DETAILS

The Jackson Big Tuna Kayak has redefined the category of tandem kayak. Best in class stability and speed. It’s a lot of fun and an amazing multi person fishing kayak.  The Big Tuna comes well equipped with all the bells and whistles you expect from a Jackson Fishing Kayak: molded in rod holders, adjustable foot braces, paddle holders and easily accessible rod storage garage. Add easy access hatches fore and aft and of course Jackson’s legendary adjustable height seat. No more sore knees and back in this Yak! You’ll feel like you’re paddling a Lexus. Adjust the seat height and even orientation on the fly! Arrange the seats easily to face the same direction for forward paddling, or turn both seats outward and everyone gets a front row seat for Hook, Set, Dinner! You can also turn both seats inward to operate the Tuna Tank in the center port. It’s a viewing window, a beverage chiller and Live-bait well all in one: no electronics required! Jackson has added more features! You’ll find multiple GoPro camera mounts that are compatible with Panfish and Ram Accessories too! Easily mount additional rod holders, fish finder and a satellite radio player with waterproof speakers! The Big Tuna is exactly what Jackson says it is: A Big Tuna.

FEATURES

  • Ergo Seat

 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.

  • Tuna Tank

 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.

  • FaceTime seating

Front paddler can face rear paddler. Great for parents!

  • Hull Design

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 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

Includes 1 RAM ¼-20 X .5” Tough Ball (1.5”) and RAM Jr rod holder.

  • 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 been placed in locations that are convenient for use and optimal for GoPro footage or fishing accessories via ram mounts.

  • 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.

  • Hull Storage

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.

  • Rudder Ready

Comes pre-rigged for easy rudder installation, if it suits your paddling style.

  • Paddle holders/stagers

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.

  • Day Hatch

The Day Hatch is a great place to keep your 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*

  • Stand-assist strap

A handy strap that is within reach of the seat and that makes standing up and sitting down safe & easy!

  • 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.

  • Ergonomic Handles

 NEW Ergonomic Handles with added grip textured inserts help you keep good contact when carrying your kayak, even when wet. Also, there is no fabric to ensure snag-proof days on the water.

  YakAttack LevorLoc Anchor Trolley

The first anchor trolley designed specifically for the job, the YakAttack LeverLoc Anchor Trolley features a LeverLoc line clamp, which locks your trolley line in place with a simple “flip of a switch” motion. Keeping the trolley lines in line is the PadHook, a simple but clever design that combines the functionality of both a pad-eye and a hook, keeping even the tightest trolley lines in place on the side of the kayak, not over your gunwale. When not in use, the easy-knot trolley ring snaps into the base of the LeverLoc, quietly secured until deployed. Includes 35’ of USA made 550 paracord with a highly reflective tracer. Features Harken® Pulleys for super smooth operation.

Get your anchor line under control with the SideWinder! Designed to make anchor line management simple and effective, the YakAttack SideWinder has some great features packed into a simple and effective design. The line lock groove keeps just the right amount of line deployed, and the tail rope passage means it can be deployed outside your anchor trolley ring for true quick release in dangerous situations. For flat water with no current, use the track mount holes in conjunction with Mighty Bolts and knobs from YakAttack to attach the SideWinder directly to your kayak's track system.
