Size Matters this Christmas in Territory fishing competition

Australia’s richest fishing competition has raised the stakes for registered anglers of Million Dollar Fish Season 8, with a brand new ‘Size Matters’ campaign rolled out for December.

Thousands of extra dollars are up for grabs as part of the exciting new campaign. The fisho who catches the longest $10,000 tagged barra in December is set to catch a massive cash bonus. Whoever is lucky enough to claim the crown will receive $1,000 per centimetre of their catch, as measured on the official Million Dollar Fish brag mat. So if the biggest $10,000 tagged fish caught in December is 55cm, the lucky fisho wins $55,000. The campaign excludes the nine fish carrying tags worth $1 million.

The ‘Size Matters’ campaign begins today and ends on 31 December 2022. We’ll announce the winner in January 2023.

Australia’s richest fishing competition goes from strength to strength

SportsBet NT Operations and Partnerships Manager Thijs Bors said Australia’s richest fishing competition keeps going from strength to strength.

“We’re backing local and interstate fishos alike to fish the Territory for the chance to bag the longest Season 8 barra of the month, and cash in big time with $1,000 paid out per centimetre,” he said. “Size really does matter this Christmas.”

“To win any cash or prizes as part of Million Dollar Fish, registering is paramount. It’s quick, and it’s easy. By registering, you might find yourself a million dollars richer!”

Season 8 of Million Dollar Fish, underwritten by SportsBet, has smashed records just two months in. Fishos caught a whopping 16 prize-tagged barramundi across the Top End. A total of $170,000 in prize money has also been dished out to local and interstate fishos since 1 October 2022.

This season’s prize purse is the largest ever, with nine fish worth a million dollars now released in five fishing regions – Tiwi Islands, Darwin, Katherine, Kakadu and Arnhem Land.

There’s plenty of time to hit the water and catch a red-tagged barramundi. Season 8 of Million Dollar Fish runs until 31 March 2023.
