I've ordered a Jackson Kayak, Kracken. This will be my first kayak and I was just wondering what you guys think of it? I plan on fishing the gulf off of Destin and the Choctawhatchee Bay area. Can't wait for it to arrive, and the weather warm up.
I wasn't very impressed with the way it paddled. It was slow and took a lot effort to get it moving. The second you quit paddling the boat comes to a complete stop. The Cuda 14 is the better paddling boat from Jackson. If you are looking for a better offshore boat like the Kraken, look at the Wilderness Systems Thresher.
