The Big Fish was notably featured on the 2009 list of Minnesota's 10 Most Endangered Historic Places, but it was subsequently rebuilt and restored and now looks as good as new.
Big Fish Restaurant
I drove by the Big Fish this last weekend and it's looking pretty sharp! The structure has been repaired and it has a complete new paint job. A local resident provided the money to restore it and the Big Fish should provide many more years of roadside enjoyment.[John Miller, 05/18/2010]
An article in the Sept. 12, 2009 edition of the Minneapolis Star/Tribune says that the big fish will be repaired. Gary Kirt, owner of Minneapolis-based Bell Mortgage, who grew up in Bena, will be footing the bill for the restoration. The owners, Paul and Linda Reimers, along with his carpenter brother-in-law, have been doing the necessary carpentry work. Kirt is trying to find local painters from Red Lake to complete the job, expected to be finished in the next few weeks.[Mary Wilson, 09/14/2009]
