What an eventful and memorable last four days we have experienced with two more of our Nation’s finest heroes Mike Mills and Sam Gore. Both of these men came to our presentation at the East Grand Forks Minnesota Cabela’s where Cabela’s presented the men with $500 checks or the option to grab fishing gear packages valued at $1k each…they opted for the gear lol. Fish Addictions presented Hunters Helping Heroes a check for $1k, Rivers West provided everyone with waterproof fishing jacket (Tailwind Pak Jak) for the trip and the locals showed in full force…veterans, fire fighters police officers, horseback mounties, the General Manager of Cabela’s and just a whole community of great people to support our two heroes Mike and Sam!!!!!
The presentation story was featured on the local news and can be seen at (http://www.wdaz.com/event/article/id/18411/ ) and also a few newspapers!!!
Our boat (guided by Brian of Lakeroad Lodge) put a brutal beating on the walleye today bringing back a full 42 fish limit for our boat of walleye and saugers…we caught just over 100 fish for the day and tons of slots and big fish released to grow another day but it was a fantastic trip on the boat for everyone and you couldn’t have asked for more beautiful weather 25 miles out on Lake of the Woods!!!! The second day we fished a half morning and put another stomp on the fish before everyone had to treck home after a perfect fishing weekend, if you have never caught a walleye before this is the place to come and try it out…Lake of the Woods is out of control!!!
We want to extend a HUGE thank you to Sarah Prout with Cabela’s in East Grand Forks, Minnesota, Rivers West, Speedy Signs, Brian and Penny of Lakeroad Lodge in Baudette, MN, Mike, Jon and Shawn of both the Fish Addictions and Hunt Addictions crew and a ton of the pro-staff from the Fish Addictions crew who came and fished with us all both days and lets not forget thanking Sam and Mike for their service and sacrifices to this great Nation!!!
