Kayak anglers were migrating at two distinct times in the year, once in early spring around Presidents Day and a second migration in fall during Columbus Day. The reason for these mysterious migrations have stumped the scientific community since the initial discovery. The scientists unable to pinpoint the cause or trigger of what some have called “a wasteful or impractical activity” have dubbed these events "Boondoggles".
Scientists have recently captured some of these migrating kayak fishermen with the hopes of shedding some light on the infamous “Boondoggles”. Here are some excerpts from their interviews with the Boondogglers. Names have been changed to protect their identities.
Subject 1 aka A Good Forward Cast:
- Scientist: Why do you Boondoggle?
- A Good Forward Cast: No man it’s not about the fishing, it’s about becoming one with your surroundings and becoming entrenched in the spirituality of the, have you tried Quinoa?
Subject 2 aka Bluefish Chucky:
- Scientist: What makes you travel all this distance to meet up with so many strangers?
- Bluefish Chucky: It’s all about the face to face man hugs; you have to look into their eyes when you embrace.
Subject 3 aka Launching Crew:
- Scientist: Have you experienced many hardships while on these migrations?
- Launching Crew: Sunscreen, have to remember the sunscreen.. Croc farmer burns, sunscreen!
Subject 4 aka Tree Hate:
- Scientist: Help us understand these migrations, what is the trigger?
- Tree Hater: Boondoggle, yeah man they are totally sweet. Hey check out my mini rod.
Subject 5 aka Chadley son of Tree Hater:
- Scientist: Tell us about the first Boondoggle at Little Talbot Island?
- Chadley son of Tree Hater: I just can't do it, I'm just a 12 year old boy!
As you can see by the random often confusing answers the “Boondogglers” gave the researchers, they are either extremely smart, speaking in cryptic riddles and code or they have absolutely no idea why the heck they do it. Hopefully further research will shed some light on why the Boondogglers Boondoggle, and what the Boondogglers are Boondoggling.
Want to research these mysterious migrations for yourself? Scientists believe the next Boondoggle is just around the corner and the next migratory target will be Virginia Beach, Virginia around Columbus Day. Take a trip to First Landing State Park and watch these majestic creatures in their native habitat.
