Mike Blewett waits for high tide Thursday near Halibut Point Road in Sitka, as his fishing boat is refloated. Blewett was returning from a trip with a full load of coho and chinook salmon Wednesday evening when he fell asleep and drove the troller aground. Falling asleep at the wheel is a common hazard for trollers working long hours before the season ends. Blewett is coach of the Sitka High School boys basketball team.
