Walleye Madness at Midnight

  • December 31, 2016 - December 31, 2016
Event - Walleye Madness at Midnight

Ring in the coming New Year in Port Clinton with a 20-foot, 600-pound fiberglass walleye at the "Madness at
Midnight" Walleye Drop
. Located 80 miles outside of Cleveland, the town of Port Clinton is home to a hearty population of walleye from Lake Erie waters nearby. To celebrate, the town uses a massive crane to lower a fiberglass walleye replica, approximately 30 times larger than the average walleye, at the stroke of midnight. Enjoy locally prepared specialties such as walleye chowder, walleye sandwiches, walleye cinnamon chips, and even walleye popcorn. Mon Ami, a local winery, has even created a "Walleye White" wine to honor the city's walleye reputation.
