Coosa Maiden Voyage

Jackson Coosa hits the water

I finally got a chance to get the Jackson Coosa in the water! At least in the lower part of the state, the ice is gone (Lake Superior is still 63% iced). It was in the 70’s today and I couldn’t pass it up.

I grabbed a fly rod and headed over to Lake Sixteen, a local lake in Lake Orion. It is usually only used by kayaks, canoes, and rowboats – no gas motors.

My report: my kayak stroke is weak, my fly casting was abysmal, I didn’t find any fish, but I was glad for the opportunity to be on the water again.

Any good reports from anybody else?

    1. Great boat! I haven’t fished from it, but follow a lot of the Jackson stuff on social media, and people are really excited about it. Concern I would have is it too big (wide) and nimble enough for some of the smaller, tighter streams? I have done the South Branch from Chase to Smith in my Coosa (my son uses my Native Ultimate) and we had no issues maneuvering through.
