One lucky fisho has caught the first tagged fish in Season 7 of Australia’s richest fishing competition, Million Dollar Fish.
Reece Prior, from the Northern Territory, reeled in a barramundi worth $10,000 at one of the Territory’s most famous fishing hotspots, the Daly River. He caught the lucky barra while land-based fishing with his friend Zenon Theodorou, with the pair sharing a pact to split any Million Dollar Fish winnings.
For every $10,000 fish caught, an extra $1000 is donated to an official Million Dollar Fish charity, as nominated by the winning fisho. Reece chose the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s Darwin Star Ball.
