Last month, Jeff Kolodzinski broke the World Record for Most Fish Caught in 24 Hours, managing to reel in 2,270 catches within the set 24 hour time frame, as ascribed by Guinness.
Beating the previous Guinness World Record for Most Fish Caught in 24 Hours by more than 100 catches, Kolodzinski’s title is one that isn’t just about being a title holder fisher, but also tuned to support Fishing For Life, an outreach program designed to develop proactive and positive lifestyle choices to youths though fishing.
With the record made during the course of Fishing For Life’s Fish-A-Thon, Kolodzinski now holds what many consider to be one of the more interesting world records ever to be. Kolo, as Kolodzinski is popularly referred to, is known for his endeavors in breaking the said Most Fish Caught in 24 Hours World Record in the past.
Though a casual observer would be quick to brand Kolo as a “fishing nut”, Kolo’s active participation in Fish For Life organized events prove that the is more than just a competitive fisher with a chip on his shoulder, a fisher who is serious in the positive impact the craft of fishing has in molding youths to a better frame of mind when it comes to making life altering decisions.
With Kolo’s recent record, his standing as Fish For Life’s spokesperson is now backed with an international title that stands to be distinct and unique in itself.
Fishing For Life’s Fish-A-Thon is not related to the Recycled Fish 24 Hour Fish-A-Thon, with that event being organized by a different organization altogether.
