Mission Musky Complete is NOW accepting applications for this year’s retreat
Who is Mission Musky Complete?
We are a nonprofit organization focused on helping Veterans transition from military life to civilian by passing on our musky fishing passion. Coming h ome isn’t always easy. A weekend fishing adventure with other Veterans on one of the best Musky lakes in the nation may help you develop the skills to continue to heal and increase your network of friends. We are here to help you.
Upcoming Retreat: September 16 – 19, 2021 – Leech Lake, MN
We take 12 Veterans on an annual, all-expenses paid, guided fishing retreat. We keep it small to enhance the experience for the selected Veterans.
About Leech Lake
Leech Lake, MN is known to have some monster muskies. Leech Lake is located within the Chippewa National Forest and is also known to be an excellent fishery for walleye, largemouth bass, northerns, sunfish and crappies; though, we are partial to our muskies. We chose Fall for our event because it gives our guides a better opportunity to help our Vets catch one of these beautiful beasts.
In 2013, Matt, Mike, and Todd (all veterans) met while at Operation Muskie. They continued their friendship after the event and met multiple times a year to fish together. They found out that Operation Muskie was ending and knew that they had to do something since they all got so much from their experience.
Matt, Mike, and Todd decided to get together with a group of Veteran friends at Lake Alexander, MN in the summer of 2016 for some musky fishing. Everyone attending had a great time. After the event, they decided that they needed to host an annual retreat for Veterans in the spirit of Operation Muskie. Musky Mission Complete (MMC) was born.
Our Annual Retreat
At each event, the 12 selected Veterans receive a guided fishing trip where they fish with professional Musky guides every day. Each Veteran gets hands-on instruction from these volunteer professional guides.
This all-expenses paid retreat is located at Anderson’s Grand Vu Lodge on Leech Lake, MN.
Fish all day and meet 11 other Vets who know what you may be going through.
