Reeling in a big fish is often reward enough for many people who fish on a regular basis, but Australia's Northern Territory government and sponsor CrownBet are offering a true prize for those who are able to snag a special winning fish.
The Million Dollar Fish competition is being held to entice tourists to the area and establish the region as a prime fishing destination. The campaign is now challenging people to hunt for one of 75 tagged barramundi fish, promising to provide cash prizes for some of the best catches.
Considering some of the things people have put themselves up to on reality TV for the chance to win a million dollars, it's amazing that something as simple as throwing a line in the water could turn you into an instant millionaire.
