As all anglers understand, the best point of the day to go angling is in the early morning or during the sunset.
However, finding the right angling location can be difficult, especially if there are steep terrain and jagged rocks in your path. Furthermore, moving around between locations and transporting equipment could be painful.
Thankfully, a fishing eBike solves these problems, enabling fishermen to easily move between locations with their poles and access steep and rocky terrains in the dark or daylight.
Fishing eBikes are the best ways to explore the great outdoors and make your fishing trip so much more enjoyable. But different terrains and locations come with their own set of challenges. So which fishing eBike is right for you?
There's no universally superior option and, just like fishing destinations, eBikes come in all shapes and sizes. That’s why we’ve curated this list of our favorite electric bikes for fishing on the market based on power, price, and functionality.
As the long-standing myth of where the name comes from, the Jeep eBike is one of the best general-purpose platforms you're going to find. The powerful mid-drive motor is ready to deal an impressive 160-NM of torque and an impressive range of 48 miles.
It's mated with an SRAM 9-Speed gear system to offer total control over power output and acceleration, and a set of TEKTRO 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes help to bring everything to a stop. It also makes use of a Fire-Link suspension system and 4.8-inch wide electric bike fat tires to provide maximum grip and comfort.
All-in-all, the Jeep is designed to accel in rocky areas or where many obstacles may stand in your way, and agility is key. However, it's not going to break a sweat keeping up with the best on those long straights.
Another great feature to keep in mind is the detachable thumb throttle. If rules are strict in the areas you intend to fish, modifying it to meet Class 1 regulations is as simple as unplugging it.
Quietkat is not an easy name to ignore when you're shopping for fishing eBikes. Part of what makes that so is the fact that some of its eBikes, such as the Ranger, can be outfitted with an Angler's Kit accessory package. This setup features a cargo trailer, premium suspension seat post, a Gore cargo cooler, and a premium comfort saddle.
The Ranger is nothing to simply gloss over, though. Its 750 Watt or optional 1,000 Watt motor paired with the SRAM 7-Speed and Kenda Juggernaut 4-inch fat tires help it perform well in all situations.
Tektro disc brakes are there to keep speed under control, and the Mozo Coil Suspension fork helps to keep the tire on the ground.
This model will shine on relatively mild terrain, but it's certainly got the grunt to get through the rough stuff. Seeing as riders also have 5-different speed modes to work with, a walk-assist mode, and various sizes to choose between, it's certainly what you'll want to get around the dams you're known to fish dry.
The Flatlander is undoubtedly worth your consideration if you often travel down trails stretching alongside your favorite river or creek. It is one of the few hub-drive motors you'll want to consider because the Bafang 750W high-end rear hub is the powerplant of choice.
With the Shimano Alivio Hill-Climbing 9 speed, Maxxis Minion fat tires, and Tektro dual-piston disc brakes, it's nothing short of a performer that'll make due when situations get rough.
It also comes equipped with a BCEB GT MRK 100mm AIR Fork and wide handlebars for maximum stability at speed. The SR Sport saddle outback will also come in handy when you'd prefer not to lug your tackle around in a backpack or satchel.
The Flatlander is built with a lightweight but rugged aluminum alloy frame that helps to keep the weight at just 63 pounds. Despite what that may lead you to believe, it can still support up to 300 pounds. All of that paired with the 40-plus mile range makes for a package you can't ignore when it's time to break out the flies.
Quietkat is back with a third eBike for you to consider. The RidgeRunner's name should say it all.
This bike is built to tackle the roughest, most unforgiving terrain anyone should ride an eBike on. You can argue that it's overkill for the areas you'd be willing to trek through, but all of the bells and whistles will come in handy when the trail suddenly goes from bad to worse.
This fishing eBike is powered by a 1000 Watt (1,500 peak watt) Ultra Mid-Drive motor. That muscle makes use of the SRAM 9-Speed and CST Roly Poly fat tires to climb almost any terrain. It's also nice to know that powerful Tektro 4-piston disc brakes help keep your eBike steady on the descent.
The removable thumb-throttle is present for a quick-fix in those restrictive areas, and riders can select between three sizes. Also, the 64-mile range is there to get you home if those tight spots span a little longer than you thought.
What if it's not just rocks and logs standing between you and that trophy bass? What if there's mud, leaves, and other loose terrains you need to shimmy over as well? The Rungu Dualie is the answer.
The Dualie might look like something out of a science fiction film, but it's a true performer on the soft stuff. Doubling-up on front tires helps it to maintain maximum stability on just about any surface.
Now for the tricky part. The Rungu Dualie is available in a total of five different versions that you’ll need to pick between. Each is built to match the demand of different riders. As a fisher, it's hard to overlook the Rugged package due to its Maxxis Minion fat tires, and saddlebags.
Don’t get too worked up over the decision-making process. Any version of the Rungo Dualie is a great choice, thanks to the Befang 1120W mid-drive motor, though. Which electric bicycle is right for you is just a matter of how much you need to take with you across loose ground.
The Rambo Rebel 1000 is yet another contender for anglers with more than one fishing spot in mind. There are a lot of details that make it a superior general-purpose suitor, but the 11 gear options provided by the SRAM NX 1X11 make it stand out among a sea of options.
Eleven gears mean you can easily tailor the behavior of the eBike to seemingly infinite riding scenarios. Tight trails, uphill climbs, wide-open flats, you name it, it can handle it. The 48-mile range might even encourage you to keep moving once you've reached that secret spot.
As for the specs, the Rebel 1000 comes with the Bafang 1,000W BBSHD High-Torque mid-drive motor, GT 860 air suspension, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes.
All of that grunt gets to the ground thanks to beefy Maxxis Minion fat tires too. Fishers also have the option to outfit it with front and rear racks to keep their tackle right where they want it on those exceptionally hardy trails.
Last, but certainly not least is the Backou Mule Step-Through eBike. The step-through frame is perfect for those among you who don't want to step out of their waders between spots.
In addition, the lowered frame makes it easier for you to mount the eBike so you won't have to lift your leg up as high. While that makes it more practical for those wearing restrictive gear, it's something older anglers or folks with limiting physical conditions will appreciate as well.
Even if it’s fancy, it's still a Backou eBike. That means it's got more to offer than a little bit of comfort. The Bafang Ultra mid-drive Motor with Torque Sensor offers exceptional performance and a range of over 40 miles.
Matching that with the Shimano Alivio Hill-Climbing 9-speed and Maxxis fat tires makes for a platform that will shine on most trails. It's even got a killer set of Tekro quad-piston disc brakes to snap to stop when you opt to try a new spot on a whim.
All of these fishing eBikes make great companions for anglers of all types. Each brings something unique to the table that's going to help it shine in the many situations you're bound to encounter on that next adventure.
Electric bikes aren’t just great for fishers either. You can also transform your eBike into an electric mounting bike or hunting ebike that best suits your desire. Check out our extensive list of fishing electric bikes for one that best suits your fishing needs and terrain.
