Paddle and Trail has landed a Jackson Kayak Big Tuna.
The much anticipated tandem version of the Cuda fishing kayak has landed at Paddle and Trail of Loves Park and Aurora. The Big Tuna is a creature unlike any other on the market, with multiple never before seen features in the kayak fishing world. Leading the charge on these unique elements has to be the ‘Tuna Tank’, a unique bait/live well that requires no plumbing or electronics! It utilizes the water from beneath the boat to circulate into the bait tank keeping fish lively and fresh. The tank also resides in the center of the boat for easy access and management. The possibilities with the Tuna Tank are endless – bring the kids on a trip and have them catch cool creatures and learn about them while in the tank; keep your catch alive to show it off to your friends later before you release it; keep your live bait alive and fresh.
Jackson Kayak also brings the popular elite seats, and new ‘Face time’ seating! Simply rotate the front seat around to face your partner in conversation while drifting some fresh live bait from the Tuna Tank. Guide your friends, children and clients to the fish of a lifetime by controlling the boat from the rear seat while they enjoy the ability to fish without the worry of paddling. Of course, sometimes you can have too much face time and that is why the architects at Jackson Kayak have made the Big Tuna easily convertible and fishable as a solo boat as well.
Other familiar Jackson Kayak features such as paddle holders, stagers, wide standing platform, front day hatch, optional drop down rudder, adjustable foot pegs and a drift chamber for a drag chain or anchor make he Big Tuna an angler’s dream. New features like tackle box stagers, rod tip cover and long load safety flag only make the dream even sweeter! Just like the Tuna fish is a unique, powerful force in the ocean, the Big Tuna will also be a force to be reckoned with in the 2012 sea of fishing kayaks.
