The best fishing boat that...

The best fishing boat that I have ever been in, sits flat tracks true stable to stand in maneuvers well, it also has plenty of dry storage space that will keep 7-foot rods and all of your camp gear. A comfortable multi-position seat a removable center console which I customized to accommodate my battery and sonar there is much more but simply the best boat I have.

I've owned the Jackson ...

I've owned the Jackson Coosa HD for 2 years now. Fish out of it regularly, mostly on small lakes & large ponds. I love the stability and maneuverability of the kayak. The seat is very comfortable & includes the lumbar support & small cooler bag conveniently placed on seat back. I have yet to attempt to fish any rivers, but look to soon. It is all I was looking for in a fishing kayak and more. Plenty of nice accessories for the fisherman. Rod tips are protected in the bow "tusks", drag chain channel in stern and plenty of storage space. Gear tracks, rod stagers, a spooling station console, fish grips, braid cutter and Ram ball rod holder came standard along with a GoPro goose neck & Solar Station ready accessories (which I have not used yet). I have rigged an anchor trolley, zig-zag cleat and added an Engel 19 dry box/cooler with rod holders in the tank well with room to spare for my anchor system and drift sock. It fits & transports easily in my short bed Silverado with my T-Bone bed extender. I use my bicycle tire canoe carrier to load, wheel and launch my kayak. If necessary, there is room behind tank well to store the carrier wheels with bungees. The only complaint I have is the Coosa HD's weight at 85+ pounds. So far I can still handle transport on my own, but it's definitely easier with a fishing buddy' help! All in all, it meets and exceeds my expectations for a fishing kayak. Mike (age 62) New Jersey

I bought my Jackson last...

I bought my Jackson last spring from Higher Pursuits in Columbia TN. Great place to by a Jackson!
This yak is my 3rd and is the best I've owned. I use it on the lakes for fishing and the rivers for relaxing. Best seat in the market and easy to stand in, in my experience two of the most important features for a fishing yak. I could go on and on. The simple fact is this yak is built for fishing by people who understand the needs of a kayak fisherman.

I love this kayak. It is...

I love this kayak. It is very stable, the seat is very comfortable. There is plenty of storage and a lot of places to mount accessories. The transducer well made it super easy to mount and use a depth finder. It is a little on the heavy side but I knew it was before I bought it.

I am new to kayak fishing...

I am new to kayak fishing and have really enjoyed my Jackson Coosa HD. The stability of the boat and comfort of the seat are top notch. The "fishing" features designed into the boat are great and really suited to the serious fisherman.
My only reservation (the reason for my 9 instead of 10) is the weight and it's only a minor issue during loading, as I am an "older" fisherman.
