Any fish too big to measure is worth Fish of the Week.
Young Christopher Swon caught his while muskie fishing the first time in November with some friends on Bankson Lake in southwest Michigan.
``He caught the muskie on a Rapala and it was the only one the whole weekend,'' his dad Peter said. ``The tape measure he had was only 40 inches long, and the fish was bigger than that!''
I like that way of describing a big fish.
The Willowbrook fisherman released his muskie after photos.
