ICAST 2015 - Jackson Kayak Skipper

Kayak Make & Model

Brand:
Jackson Kayak
Model:
Skipper
MSRP ($):
999.00
Length (ft):
9.5

Kids who love to join their parents out on the water have traditionally had to put up with kayaks that are cumbersome, slow and hard to paddle because they are actually meant for adults. Thanks to the Skipper from Jackson Kayak, this is no longer an issue as it is a fishing kayak that is specifically designed for the younger generation.

To make it easier for kids the Skipper features a narrow hull, so it can easily keep up with bigger kayaks without tiring out the paddler. The platform of the Skipper is also stable enough that it can be used for standing while casting, which means kids can emulate their parents and learn from their techniques. The Skipper emulates the features of the larger Jackson Kayak offerings, so it has hi/lo seat that is just the right size for kids, but still comfortable and complete with tackle storage. Other features include internal rod storage options, molded in center Nalgene holder, one RAM track mount for accessories, rear flush mount rod holders, rear tankwell storage and a large front hatch. The Skipper also has a replaceable skid plate and thanks to its unique deck rigging as well as tether clips it can also be towed if ever required. The 50 to 125 lb weight range of the Skipper makes it ideal for kids, teens as well as some adults who prefer smaller, more nimble kayaks. Any parents who still take out their kids in tandem kayak models should definitely consider giving their young anglers the freedom of their own kayak and the Skipper is one of the best ways to do so.
