Where did lake bagging come from?

Adventurers have been lake bagging since the dawn of time. However, it did not become a mainstream trend until 2020.

The surge in popularity was partially due to covid physical distancing outdoors and avoiding crowds at more popular bodies of water. Also, as GPS and mobile technology have advanced and become more widely available, more lake baggers have taken up the challenge to venture to new and lesser-known lakes.
