Double the Dough returns as Million Dollar Fish heads into final weeks

Fishos have more reasons than ever to drop a line and hook themselves a coveted red-tagged Million Dollar Fish barramundi, with the famous Double the Dough initiative to return every weekend until the competition ends on March 31, 2023.

To celebrate the final countdown of Season 8 of Million Dollar Fish, the first registered person to land a $10,000 barra each weekend in March, between 12am Saturday – 11:59pm Sunday, will instead pocket a cool $20,000.

There are still 83 Season 8 barramundi swimming across the Top End waiting to be caught as part of Australia’s richest fishing competition, underwritten by SportsBet. In addition, there are nine fish carrying a tag worth a million bucks. The $1 million dollar barra are not part of the Double the Dough campaign, but they do remain eligible to be caught year-round. To claim any cash though, you MUST register for Season 8 by March 31, otherwise you can’t claim the big bucks.

To date 17 Season 8 fish have been caught, and $180,000 paid out to lucky anglers.

Season 8 ends on 31 March 2023. As well as making you eligible to claim cash if you catch a tagged barra, registering also automatically enters you into the Lucky Prize Pool, which includes thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes up for grabs including holiday and flights packages, and fishing and camping gear.

Season 9 has ended.
