The Jackson Kayak company has launched a glow-in-the-dark fishing kayak series.
Called the Illuminati, the kayaks in the new fleet can be charged on any light source and will glow for hours after dark.
The series was launched at Jackson’s annual dealer summit in Rock Island, Tennessee, with President Eric Jackson doing the unveiling.
The new kayaks have been developed for both convenience and for plain ‘wow’ factor. The Illuminati can be seen from a great distance, says Jackson, and allows for gear to be viewed on the deck after dark, making it very useful when fishing for species that feed at dusk and beyond.
While auxiliary lighting is still required to meet regulations, the Illuminati also adds additional visibility that can be an extra safety factor after dark.
“We developed this colour option for those late night cruises, for those who find themselves in the middle of the river or lake after dark, finding gear on a luminescent deck, for those traveling on overnights and in open seas where being seen by buddies is key,” said Marketing Director James McBeath. “But mostly we find it simply the coolest thing on water after dark.”
Jackson fishing guru, Drew Gregory, describes the Illuminati as “a surreal experience on the water.”
“But that cool factor is not the only reason we feel it will be a difference maker with anglers,” he adds. “There are many functional uses, including better visibility to others, enough glow light to do most tasks without the use of a head lamp and if you drop any lights inside the translucent hull it beams like Casper to draw in those bait fish”
The Illuminati kayak series comprises the Coosa, Cuda 12, Cuda 14 and the Big Tuna. They are available at all of Jackson Kayak’s fishing dealers.
