Boat towed to safety near Fish Creek

Two men fishing offshore in Fish Creek were rescued on Thursday afternoon after their bass boat took on water.  The Gibraltar Fire and Rescue, the DNR and the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a distress call around 2 pm.  Assistant Fire Chief Jared Anderson says the boat had lost power and was drifting and taking on water when they arrived on the scene. 


The rescue took about one hour, according to Anderson.  He says the men called 911 to report the issue with their boat.  No further details are available at this time.
