If you love something, set it free...

Happy Monday!

I thought I would share a few pictures from my weekend up north! I spent the weekend at my dad's house on Lobster Lake in Alexandria, MN.

My entire family loves to fish, and surprisingly it took me 23 years before I caught my first walleye! I've caught literally everything imaginable, even turtles, but this weekend I finally reeled in my first walleye :) (Actually...I caught two this weekend, but the first one fell off right before we got it in the boat!)

Just comparing teeth :D

There is a great story to this picture!

Friday afternoon everyone went out fishing. My dad's friend, Bill, cast out his line and turned away for a split second to do something. During that short time, he got a bite and the fish pulled his entire pole into the water and swam away. His favorite pole was long gone before he had even realized what happened!

The next day, we went back out on the lake. Just as we were about to pull up the anchor to switch spots, we realize there was a bobber that was tangled around the anchor. Bill's son slowly begins pulling up both the anchor and the bobber and starts following the line all the way down to, yep, you guessed it, Bill's long lost (or so we thought!) fishing pole!

Lobster Lake is a huge lake, 1,308 acres to be exact, so the odds of our anchor miraculously snagging his pole at the bottom of the lake was pretty crazy! (Unfortunately, there was no fish on the end of the line!)

Like the saying goes, "If you love something set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was." :)
