 Welcome to the 2023 "Ken Yontz" Lake Minnetonka - Take a Vet Fishing event!

MINNESOTA FISHING LICENSE is needed for all participants. You must provide your own fishing license.

Boats can launch anywhere on the Lake. If you decide to launch elsewhere, you still need to check-in with the TAVF reps at Lord Fletchers to confirm you are safely on the water and you have your Veteran(s) with you.

Boat Captains are responsible for providing your own live bait.

Registration/Check-In starts at 6:00am for both Veterans and Guides at the Lord Fletchers parking lot.

Flag Presentation and the National Anthem will begin at 12:15pm honoring all of our active and retired US Military Veterans at Lord Fletchers. All families of participating military personnel are welcome to join. When you signup online, we ask how many family members will be attending to help plan for seating and food.
