So iam at the mother-in-laws house tonight who i can't stand and i notice on her coffee table a recent piece of mail form Grand Casio Mille Lacs. On the back of this flyer are pictures of recent big money winners with their picture. I notice one of the pictures to be a popular Mille Lacs resort owner. This person hit on a high stake slot. To be tossing money like that at the tribe. Business must be booming.

Uhm,...interesting. Yeah I think that picture should be posted for all to see. If he just won a big jackpot he isn't going to be in need of any business anyhow.

remember gambling is an addiction and no one can be held accountable for what they do. even if they throw everything their family has worked hard to establish. very sad

metro 1 said it right, gambling is a addiction. "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime".

Yes gambling can be an addiction, but saying that they can't be held accountable to what they do is simply not true. Should we not prosecute drunk drivers who are addicted to alchohol if they kill someone? If someone is addicted to drugs, are they not responsible for what they do while under the influence? Or if they rob and steal to get more money for drugs?

Sad is right, but there is no excuse for becoming addicted in the first place, and having a problem doesn't absolve you from responsibility.

Problem gambler or not, you gotta wonder why a Mille Lacs resort owner would be in the casino.

And they call me a hypocrite. Its not fair to start judging the guy about a gambling addiction. And you can not blame him for becoming addicted if thats the case. Be careful what you say when you start getting into topics like this.

I'm not sure if your post was directed at me or not, but I was not judging wether or not the guy has a gambling addiction. I don't even know who it is.

But as far as any addicition of any sort, it never should absove a person of the actions taken as a result of that addicition. As a recovering addict myself, I can tell you that a person who is addicted to somehting can do some irrational things, but that person should ALWAYS be held responsible for his actions. After all, it is still a choice. AN addict at first made a choice to take the drink, do the drugs, gamble or whatever. Just because it got out of hand doesn't mean he's no longer responsible for that choice.

guys I was having a little fun and was just giving the P.C. answer . Of course a person is responsible for what they do and there shouldn't be any excuses. there should be help if wanted but never excuses. metro

      Thanks, a day well spent with a good person for sure. Thanks again for the work you put in at the end of the trip!  Your fishing needs to get in better shape I think!😓
    • Wanderer
      You and that Senko were dialed in, no doubt about that!  I think if the wind wasn’t as harsh we could’ve explored the deeper water a little better and maybe got the jig bite dialed in on the hens.  Either way it was a fantastic fishing experience. Some day I’ll try a Senko - maybe. 😃   I think you’ll do very well there this weekend.  Thanks again for taking me with.  It was the best day of open water fishing I’ve had for some time, both fishing and partner wise.

      Made my wife move to the other side of the boat... Great weight shift!😅  Had to cook my own supper that night. ☹️

      Kinda quiet here.  Ive been out a number of times and have had a hard time finding anything consistent for active fish,  crappies or eyes.  Did ok this past weekend but fish were" one here and one there".  Cold front Sat. didn't help.  Looking forward to the weekend with some stable weather and a better bite.

      I opened up my by bass fishing season this past weekend with the great company of @Wanderer. The catch numbers were great by most respects.  Size was a little smaller on average than I had hoped, I kinda bragged up this little gem and size fell a bit short. 17 as approx the max size we boated on Sat. Fished seem to be in groups concentrated in certain areas, very scattered in between.  Our best action came fishing away from shore, better fish as well.  Plenty of fish were crusing on the shorelines as well they definitely ran smaller though. Wanderer was able to show me how to work a jig effectively as that has never been a tactic I am proficient at.  Thanks Wanderer.  I tried to show the ease and effectivenss of the Senko.   It all  work well as we probably boated over a hundred fish for the day. Everyone share your 2018 Bass experiences here, keep us in loop of what is working you!

      Thanks, James! That weather really put fish on the move. Our focus for the tournament was to get two big bites and catch a pair over 26". We felt like in order to do that we had to go west. We had a milk run of spots that were taking big wind so we just rotated through them during the day. Our fish came from 3'-13' casting jerkbaits, Rippin Raps and swimbaits. My dad had been catching a lot of walleyes on shallow rocks while pre-fishing for the bass tourney which really tipped us off on some locations and presentations. We only caught six walleyes during the tournament but they were the right ones. We feel unbelievably fortunate to have had such an awesome experience!

      So so true @Borch!! I am excited to see this grow and read all the reports
    • Borch
      Great to see some good information flowing.  I'm looking forward to seeing more good reports and stories from even more of us in the forums and clubs.  Keeping the information flowing in both is essential. Thanks for all you do.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. We're looking for more Official Fishing Report Team members. If you are interested, message me. Have fun and enjoy the ride.
