Fisherman Catches 2,645 Fish Within 24 Hours For New Record


Talk about a whole lotta fish! Jeff Kolodzinski, a fisherman known as the Marathon Man, began fishing at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Sankoty resort in Peoria and ended his attempt at 9 a.m. Thursday, after catching 2,645 fish! He unofficially broke his own Guinness World Record of 2,172 fish caught in 24 hours, which he set about a year ago. The record attempt raised money for the Fishing For Life Foundation. Jeff said he is hoping to raise $20,000 for the charity. Check out this video of Jeff attempting to break his old record back in 2018.
