Fish Bandit – Vineyard Sound

Fish Bandit specializes in introducing their clients to the wonderful angling opportunities in Massachusetts. Join Captain Skip Bandini aboard his fishing machine and see what Vineyard Sound fishing is all about.

Capt. Skip operates a 24’ Robalo center console, fresh on the water in 2017. Thanks to its twin 150 HP Evinrude engines, it can cruise at a top speed of 37 knots to get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

The boat is rigged with all the technologies and electronics needed for a successful day on the water. There is a GPS, a fishfinder, and a radar on board to save your time while searching for fish. The boat features a livewell for the bait you’ll catch as part of your trip. Kids love it!

Take your fishing buddies with you or introduce your kids to fishing. Bring your family, friends, or colleagues and enjoy a fun day out on the water. Target the Bluefish, Fluke, and Black Seabass that call those waters home.

Fish Bandit will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, lures, bottled water, and fishing licenses. Complimentary fish cleaning service is available at the end of the trip.

Your expertise doesn’t matter – Capt. Skip caters to anglers of all skill levels. Just grab something to eat and hop on board!

Growing up in Boston and always having a love for being on the water, it was a natural to start fishing at a young age. I went on to graduate from Massachusetts Maritime Academy in 1981, and now that I am retired, I want to share my fishing experiences with others. Book this trip now and you’ll love the experience.
