"Ken Yontz" Lake Minnetonka Take A Vet Fishing Event - 2021

September 19 th


Event Schedule




We are holding off on registration for this event - for a few months. We would like to see if we could make this a "FULL SIZE" Take a Vet Fishing event for 2021. This will ALL DEPEND on Covid and the restrictions that will be placed on us.

If we are unable to host a large event, we WILL be hosting a 2 Day event with 20 Veterans (EXACTLY like our previous events this year).

We will make the decision of a "full event" or small event in June of 2021. Check back on the website for updates!


If we ARE able to have a FULL SIZE event - here are the details....

Welcome to the 2021 "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.
