Introducing the Big Rig FD! One of Jackson Kayak's most popular fishing kayaks now gets the upgrades of both its HD predecessors, the Coosa HD and Cuda HD with the addition of Flex Drive pedaling power. The FD will be compatible with the upcoming E-Drive motor giving users a truly hands-free fishing experience, where the rudder controls return to foot control and our battery will take you anywhere you want to go. Hull size and performance are comparable to the original Big Rig, but features an elongated keel for superior tracking while paddling, pedaling, or motoring.

The FlexDrive system allows forward and reverse, has unique articulation to adapt to shallow water, obstacles, or cleaning, and is removable for true kayak use. The FD version of the Big Rig takes advantage of the past 5 years of HD upgrades with some twists. It features the High Hi-Lo Ergo Seat Frame with MOLLE System, which includes infinite fore-aft trimming. The unique Big Rig rod troughs are doubled up with TWO rod tubes on both sides of the bow. The Big Rig FD's new rod staging system lets you set down and snap up your rods at a moments' notice. Unlike the other models, the rod tubes can also accommodate fly rods up to 9' in length with fly reel geometry behind the seat. Jackson Kayak's use of track systems remain throughout giving you flexibility in setting up for the day of fishing and our hulls are molded for Raymarine and Power-Pole readiness. Storage is upgraded throughout the Big Rig FD with hatches updated to new rotating latches.

  • Improved Front Hatch, Including Hypalon Paddle Blade Keeper
    The new JK hatch now comes with heavy duty latches. Tuck your paddle blade under this Hypalon keeper to get it out of the way but still in arm's reach - snag-free for your treble hooks! Resistant to UV damage and temperature extremes, this material will keep your paddle safe!

  • JK Retractable Casting Brace
    This brace can easily be lifted up to use as a stabilizing point for standing and fishing, and it also has a paddle stager on it so you don’t have to bend over to put your paddle down, really key for sight fishing. Also, the casting brace and be locked down out of the way and completely flush.

  • Four Rod Tip Tube Protectors
    Storage for four rods with extended reach for fly rods as well.

  • PowerPole Micro Anchor Ready
    The Big Rig comes designed to easily add Power-Pole's new Micro Anchor. This perfect pair makes it easy to stand and fish from, as well as giving you the ability to stop quickly and quietly. A true key element to not spooking fish and winning tournaments. The Big Rig also comes with a drag chain chute to use for those that prefer the drag chain, which does great in moving water conditions.

  • Flex Drive System
    Allows for hands-free fishing, forward and reverse, unique articulation to adapt to shallow water and obstacles.

  • Gear Tracks
    Located on both sides and in the front and rear of the kayak, the YakAttack gear tracks are built into the kayak in easily accessible locations for adding accessories and RAM Mounts.

A new custom MOLLE pouch for tackle comes standard (on certain models), and now you can customize both behind and under your seat for tackle and gear management with the myriad of MOLLE compatible attachments readily available on the market. This seat sits higher than our traditional ‘high’ position on other fishing kayaks, improving ergonomics for ease of pedaling.

Multiple modes allow anglers to easily stage rods for quick access or lock them in for maximum security.
