FAQ:

What is a Barramundi? Only one of the most exciting fish in the world to catch, and (in my opinion) the most delicious to the taste should you decide to keep and eat one. As a result, it is arguably Australia’s most popular restaurant and table fish Wikipedia says, It grows to about 180cm (6 feet) in length and can weigh up to about 60kg (130 pounds).”Prized by anglers for their good fighting ability, barramundi are reputed to be good at avoiding fixed nets and are best caught on lines and with fishing lures.”

What should I bring? The Australian sun is rated as strong. For your own protection, we recommend a sun protective hat, sun glasses, quality sunscreen and insect repellent is provided. Maybe bring some zinc cream for your nose, a long-sleeved and collared shirt
are also advisable.

What is AUD $1 million worth in my currency? Around USD $700,000, depending on the exchange rates. Please use the currency converter on this page to check for yourself, but it’s a lot of money in any currency!

  • I’m not from Australia, can I still enter the competition? Yes, international entrants are eligible to enter the Million Dollar Fish Competition (and catch a tagged fish and receive the associated prize money). However, some minor prize pool draws in the event of the prize not being won may be open to Australian residents only.

What happens once the Million Dollar Fish season ends? You can come and fish anyway. Prices still apply exactly as listed on our pricing page, it’s just that there is no competition running after March 31st 2019, and prices will change to high season

  • hotel prices. March-May/June is called “The Run-off” All the water that fell on land in the Northern Territory during the wet season (and that’s a LOT of water) is heading for the ocean via the rivers. This is an awesome time for fishing the swamps and rivers for Barramundi, because the males are heading downstream to find the females, and hungry predators are out in force waiting for the prey to head for the ocean with the river currents.
  • See the tour pricing page or Contact us for more information or to make a booking.
  • The rest of the year, when you get the best of conditions for Blue-Water fishing in the pristine waters off the Northern Territory. Blue water fishing charters are significantly cheaper than Barramundi fishing charters. Clean, blue water, unspoiled, unpolluted,and teeming with fish of monstrous sizes. The mangroves are also teeming with large predators, so you can take your pick, or even do both – a day of blue water and a day of mangrove fishing.
