  1. 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 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
  2. 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.
  3. With Team North taking out the first round, and the Southsiders taking round two, we go to the decider! If you haven't fished for this comp before...now is the time to help your suburb brothers out! To shake things up a bit, I've changed one of the target species. Given that no one has caught a yellow belly in rounds 1 & 2, I've decided to replace it with squid. I've seen plenty of squid already caught all around the bay both land based and in the boat. My suggestion would be to measure the tube length...that sound fair to everyone? The dates for the decider are as follow. 6/7 til the 15/7. Catches must be submitted by 9pm on Sunday the 15th of July. Remember folks, this is a just for fun and bragging rights comp, no money, no physical prizes, just the glory of winning! To summarize the comp... 9 target species; Bream, Bass, Whiting, Flathead, Snapper, Jew/Threadfin, Squid, Tailor and Pelagic (Tuna, Mackerel). For a team to win the round, they must hold at least the biggest 5 out of the 9 species. To submit an entry, simply post a crystal clear photo of the fish you caught on a brag mat with the unique item with the size of the fish clearly visible!All submissions must be posted in this topic by 9pm on Sunday night. Happy Fishing and tight lines. UNIQUE ITEM : Number 3 (either written or three fingers in the photo) To brush up on the rules, please see the below topic link BREAM - @Doyley 25cm TEAM NORTH BASS - @rayke1938 45cm TEAM SOUTH FLATHEAD - @Poddymullet 48cm TEAM NORTH WHITING - @Doyley 31cm TEAM NORTH SNAPPER - @Cobiaaddict 85cm TEAM NORTH SQUID - TAILOR - JEW/THREADFIN SALMON - PELAGIC (Tuna, Mackerel) -
  4. Round two!!! Apologies for the delay, been sick the past few days. Since it’s started late I’ll run this one a bit longer so everyone still have two full weekends to fish. Remember folks, this is a just for fun and bragging rights comp, no money, no physical prizes, just the glory of winning! The teams as it stands now are as follows...let me know if you are not on the list but want to fish To summarize the comp... 9 target species; Bream, Bass, Whiting, Flathead, Snapper, Jew/Threadfin, Golden Perch (yellowbelly), Tailor and Pelagic (Tuna, Mackerel). For a team to win the round, they must hold at least the biggest 5 out of the 9 species. To submit an entry, simply post a crystal clear photo of the fish you caught on a brag mat with the unique item (to be advised on Monday night) with the size of the fish clearly visible! Please note, legal fish only will be accepted! All submissions must be posted in this topic by 7pm on Sunday night Happy Fishing and tight lines. Unique item will be released on Thursday night. SO watch this space!

  5. SEQ Suburbs of Origin! The great battle is back again in 2018 for its 3rd year running now i believe! Last year poor old Team North was well and trult flogged last year...maybe this is our year in 2018! Remember folks, no entry fees, no prizes...just the glory of the win! 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 hold this over three weekends, with each week being considered one “game” in a three game series. 9 target species; Bream, Bass, Whiting, Flathead, Snapper, Jew/Threadfin, Golden Perch (yellowbelly), Tailor and Pelagic (Tuna, Mackerel). For a team to win the round, they must hold at least the biggest 5 out of the 9 species. 9 categories each weekend, 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 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 the majority of species for the period. 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 (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 comp submissions must be loaded into the rounds topic (a new topic will be created for each round) by 8pm 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. OFFICIAL DATES Round One : 8th - 17th of June Round Two : TBC Round Three : TBC Team North Team South @christophagus @ellicat @Doyley @Old Scaley @Fishaman @Drop Bear
