Product Description

Introducing the 2021 Jackson Big Rig FD


$349 Shipping East of Mississippi



Introducing the Big Rig FD! One of Jackson Kayak's most popular fishing kayaks now gets the upgrades of both its HD predecessors, the Coosa HD and Cuda HD with the addition of Flex Drive pedaling power. The FD will be compatible with the upcoming E-Drive motor giving users a truly hands-free fishing experience, where the rudder controls return to foot control and our battery will take you anywhere you want to go. Hull size and performance are comparable to the original Big Rig, but features an elongated keel for superior tracking while paddling, pedaling, or motoring. The FlexDrive system allows forward and reverse, has unique articulation to adapt to shallow water, obstacles, or cleaning, and is removable for true kayak use. The FD version of the Big Rig takes advantage of the past 5 years of HD upgrades with some twists. It features the High Hi-Lo Ergo Seat Frame with MOLLE System, which includes infinite fore-aft trimming. The unique Big Rig rod troughs are doubled up with TWO rod tubes on both sides of the bow. The Big Rig FD's new rod staging system lets you set down and snap up your rods at a moments' notice. Unlike the other models, the rod tubes can also accommodate fly rods up to 9' in length with fly reel geometry behind the seat. Jackson Kayak's use of track systems remain throughout giving you flexibility in setting up for the day of fishing and our hulls are molded for Raymarine and Power-Pole readiness. Storage is upgraded throughout the Big Rig FD with hatches updated to new rotating latches.

A new custom MOLLE pouch for tackle comes standard (on certain models), and now you can customize both behind and under your seat for tackle and gear management with the myriad of MOLLE compatible attachments readily available on the market. This seat sits higher than our traditional ‘high’ position on other fishing kayaks, improving ergonomics for ease of pedaling.

Unique contours on deck let you set your rods down and make quick adjustments while keeping them close at-hand.

This handy front hatch bin keeps items in your front hatch right where they should be - accessible.

18  - Two-Tiered Rod Stagers

Two of our innovative rod stagers are included with the Big Rig HD/FD, making it easy to secure both rod butts and tips while preventing tangles.

19  - Bigger Rod Trough

The original Big Rig rod trough has received an upgrade! Increased width means more rods can be secured in the trough.

20 - Improved Hull Design

The original Big Rig was a favorite for its stability, but it lacked maneuverability and speed. The Big Rig HD/FD has all this and more included in the updated hull design!
21  - Omega Rod Holder with Track Mounted LockNLoad Mounting System
New for 2019, this truly universal rod staging solution from YakAttack works flawlessly with spinning, casting, larger conventional reels, and yes – even fly rods of all sizes. A 360 degree rotating collar offers the ability to quickly secure the rod by capturing the reel, and allows spinning reels to be stowed in the natural downward position, not hung off the side. Multiple modes allow anglers to easily stage rods for quick access or lock them in for maximum security.

Note: Shipping price is only good for the contiguous United States.


Shipping Note: We usually get your kayak shipped out within 48 hours if we have in stock. We will forward you tracking after your kayak ships.
