Anyone remember the Hungry Fisherman?





 If you lived in the Birmingham/ Pelham area in the eighties, you might remember the Hungry Fisherman. This old billboard on Hwy 43 is all that is left of it.

  1. hey. I do. Lime soft serve sherbet and a big catfish pond. PreGalleria...They don't have places like that anymore. Cool find. I recently made a stencil of that logo for T-shirts.

  2. I loved that place! Right on the corner of Riverchase Parkway. You could buy catfish food from a gumball type machine and feed them from the pier.

  3. I remember it I used to work there! It was my second job when I was in high school. Whenever I drive by I still look over at the place where it used to stand. There's an office complex now where the restaurant and the man-made fish pond they had used to be. It was a cool place and I had loads of fun working there when I was 16-17. :)

  4. Good hushpuppies. I used to have to waste some hushpuppie material on feeding the fish off the balcony, though. They needed some hushpuppie too.

  5. I remember that place!! They also had paddle boats you could rent to paddle across the pond. I was quite young, so my memory is a bit vague but I clearly remember eating the parsley garnish on everyone's plates. Lol!!!
