“Bring the Camera.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This is a huge catfish sitting on the shore of the Red River of the North on the Breckenridge side of the river. This is a kid magnet. It's a halk block away from the park and close to so many eating places as well as the Wahpeton Zoo. Remember to bring your camera!

“A Fish Story”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is another one of those attractions that are funny and fun to take a picture with. You know the story about Jonah and the Whale? Well this is the Red River version.

“What???”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

It's a photo opportunity not to be missed! As long as you are in the area take a little trip to Fergus Falls to see the largest "Otter"
Once you go-You'll know!

“Nothing Spectacular”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Had to detour off the highway about 10 miles but that wasn't so bad. It was located in a little park area. When we went it was the off season, so no one was there but in the summer it would probably be pretty packed. Bring your camera to take pics. Super short trip. This has been my least favorite world's largest figure. There were no informative signs to tell you details. This was the 3rd world's largest sculpture that I have seen in ND & it was disappointing compared to others. Not that big compared to the others, either.
