I won $81 Playing Penny Slots

Jimmy and I went to Grand Casino Mille Lacs last weekend. We also saw this really big fish next to a really big mostly frozen lake.

The Garrison Walleye was built in 1965 when Garrison declared itself the “Walleye Capital of the World.” This fishing village is wrapped around the most popular walleye lake in the state, Mille Lacs. It was originally intended as a portable fiberglass fish to accompany Miss Garrison in the annual town parade. The 26′ long fish has since been affixed to a cement base and serves as a beacon for boaters and ice fisherman lost on the lake.
