The Big Tuna is one of our largest capacity kayaks with the ability to paddle either as a tandem or a solo fishing kayak. It has many different seating positions allowing for traditional tandem positions, ‘facetime’ positions and a good variety of solo positions making it a great platform for fishing of all kinds. Its JK stability, logical accessory positioning, rudder option, and speed make it a serious predator in all water types.
Ergo Seat With MOLLE System
New for 2019 - Jackson’s Ergo Seat now comes complete with MOLLE compatible webbing on the rear of the seat - now you can customize both behind your seat for tackle and gear management with the myriad of MOLLE compatible attachments readily available on the market.
The Tuna Tank is a great multiple purpose accessory. It comes with no pre-drilled holes. If used this way, it is an easily accesible storage tub (not waterproof). If you decide to use it as a bait tank, simply drill a few small holes in the front and back of the tank (drill holes based on the size of the bait). Now water and oxygen will flow freely through it, keeping your bait happy and lively all day.
Front paddler can face rear paddler. Great for parents!
The Big Tuna is about as stable as standing on the ground. It has a wide base, which is great for tandem kayaking, or standing and fishing. Surprising to most people, the Big Tuna also has plenty of speed and is very maneuverable. It has just the right amount of rocker to turn easily, but not too much to where it is considered loose. It tracks very well, and is really just a blast to paddle.
Rod Tip Protector
The Rod Tip Protector is a great way to store your rods when they are not in use or if you are paddling through tight areas like mangrove tunnels. By concealing the rod tips, they won't get snagged on brush or weeds, and helps prevent you from accidentally breaking your rod on the water. You're on your own with ceiling fans and car doors.
Drag Chain Chute
The drag chain is a great way to slow down and fish in moving water. Anyone who has fished a river knows the pain of blowing through a great fishing spot. The drag chain chute allows you to run a drag chain cleanly down your kayak. It keeps it tucked away and free from the rest of your gear.
Comes pre-rigged for easy rudder installation, if it suits your paddling style.
The Day Hatch is a great place to keep you essentials safe. It is big enough to store a small packable jacket, and stays dry enough to store your phone, wallet, keys, and most importantly your snacks. The Day Hatch is quickly and easily accessible, so you can get to a camera quickly to capture those once in a lifetime memories.
Removable skid plate
We protect the biggest wear area on the kayak with the skid plate. Your keel will last season after season with this smart feature.
Adjustable foot pegs
Making the boat functional for paddlers of all sizes. The foot pegs adjust easily.
SealLine Zippered Water Resistant Seat Back Bags
