Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to put my Desert Camo Jackson Kayak Big Rig through its paces fishing Lake Travers and a portion of the Petawawa River in beautiful Algonquin Park, Ontario, Canada looking for Musky.

The adventure was 5 days long so I needed to bring with me my fishing gear, clothes and camping gear for the duration of the trip and, believe me, I was able to fit everything inside the hull and then some.


Let me tell you something:  this is the most comparable setup to a bass boat.  And I mean this from a stability point of view.  You can stand up on this kayak and it feels just like you’re fishing off a casting deck.

At 6’3″ tall -having an off center of balance- I feel as secure fishing from my Big Rig as I did when I used to fish tournaments from my old 20′ bass boat.  I can even stand up on the elite seat in the Hi position, in high current, anchored with my 8′ ParknPole from YakAttack.



Paddling this boat is such a joy.  I like the fact that you start a bit slow, but once you gain momentum, the Big Rig just glides through water.  It is by no means a fast boat, but a sturdy stable and a head-turning boat.

Hurry in to your local JK dealer and ask for a demo ride on the Big Rig.  You won’t regret it!


See you on the water!

Tight lines y’all!
