Full terms and conditions are at the link in our bio.We've trawled through some more of your Million Dollar Myths and we're keen for a bit of fishbusting tonight! 💥 Here's what you've been hearing:

𝗠𝗬𝗧𝗛: The winning Million Dollar Fish tag numbers change every day.

𝗙𝗔𝗖𝗧: Nope! The tag numbers of the seven Million Dollar Fish already released can be found on our website. They have remained the same throughout the competition. The tag number for this season’s Million Dollar Fish will be revealed at the end of Season 7 next year.


𝗠𝗬𝗧𝗛: You need expensive gear to catch a barra.

𝗙𝗔𝗖𝗧: False! We’ve had a lucky fisho land a prize-tagged barra with a humble handline, so anything really is possible. Just remember, it is against the competition rules to catch a tagged fish with a net. Our fishy experts can tell if this is how a fish was caught, so don’t risk it.


𝗠𝗬𝗧𝗛: Only Territorians ever catch the tagged fish.

𝗙𝗔𝗖𝗧: It’s true heaps of Territorians have snagged a tagged barra - what do you expect from the nation’s best fishos? But we’ve had people from all over Australia walk away with prize money from landing a tagged fish, and score themselves some pretty awesome prizes from the prize pool. Register now and the next winner could be you. 

Have we missed any myths? 🤔 Let us know!It's finally the weekend fishos 🙌 And we're heading straight to the water for a flick.

@wildvisits have been loving the hunt in the harbour lately and it looks to be been paying off! 

Keep tagging us in your pics to be featured legends and use the hashtag #milliondollarfish 🐟Our mates at @helifish reckon our warm weather has the barra on the chew, and they've got the pics to prove it!

Helifsh definitely know where to find a barra in the Top End, and they're generous too... if you book a full day or half day tour with them and reel in a Season 7 fish worth $10k, they'll DOUBLE your money. That's an extra $10,000 in cash! 🤑🤑🤑

Best head to their website to book your trip, we wouldn't want you to miss out.Reel in a red tag, give to a charity in need. Another GREAT reason to get out for a flick 🙌 

This year, for every $10k fish caught, an extra $1k is donated to an official Million Dollar Fish charity, as nominated by the winning fisho. An official Charity Partner will also receive $10k once the Million Dollar Fish is caught!

One of our official Charity Partners is, an organisation that combines formal education with practical, on-the-job training to create career pathways for Indigenous youth. 

Check out the video above to learn more about Shoreline and their recent graduate Anthony Lorenzo, Tiwi Islands' go-to guide for those hunting down the illusive barra!
