WHAT: THE DEBUT OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST FISHING LURE WHERE: Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, Destin Florida At the SS Spitfire Mercantire in the Baytowne Marina WHEN: Tomorrow Wednesday, August 10 at 10 a.m. CT (11 a.m. ET)
DESTIN, FL, Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Tomorrow will mark the debut of the World's Largest Fishing Lure, standing more than 12 feet tall and weighing more than 355 pounds, a new world's record.
The home of this giant lure is Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, at SS Spitfire Mercantile in the resort's Baytowne Marina, near Destin FL, an area known as the World's Luckiest Fishing Village.
Scheduled to be authenticated by Guinness World's Records, the World's Largest Fishing Lure is 24 times the size of the actual lure it was modeled after. The original lure is a handmade lure made by local legend David Partridge, owner of "Flatliner Lures."
For years, people young and old have hovered over tackle boxes, admiring the prettiest lure in the collection. Now, you don't have to be a fishing enthusiast to appreciate this World's Largest Fishing Lure, touch it, stand along side it and take a picture. As one young admirer said, "It's awesome!"
The new World's Largest Fishing Lure adorns its title with its pink dotted side, silver back, colorful orange bottom and three sets of treble hooks. It even has a drink named after it, which is available at Sandestin's Baytowne Marina, where crowds visit resident parrots Gilligan and Maryann, and celebrate sunset each day with the ringing of the bell and blowing of the cannon.
