World's Largest Fishing Lure

Grew up here. The fishing lure is massive. There used to be a hammock in that spot (before they built the lure), with a little sign that read "World's Largest Public Hammock." The bait shack that owns the lure has always used that spot to lure tourists off the road to buy night crawlers. It overlooks the beautiful Choctawhatchee Bay in the small town of Miramar Beach Springs, Florida! [Ben Perdue, 06/07/2016]

Just heads up -- they sent the lure to be cleaned up and repainted and I haven't seen it since. So there is no lure as of mid-March 2016.

The fishing lure has been moved from the tower to its own stand surrounded by documentation placed on plaques. You have to go to Baytowne Marina to see it, which is located within Sandestin.

World's Largest Fishing Lure

Located within gated resort. Tell guard you're going to eat at the Marina Bar and Grill.

That was exactly our plan -- to eat at the Marina Bar and Grill via the giant lure.
