Jackson Kayaks Big Rig FD 13/3 Kayak Review
The Big Rig FD 13/3 is one of a Jackson Kayak’s most popular fishing kayaks and is new to our shop for the 2019 season!
Recently upgraded with a few design refinements and additional features, the Big Rig FD comes stocked with Jackson’s innovative Flex Drive pedal system. What’s even better is that it is also compatible with their E-Drive trolling motor so you’re able to interchange the units whenever you want.
With forward and reverse capabilities, the Flex Drive’s unique design features an articulated shaft that protects the prop when paddling in shallow water or near submerged obstacles. The design also provides an easy way to clean away weeds or debris as the hinged prop cover is located directly in front of the seat for easy access. This means you don’t have to remove or raise the Flex Drive in order to clean it, nor do you have to get off the water as it can be done on the fly!

As the name suggests, the Big Rig offers a massive platform for unparalleled stability allowing you to stand and cast or simply to get up and stretch your legs. The keel has been elongated to improve the tracking and efficiency when paddling, pedaling, or motoring all while retaining the user-friendliness the kayak is known for.
An incredible amount of storage is provided with the rod troughs widened on either side and the tip protectors being increased from two to four. Tank wells both bow and stern are complete with hinged covers, while the bow includes a hatch bin to prevent items from rolling to the back of the boat while you’re on the water. Given the hollow, sit-on-top nature of the Big Rig FD, storage is also offered throughout the whole boat for overnight adventures or fishing tournaments.
A hand-controlled rudder system comes standard on the Big Rig FD and is integrated into the hull for a seamless finish. When utilizing the E-Drive, the rudder controls are swapped to the foot pegs giving paddlers a completely hands-free experience while motoring along or trolling.
