Jeff Kolodzinski is a man on a mission

Spring is coming and so is our annual Fishing For Life Banquet! We are so excited to come back together again and celebrate
all that we have accomplished this past year. This year’s theme is GET CAUGHT! What does that mean to you? To us it is
a chance to Get Caught in the Lord’s work. To Get Caught in bringing people to a love of the outdoors. To Get Caught in
making a difference in the lives of others. To Get Caught in bringing peace to a veteran, and knowledge and opportunity
to our youth.

We would LOVE for you to “Get Caught” with us at our 17th Annual Fundraiser!

– a Marathon Man out to break a record he already holds –

On September 10-11, 2021, seven-time World Championship Team Member Jeff Kolodzinski will fish for 24 hours straight,   September 10th 9:11pm – September 11th 9:11pm at  Sankoty Lakes Resort and Retreat to break a Guinness World Record by catching 2,977 fish — one fish for every life lost on 9/11.

But he’s not fishing against others…


Kolodzinski must catch more than 2 fish per minute for 24 hours straight to break the record. All funds raised go to Fishing For Life in support of their NextGEN program and the local First Responders of Spring Bay, IL.


Physical and mental traumas linger long after returning from the battlefield. The family unit often bears the burdens, which is why we want to surround the family unit with support from mentorship programs and fond memories in the outdoors!





Fishing For Life

To truly show how grateful we are for their sacrifice.

To invest in the lives of others.

To give back.

Together, we can make a difference
