Every town has its quirky attractions, and Sandestin delivers its own with the World’s Largest Fishing Lure. Standing at ten and a half feet tall and weighing in at 355 pounds, this is no ordinary lure. It was declared the World’s Largest Fishing
Lure by Guinness World Records in 2011.
World’s Largest Fishing s Unique Sandestin Attraction
Creator David Partridge and Mark Davis teamed up and took ten months to design and create this masterpiece, modeled after a lure used to hook both saltwater redfish and freshwater bass. The lure now sits at the S.S. Spitfire Mercantile, the bait shop located at the Baytowne Marina in Sandestin. It has become a popular spot to pause and snap a photo. The lure features a pink dotted side, silver back, colorful orange bottom, and three sets of treble hooks.
The purpose behind creating the lure was to draw attention to the beautiful area and its standing as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” Known for its charming Choctawhatchee Bay and quick access to deep water, this area is a major attraction for serious fishermen. Make this your getaway for a casual weekend of fishing or attend one of the popular fishing events held here, such as the Fishing Rodeo held each October or the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic, hosted each June and ranked one of the top 10 billfish tournaments in the world.

, it’s an interesting attraction to stop by if you’re in the area. Pick up some bait and tackle at the S.S. Spitfire Mercantile on your way out on the water and pause to admire the lure!
