Bite With the trend in price-point fishing kayaks tending towards compromise in hull quality, performance, gear management, and comfort, Jackson Kayak's new Bite doesn't cut corners. With an 11'3" hull designed by Jackson Kayak's top hull design team and at a class-leading 35" in width, the Bite performs to the paddle-ability and stand-ability standards you are used to in a Jackson Kayak. It is estimated at under 68 lbs making it easy to manage in and out of the water. The Bite's comfort was not skimped on either, with the addition of a brand-new trimmable, framed seating system and plenty of room to stand comfortably. The open-concept deck has been long-awaited from Jackson, giving the paddler ample storage space fore and aft along with a system of touring-style bungie cords. The deck features numerous storage placeholders for standard-sized tackle boxes. Jackson Kayak has also included their popular flush-mounted rod holders, as well as long-awaited integrated recessed cup holders, gear tracks on both sides, adjustable foot braces and a hog trough recess to make the Bite a full-featured kayak. COMING JANUARY 2019.

    Will this have the high and low seat positions?
    Would be great if it did!

    Hey Mark, this seat will not have hi/lo seating but will be trimmable fore & aft. Should be a solid ride, for sure!

      Sounds good, thanks.

    Does the deck have a Standing pad or an anti-slip «carpet» ?

    1. September 17, 2018 at 10:14 am

      Hi Marc, it does not, but the deck is textured to help it be more ‘grippy’. We will likely offer an accessory standing pad kit in the near future.

    Does this have the skid plate on the bottom?

    1. September 26, 2018 at 8:25 am

      Hey Robert, yes, the Bite will have a skid plate similar to what is on the MayFly and Liska.

    Is there a recess on the bottom of the kayak for fishfinder transponder or do u just use one of the scupper plugs?

    1. November 7, 2018 at 4:53 pm

      Hey Warren! As it happens… there are TWO transducer scuppers in the hull 😉

  8. December 4, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    Just what I’ve been looking for to compliment my Big Tuna for solo trips. Can’t wait to see the boat. That weight, width, length and price is perfect for me.

    Is the ride going to be relatively dry or will water creep up through the scuppers?

    1. December 17, 2018 at 10:00 am

      Hi EB! This is going to be a relatively dry ride, assuming you stay away from the 400lb max capacity limit. We’re stoked on this boat for sure!
