The Jackson Kayak Cruise 12 Angler, similar to it’s little brother the Cruise 10 Angler, fills a variety of niches. The 12 is better suited for anglers that want/need more speed and better tracking than the 10 ft version can offer. It is also better suited for anglers that need a higher weight capacity than the 10. The Cruise 12 Angler is simply a great price point kayak for someone looking to get into kayak fishing without all the bells and whistles, but still wants enough features to make your time on the water enjoyable. It is also a great platform for an avid angler who is looking for a small versatile kayak with a minimalistic approach. The Cruise Angler 12 is perfect for fishing small to large rivers with small rapids but also tracks plenty well and carries enough speed for a jaunt on a bigger lake or inshore saltwater. With it’s stable platform, most also find it fairly easy to stand and fish in for those times when standing is necessary.
