With the trend in price point fishing kayaks tending towards compromise in hull quality, performance, gear management, and comfort, Jackson Kayak’s Bite Angler doesn’t cut corners.
The Bite performs to the high bar of paddling and stand-to-fish standards associated with the Jackson Kayak name. New for 2021, the Bite Angler has been upgraded to the Comfort Seat, which is the perfect combination of breathability, drainage and comfort in a framed seat not traditionally found on price point kayaks.
The open-concept deck gives the angler one of our roomiest platforms to stand and fish. Ample storage fore and aft, paired with our updated bungee attachment system which prevents water from seeping into the hull, means there is plenty of storage space.
Four recessed areas on either side of the Bite Angler make quick, easy and secure storage for tackle boxes. Also included are flush mount rod holders and cup holders on both sides of the Comfort Seat.
Four molded-in inserts on the stern of the kayak will accept our newly developed Accessory Mounting Bracket, designed to accommodate accessories with the four bolt mounting pattern such as a PowerPole or Torqeedo trolling motor.
The Bite Angler is the perfect combination of comfort, smart and innovative design offered as a great value for anglers. Its at home across a diverse variety of waterways including small lakes and rivers, ponds, streams and inshore saltwater.
Features may include:Cup Holder
- You asked – we’ve got it! Cup holder on either side of the seat is convenient for a Nalgene bottle, tumbler…. or those lures you’d rather not have rattling around your feet.

- Large, open front bow deck for storage and packing of gear in dry bags give the Bite tons of packability for extended expeditions.
