Illustrator John Pirman admits he expected longtime local landmark Walt's Fish Market, with its reputation for fresh local seafood, to be on the water instead of busy U.S. 41. But once he spotted the big white stuffed shark hanging outside, he was hooked. "The roadside attraction quality of that shark is enough for me to stop and grab some grouper," he says.
