The Bilbao Fishing is the shortest of the fishing kayaks available from BIC Sport and also one of their lightest. It is 9'10” in length and has a width of 31” while it weighs in at 50lbs. The Bilbao Fishing is constructed of thermoformed polyethylene and is able to carry a maximum load of 264 lbs. As the name suggests, this kayak is optimized for fishing, but its versatility makes it something that both beginners and experienced kayakers can appreciate. Its versatility also means that it is able to provide a stable fishing platform in a range of different conditions.

The Tri hull design of the Bilbao enhances its stability, comfort and speed out on the water, while the twin sheet technology used in its construction not only makes it lighter, but also easier to paddle. It’s not just the tracking that is good, but the turning ability of the Bilbao is also above average, which means you can use it to move around in tight spots if required. While the Bilbao is stable enough that the risk of falling overboard is very low, it also has integral survival lines to make it easy for you to get back on board should this happen.

The cockpit of this kayak is surprisingly comfortable and, depending on how long you typically spend out on the water fishing, a backrest might not even be needed. Since the floor of the cockpit is higher than water level, there is little chance of any water reaching the seat, especially as there is a slight slope to the footwell where you’ll find a drain. You’ll also find that it has triple-level moulded foot rests that should accommodate most paddler sizes. For a 9’ kayak the Bilbao has plenty of storage options as it offers bow bungee, forward and rear watertight hatches, a wide rear storage area with elasticated straps and double rod rack at the rear. The Bilbao is a very light kayak, but transporting it is made even easier thanks to its integrated transport wheel.

For a company that is perhaps better known for making pens and lighters, Bic has done a great job with this durable and affordable fishing kayak.
