Jackson Kayak is teasing their new big water ocean fishing platform, named for a legendary sea beast. The Kraken will be a Jim Sammons signature fish ‘yak, for release in 2014.

In a blog post, Sammons lays out the design priorities. Speed, then stability. Surf capable. High cargo capacity. Ready to fish right from the showroom floor.

“It is still early in the game but we are happy so far. We are still getting great input from the Jackson Kayak team and other kayak anglers from around the world to help make this boat,” Sammons said.
