Fish the NT.

It’s no secret that the Northern Territory is home to some of the best fishing in Australia, this season we’ve released 113 Tagged Fish into five incredible fishing destinations – Arnhem Land, Darwin, Kakadu, Katherine and Tiwi Islands.

64 prized fish have been snagged since the comp began with the elusive Million Dollar Fish still to be reeled in.

Here in the NT, any fisho can win the mill – so come on, wet a line and try your luck.

They know the boat like the back of their hand, wear the motorguide wireless remote like a badge of honour, and are up to speed with all the fishing/boating rules and regs.

They have all the high-tech gear, know just about every knot there is, and post shamelessly on social media about the lure, rod, reel and sounder they used in captures.

They’re always running late despite you telling them a thousand times over, ‘The tide waits for no one!’

This fisho is most likely to forget the SPF, they’ll bring a packet of chips when they’re in charge of catering... yet somehow manage to bag out before anyone else!

He was out for dinner with his family at Stokes Hill Wharf when he stopped to wet a line before heading home. Lucky for him, this $10k fish was waiting!

This is actually the second time Anthony has reeled in a Million Dollar Fish - he caught another one out at Adelaide River back in Season 4.

1. Get into the soft vibes. The good vibrations these versatile lures emit are often irresistible to barra, and can be worked at any depth and at different speeds.

2. The Classic 120 Barra Lure is a fantastic addition to any collection. Used for casting and trolling in all situations, Classic hard-body lures are a great all-rounder.

3. Bombers are so renowned for catching barra they’ve been referred to as 'legendary'. A hard-body lure, they are a popular choice for anglers on a metery mission.

4. For a reel surprise, throw in a Daiwa Tatula or Shimano Curado, two top-quality bait-casting reels that are made to last and excellent for saltwater fishing.
5. Every fisho needs a decent pair of pliers to get hooks out from a catch and the Boga Grip, a landing, handling and weighing tool, is designed for catch and release.

Happy gift giving! 🎅
