‘Operation Muskie’ Organizers Set Online Auction Fundraiser

An online auction to raise funds for “Operation Muskie” is set for 7 p.m. CST April 17 at this website.

Now in its sixth year, Operation Muskie is a fishing event that pairs 20 military personnel with 10 of the country’s top muskie guides for an all-expenses-paid fishing trip to Walsh’s Bay Store Camp on Lake of the Woods.

Since the inaugural Operation Muskie in 2008, organizers have established a nonprofit group dedicated to Operation Muskie’s mission of “putting thanks into action” by giving veterans the opportunity to relax after recent combat deployments

This year’s Operation Muskie is set for June 24-28.

The auction, which has grown into Operation Muskie’s primary fundraiser, includes a variety of lures, gear and fishing trips. The auction is open to anyone, and the list of items for auction is available here.
