The Big Tuna can be paddled solo or tandem, and the seat design allows anglers to either face forward or each other. The seats utilize Jackson’s “hi-lo” system that allows placement of the seat at various heights for different paddling or fishing situations.
The Big Tuna also comes with a patent-pending bait/live well that requires no plumbing or hardware. Put the boat in the water, and the live well is ready to go. The “Tuna Tank”, as Jackson calls the live well, works by drawing water from beneath the boat. As the kayak moves, water is circulated through the tank keeping your bait a live and active. The Tuna Tank is located in the center of the kayak for easy reach and access.
Drew Gregory and Jackson Kayak are very excited about the launch of their latest fishing vessel. “I can’t tell you how fired up I am to finally have a tandem fishing kayak for myself and our customers,” said Eric Jackson, president of Jackson Kayak and member of the JK fishing team. “This kayak is a game changer for fishermen worldwide.”
The Big Tuna measures 14.1’ long and 35.5” wide. It will hold 575 pounds, and will retail for $1,499 ($1,699 with rudder).
