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

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
