Where would I look to find a 55 or 60 cu ft helium tank?

    I'd like to get a more permanent solution to filling helium balloons for kite fishing and would like to know if I could use a dive tank, or would I need to buy a helium-specific tank.

    Where would I look to buy one? I would suppose AL would be better than a steel dive tank, eh?

    Also, where would I look to get one filled?

    Welding supply shop.  You would probably need to put a new valve onto the dive tank.  A supply can sell/rent you a tank, and tell you if you can modify your scuba tank.
