The Crew

The NOVEMBER RAIN sails on a full-time basis—7 days a week—throughout the season, which typically runs from April through December.

Our goal is to ensure the best experience possible for everyone who fishes with us. If you’d like additional information about our boat or availability, or if you have any other questions, give us a call at 646-423-8806 or 646-335-7315, or or email us at info@novemberraincharters.com. Thanks for checking us out!


Captain Steve

Captain SteveCaptain Steve, who grew up fishing and loves nothing more than being on the water, is on the boat all season long and is present on every trip. Steve’s been fishing the East End since the 80s, and has been running a boat in Montauk for over 20 years. On days when the boat’s not fishing, you’ll often find Steve doing dock work, including cleaning, maintenance and repairs, rigging new tackle, or anything else needed to ensure we continue to run a top-notch operation. There’s always something to do!

Captain Jill

Captain JillCaptain Jill, who started fishing with Steve 25 years ago, got her first taste of Montauk in the mid-90s. Nowadays, most of her time in Montauk is on the weekends, when she runs the boat along with Captain Steve. In addition to ensuring she puts her customers on the fish (creating a little friendly competition with Steve!), Jill is primarily responsible for the “behind-the-scenes” business activity, including finances, advertising, and USCG compliance, to name just a few. Captain Jill also serves as Secretary for the Montauk Boatmen and Captain’s Association.

First Mate Gil

First Mate GilFirst Mate Gil has been working on the NOVEMBER RAIN for the past 5 years and is generally on the boat during the week, working with Captain Steve. A native of Montauk, Gil knows the local waters inside and out. He’s a natural with people and knows exactly what’s needed to ensure a great experience.
