Operation Muskie less than a week a way!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well boys, this time next week I will be up on LOTW fishing as part of Operation Muskie. I am hoping that the fish cooperate with us, and the veterans catch some big girls. Can't hardly believe that it is finally here, after a year and a half of planning. Seems like forever ago when Dick and I started this whole thing. I just wanted to give a big THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who donated or helped out in any way, big or small. This is a trip of a lifetime for most of these veterans and I think that they well deserve it. There are a couple of veterans who have never caught a muskie before, and some that have never been on LOTW before. I am sure they will fall in love with it. I surely think it is paradise! Anyways...we have some great guides coming in and it should be a blast. I got pretty lucky with my guides, actually very lucky. See what you think:

Day 1: Pete Maina

Day 2: Pete Maina

Day 3: Dick Pearson

Day 4: Steve Jonesi

Pete will also have a film crew up there and will be doing an episode of The Next Bite on Operation Musie to be aired in the future!

Thanks for helping get the guys out on the water Bret, I know the first thing my Nephew wanted to do was get on the water, it really means allot to those guys, Pete's gonna be a blast for them and Dick is an American Muskie Icon, that Jonesi fella is one of the funniest best guys you'll ever meet and the guy is a great fisherman to boot, good luck and have a great safe trip.

Thank You

John Underhill

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
