Fish the NT.

It’s no secret the Northern Territory is home to some of the best fishing in Australia. For this season of Million Dollar Fish, we released more than 100 prize-tagged barra into five incredible fishing regions, Darwin, Kakadu, Arnhem Land, Katherine and the Tiwi Islands.

A total of 9 red-tagged fish were recaptured in Season 9, including the elusive red tag worth $1,000,000.

All of Season 1 – 9 red-tagged fish have ceased to be active after the extended season ended on 30 April.

You must re-register for each new season. To find out about Million Dollar Fish Season 10 sign up to our mailing list.

That fisho is 19 year old KEEGAN PAYNE! Keegan was battling it out, trying to catch those red-tagged barras in the Katherine River.

What Keegan wasn’t expecting was that he’d be reeling in a life-changing million-dollar prize. Originally released in the Katherine River, this 67cm Barra stuck around home territory long enough to be caught.

Keegan has been over the moon with this new opportunity to change his life! He has also chosen Cancer Council NT to be the receivers of a $10,000 donation through our charity partner program.
