Marathon Man Catches More than 3000 Fish in One Day!

Jeff ‘Kolo’ Kolodzinski is a man on a mission!

We had a great time this weekend watching Marathon Man Jeff Kolodzinski catch a WHOPPING 3,774 fish in 24 hours at the Giant Goose Ranch in Canton, IL. This amazing milestone breaks the previous world record, also held by ‘Kolo’! 

Of note is that he uses inexpensive tackle any beginner can purchase for about $20 and he fishes from shore—no boat required.

The best part, Kolo isn’t just fishing to set new records; he’s raising money for the amazing Fishing For Life NextGEN program. Fishing for Life exists to provide the opportunity to serve kids, families, veterans, and communities through fishing and outdoor programs.

If you missed it and would still like to give, the Givergy site will be open for donations through this Saturday, September 17th until 11:59pm. Please share with your friends!
