November Rain Charters

Fishing out of Montauk, New York, November Rain Charters offer trips in Block Island Sound and beyond. Captains Steve and Jill have been fishing Montauk for 25 years, so they know all the best fishing spots, and they’re ready to show them to you.

With a large boat that comfortably accommodates up to 15 anglers, they provide memorable trips for small and large groups alike.

The November Rain is a 43’ Lowell boat, fully restored in 2014. Powered by an 800 HP engine, it reaches the fishing spots with plenty of time to spare for you to wet your lines and hone your skills. The boat has superior fishfinding and navigational electronics by Simrad and Northstar, and it features a head (marine toilet) as well as a covered cabin and large deck area.

Both beginners and experienced anglers are welcome aboard the November Rain, and everyone on board will be supplied with quality fishing equipment by Penn to give them the best chance of landing their dream fish. The crew will be happy to clean and fillet any fish that you wish to take home and taste.

These are very fish-rich waters, so you’ll always find something to bite. Whether you want to fish inshore for Striped Bass, Fluke, and Seabass, or to travel offshore for big game such as Tuna and Sharks, the experienced crew will do all they can to help you reel in a big one. All trips include the use of the finest tackle, bait, ice, and a courteous and fun crew.

Visit the pristine waters off the coast of Montauk, and have the time of your life with November Rain Charters!
