Time of the Monster salmon
The late Keith Reinke with a massive looking 33 lb salmon caught in the Waitaki River just a few days before the 1995 annual salmon fishing contest. Strange as it sounds today, if Keith had caught it during the competition it wouldn’t have won. The heaviest fish that year was caught by M. McVie and weighed 16.78kg (over 36 lbs).
