We need a few volunteers to take Vets kids fishing

8 posts in this topic

Hey All,

The Twin Cities Chapter of Muskies Inc is hosting a youth event where we'll be taking the kids/families of activated and recently returned vets out fishing. Right now we have 40 families signed up with the promise of more. Due to the awesome response we're in need of a few more boats to meet the demand. If we don't get a boat for each then we'll just shuttle them back and forth which is ok too, but not ideal.

The specifics:

Where: Lake Minnetonka, Maynard's Restaurant

When: Friday 21th August (this Friday) 6:30am-noon.

What we need: anyone who can take some people out multispecies fishing on Minnetonka. A boat is required as well as equipment to outfit a kid or two.

-There will also be kids fishing on the docks there and we could use a few people floating around helping them out.

Maynard's will be providing lunch for all those captains. If you're available I urge you all to help out in whatever way you can.

If anyone can help us out drop me a line:

What a great thing to do. I don't think I can get out of work on such short notice, but I'll look at a couple scenarios. If I can just show up last minute, would that be helpful at all?

We can always use the help propster. Just drop me a line ahead of time if you can so I can fill you in on the program.

I would love to help out but we're leaving for a family vacation Friday at noon. It's been a while since I attended an MI event and I'm due. Next time I'm in.

Thanks a lot Shawn for setting this up, sounds like a great event, and thanks for all the work you do for MI, Vets and Kids.

See ya there Shawn; I cant thank those that have set this all up enough, these family's have earned a nice day on the water, I'm just thankful MI is looking to fill that need, out of all the things Ive seen done for the future and the betterment of fishing this is #1.

I'm confident these events will cover the state next year, this is what working together and Muskies Inc in MN is all about.

I finally got to read the full page color write up in the Outdoor News, you guys did a great job Shawn, this is something Muskies inc can be very proud of and I can see expanding across MN very shortly.

Hats off to all those that helped and brought boats, I'm sure it was a day these military family's will remember for along time.

Muskies Inc is more than just a fish with a fool chasing it.

      Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.


      It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.


      Completed in October 2016.


      Can generate 10 megawatts.


      Panel field is 63 acres in size.


      $25 million to build.


      The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses.  The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.


      Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.


      Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.


      One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.

    • Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?

    • find em and send that eyeguy a note... ;)

      I do all of my hunting with a 20ga


      After seeing what my one kids 20ga is capable of I'm really considering going back to one.


    • Short hunt today because of the heat but managed 2 on a quick sundown hunt
