KODIAK- Four fishermen have been rescued from a beach on Unalaska Bay near Dutch Harbor after bad weather forced their vessel ashore.

Coast Guard helicopter crews based in Kodiak took the fishermen to Dutch Harbor Saturday morning.
The crew aboard the Homer-based Chaos reported Friday night that their 54-foot vessel had been at anchor but that the line broke and forced their vessel to shore. The crew took shelter on the beach and waited for help.
High winds prevented rescuers from hoisting the men to safety until about 9 a.m. Saturday.
