Went fishing on Monday, July 3, 2017

I went out for a twilight trip on July 3rd with Captain Steve and Jill and First Mate Gil - we had 2 adults and 5 kids of different ages - we had an amazing time on the boat with everybody catching at least one striped bass - we caught 9 in total - Steve, Jill and Gil were true professionals and expert fisherman - the boat was roomy and well equipped with state of the art equipment - the crew really wanted everybody to enjoy the trip and have a good time and not go home empty handed - my 14 year old daughter had the biggest catch of the day - a 50 inch / 45 lb striped bass - I highly recommend November Rain Charters and thank Steve, Jill and Gil for giving us such a memorable day out in Montauk
