Jackson Bite FD Walkthrough & Specs: Open-Concept Pedal Drive Fishing Kayak

John Deshauteurs of Kayak Fishing Fun walks us through the best features of the Jackson Kayak Bite FD, a lightweight, open concept kayak fishing platform that allows you to customize your kayak how you see fit with built-in gear tracks, bungees and the added convenience of a pedal drive. The Bite FD from Jackson Kayak is slghtly lighter than the Jackson YuPIK at 82 pounds (vs. YuPIK at 90lbs) and clocks in at just over 1k more than the paddle-driven YuPIK and is designed to provide high performance while requiring little maintenance. The Bite FD is built on the same Bite hull that refused to compromise performance, gear management or quality despite its economical price point and is best suited for small lakes, ponds, slow-moving rivers and inshore saltwater. MSRP $2,699.00
