Standing up is really not a good idea on a kayak esoecially when fishing as the centre of gravity will be way too high

eldorado diago standing in a well made kayak is perfectly fine. Jackson’s are designed to stand in. I’ll stand in mine all day and I’m 6’5. Not a problem

The local rental places use Jacksons. They seem to be very well made. One day I will trade up, but for now I'm making do with a somewhat heavily modified big-box kayak. It gets the job done, but it was painfully uncomfortable until I went to work on it.

If you're on a budget, a Wal-Mart kayak is just fine.

Eric, what's the latest on the Jackson peddle kayak that was demo'd at iCast last summer? I have the 13.5 Kraken and love it, but could use the peddles when the ocean's dragging me up the beach to hold my position.

Nice video glad to see a owner take the time to show off his product I wish I would of not rushed into buying one I bought an ascent fs128t bass pro shops brand in November had i did more research I think i would of went with the big rig it is 4 in wider and definitely looks to be more durable with couple other features I like I'm new to kayak fishing and looking foward to trying it is I will spend some more $ and be looking more into a Jackson when it's all said and done I got what I paid for in the ascend.

Do you need gopro's for kayak fishing? Damn, he has more gopros than fishing reels. lol
Theseustoo Astyages

Only if you want to record the event... and sometimes this is more of a challenge than the actual catching of the fish! (And sometimes means more, too, as in my last video but one, "The One That Got Away", for example; it provides me with EVIDENCE for that story! :D

If you're interested, check out my videos. on my YT channel (My latest one is a 'setup' video.)

As someone who uses just one Go-Pro (usually hat-mounted) I can tell you that there are certain limitations to having only one GP... the batteries are only good for about 2 hours of video or less, so having a spare camera or two is very handy... if expensive!

You see, unless you want to risk missing that one fantastic shot of the expedition by NOT having your video turned on from the moment you start fishing. And then of course, if like me you have only one Go-Pro, you risk having that fantastic shot happen too late in the day... sometimes you just can't win!

Fact is I'm keeping my eyes open for some cheaper kind of video recorder that has at least as much, if not more storage and battery power! Unless Go-Pro would like to sponsor me by donating a free camera or two.... :D
