      12. So the idea was bandied around the fire at Winter Camp to chuck out a date and idea for a Summer Camp next year. Initial concept was to use the camp site next to the boat ramp at Urangun Hervey Bay. Proposed dates... 5th, 6th, 7th of February. Idea would be to get as many guys together, tow a bunch of boats up. Fish. BBQ. Beer. Pretty straight forward while at the same time somewhat fool proof Hervey Bay is a big place so no limit on potential. The evening share should be really insightful as well. Looks like I will tow Henry's boat up so that is two to start. Proposed location is the Camp site/ Caravan park shown on the below map. Although this is ages away would be good to get some idea of numbers early and maybe we can book out a section of the park... Hope to see you there Angus

      15. Please note that in the Mary Valley Family Fishing Classic website link for Boating & Fishing guide is dated 2012/2013 There have been changes in November 2014 and February 2015. For the latest update (Aug 2015) go to Mary Valley Family Fishing Classic /> 13th Oct 2015 5:00 AM THE Lions clubs of Gympie and Mary Valley have joined forces again to stage the Family Fishing Classic at Borumba Dam next month. The clubs are pleased to again have the support of the Lake Borumba Fish Restocking Association for this year's event, to be held on November 7 and 8. The objective of the project is to increase overall community awareness that the Mary Valley region of the south-east is a place of wonderful natural beauty with a resilient community spirit that is definitely worth a visit. Mary Valley Family Fishing Classic committee chairman Glenn Williams said the event was expected to be bigger than last year with about 130 competitors from as far as Brisbane, Toowoomba, the Darling Down, Gladstone and the Sunshine Coast expected to register for the classic. There will be assorted prizes for juniors for each species and the redclaw competition. Meanwhile, adults will participate in a mystery length competition on a species as determined by the committee and announced at the competition. For the adults, the catch-and-release event will be based on the size, and overall winners will be awarded about noon on Sunday. Mr Williams said the fishing classic provided a family atmosphere and an opportunity to spend time outdoors while having fun and giving participants a chance to return home with a prize. Those participating will be having fun while also supporting a good cause as all funds will go towards both Lions clubs. There will be live entertainment from 6pm to 9.30pm on Saturday with popular Gympie singer Graeme Jensen performing at the Lions Camp in the Borumba Dam campgrounds. Bring a chair and settle in for a good evening with karaoke for those looking to belt out a tune or two Also available will be a delicious two-course meal on sale this year for $10. All competitors 18 and over will require a stocked impoundment fishing permit in order to participate. A permit can be obtained from the camp ground managers based at Borumba Dam in addition most fishing tackle outlets.

      18. Well by popular demand dates have been set and concept sorted. Winter Camp this year will be held on the 8 to the 9th of August. Feel free to book days either side. Camp Lake Fire Website: Bookings will a bit different this year and each participant will be responsible for making their own bookings etc. I apologize for this in advance but I am extremely time poor this year juggling a variety of hats and this in the best if not only way I could make it happen. Steve and team at Camp Lake Fire are reserving the entire paddock to the right on the entrance driveway exclusively for us. This will give us the chance to spread out camping areas while retaining some sort of central social area, and have a bank to ourselves for boats. He will also be moving a couple of port a loos down the hill for us. The concept will be similar to usual. Fish all day Saturday with some token prizes for length based captures. I will work on some prizes before the date. Prizes: 1st: $100 Searing Tackle Pack 2nd: $100 Lure Pack 3rd: $50 Lure Pack. A reminder this will be self catered and on that note would everyone be keen on a Saturday Night Feast! Basic idea would be everyone contributes something to a raucously indulgent feast (picture feasting in the halls of Valhalla) to be basically shared. Essentially bring your specialty... If can bake it, brew it, BBQ it, smoke it etc... Bring it along for the worlds best share table. Collaborative efforts welcome Sunday do what you want and have a great weekend Let me know your thoughts. I will keep a list of attendees in this post but this will be fairly rough as I will not be taking bookings personally. Maybe just let me know when you have actually booked so we know the list is fairly accurate. Also when you book make sure you let them know you are with the AFO crew Cheers guys.

      20. Hi Guys, Just to inform you all that for the third year now we will be organising a flathead social to be held on the gold coast broadwater. Sunday september 21st is the date. This is a social event to get people together who generally communicate via a computer or phone. We fish for flathead only and the longest flattie wins(photo only). This time of year there are plenty of quality flatties around and can be caught from offshore boats to yaks. $10 entry to fish and $5 for a raffle ticket, all the money gets divided on a percentage to the top 3 or 4 anglers.You will be issued with a number to display on your photo. Raffle tickets are $5 each and you can buy as many as you want, I beg and plead with fishing companies to donate just a small prize to the raffle table and the generousity is amazing, we have prizes from Spotters, Damiki, Reeltackle,Dougie Burts, Threadybuster. Everyone comes away with at least a prize. If you know someone that would donate to the raffle table, please pass this on. We will meet at the boat ramp out towards the spit, on Seaworld drive at 6am, we meet back at the ramp at 12.30pm, there we have a free sausage sizzle and a cold drink, whilst we do the prizes and raffle. This is a fun event, so there are no serious rules apart from treat the fish properly and due to the amount of money at stake make sure your photo of the fish on a brag mat is clear. Any questions just ask via post or pm, or I have a facebook page for the event. Many thanks and hopefully see you guys there. Brian & Kelvin.

Basically Insight Genesis is a tool for lowrance and simrad sounders that you can use to create custom maps. You can set your sounder to record and save this data to a card, this then gets uploaded online and the maps are created. To win, whoever logs the most data and covers the most acres will win. Each month there is a prize (Lowrance HDS 7 Touch) for both the leading angler and the leading club. AFO has been signed on and we are ready to go. So those of you with compatible sounders ( should get on board and give it a crack. Easy way to win a decent prize. There is also an overall prize as the end of the year for leading club($10k worth of product) and leading angler (HDS 12). Prizes scored by the club will be used as prizes in any future AFO events.

Also don't be disheartened by seeing the scores, each person and club can only win once! With that in mind we have a real collective crack here!
