Fluid Kayaks is a South African brand, but they do have a few deals in North America as well as Canada. The Bamba is one of their kayaks that is purposely built for fishing, but it also makes for a great touring kayak. The Bamba is 13'11" in length and has a width of 31.25". Its weight is 73 lbs, but it does offer a carrying capacity of up to 485 lbs.

The length of the Bamba in conjunction with the hull design ensures that this is a fast kayak that is also able to remain stable at all times, which is essential for fishing. It is a sit-on-top fishing kayak that is available in a variety of different colors, including yellow, orange, green, blue and camo. Fluid Kayaks has ensured that the Bamba appeals to anglers with a combination of hatches that provides up to 260 liters of in-hull storage space. The main hatch along can easily accommodate a fully rigged fishing rod while the rear hatches have removable drain plugs, which is perfect for either dry compartments, or even livewells. This kayak also features two hatches with mesh keep bags for storing items like your safety equipment, phone, and wallet. For added convenience, Fluid Kayaks has designed the lid of the main hatch in such a way that it can accommodate a bait board and is also molded to fit a water bottle and two cup holders. A fish finder can be mounted into the nook on the center console where it will be flush with the deck while the rear storage compartment is spacious enough to hold a variety of accessories.

The Bamba has a roto-molded polycarbonate plastic shell, so it is very durable and the molded keel also helps with control. An optional rudder is available for this kayak to help it cope with choppier waters or longer tours. Along with its two 50 degree rod holders, the Bamba also has a 90-degree rod holder for baiting up. Additional features range from knife storage on either side of the cockpit to non-slip foam in footwells, 11 D-rings, adjustable footrests, and a molded seat with attachment points for an optional utility seat.

Overall, the Bamba is a very decent fishing kayak, but depending on where you are located, there are probably cheaper options available. There are also plenty of fishing kayaks with newer designs available these days, but the Bamba should definitely not be underestimated.
