We are planning a day of giving back to our veterans at Nitti's Hunters Point Resort on Sunday, August 23rd. This will be our first annual Take a Vet Fishing NFP event. If you would like to join us in honoring our country's servicemen and women, we would love to have you become part of this inaugural event. If you have a boat that you can bring a couple vets out for a fun morning of fishing here on Mille Lacs,would like to volunteer to help or are a veteran that would like to go fishing with us, you can sign up right herehttp://takeavetfishing.org/events/ or e-mail me at tat2jonnie@dishmail.net. 
Fishing starts at 6:30 am with 4 hours on the lake, followed by color guard ceremonies and a great shore lunch at Hunter's point and raffle.
Help us make this event a memorable day for those who proudly served us in the armed forces.

If you are a U.S. Military Veteran and would like to come and spend a day fishing with some pretty great fishermen here on Mille Lacs, we'd love to get you to come to our first annual Take A Vet Fishing Event, and thank you all personally here on Mille Lacs Lake at Nitti's Hunter's Point Resort for your service. All you gotta do is sign up and we take care of everything else to get a few fish and have a little fun. Boats can sign up here, too, if you haven't yet. Our volunteers can sign up there, too.

We are trying to find out a solid number for lodging. If you are signed up and need lodging shoot me a PM. Thanks. 
We have 30 boats and a launch, so we can still sign a few more vets!

20 mph sustained winds with 40-50 mph gusts weren't enough to stop this tough bunch of vets and local guides from sharing a day of giving back to our American vets today at Nitti's Hunters Point Resort on the east side of Mille Lacs. Supported by local area businesses and resorts, Hunter's was the hub of a morning spent fishing the west side of Mille Lacs (where the waves were small) and many area smaller lakes.
At 1230, mustering once again at Hunters Point, guides and vets reported a successful day on the lake for our vets, once again proving that even the toughest day on the lake is better than the best day at work. Good job guides. And for our great vets:
 
Thanks for your service!!

Hey guys! We're starting our post-Memorial Day organization for our Mille Lacs Take A Vet Fishing event that we've started last year doing for our veterans here. 
The event will be our second annual.

It's such a great way to show appreciation for all these veterans have done and sacrificed for our freedoms.

If you are able to take the day, Sunday, August 21st, to show a veteran a good time catching fish out of Hunter's Point Resort on Mille Lacs Lake, or any of the surrounding lakes and would like to show your appreciation, we would love to have you on board.

If you are a veteran that would like to come fishing with an appreciative crew that would like to give some thanks to the military personnel that have given us the freedoms we all enjoy,

Or if you are a person that would just enjoy volunteering for this great event, or care to help sponsor it, please follow this link to sign up
