We are pleased and honored to once again be invited to Operation Muskie on Lake of the Woods. Operation Muskie is an annual event that is now in it's seventh year, which hosts 20 war veterans that have recently been deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan. At the end of this years event, Operation Muskie will have welcomed 140 vets to Bay Store Camp for a week of fishing. Ten great Muskie guides donated their time this to take these guys out for a week of fishing. One of those guides is Pete Maina, who we tag along with to capture this great event. Each guide takes two different vets out each day, so each can learn the most from this trip.
Lake of the woods is a massive 1,000,000+ acre body of water occupying parts of two Canadian provinces and the state of Minnesota. Contained within are over 4,552 islands and 65,000 miles of shoreline. With all of that shoreline, this is an esox anglers dream.
Bay Store Camp is our home base, and the launch pad for our hunt for the fish of 10,000 casts. Frank & Laura Walsh are our hosts, and have been since the very first Operation Muskie event. In our boat we try a variety of baits to work over the massive amount of shoreline that we fish, where everywhere looks like a “juicy” spot.
In addition to the fishing, the weeks schedule allows for the group to get together and discuss the days events. Operation Muskie is about the camaraderie among the group as much as it is about the fishing.
Thank You to all the Men and Women of our armed forces.

Operation Muskie could not happen without the generous support of individual donations, industry gifts-in-kind, and corporate sponsorship. A special thanks to Mills Fleet Farm, Amsoil, and Walsh's Bay Store Camp.
Thank you to all of the people who have helped make year six of this great event possible, many of whom have been volunteering since the events inception.
