The October Boondoggle combines kayak fishing with vendor displays and demonstrations, adds a fun zone for the kids, and all comes together for a weekend of family-friendly adventure for everyone. Kayak anglers converge from all over the Southeast – and as far away as New England and the West Coast – to share good fishing and great fellowship.
The Vendor Village exhibits will open Friday afternoon at 2pm, followed by the evening dinner and Meet & Greet. Everyone will gather for what has become a Boondoggle tradition: a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors with Native Watercraft’s Woody Calloway, where every registered attendee will have a chance to walk away with an Ultimate 12FX.
The exhibits will open again Saturday between 2pm and 9pm, and educational demonstrations and workshops are scheduled throughout the day. Saturday night brings a catered BBQ dinner, followed by the door prize giveaway and raffle of products ranging from kayaks to gear and accessories.
While most of the “scheduled” activities take place Friday and Saturday, many Boondogglers arrive on Thursday and stay until Monday in order to make the most of the holiday weekend. The organizers choose locations for the Kayak Fishing Boondoggle™ for their fish, fishing, and overall quality of the stay. “The Boondoggle provides an escape for kayak fishing enthusiasts to relax, hang out, and fish with like-minded individuals in new locations,” said Adam Hayes of YakAngler.com. “First-time attendees are welcomed in and have a great time. It’s pretty amazing. We come from different states, but we’re like one big, happy family!”
