Minnesota Angler Catches 2,649 Fish in 24 Hours, Breaks World Record (Again)
August 02, 2011
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.
MyFoxtwincities.com is reporting that the Minnesota angler set out to break the record he set last year to raise money and awareness for the nonprofit organization Fishing for Life.
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.
