same as years gone by for species, just thinking a change of comp length. Let me know what you think! ill let this poll run for about a week before releasing the comp in further detail.

Could u explain this Como for the new members??

nah stuff the new members...haha ofcourse mate! Last comp link is below. But basically, its a free online fishing competition open to everyone that originally started to mimic the state of origin. Two teams (North and South) with the Brisbane river being the dividing border. Multiple species allowing anglers of all abilites (land, kayak or boat) to fish in the comp. The team with the majority winning categories wins the comp. No prizes, just bragging rights.

Hi christophagus

I think I'd like it as three, but to be honest, I don't really mind! 

I just think it would be better with three little comps, and if it ends up, a decider.

I will just be happy to participate!

Maybe a compromise might be to run 3 fixtures that last one week, starting say on Saturday and ending on a Friday. Purely selfish reasons for me - since I finished work I have a strong preference for not fishing weekends. Just a thought. Thanks for kicking it off again @christophagus.

Usually I would be the south team cause I’m a nsw guy but I’m in north Queensland for a bit now so I guess I’m team north . Also is it team with biggest fish or team with most fish

Hi Breaming with bro

I'm sure christophagus will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe it is the largest fish. 

For example, if Team Southside got a 40cm bream, but team Northside only ends up with a couple 15cm bream, Southside would win the for the bream. 

There are lots of different species. Whichever team has the most larger species wins. (Obviously the Southsiders will win

Nice ok let’s hope I get some good action while I’m up at Queensland . Went fishing today for a hour around 8 o’clock in the morning fishing with 2.5 inch zman slim swim wasn’t paying enough attention and got a big bite but didn’t hook up .was fishing a river with a stream that has species like barramundi saratoga and Grunter. I pretty sure it was a barra but not sure . Very sad now as that was my only hit on a lure so far this trip the rest of the trip so far I was just using bait for carp/yellowbelly  with no hook ups and barely any bites maybe 1 little bite

Also does anyone know when it’s going to start and end? Or have we not got a official start to end date yet 

no firm date yet, depends on the poll result. What i can say, is that it will not start until the snapper clousre ends. If the poll indicates on longer round, i will probably run it for 4 weeks. gives the weekend warriors plenty of chance to fish!

might even try to organise a get together after the comp

well here we go... time to make plenty of enemies... @ellicat @Old Scaley @kmcrosby78

From July 2019, my colours have changed.  After being a lifetime member of the southern burbs, I now reside on the north side of the river.  As such, to follow the rules, I will be representing team northside this time.  i know several of you will be disgusted and will look to disown me etc... but whatevs. it is what it is. 

things i miss since moving

- quick and easy access to gold coast

- access to arterial roads (when not peak hour)

- my very cost effective local fruit shop

 

Things i don't miss

- air traffic

- hearing the trucks on the gateway all night long

- paying gateway tolls to get anywhere northside

- hearing "3 car accident on the M1 at greenslopes" on the traffic report and losing the will to live

 

and following on from the above, @ellicat @Old Scaley - any decky spots available during the comp??  

You know there is always a spot on my tub for you, @benno573. Of course you know what an unfortunate history I have of making accidental bait knife contact with my deckie’s line when I see a trophy fish being played. That would never happen in a comp though - especially if you were representing the enemy.

Not sure where you are on the Northside but for very cheap fruit, Veges and meat try T-bones, Robinson Road, Aspley.

As for a decky spot, I may have one from time to time.

Hi benno573

@benno573 I too would be willing to take you fishing during the comp in spite of your 'EXPLETIVE' move to the wrong side of town. Only slight problem is that on that particular day (which we haven't set yet ....) I am only able to take you out to Mud Island, but unable to take you back to the ramp (it's complicated ....), but the good news is that this time of the year the mozzies and sandflies aren't too bad at Mud Island ......... and you may even get phone reception to either call for help or log on and enter any fish you catch whilst stranded .........
