Jackson big tuna

5 posts in this topic

I am thinking of purchasing the Jackson big tuna. I want be able to fish with a pal. I thought about the bass pro shop version of the old crawdad but that would require purchasing a new trailer and I think they are too heavy to be launched an recovered by one person.  I figure the big tuna would give me better flexibility.would be interested in any one here who has the Jackson big tuna and how they like it or don’t.  Thanks Charlie

I have one that I use when my wife wants to fish. Two can definitely fish out of it, much easier for front person. Front room is a little tight. Seats are great. Paddles well for a barge. Does better in creaks marshes than around waves (not a lot of rocker). Not a lot of hull slap.

I paddled it is a single for several years and it handles well. The rudder kit is nice.

Man that’s a heavy yak...

not quite geared for fishing but have you considered the Hurricane Skimmer 140 Tandem? 

 

Drill, rails, and some rivets can make it fish worthy imo...
