The Jackson Coosa HD Kayak was created to be the ultimate moving water fishing kayak.
Like the Jackson Coosa before it, the HD is the best moving water fishing kayak money can buy. With enhanced focus on still water performance, HD filming capabilities, and technological integration, however, the Jackson Coosa HD takes it several steps further.
After hitting a homerun on their first collaboration, nobody would blame kayak fishing superstar Drew Gregory and Jackson Kayak for resting on their laurels and simply improving a little bit over the original Coosa. Luckily for kayak fishing enthusiasts, they decided to go all-out and improve every aspect they possibly could.
Since Gregory is renowned for filming himself using his GoPro, it isn’t surprising that much of the HD’s new focus is on integration with filming and photography technologies. The HD comes with a wide array of mounts throughout the kayak that allow for easy installation of GoPro and other mountable cameras.
Like all Jackson Kayak’s creations, the HD includes the same high-quality accessories and performance you would expect. The design of the hull and the body, however, has been completely revamped to provide additional functionality. The longer hull gives the HD an even greater edge on moving water, increasing its speed. The body has been made longer and wider, to give kayakers a bit more room to move around and fish in.
The increased speed and stability also means that the HD performs better on flat water than its predecessor did. The improved design also allows for the kayak to track well, another reason it handles flat water better than the original Coosa.
As a true river fishing kayak, the HD has lots of rod holders, room for tackle boxes, improved rod management systems, and integration with tools from manufacturers like Yak Attack, Buck Knives, and Plano. The included removable Coosa Console integrates with fish finders, and comes packed with a hidden line spooling station, water bottle, drink holder, and more. If you want to keep the deck wide open, you can remove it easily to simplify the kayak.
One of the HD’s most exciting new features is the Elite Seat 3.0. The Elite Seat 3.0 comes with a wide assortment of nifty features and options that make fishing on the Jackson Coosa HD Kayak a true joy, whether it’s on flat water, running water, or right on the beach!

Like the Elite Seat 2.0 before it, the brand new Elite 3.0 - coming installed on every single Jackson Coosa HD Kayak - raises the bar on what kayak seating can be.
Every Elite Seat 3.0 comes with the following features:
Adjustable Seating. The ability to move fore (forward) and aft (backward) provides the opportunity to go faster and increase performance. Moving forward will provide greater speed on flatter water, while moving backward will increase handling and balance on running water.

Hi/Lo Seating Options. You can easily adjust your seat, depending on your preference. Moving the seat to Lo allows for greater stability, while adjusting it Hi gives you a better peripheral view and the ability to stand up quicker.
Lumbar Support. A removable pillow provides additional comfort, and can double as a pillow when removed and taken on land.
More Storage. When you set the seat to Hi, there are pockets for tackle boxes and additional room for more tackle boxes under the seat. This leaves the tankwell free to store other, non-tackle items.
