Million Dollar Fish charity tag barra caught
THE first charity fish of Million Dollar Fish Season 5 competition has been caught.
Territorian Adam Waye caught the lucrative 74cm barra worth $5,000 at Bridge Lagoon, 20km up river.
Worth $5,000 in total, the purple tagged fish will see $2,500 go to Waye, with $2,500 donated to Darwin Star Ball, which raises money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation in the Top End.
Waye said he was thrilled to catch a charity fish.
“I’ve been fishing in the Territory for over five years and never thought I would reel in a tagged fish through the Million Dollar Fish competition.
“I’ve never won anything in my life, I must admit it’s a pretty good feeling.
“The Starlight Children’s Foundation has been doing amazing things for years, so it makes me feel good to be able to donate money to help the kids.”
