PORT CLINTON

Wylie the Walleye won’t hit the national spotlight this New Year’s Eve.

NBC planned to televise the Walleye Drop bash on live network television, but a budget cut at NBC New York dropped the plan.

“I was initially crushed to hear NBC wasn’t coming,” said Walleye Drop committee chairman Mike Snider in a news release. “Then I relized we’ve been doing this for 13 years and all that time we’ve never had national TV and we still put on one heck of an exciting event.”
