At the 2010 Outdoor Retailers show Jackson Kayak introduced their new kayak fishing kayak.  The Coosa Elite, a kayak inspired by Pro Angler Drew Gregory.  This is one of the first kayaks in kayak fishing that is designed specifically for river fishing.

 

Coosa Elite Features:

• Two molded compartments below the seat that fit two Plano style boxes.
• Roomy Rod Locker.
• A replaceable skid plate.

• Stern V-Channel for drag chains and anchors.

I bought one in May, selling it now. Too slow, pushed around by the wind too much. I have purchased an ole tarpon 120 and love it.
