Walleye Capital

I was happy to see the rendering of a possible view of downtown Port Clinton in The Beacon.  It is exceptional, especially including the downtown and the waterfront as one package.  However, I take exception with “Walleye Capital of the World.”  If we keep using that tag line aren’t we potentially only appealing to a small part of the audience we want to reach?  Why not use a more inclusive tag line like Fish.
