Favorite thing: I have never heard of this, but seeing it was pretty cool. New York drops the big apple, Port Clinton drops the Big Wylie Walleye. You thinking what?! LOL, for the past 14 years, Port Clinton being the "Walleye Capital of the World," so they drop on New Year's Eve drop a 20-foot, 600-pound walleye from the sky at the stroke of Midnight. It was created by Jim Wendt of Jim's Taxidermy. This event happens every New Years on Perry Street in historical downtown Port Clinton. For more info: Wylie Walleye
