Jackson Cuda 12
Jackson Cuda 12
The Cuda 12 is the most versatile of all the Jackson angler kayaks. It tracks well for fishing on lakes and salt water without a rudder, yet it's nimble enough to run easy rivers too. If you can only have one fishing kayak, the Cuda 12 is the one.
This fishing machine boasts angler friendly features including the rod tip cover, side and rear tackle stagers, rear utility bag, underside Elite Seat pocket/rod butt stager, fly rod stagers, long load safety flag, Stand Assist Handle strap, rear seating position, 26-inch long rectangular center hatch with a fish cooler accessory (sold separately) that is perfect for keeping your catch or your lunch nice and cool! The center hatch insert/bucket is removable for easy access to the interior, making for easy rod storage while on the water. All the popular Jackson angling kayak features are also there, including the rod holders, rear mount rod holders, paddle stagers/holders, Elite Hi/Lo Seat, flat standing platform, removable skid plate, both bow and stern hatches and a beverage holder! The sleek, low profile, design makes fishing in the wind a breeze! The shorter mid-size length still gives anglers good speed and glide while still being able to throw it in the back of a truck.
Note: For SOT kayaks like the Cuda 12 that are under 14' long, we don't recommend the rudder option. On rivers rudders just get in the way and break. On open water a Cuda 12' tracks well enough and handles wind fine without needing to use a rudder.
