2017 Jackson Coosa
2017 Jackson Coosa
The Coosa is the answer to the evolving needs of the river and small water kayak fisherman. It’s 11’2” length and rockered hull make it the most sporty and nimble Jackson Kayak to best handle those smaller waters and especially wild rivers and creeks. It’s a signature series design of one of the original “river bassers,” Drew Gregory, who also founded the River Bassin Tournament Trail and is the host of the new adventure show Hooked on Wild Waters.
Aside from the hull being river friendly, the open deck layout keeps things simple and your gear easy to reach when the river forces quick decisions. When you reach smoother waters feel free to stand and fish from the Coosa, which boasts solid standability. However, with the new hi/lo elite seat 2.0 included standard on the Coosa you may find yourself seated quite often as well; the seat offers new ergonomic design, breathable and quick dry material, Thermarest lumbar support, underside Plano pockets (waterproof boxes included), rear pocket, and is fully adjustable and removable for the times when you find the perfect spot to take a break on shore.
1 - Hull Design
The Coosa was designed with a wide and stable standing area, so that anglers would be able to stand and fish easily. The hull was designed for stability and maneuverability, which excels in moving waters. There is a secondary stability on this kayak that allows you to lean without tipping, again great for maneuverability. The Coosa is great for rivers, streams, ponds, and small lakes.
