Giant Catfish

This giant catfish was once on the sign of Kelly's Katfish Korner, located on Hwy 11 (Pontchartrain Drive) just before the Hwy 11 bridge. I worked there one summer in 1981.

Giant Catfish

A giant catfish wants to be free, on the corner of Bayou Liberty and Nunez Roads.

[Smith, 07/15/2018]

This catfish could be the one that once was perched atop a local seafood restaurant. The restaurant closed and the big fish was apparently moved inland -- fortunately, because the restaurant building was destroyed in 2005 by Hurricane Katrina!
