Must see if you're in the area

Right near the marina of Baytowne, with lots of great activities around. Easy to spot. Great photo opportunity.

I had no idea that this was an "attraction" at the Village of Baytowne Wharf! We visited several times, to get bikes and kayaks but thought nothing of this. We did take a picture next to it once!

If you are visiting Baytown, the Wharf, etc then you might want to catch a quick glance of the lure. This itself is not a destination but maybe an interesting passing moment.

Not sure what the draw is, to be honest. We came to the area of Baytowne, which was great, but the lure itself was rusted and anticlimactic. Something to glance at as you head towards the much more engaging views of the bay and the treehouse walk to the Villages area.

My girls and I searched high and low for this bad boy. the staff was incredibly friendly and led us right to it! This whole facility is quite an adventure itself. I highly recommend it!

My kids and Dad had a great time. This thing is huge! Kids also enjoyed the Panning for Treasures with the grandparents.

Somewhat of a touristy thing to do (but then, what isn't in Sandestin), but if you're hanging around the area you might as well go see it! There is a nice place to have your picture taken with the lure and the Marina and Warf area are a lot of fun. As a side note, come here around sunset for... More
