The first kayak fishing boondoggle was held on February 18th 2011 in Jacksonville Florida. The popular four-day weekend kayak fishing event was a joint venture of YakAngler.com and KayakFishingRadio.com offering kayak anglers a chance to meet new people, paddle new locations, and hang out and fish with kayak fishermen from around the country. Recently the Boondoggle events have become too large for part time side ventures of YakAngler and KayakFishingRadio, so a new company was created Boondoggle LLC.
There are currently two primary boondoggles, one on Presidents Day weekend and the second on Columbus Day weekend. The events are held on federal holiday three day weekends allowing many participants to not have to take leave from work.
