2011 saw the emergence of the YakAngler/Kayak Fishing Radio “Boondoggle”, with the Presidents Day Boondoggle in Jacksonville, FL and the Columbus Day Boondoggle in Charleston, SC. Expect to see three or four Boondoggles in 2012, with the second annual Presidents Day Boondoggle being held in Chokoloskee, FL February 17-20.
We teamed up with Kayak Fishing Radio in 2011 to produce the first annual “Kayak Anglers Choice Awards”. This was the first time anyone had attempted to rally kayak anglers across the spectrum for an unbiased look at the top products and anglers in our industry.
YakAngler also produced its first digital publication. Yes, I know - it was only a small six-page spread, but the “Christmas Wish List” gave us huge insight on how much effort goes into producing digital or print media. Keep your eyes out for more eZines in 2012.
The success YakAngler has experienced is a direct reflection of our dedicated community, aka the YA Nation, and our hard-working staff. We couldn’t do it without you folks! I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful New Year, and we’ll see you in 2012!
