The weather was wonderful in Chicago this past weekend – it was actually nice to be outside! We were debating whether to go to the zoo or fishing with my in-laws, and since they preferred the latter, we went for it. I’d never been fishing before, so I thought it would be cool to try something new and see if I liked it. And I certainly did!
We started the day off by going to get our licenses and some bait. It is crazy how many things you have to take into account when you are going fishing – choose the right hook, the right bait, the right bobber, etc. Thank God Michelle knew what she was doing and decided for us.
Our initial plan was to go to Lake Michigan, but one of the salesmen recommended we go to Busse Lake in Elk Grove and we followed his advice. The area was very nice, even though it was a little bit crowded when we got there.
Dan and I were terrible with the fishing pole; so we had to spend most of our time untangling the fishing line instead of catching bluegills. It was the perfect excuse to make fun of each other though. Alex and Michelle were awesome, and they caught a fish every 2 minutes at least!
Overall, it was such a fun experience and I can’t wait to learn more about it!
And you guys, have you tried to do something out of the ordinary this past weekend? Have you ever gone fishing? If so, did you like it?
I hope you are having a great start of the week!
