Visitor Tips and News About Wylie Walleye at Walleye Capital of the World
Walleye Capital of the World
Wylie Walleye is now in the parking lot of America's Best Value Inn. I spoke with an employee at the front desk and was told Wylie belongs to the motel owner and that this is usually where he can be found. He is on a trailer, so he does get moved occasionally, but this is where he will be most of the time. It appears that his eyes light up. He is almost as ferocious-looking as the shark at Mike's Taxidermy.[signmanjoe, 05/23/2015]
We drove around town for 20 minutes. Finally asked a police officer in town where Walleye on trailer was hiding. Said he might be in storage. Bummed, but nice little fishing town to visit.[Amy, 07/14/2014]
Wylie Walleye Statue
Port Clinton persists with its claim as Walleye Capital of the World. They moved the walleye statue -- Wylie Walleye -- to 163 and Adams. It's worth taking a look at, and right off Lake Erie.[Mari, 05/13/2011]
