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.
Can be set up as a tandem kayak or solo kayak
Unique “Tuna Tank” livewell (or dry storage) built in
Fantastic stability - perfect for the “big boys” in the solo mode!
Jackson’s new Ergo Seat is an upgrade with all new 3D breathable mesh fabric, improved lumbar support, strengthened supports for hi-low seating, additional storage spots and compatible with the newer track/hi-low systems being built at JK.
The Tuna Tank is a great multiple purpose accessory. It comes with no pre-drilled holes. If used this way, it is an easily accessible 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.
RAM Rod holders
Each kayak includes (2) RAM ¼-20 X .5” Tough Ball (1.5”), RAM 2007 Rod Holder, and a RAM Tube Jr.
32 oz Nalgene / Central Beverage Holder
Each kayak includes a Nalgene 32 ounce wide mouth water bottle. Made in the USA, our custom Nalgene bottles are decked out with Jackson Kayak logos.
Ram and GoPro Inserts
There are molded-in inserts located throughout our fishing boats for GoPro and Ram mounts. They have have been placed in locations that are convenient for use and optimal for GoPro footage or fishing accessories via ram mounts. The Big Tuna comes with one GoPro mount, one Ram 2007 rod holder, and one Ram Tube Jr.
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.
Open hull space that allows for safe storage of fishing rods, camping gear, PFD’s, dry bags, etc. A great way to keep your gear safe when traveling and generous volume allows you to pack enough gear for expedition paddling.
Heavy duty seat attachment buckle
Durable and tough attachment that will outlast all the use and abuse you can manage, season after season. Keeps your seat locked in position and makes you feel connected to the kayak.
Comes pre-rigged for easy rudder installation, if it suits your paddling style.
The perfect complement to the rod stagers. These allow easy stowing of your paddle when you are ready to make that perfect cast, and keeps it from rolling around or blowing away with the wind.
Flush Mount Rod Holders
Easily reachable rod holders for the rear paddler, super secure for targeting larger fish.
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. *It is always a great idea to keep your important items in a completely waterproof/floating container*
A handy strap that is within reach of the seat and that makes standing up and sitting down safe & easy!
Optional closable side pockets
You just can’t have enough storage and these side pockets are perfect spots to stow smaller gear (not included)
