We recently caught up with Arthur Chapman, who won the Million Dollar Fish Season 6 NT Now Helifishing Adventure!

When Arthur Chapman found out he’d won the ultimate fishing trip to the Territory, the first person he told (apart from his wife) was his best mate.

Arthur said choosing his best mate of 46 years and fellow mad keen fisho Keith Gitsham was a no brainer.

“I had a few mates who were angling to join me, but I’ve known Keith since we were kids. Almost every fond memory I have as a kid growing up has me and Keith holding a fishing rod,” Arthur said.

“We’ve been fishing all over Queensland and just a little in the NT, and he was the perfect person to share this trip of a lifetime for flying, fishing and fun in the Territory.”

Fishos, we've got some rippa news to share with you! 🎣 

The results from Million Dollar Fish Season 6 are in, and we're stoked to reveal the comp generated an economic benefit (new money 💰) of $11 million to the Top End, and an economic stimulus of $41.3 million for the Territory. You little beauty! 👌 

Thanks to everyone registered for Season 6 (close to 29,000 of you!) and around 25,000 fishos who wet a line in the Top End to hook a tagged barra.

Million Dollar Fish Season 7 returns on 1 October 2021, with regos opening later this year. Stay tuned for more details!

George Voukolus is no stranger to catching red-tagged barra! The Darwin-based fisho recently caught his FOURTH red tag at Cahills Crossing – the most tagged fish anyone has ever caught in the history of Million Dollar Fish! 

While the Cahills Crossing barra didn’t have a prize attached to it, the Territorian has managed to reel in two other eligible $10,000 fish in 2016 and 2017. And the following year, the mad-keen fisho hooked another out-of-season fish in 2018. How’s that for luck?! Or should we say skill… 

We caught up with George (AKA the barra-nator) recently to find out his top tips for catching red tags in the Top End!

🎣 Watch out for crocs! Especially when land-based fishing at night time.
🎣 Keep changing your lure – if you’re not having any luck after five or ten minutes, try a different one.
🎣 If you hear barra boofing, whack a fizzer or popper on.
🎣 Make sure you register for Million Dollar Fish in case you catch a prize-tagged barra.

What’s better than winning $10,000 in Season 6?

Winning $20,000 is what!

There’s 3 weeks to go before Season 6 ends - make sure you register now. Click the link in our bio.
We could feel it in our waters that some lucky fisho would land a tagged barra this weekend and we weren't disappointed! 🍀

Just one week into March Madness, congratulations to David Ashfield doubling his loot with a massive $20k. 🤑

David and his mate were having a cheeky flick at his regular spot near Adelaide River, when he landed the 65cm beauty.

To celebrate the LAST month of Season 6, we've gone a little... MAD! 😜

Introducing 𝗠𝗔𝗥𝗖𝗛 𝗠𝗔𝗗𝗡𝗘𝗦𝗦 🤑 From MARCH 1, the first registered fisho to hook a Season 6 prize-tagged barra will 𝗗𝗢𝗨𝗕𝗟𝗘 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗟𝗢𝗢𝗧!* (*excluding the Million Dollar Fish).

To break it down, a red-tagged $10,000 barra would be worth $20,000. A purple-tagged $5,000 Charity Fish would be worth $10,000 and the $15,000 Double Tag Barra would be worth... well.... you do the math.

You've got a month left to register and hit the water fishos. GOOD LUCK!
