Yet another accomplice has been reeled in, thanks to the help of Territory fisho Bobby Nunggumajabarr!

Caught at Roper Bar, this 69cm fugitive has earned Bobby a $10,000 cash reward 💰💰💰

The captive accomplices of Australia's Most Wanted Fish have revealed that the gang's head honchos, each carrying a reward of $1 million, may be swimming around in disguise.

After hours of interrogation with the slippery fish, authorities have created mock ups of what these disguised barra may look like.

"Those fish are terrified we'll find them, and it seems they're willing to do anything to avoid capture." said Detective Barry Mundine, "Stay sharp fishos, and leave no fish un-caught."

Australia's Most Wanted Fish are still out there. Make sure you're registered at the link in our bio before 31 March and join in the hunt!THE RUN-OFF: What's the deal?

For the fishos out there who might not be familiar, the run-off between March and April here in the Top End is said to be the best for barra fishing.

There's a couple of reasons....

1. The barra are on the move. After a good wet season, barra that are still up on the plains or in the channels need to make their way down to main river creeks before the water dries up.

2. The barra gotta eat! Knowing that all other aquatic life will also be making their way down, barra hang around creek mouths to scoop up an easy meal. Which makes them the perfect target for anglers.

Keen to see the run-off for yourself? Our local fishing operators, like @helifish pictured here, know the best spots to go! 

See you out there 🎣NEWS UPDATE 🚨

It's been another busy weekend on the water, with fishos from all corners of the nation volunteering their time to help authorities track down Australia's Most Wanted Fish.

Today, Detective Barry Mundine urged fishos not to give up. “I know you're tired, fishos." he said, "But that $1 million cash reward is still up for grabs. We must get that bad barramundi in the boat."
