Take a Vet Fishing on Mille Lacs Lake

“Fred Knudsen” Launch Boat Event


All participants must have a current Minnesota fishing license. You are required to provide your own fishing license.

This event will be open to local Veterans only for registration. Veterans who participated in the August 10th event will not need to register for this August 11th event (you will automatically be selected to attend). With Sunday being open to the local Veterans in the area, a hotel room is not offered. 

McQuoids Launch Boats: There will be 2 separate launch boats reserved for Take a Vet Fishing registered participants. There will be a licensed launch boat captain on each launch who are experienced fisherman and will always put your safety first. They will provide fishing advice and teach you some new techniques. Even bait your hook! You are in luck! Each launch boat has a bathroom so you will not need to go far. Also included on the launch boats will be fishing poles and bait. You do not need to wear a life jacket while on the launch but you sure can! There will be chairs available for seating as well.
