Some fishos said none would be recaptured, but 10 of the 66 tagged $10,000 barra in the Million Dollar Fish (MDF) promotion have now been caught.
The latest captor was former AFL player Brent Renouf, who caught a tagged barra in Darwin Harbour on February 17.
The 67th barra, worth $1 million, was still out there at the time of this post.
The MDF promotion finishes at the end of February, but rumours are that it will be extended, or a similar promotion will kick off.
If so, there’s never been a better time to fish the NT.

And no need to go further than Darwin Harbour, where most of the 67 tagged fish were released, although tagged fish were released right across the Top End.
The fish have red tags, different from the usual yellow fisheries tags.
