Operation Muskie


Welcome to Operation Muskie

Operation Muskie provides recent overseas veterans with the fishing trip of a lifetime on Lake of the Woods. Each year this event pairs a new group of 20 vets with 10 of the greatest fishing guides for an all-expenses-paid, fully-guided "welcome home" at world-famous Baystore Camp.

Operation Muskie got started when  Dick Pearson contacted Frank and Laura Walsh at Baystore C
amp about reserving a cabin  to take a returning Veteran muskie fishing.  Frank told Dick to find 19 more deserving Veterans and they would host them free of charge. 


With the help of  Doug Johnson and many other  friends and the contributions from hundreds of patriotic people, the idea grew into Operation Muskie.

The camaraderie between vets who have "been there, done that" and those who appreciate their sacrifices, revealed a meaning that went far beyond the fishing alone.

With the help of generous individual gifts, as well as support from sponsors, Operation Muskie continues to meet it's mission: "Putting Thanks Into Action!"
