Giant Fish [gone]

This Giant Fish stood in front of the River Bend Sport Shop. These photos are from 2007. By 2008, the store and statue were gone.

Giant Fish
Manitowish Waters, WI
Giant Fish [gone]
Hayward, WI
This Giant Fish statue in Manitowish Waters might be a smallmouth bass. It is installed next to Swanberg's Bavarian Inn. Does anyone know what type of fish it is meant to represent and/or the statue's history? [map]

This Giant Fish statue in Hayward might have been a largemouth bass. It was installed around the side of the building of Pastika's Bait & Tackle. It appeared to have been used as a fountain at some point. This photo is from 2011. Pastika's was founded in 1921 and closed in 2012. The building was demolished. The signs were saved by the nearby National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame. I don't know if they saved this statue as well or if it was destroyed.

Giant Fish
Chetek, WI
Giant Fish
Ashland, WI
This Giant Fish is located at the Rod & Gun Sport Shop. It appears to be a bass. It has been here since at least 2005. The store opened in 1949 so the fish might even date back to the 1960s or 1970s. [map]

I believe this Giant Fish in Ashland represents a largemouth bass. In 2007, this statue was painted green and installed closer to the water of Lake Superior's Chequamegon Bay. It was located next to the Bodin's on the Lake sporting goods store which is now closed. This photo is from 2011 when the statue was installed at Hudbucks Four Seasons Repair.

Giant Bass
Clarks Grove, MN
This Giant Bass is installed at a BP gas station. It was installed around 1979 when the station's convenience store housed the Fisherman's Stop. The giant fish was on the roof at that time. It was moved to the pole in the early 1990s. These photos are from 2012. By 2018, the giant fish was installed on the ground. [map]

Giant Fish [gone]
Minneapolis, MN
Giant Fish
Pinewood Springs, CO
This Giant Fish in Minneapolis was located behind Phillips Garden, a landscaping business. It was created by Jeff Millikan and was installed in front of the building for several years. Another artwork replaced it and the fish was moved back into this storage area. When I took these photos in 2007, I was told that the artist would be reclaiming the fish soon. I assume this statue is gone now. For more, see this website.

This Giant Fish in Pinewood Springs is installed on top of the sign of the Villa Tatra restaurant. [map]
