            The Kodiak King Salmon Derby got some special visitors last week. A television crew from Fox Sports Northwest was in town and went out on a charter boat looking for the big fish. 

            You can get more information on the tournaments - and buy those all-important tickets - here in town at Mack's, Cy's and Kodiak Adventures, and at the Sportsman's Lodge in Old Harbor.

Tournament organizer Judi Kidder:



--          (Kings 1                      13 sec              "Oh, so much excitement ... for hogs this time?")


            She said the film crew and host of "Hawg (hog) Quest," went out with guide Rick Baker, and had a successful trip:


--          (Kings 2                      10 sec              "I was on the boat ... some hawgs and weigh them in.")


            Overall, she said the tournament is going well, though the size of the kings hauled in are running on the small side:


--          (Kings 3                      25 sec              "We've had over 90 ... are hatchery kings.")


            Kidder said that unlike other fishing derbies, the weights of the leaders are not revealed during the tournament:


--          (Kings 4                      31 sec              "What we found last ... one of the magic numbers.")


            There's not much time left to participate, as the tournament ends in less than two weeks:


--          (Kings 5                      16 sec              "The tournament ends ... be revealed in time.")
