Jackson has made a fishing kayak specifically for energetic, lighter weight anglers (aka kids) - the Skipper. We often noticed that kids were kayak fishing in shorter, adult-width kayaks that are really meant for adults. These young anglers find these kayaks slow and hard to paddle, which makes it challenging to keep up with mom or dad. With the Skipper, the hull is designed from the ground up with the youth fisherman in mind, making it narrow enough so they can easily keep up with adults without getting too worn out or frustrated, but with enough range for kids to use and still grow into over time. The Skipper also offers a low deck height and a stable enough platform for standing while casting just like mom and dad do in Jackson’s larger adult focused versions.
