Chugiak sweeps Post 17
The final home series of the season for Kodiak Post 17 wasn’t an enjoyable one. Chugiak, the high school state champions and Alaska's top legion team, swept a four-game set against Kodiak at Baranof Field, winning Saturday’s league games 8-1 and 8-2, and taking both nonleague games, 18-2 and 4-3. Post 17 enters its final four games of the regular season on a three-game losing skid that has left the Bears at 8-6 an...

RUBBISH NO MORE: Local artist designs marine debris ornaments for Capitol Christmas tree
Every year, a different state decorates the Capitol Christmas tree in Washington, D.C. This time, it’s Alaska’s turn, and 10 Alaskan artists are designing the ornaments.

A Kodiak flounder that rocks your soul
I’ll be the first to admit that halibut fishing has been tough so far this year. There are fewer fish and they’re scattered. To find better fishing you have to move deeper and resort to heavy gear in many cases. We love our halibut as much as the next family, but in truth we have a better answer when hosting guests or younger folks looking for action and less effort with heavy gear. We take them out for flounder! ...

BUILT KODIAK TOUGH: Local man awaits arrival of Xtaero demo boat
If you’re building a rugged boat designed to tackle the most extreme environments, it makes sense to design one for a Kodiakan and show it off in Kodiak, one of the largest fishing ports in the United States. A Seattle-based boat company president says that's exactly what he had in mind when he built his first demonstration boat. Kodiak resident Doug Frick would be the first Kodiakan to own a 25-foot Xtaero boat, ...

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game set its sights Sunday on hunters, urging them to freeze their trigger fingers when they see collared elk.

FISH FACTOR: Sockeye salmon run goes from bust to unbelievable
The world’s biggest sockeye salmon run at Bristol Bay went from “bust” to “unbelievable” in one week. Landings last week broke records every day for five days for that time frame, bringing the total sockeye catch to nearly 28 million fish on an unusually long-tailed run — and the reds were still coming on strong. That had overloaded processors scurrying to replace workers they’d sent home the previous week when th...
