Captain David waited for some storms to move out for us and still honored our full day trip and was able to get us some keepers. Highly recommend this trip!

Half day with Captain Dave Dave knew exactly where to drop the lines in. Dave made sure everyone had fun and enjoyed the experience. We were catching fish within minutes of being out in the water. This was an awesome experience. I highly recommend using the Bay Bandits for your fishing experience.

Dave was a great awesome trip, knowledgeable, professional, and he delivers the fish! He packed a full day of exciting fishing into the four hour trip. He told us what the plan was and he delivered. He was great with my sons 13 and 11. He worked with my older son while I helped my younger son. Dave was coaching him to learn a technique new to him to catch a certain species of fish. He was calm, encouraging and easygoing. He delivered on some fishing memories for a lifetime. Will definitely be booking trips in the future. Class A operation, top notch equipment, and a heck of a Capt. Dave's not gonna let a catch of a lifetime get away from you if he can do anything about it. Dave can get it done, it was just one of those days when the fish weren't biting or you can't fish! I promise ya that! ;) Thanks again, Dave!.

All my girls wanted wanted to do this and it was one of the best experience we have had. Eldest lives on Cape Cod and she said it was the funniest fishing trip. We are planning to do this again and if you pick you will too. It was a great experience for all my girls and me.

Captain is very laid back, fun to be around and really knows how to fish! We started by catching bait fish to use for Shark fishing. Once we got enough in the boat, we went to a spot and almost immediately we started reeling in sharks, it was amazing. The biggest was a 44-48” Bull shark. But we caught more Bonnet heads than we could count, but we did not keep any of them, just got pictures and turned them loose. The we put 4 Reds in the boat and one we had to tag because it was so big, we kept those. It was fun non-stop action for us and meanwhile boats all around us were not having the same success! If you want a great day on the water I highly recommend the Bay Bandits! Beginners, veterans, it don’t matter, Dave will take care of you!

Seven hours of fishing is not my idea of a fun weekend, but this was pretty fun. Jeff caught a record of stringray for the area 212 pounds 45ft 5in). Kamryn lost a lot of bait and I tangled a lot of fishing line. We caught 12 sharks in total and kept two. The best part is I went the whole 7 hours without touching any of the caught fish or the shrimp bait. Thank you The Bay Bandits for such a fun trip.
