MINNETONKA, Minn. – A Minnesota man spent 24 consecutive hours fishing off a dock at Maynard’s on Lake Minnetonka, and in that time he was able to net over 2,000 fish and set a new world record.
Jeff Kolodzinski completed the marathon fishing event as part of Fishing for Life, a non-profit organization that exposes kids to the outdoors and creates a sense of community through fishing.
The new record is now 2,649 fish caught in a 24-hour period.
The previous record was set last year at the same spot.
