Welcome to Veterans on the Water
Veterans on the Water was started by Steve Gillaspie (Vietnam Veteran) of Arlington, MN in 2016. Our goal is to create a fishing experience of excitement, fun and laughter for our Veterans at no cost to them.
All of our boats have been rebuilt specifically for Veterans on the Water with custom designs, features and of course the red, white and blue! We own our own boats and do not rely on others to provide them for our fishing trips. The current fleet at Veterans on the Water includes 4 – 16′ Lund boats and 3 pontoons with more to come.
Our last major outing was on Lake Winnibigoshish, one of Minnesota’s great walleye lakes. September 2-4, 2016. We stayed 2 nights and provided 3 cabins along with a professional fishing guide. What a fun trip this was! THIS WAS AT NO COST TO THE VETERANS.
We are currently working on finalizing some of our future major fishing outings and will update the site accordingly. In the meantime, Veterans on the Water also offers several “non-scheduled” fishing trips so if you are interested in coming along with us or want to suggest an outing, feel free to contact us today and find out more about how our fishing trips for veterans work.
