MINNETONKA, MN — Somebody get ice for Jeff Kolozinski’s elbow as it’s bound to be sore as a result of all the jigging he did in route to catching 2,649 fish in a 24-hour span.
This is the second time Kolozinski — who is a marketing director for the fishing gear manufacturer Frabil – has set out to break this record. Just last year he caught 2,143 fish in a 24-hour span, which was verified by Guinness as a world record.
“We went for the bluegills. They’re smaller — you can catch a bunch of those, as opposed to walleye, musky or pike. So almost all the fish that we caught were bluegills, a few bullheads and a few crappies, but that was really it,” shared Kolozinki.
