I wish I hurt it on a big fish Kelvin,  it would had made the last 2 months of pain worth it. 

Got caught out in some ugly weather coming home in the dark , 20+knots of NE & following sea I ran over the top of a wave and there was nothing in front of it, just a big trough ,  boat nosed dived into the back of the next wave which force me around the side of the center console tearing a tendon in my shoulder. Never trust a 5knot forecast. 

 

 

Geez, that’s no good mate but on the plus side I guess it could have been a whole lot worse.

Southsiders - get yourself a black marker pen, colour most of your teeth with it and get out and start catching winning fish and taking photos. Rumour has it Chris has already chosen the 'unique item' to the advantage of the north side rednecks. A smile with one tooth showing .......... 😬😆

Surely they wouldn’t all go out and buy a one tooth denture? Could it be a banjo?🤫🤫

Sign me up!  Being from GC I presume I am a South Sider - does it matter how far south.  Can't wait to read the rules and species. Think I won a category last comp by extreme luck! Still landed the fish though so maybe not all luck...

Yep, you are a Southsider Kat - welcome to the winning(est) team ... 😎

      SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 21/22! 11/12/2021 - 16/01/2022
      All righty everyone, the people have spoken and the dates are as above. This is the 5th time this comp is being run and still seems pretty popular which is great! Lots of good banter so far, and will sure to be lots more over the coming 2 months. Leader board from over the years has Team South in a commanding position with 3 wins to 1. Maybe the under dog Team North can claw their way back this year! Apologies for the long post, but there is a bit of info to cover 
      2016 - Team South
      2017 - Team South
      2018 - Team North
      2020 - Team South
      There are more changes this year, including more species (new additions are Mangrove Jack and Sharks) and a new scoring system. Instead of having one winner per category, there will now be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each fish species. Each place will have a corresponding score. 1st (3 points) 2nd (2 points) 3rd (1 point). For either team North or South to win, they will need to have scored the most points overall. Make sense? Also, given this will be held over summer, I've now included a shark category. In the off chance that two identical length fish are caught, then all anglers who catch that exact same sized fish species will be awarded the same point. Eg: two people catch a bream that is 35cm which is the joint biggest fish. Both angles will score 1st/ 3 points (of course, this only applies when a Team North and team South anglers catch the same sized fish). So the same team cannot share and double up on points for any given place. Ideally, the measurement should be down to the mm, but that is not always the case as not everyone has a brag mat that goes down to the mm.  ill be running an up to date scoreboard on the leader board topic.
      SPECIES LIST
      Yellowfin Bream, Australian Bass, Mangrove Jack, Whiting, Flathead, Snapper, Mulloway or Teraglin (Jew), Threadfin Salmon, Golden Perch (yellow belly), Tailor, Tuna, Mackerel, Cod (any type freshwater or salt), Trevally (any type) and Shark (i will allow shovel nose in this category)
      In years gone by, this has always been a free event which is still the case, the bragging rights are enough of a prize for some! However, I’ve decided to give the winners an opportunity to have a trophy to show off their win…let me explain this a bit further. There is a trophy available to each species category winner and will say something like “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 21/22 Summer Slam – BREAM 1st Place – Joe Bloggs”. Up to the winner if they want their name or not on the trophy. For the winning team, there is also the opportunity to have a “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 21/22 Summer Slam CHAMPIONS – TEAM NORTH” which will be available to anyone on the winning team who wants one regardless if you catch any fish or not as this is a team based event. The trophy will probably look like this below (tbc and finalised at the end of the comp) 14cm tall, and the cost of it will need to be paid for by the winning angler who wants one. Completely up to each individual, if bragging rights are enough then that’s cool too.  I figured the chance at winning a trophy might bring out the competitive streak in people! Cost will be around $10-$20 for the trophy plus postage (or pickup if that’s easier). I’ll be the contact to organise this at the end of the comp.
      To keep it fair, the night before the opening day of fishing, a unique symbol/object will be released that must be pictured with the catch. Submissions can be made online in the topic that I will create to keep a up to date leader board for all to see (topic will be called “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 21/22 Summer Slam LEADER BOARD” and will be created closer to the event start). Each time a new longest species is caught, I will update the original post to let everyone know what Team is in front and who is winning each category. The unique symbol will be as easy as writing/drawing on a piece of paper (or a hand signal) or an object, 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. 
       
      Team North @christophagus@Jono4500@Tuna are fish@Angry51@benno573@Matt83
      Team South @ellicat @Neil Stratford@AUS-BNE-FISHO@tugger@kmcrosby78@Drop Bear@rayke1938@Old Scaley@Junky@Kat
      HOW TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY
      To submit a entry, you will need a photo of the fish on a brag mat or some form of measuring device that clearly displays the length of the fish along with the unique symbol/object. This entry must be uploaded to the topic “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 21/22 Summer Slam LEADER BOARD” before 8pm on the final day of the competition. Even if you catch a fish that isn’t as big as the top 3 fish already submitted, feel free to post it up anyway as it would be great to see how everyone is going regardless. Non legal fish will be accepted...meaning fish that are not of a legal length (fish that are under or over legal length as defined by the state you are fishing in) Just ensure that any non-legal fish are released safely.
      The more anglers involved the better! This competition isn’t designed to push us against each other, but to just get some friendly banter going among this awesome community that we have going here on AFO.
      The gauntlet has been thrown down! Who is keen? To nominate what team you are on, just comment on this post and I will add your name to the below list
      To keep it plain and simple, if you live North of the Brisbane river, you are Team North
      If you live South of the Brisbane river, you are Team South
      It’s not about where you were born, just about where you live now
      Also important to note, if we could please only use the leader board topic for competition submissions. For any banter or general chat, just use this topic or the general chat topic. Just helps me monitor the comp submissions easier
      Unique item : TBA

