Jackson Kayak

The Coosa was designed by Jackson Kayak's design team and professional kayak fisherman Drew Gregory, to answer to the continually evolving needs of the kayak fisherman. 

Aside from excelling in lakes, ponds, inshore and most saltwater settings, the Coosa is the first kayak to ever cater to the river angler... making it the first ever ALL water fishing craft!

The Basics: Stability, durability and specialization to the fisherman's needs are the three answered objectives of the Coosa's unique design. The wider hull design, Stability and Standability, Hi/Lo seat setup, deck arrangement with numerous paddle/rod staging and holding options, and the unique secondary edges designed by World Champion Jackson Kayak engineers make the Coosa the most stable craft on the water. Build with elite plastic molding, as designed for whitewater kayakers, the Coosa can withstand anything an angler can throw at it; Couple that with outstanding and unique fishing features and you have simply the best all round fishing kayak out there.

The Coosa Advantage: The highlights of the Jackson Kayak Coosa:

  • Amazing Kayak Fishing Features tells the tale with the Coosa and will make any angler happy. From the standard rod holders in a variety of positions, to rod stagers all over the Coosa for quick access from any side, to tackle access points around the boat and right under your seat, and to a locking hatch system for storing your gear, rods and camping equipment make this a fully equipped boat for fishing of all sorts.
  • The Anglers Choice is quite easily the Coosa for its logically configured and fishing-minded setup. Advanced features like the facilitation of a recessed drag-chain system, Tallon recesses for mounts that are specialized in utilizing RAM and Scotty accessories, as well as extra stability for those who fish standing up are all features built in for a variety of anglers. We've crafted the length, the hull, superb stability and the Coosa's set up to master all forms of fishing....from fishing the weeds, stalking the flats, hitting rocky shores, sliding by eddy-lines, busting coastal waves to get to offshore spots to mid-lake trolling.
  • The River Kayak Fishing Niche has been completely overlooked for many years in the kayak fishing world. Moving water, narrow flats, bushed-in waterways, oxbow lakes and whitewater are natural feeding grounds for all river fish and most of the action is found in these narrows, stretches and rapids. For generations some of these grounds have been missed simply due to inaccessibility; hidden oxbow lakes from rivers, pools loaded with unfished territory in between rapids and much more. The Coosa's 'creek-style' hull design, secondary stability, whitewater-esq 'rocker' all make for a performing river craft. It turns tight, slips shallow to get over debris, bumps and grinds shallow river beds and punches holes and waves in class IV whitewater... getting you to some of the most untouched fishing grounds on earth!

Go Coosa

Met a Jackson dealer at a lake to test the Coosa and the Cuda. After paddling the two I purchased the coosa. I recently took the Coosa on the New River in Virginia and hit everything from class I to III and never once felt tipsy. The hi/lo seat is perfect for long days in the saddle and the rod stagers and mounts held onto the rods even in heavy rapids. Plenty of storage in the front and rear dry hatches for anything I could ever need to take on extended trips. Was able to put two cell phones, two wallets, and several other items in the dry bag in the day hatch. Couldn't think of a better yak! Primarily use it on local lakes and rivers and it does wonderful on both but it truly excels in the rivers.

Coosa, river perfection

There isn't enough good things I can say about my Coosa. It became my goto yak for all my river, back stream and skinny water fishing. Is this an ocean or big bay yak no way and it was never ment to be, but it is the perfect river and stream yak.
5/5 seating comfort
5/5 stability
5/5 rod stager options
