Violet Sky at the Big Bass Capital of the World, Eufaula, Alabama

Located on the banks of Lake Eufaula, the city of Eufaula, Alabama is known to be home of the Big Bass Capital of the World. The lake is loved by anglers who traverse the over 45,000 acre lake in search of the best fishing spots. This statue was placed in 2018 as a symbol of the large bass that have been caught in the nearby lake. It stands 12 feet tall from the base to the top.

The statue was made in nearby Dothan, Alabama with funds from an Alabama Department of Tourism grant. The tall fish atop of the statue has been named “Manny”. The name “Manny” comes from the local fishing legend, Tom Mann, who was native to Eufaula and a world famous televised angler. The purpose of the statue was to not only honor Tom Mann, but also the many other anglers that flock to Eufaula each year to try their luck at catching a huge bass.

The statue is free to visit and is located just off from Broad Street between Livingston and Forsyth Avenue near downtown Eufaula.

Thanks for reading and as always, keep on truckin’!

  1. I’ll have to tell my brother about this! He is a fisherman through and through. Always has been, even when he was a little boy. Thanks for your post, and enjoy your day!
