Spitting Fish
Austin, TX
This Spitting Fish in Austin was built by Bob "Daddy-O" Wade. "The Big One" was originally installed on the roof of "The Big One" restaurant. In 1993, the Hula Hut moved into the space and installed the fish in the river next to the outdoor dining tables. For $2, diners can watch the fish spit water. These photos are from 2018. In 2019, the fish was restored and repainted by Blackout Signs and Metalworks. For more, see this website.

The Giant Fish was created in 1995 by Martin Dawe and Randy Blain. It stands at the entrance to the Atlanta Fish Market, a seafood restaurant. This salmon sculpture is 65 feet long and weighs 50 tons. It is made of solid copper and steel and is the largest fish sculpture in the world. In December, it wears a Santa hat.

The Redfish foam statue has been at this Chuy's restaurant since at least 2007. It was restored around 2012. The fish has been the chain's mascot since 1982 when the first restaurant opened in 1982. [map]

Charlie the Tuna
Charleston, OR
Gil
Sekiu, WA
Rosie
Sekiu, WA
Gil
Sekiu, WA
The original Charlie the Tuna statue was installed in Charleston in 1968. It was carved from wood and about eight feet tall. In 2008, the statue was stolen and destroyed by vandals. This replacement statue was built in 2009. This statue's fins have springs which make the statue appear to wave in the wind. For more, see these websites: 1 and 2. [map]

The wood carved statues of Gil and Rosie represent walking fish. I believe the statues were built in 2005 as mascots for the annual Clallam Bay-Sekiu Walk for Life. The second statue of Gil is probably more recent. It is located in front of the Olson's Resort restaurant. [Rosie map]

Fisherman's Dream
Regent, ND
These Fisherman's Dream metal sculptures were created in 2006 by Gary Greff who has built many other sculptures around town. The largest fish in this sculpture group is a leaping trout which is about 70 feet tall. [map]
