We spotted the fish in a yard, as it awaits repairs. It would really be nice to see it on display.

The fish was blown over in a storm six years ago. Big fish repair experts must be hard to snare.

High wilds blew the fish over this winter. It was broken and has been put in storage awaiting repairs.

Spotted August 2014. A sad looking fish stands alone since his business was razed.....

Seems like a town where an out-of-context fish statue might be tolerated by surrounding businesses. It just has to survive the weather.
