            Five fishermen are safe after being rescued from their grounded fishing vessel yesterday morning along the Alaska Peninsula.

            The U.S. Coast Guard reports the Capt'n Andrew, a 57-foot fishing boat, ran aground on Bold Cape, four miles southeast of King Cove Sunday morning.

            The fishing vessels Golden Dawn and Just In Case responded after the Coast Guard put out an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast requesting local vessels that could safely assist the stricken boat.

            A crewmember of the Just In Case launched a skiff and took the five-person crew off the partially submerged vessel and transferred them back to his boat, while the Golden Dawn crew relayed information to the Coast Guard. Two Air Station Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopters forward-deployed in St. Paul were launched but were not needed.

            Jennifer Whitcomb, a Coast Guard search and rescue controller at the Joint Rescue Coordination Center in Juneau said Good Samaritan vessels play an essential role in remote rescues, when vast distances can delay a Coast Guard response.

            The Just In Case safely transported all five crewmembers from the Capt'n Andrew to King Cove with no reported injuries.

            The Capt'n Andrew reportedly is carrying approximately 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel. Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios says there was no immediate sign of pollution from the 57-foot boat The Coast Guard says a salvage vessel is heading to the grounding site and is expected to arrive today (Monday). The Coast Guard is investigating the incident.

            Weather on scene was reportedly 10-knot winds and less than a mile of visibility.

            Three of Kodiak Island's major sockeye producing lakes are considered by some to be in a declining state of production, which could drag down the local salmon industry.

            The Kodiak Island Borough Assembly at last week's regular meeting voted to support a lake fertilization program which is hoped will boost production in the lakes.

            KMXT's Maggie Wall has more.

            Researchers in Kodiak routinely survey the archipelago's marine mammal population. Migrations of whales and populations of harbor seals help biologists help track the health of the ecosystems which are indicators for things like climate change and other phenomena. KMXT's Jacob Resneck rode along on a recent air survey and filed this report.

            The top-seeded Wasilla Warriors ended Kodiak's surprise run in the Northern Lights Conference Basketball Tournament with a 43-31 victory in the championship game on Saturday night in Homer.

            Wasilla earns the Northern Lights Conference number one seed to the state tournament, which is next week, while Kodiak gets the second spot. The Palmer Moose will get the third berth from the NLC.

            The Bears entered the tournament as the lowest seed among Northern Division squads, and were riding an eight-game losing streak before pulling off two upsets en route to the NLC championship game. They upset the South Division's number one seed, the Kenai Kardinals 55-42 on Thursday, and then beat the Moose on Friday 32-30. It'll be the first appearance at state for the Bears in five years.

            The Lady Bears weren't as fortunate in the tourney. After a first-round upset of the number one seed Kardinals, Kodiak dropped two straight, first to the Colony Knights 41-31, and then in a loser-out match against the Soldotna Stars 45-42. In both games, the Bears' opponents came from behind for the wins. The Knights were down by three after one period Friday, but lead by six after three. Saturday morning, the Stars went on a 17-to-1 run for the win. It's the first time in three seasons the Lady Bears didn't make it to state.

            The Knights beat the Warriors in the championship game, and both will be joined at state by the Stars, who went on to down Homer for the third spot from the NLC.
