Fisherman's Statue - Gig Harbor, Washington

Just to show that it isn't always foggy in Gig Harbor

In the historic district of Gig Harbor, Washington along the harbor itself you’ll find Jerisich Park and the adjacent Skansie Brothers Park. The area is a large, open, waterfront space with grass, decks, benches, and a covered Pavilion for community events. Here you will find the Fisherman Memorial. This large bronze statue, which depicts a fisherman hauling in his netted catch, was commissioned in memory of Gig Harbor's fishermen. Gig Harbor has a history of fishing and boat building. The current fishing boats you see moored there most likely fish the waters of Alaska.
