catch of the day?

Thorold Ontario

While fish in lake Onario on a boat with my old rod and spinner set up,I had a fish on so after fighting for about 30min I thought I had lost it. But I was reeling in and it pulled as I got it to shore. I saw a small little perch on about a foot and about 10 feet from the boat it got harder to reel in as I got it in I noticed it had changed the fish and grown to 4 feet long and when I got it in it was a 4,7 foot long Musky. It was amazing for first fish of the day. But the amazing thing was I still took the Perch out of its mouth!. . . . . . Sorry I don't have a picture but my camera's broken from water.