      Suburbs of Origin! 22nd of August – 20th of September 8pm
      After skipping a year last year, the mighty Suburbs of Origin is back! Only this time, its not just for those in SEQ. it is open to everyone! Though the dividing line is still the Brisbane River. This is the 4th year of this comp. I do not remember who won the first competition, but Team South won in 2017, and Team North won in 2018. So the competition this year is anyone’s for the taking! There are some changes this year (open to anyone in the country) as well as I’m sure you are all now aware, it is now a one round competition. So instead of the traditional 3 round series, it will be a “winner takes all” one round competition that will last for an entire month, so no excuses for not having the time to fish or bad weather. Also new this year, more species. The more the merrier, plus it gives everyone more chances to target different species and just makes for a more interesting competition. Also, I’ve split some categories up compared to previous years. So now we have 13 species to target. Species list below.
      In years gone by, this has always been a free event which is still the case, the bragging rights are enough of a prize for some! However, I’ve decided to give the winners an opportunity to have a trophy to show off their win…let me explain this a bit further. There is a trophy available to each species category winner and will say something like “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 2020 – BREAM CHAMPION – Joe Bloggs”. Up to the winner if they want their name or not on the trophy. For the winning team, there is also the opportunity to have a “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 2020 CHAMPIONS – TEAM NORTH” which will be available to anyone on the winning team who wants one regardless if you catch any fish or not as this is a team based event. The trophy will probably look like this below (tbc and finalised at the end of the comp) 14cm tall, and the cost of it will need to be paid for by the winning angler who wants one. Completely up to each individual, if bragging rights are enough then that’s cool too.  I figured the chance at winning a trophy might bring out the competitive streak in people! Cost will be around $10 for the trophy plus postage (or pickup if that’s easier). I’ll be the contact to organise this at the end of the comp.
      To keep it plain and simple, if you live North of the Brisbane river, you are Team North
      If you live South of the Brisbane river, you are Team South
      It’s not about where you were born, just about where you live now
      Unique item : the number 3! It can be written or three fingers.
      SPECIES LIST
      Yellowfin Bream, Australian Bass, Whiting, Flathead, Snapper, Mulloway or Teraglin (Jew), Threadfin Salmon, Golden Perch (yellow belly), Tailor, Tuna, Mackerel, Cod (any type freshwater or salt) and Trevally (any type) .
       For a team to win, they must win the majority of available species (more species than the other team). Why these species? Because regardless of how (boat, kayak or land) or where you fish, you will be able to target these species. To win a species category, an angler from either Team North or Team South must catch the longest of that species. It does not matter if one team catches more of any particular species, it comes down to the size of the fish. One 30cm bream will beat 5x 29cm bream from the other team. Quality, not quantity. Hope that makes sense.

      To keep it fair, the night before the opening day 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 be made online in the topic that I will create to keep a up to date leader board for all to see (topic will be called “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 2020 LEADER BOARD” and will be created closer to the event start). Each time a new longest species is caught, I will update the original post to let everyone know what Team is in front and who is winning each category. The unique symbol will be as easy as writing or drawing on a piece of paper (or a hand signal), 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 competition submissions must be loaded into the leader board topic by 8pm on the final day of the competition! The unique symbol will be posted in both this topic and the leader board topic.
      HOW TO SUBMIT AN ENTRY
      To submit a entry, you will need a photo of the fish on a brag mat or some form of measuring device that clearly displays the length of the fish along with the unique symbol and your team name. This entry must be uploaded to the topic “SUBURBS OF ORIGIN 2020 LEADER BOARD” before 8pm on the final day of the competition. Even if you catch a fish that isn’t as big as one already submitted, feel free to post it up anyway as it would be great to see how everyone is going regardless.
      The date has been set so that the competition starts when the snapper closure has been re-opened. 
      The more anglers involved the better! This competition isn’t designed to push us against each other, but to just get some friendly banter going among this awesome community that we have going here on AFO.
      The gauntlet has been thrown down! Who is keen? To nominate what team you are on, just comment on this post and I will add your name to the below list
       
      TEAM NORTH : @Leosonfire @GregOug @benno573@Breaming with bro @Cobiaaddict@christophagus
      TEAM SOUTH : @Allnighter @kmcrosby78 @Old Scaley @AUS-BNE-FISHO @ellicat @Cavvy @samsteele115 @rayke1938 @Drop Bear @tugger @shaun1800 @Another Wazza @NguyenD @Kat

      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.
