Today was a special day in the life of your Milwaukee Chapter of Muskies Inc. We were honored to be able to take 17 local Veteran’s musky fishing on Pewaukee lake, on our 10th annual outing for them!
The day, we could not have asked for better weather, started out with our vets and captains meeting at Smokey’s for coffee, snacks and final registration. Introductions and pairings were announced as each boat eased out into the sun rise.
As the teams returned to share their adventures of the day and tell stories; the smiles and laughter is why we do what we do. The crew was treated to lunch, another wonderful cook-out by John. Each vet received a gift bag, full of goodies from our little angels Jo-Anne and Jean. Todd/Nick presented a patriotic TNA Dragon to each also!
Well, we do treat this as a “tournament” and yes we also provide our top 3 finishers with additional gifts!
Mike Grimm 38″, and 2 35 inchers! (with Captain Jim Dembiec)
Joe Arvoy 36 1/4 incher (with Captain Bob Petzke) Cory McElhatton 28″ pike (with Captain Joel Walczak)
Kerry Murry 20″ pike (with Captain Dave Mirek)
We have to thank;
Begin able to give back is what this event and chapter is all about. Take time to thank a vet, shake their hand and who knows,,, you may just make a new friend along the way.
