A $10,000 barramundi caught in the Million Dollar Fish competition

Million Dollar Fish Season 2 started October 1 and SIX of the $10,000 barra have already caught!

The sixth barramundi was caught at the Daly River on October 16 by Nikita Jason.

Ms Jason’s partner Kurt Baumann is a previous winner who caught a $10,000 barra earlier this month, as well as a $10,000 barra in Season 1.

When asked what brought her luck, Ms Jason said it was her children.

CrownBet CEO Matt Tripp said the regular return of Million Dollar Fish red tags was no surprise.

“It seems along with the best fishing locations in Australia, the Northern Territory also has the best anglers,” he said.

“Well done to Nikita, it looks like the Daly River is the place to be chasing red tagged barramundi, given it’s the third to be caught in that location this year.”

In Season 2 of Million Dollar Fish, 101 barramundi were tagged and released across the Territory with 100 carrying $10,000 cash prize tags.

There are still 94 $10,000 barra out there and the prized $1,000,000 barramundi is yet to be caught.

And you have until February 28, 2017.
