Jackson Kayak, has introduced the Bite fishing kayak, which is expected to retail for $799. The company says with the trend in price-point fishing kayaks tending towards compromise in hull quality, performance, gear management, and comfort the new Bite fishing kayak doesn’t cut corners. The Bite kayak is expected to be available sometime in December (18′) just in time for X-mas.
With an impressive 11’3″ hull and 35″ in width, the Bite performs to the paddle-ability and stand-ability standards anglers are used to in a Jackson Kayak, the company says. The kayak weighs in at an estimated 68 lbs w/seat, which makes the Bite easy to manage in and out of the water.
Jackson Kayak says the Bite’s comfort was not skimped on either with the addition of a brand new trim-able framed seating set up and plenty of room to stand comfortably. The new open concept deck has been long awaited from Jackson giving the paddler ample storage space fore and aft of the kayak, supported by a system of touring-style bungee cords. The deck will feature numerous storage placeholders for standard sized tackle boxes. Jackson Kayak has also included their popular flush mounted rod holders, as well as recessed cup holders, gear tracks on both sides, adjustable foot braces and a newly developed hog trough recess to make the Bite a full-featured kayak.
