Jackson Coosa HD Fishing Kayak
The Jackson Coosa HD Fishing Kayak was made for those that prefer to stand in their kayaks to fish. The hull is just slightly larger than other members of the Coosa family, making it the most stable of the line. The floor is matted with a double layer standing mat, which not only is made to keep you comfortable but also to help muffle any noise from you shifting. Jackson added a rod butt stager so you can easily untangle lures or line by placing the butt of the rod in the stager, which means your rod won't take an accidental swim.
The Coosa HD is made to fit everything you may need for a day, or even several, out on the water. The hull storage is open so you can fit camping gear and all your tackle neatly away. The smaller day hatch is perfect for everything you want to keep at hand, such as your phone to snap a picture of that next trophy catch! There is open room for coolers and tackle boxes in the rear tank well, which sits right up against the seat. Comfort is important, so Jackson added Therm-a-Rest lumbar support to the seat, which is also removable and makes for a great pillow! Standing or sitting, the Jackson Coosa HD Fishing Kayak will get you out to those perfect fishing spots!
- Rod Butt Stager
- Two raised areas next to the bow handle were designed as a spot to place your rod butt when needing to untangle rods/lures and keep your rod butt from sliding into the water.
- PowerPole, Micro Anchor ready
- Ergonomic Handles
- Ergonomic Handles with added grip textured inserts help you keep good contact when carrying your kayak, even when wet. Also, there is no fabric to ensure snag-proof days on the water.
- Rod Tip Protector
- Dual Rod Tip Protectors ensure that your delicate rod tips aren’t snagged by a passing tree limb.
- Hypalon Paddle Keeper
- Tuck your paddle blade under this Hypalon keeper to get it out of the way yet still in easy reach – snag-free to avoid treble hook trouble. Resistant to UV damage and temperature extremes, this material will keep your paddle safe and secure.
- Hull Design
- Shaped slightly longer for more speed, plenty of rocker for maneuverability, and a wider hull that creates a much more stable and standing-friendly kayak. The wider hull also creates more standing deck space.
- Hinging Hatches
- The hatches on the Coosa HD are snag-free and easy to access! Hinged hatches fore and aft make the hatches easy to open with a single hand.
- Center Console
- A twist of the knob on the deck frees the hatch and opens to reveal ample storage for small, loose items, including snacks and batteries for your electronics. Small, oval semi-dry day hatch keeps small items in easy reach and isolated. The entire console can be removed with a few twists of a Philips head screwdriver to open additional deck space if desired.
- Omega Rod Holder with Track Mounted LockNLoad Mounting System
- 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 secure the rod by capturing the reel quickly 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.
- Adjustable Ergonomic Foot Pegs
- Making the boat functional for paddlers of all sizes. The footpegs adjust easily and have a soft rubber coating that will keep you comfortable all day.
- Day Hatch
- More storage in easy reach of the paddler, great spot for smaller items like keys, phone, or wallet.*It is always a great idea to keep your important items in a completely waterproof container.
- Metal Gear Tracks
- All tracks have been upgraded to metal from plastic. Located on both sides, in the front and rear of the kayak, the Yakattack gear tracks are built-in to the kayak in easily accessible locations for adding accessories and RAM Mounts.
- Transducer Scupper
- A centrally located over-sized scupper that is large enough to recess transducers for easy installation and protection.
- Two-Layer Standing Pad
- Two-Layered Standing pad. Great for sound dampening and super comfortable for standing and fishing.
- Heavy-duty seat attachment buckle
- Durable and tough attachment that will outlast all the use and abuse you can manage, season after season. Keeps your seat locked in position and makes you feel connected to the kayak.
- Rod Stagers
- Securing rods at arms reach is always an important feature for any fishing kayak. We have easy-access rod securing via our rod staging system shown here. You can clearly see how the bungee holds down your rod butts right at arm's reach.
- Elite Premium Seating System With MOLLE
- Seat Cover, complete with MOLLE compatible webbing on the rear of the seat, and a removable MOLLE panel underneath. 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.

Ratings & Reviews
HD- More stable, better tracking, great seat.
The HD was of great interest to me, as I am a bigger angler (5'10" 235lbs) and a lot of my paddling season is on colder water. I wanted the extra stability and the longer length was nice for speed on windy days. I did find that the redesigned hull did seem to track better on flatwater, than the older version that I had demoed. Although I had done my research on the finer points of this model, it was 'Jackson's' seat that had me looking to this manufacture over others. I can fish all day without any discomfort, hell I just really enjoy sitting in that thing. Love that they are made in the USA.
True Fishing Machine.
