But Kolodzinski is not doing it for a spot in the record books.

Fishing For Life

He’s doing it to introduce people and families to fishing and to increase awareness and financial support for Fishing For Life, a non-profit, charitable organization whose Next GEN program finds mentors for children of families in need

After a day of checking out Sankoty Lakes Resort & Retreat and sneaking back over to the Giant Goose Ranch, Jeff & Teeg sat down on the dock to reflect on what's ahad for this year's Marathon Man Fishing Event. What we know: it's gonna be good. A whole new location this year, the debut of a a world-class destination at Sankoty Lakes. A whole new format, thank to the team at OutdoorsFIRST Media with cameo appearances from friends across the country. A world record? We'll see … but we have our sights set on a fundraising record of $20,000 in 2020 to help military families through outdoor experiences with Fishing For Life mentors. September 9 & 10 the 24 hour fishing marathon will stream live here on Facebook, and we hope you'll be a part of this year's world record attempt!
