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.

Asking yourself what the difference is between the Bite Angler and the Bite Rec? The Bite Angler includes flush mount rod holders while the Bite Rec does not. You can pick up a deck pad kit for both styles here:

    Bought my Bite three weeks ago from a local dealer. I love it! It's super stable and has been great for fishing. I also bought a "Larry chair" for my 5 year old son. We have enough room for the Larry chair in the front for him to ride with me.

    This thing is stable and the seat is absolutely awesome in comfort. Tracks super well and is a blast to use. The only thing I wish it had was more tracks installed.

    I like this kayak. The open deck lets me mount my Kayak Sailor or there is a place for my large dog. It paddles well and is surprisingly fast for a boat this wide. The only negative is the seat, which has a bar that bites you in the lower back.

    For a first time kayak angler the Bite is a great kayak for me. I love the open deck of the kayak as I enjoy fly fishing. The seat is comfortable. It has a lot of storage capability at the bow and aft tank area.
    The weight of this kayak makes it very easy for me to either car top or put into the bed of the truck.
    It tracks very well for the price and is very stable when I stand and fish from the kayak.

    First off this is a great kayak to just grab and go but it can be customized with all kinds of accessories to really make it your own.
    Comfort: Wide deck area for rods or other gear that finds it way there throughout the day. Molded in cup holders and tackle storage puts necessities in reach. Large tank well on front and back allows you to take a ton of things for fishing or a leisure paddle. I like how everything is on the deck for easy access. The seat is at just the right height.
    Standing: Very stable for me to stand and sight fish or for when I decide to pull out the fly rod. I am a heavier guy at 255 and it is very comfortable to stand.
    Handling: On the river I have no problem navigating the obstacles you can run into on a typical day fishing on the river. On flat water its not gonna win a race but it does track well.
    I have used it for Lakes, rivers, ponds, and even inshore. Accessories I have added for different applications: anchor wizard, command stand and fish finder.
    Final Note: Great all around yak for beginners or a seasoned yak angler that appreciates clean lines and superb function.
