Operation Muskie is an annual event to honor our Nation’s Iraq and Afghan vets with a Muskie fishing trip on Lake of the Woods. www.operationmuskie.com
Join Pete as he chats with legendary anglers Doug Johnson and Dick Pearson on previous and upcoming Operation Muskie events…and they have a few good fishing stories to share as well!
Pete is also joined by John Kriesel, one of our war heroes who was seriously injured while serving our Country in Iraq. John landed the largest muskie on the trip and shares what that experience was like. During his military career, he was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, Purple Heart Medal, and Bronze Star Medal. John continues to live life to its fullest viewing his survival as a blessing and recently announced his candidacy to run for Minnesota’s House District 57a. http://johnkriesel.org/
