My Reviews

Jackson Kayak "Coosa HD"
"I was able to paddle a prototype of the Coosa HD at the Outdoor retailer show in August. Redesigning Jackson's original fishing kayak I'm sure was no easy task. The first Coosa was a very popular kayak and one of my favorites. It was the first Jackson I owned and that first Coosa I just recently sold. The original Coosa was purpose built to excel on the moving waters of rivers, streams, and creeks. Because of the priority..."
Jackson Kayak "Kraken"
"I was able to demo the Kraken prototype at the Outdoor Retailer event in August. As expected from a boat of these dimensions it accelerated very well, was easy to keep moving at an estimated 4 knots (Cell phone app) and a great glide. The demo was on a lake but I was able to put the bow through a boat wake and the flared bow performed well by lifting the kayak while slicing through it. It has a fairly..."
Jackson Kayak “Big Tuna”
"I've owned 2 Jackson Big Tunas and they are some of my favorite kayaks. With plenty of room for 2 adults but still paddles great as a solo you can easily customize it to fit you individual needs. I have used it in all conditions from small ponds to off shore. The kayak is not a speedster but it can be paddled at a steady rate easily as a solo kayak and I have covered over 12 miles in a..."
TFO "Gary's Signature Series" Travel Rod
"As an angler that gets to fly around the country for work, I am always on the lookout for new high performance travel rods. Since airlines charge ridiculous amounts of money for full size rod cases, plus not trusting rods to the baggage handlers having a rod that breaks down to fit in a 32” tube to carry-on proves to be invaluable. Some of you out there probably swear by single piece rods but those of you..."
Penn "Spinfisher V"
"Between my Grandfather and I, I think we have now owned all 5 generations of Penn's Spinfisher. While the quality of some of the Penn lineup may have fallen off par over the last decade or so, they have righted the ship over the last few years and the Spinfisher V shows what the company is capable of. I purchased a 4500 model to use for stripers. On opening the box you can feel how solid the reel is...."
Penn "Fierce"
"Last winter, I was looking for an inexpensive spinning reel for chasing Stripers on the kayak. By inexpensive, I in no way mean cheap. These reels would be expected to stand up to large fish and salt water fishing from a kayak for at least a few seasons. To fit my requirements, they would need to have a smooth enough drag so the fish can turn and run without pulling hooks, but be stout enough to keep the fish from..."
