Forty minutes of tough winding by fishermen (from left) Joseph Petelo (28), of Christchurch, John Morris (30), of Dunedin, Hayden Guise (30), of Wanaka and Dan Wells (30), of Dunedin, ended with the landing of three large salmon yesterday.

The men were fishing from a boat near Port Chalmers, each using a silver lure on a green paravane, and caught (from left) a 5.4kg, a 7.3kg and a 6.4kg salmon.
