We believe that all Veterans and any Soldier of any branch and service, who have served our country through the years deserve a day on the lake. If this describes you, here's your opportunity to get a chance to fish with some of the best anglers in the Midwest! Well known professional fishermen and others will guide a Veteran and a Soldier for a day on Mille Lacs Lake or the Mississippi River! This will be a fun, exciting, day of fishing in boats that make heads turn. Prizes will be awarded to the most successful anglers! nof="te"
