The Mercury Marine employees’ military veterans network and the Fond du Lac (Wis.) Chapter of Fishing Has No Boundaries are sponsoring a free fishing trip June 27 for veterans who have disabilities or have been wounded in combat.

The event will take place on Lake Winnebago in Fond du Lac from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Activities before and after the fishing, such as breakfast, will be on Oven Island in Fond du Lac’s Lakeside Park.

The event includes free use of a captained boat; free use of fishing gear, including rods, reels, bait and life jackets; and free breakfast and lunch.

Veterans must obtain and bring with them a current Wisconsin fishing license. They also must arrange transportation to and from the event and have the ability to safely board and get out of boats with minimal assistance. If they use wheelchairs, they must be able to be taken out of the chairs and placed into boats.

An event schedule can be accessed here.

Veterans can fill out and submit forms to participate at the following locations in Fond du Lac:

  • Tuffy's Outpost on North Main Street
  • Summit Automotive (next to the DMV on Rolling Meadows Drive)
  • Steve's Military Surplus on Pioneer Road
  • Merlin on Johnson Street.
