Big Fish Supper Club, Bena, Minnesota

Located adjacent to Lake Winnibigoshish and a short distance from the north side of Leech Lake, this 65-feet-long (20 meters) open-mouthed muskie offers fishing, dining and accommodation options. It is believed to have been built in 1957 or 1958 and shot to prominence after featuring in the 1983 adventure-comedy “National Lampoon’s Vacation.”
