News on Fishing

Nicky Quiles
Fishing Record

La Grange resident, John Wilkins, fished for twenty-four hours this past weekend catching over two thousand fish. Starting Friday morning, by Saturday he had caught 2,011 fish — just 638 shy of the 2011 record set by Jeff Kolodzinski of Minnesota.
Wilkins trained for six months to try and beat the record. Although he failed to reach it he seems optimistic, saying he plans to turn his record attempt into an annual event with a mini-marathon for kids.
