The Golden Isles Boondoggle

Written by

The dates for the 2014 Presidents Day Boondoggle included Valentine’s Day, so many anglers had to convince wives, significant others, and girlfriends to allow them to head to the Crooked River Boondoggle in Georgia’s Golden Isles. Marian understands my enjoyment of fishing and she tries really hard to enjoy it, too. She really enjoys kayaking and birding, so after 3-4 hours of fishing Marian will just sit in the marsh to read and maybe see a new bird species.

Big Lagoon Boondoggle

Written by

The Columbus Day 2013 Boondoggle™ took place at Big Lagoon State Park near Perdido Key, FL. This was the first time that an event of this size locked down a state park where 350 plus kayak anglers were the only residents for three days. Also impressive was the level of organization KFR and YakAngler with an agenda of workshops on paddling strokes, tactical approach to fishing, fishing beyond the breakers, fly fishing, a video clinic, kayak safety, and proper catch and release techniques.

From more than a dozen states, kayak anglers, exhibitors, and interested newcomers to the sport of kayak fishing converged on Big Lagoon State Park in Pensacola, FL for the Kayak Fishing Boondoggle™. Held over Columbus Day weekend, the “sixth in the series” kayaking, camping and fishing event - better known as “The Boondoggle™” - is a biannual event that provides kayak fishing enthusiasts the opportunity to relax, hangout, and fish with like-minded individuals in a new location.
