This fish is worth $10K to these lucky blokes
One lucky fisho has already caught the first tagged fish in Season 7 of Australia’s richest fishing competition.
Palmerston fisho Reece Prior caught a 70cm barramundi worth $10,000 at the Daly while proving you don’t need a boat to win some cash.
He caught the barra land-based with his mate Zenon Theodorou.
The fishing mates have honoured a pact to split any Million Dollar Fish winnings, and Reece will use his half to add upgrades to his new boat.
There are still 99 $10,000 barra swimming around out there, plus eight chances to snag the Million Dollar Fish.
For every $10,000 fish caught an extra $1000 is donated to one of the official Million Dollar Fish charities, as nominated by the winning fisho. Reece chose the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s Darwin Star Ball.
Season 7 of the Million Dollar Fish competition, underwritten by Sportsbet, runs until 31 March 2022. You must be registered for Season 7 to claim the prize money if you catch a tagged fish. Register for free at www.milliondollarfish.com.au.
