Big Catch at Moraine
Think the possibility of making a record-breaking catch in Moraine State Park’s Lake Arthur seems fishy?  Think again!  Butler native Bob Schuller shocked the community when he reeled in a 52-inch Muskie during an evening fishing trip in March of 2012.  The fish was even bigger than his 2 ½ -year-old daughter!  For being so large, the fish hardly fought being reeled in.  As an avid outdoorsman, Schuller had caught fish in the 40-inch range in the lake before, but this catch was a big surprise.  He was just happy he was able to get it in into the boat! With over 3,000 acres of fishing, anything is possible in Lake Arthur.  When will you make your big catch?
