From light tackle flats and bay boats targeting striped bass, bluefish, and false albacore to center consoles and sport fish style vessels targeting shark, tuna, and mahi-mahi out in the deep, the charter fleet based out of Montauk Anglers Club offers a flavor of everything.


This 2019, 50′ Munson Chinook, is a one-of-a-kind aluminum build sportfish. Designed with a full, walkaround forward section and a spacious cockpit she’s got plenty of elbow room for six anglers. Her enclosed pilot house offers protection from the elements with the added luxury of air conditioning and heat which make all the difference on those chilly fall days.

Powered by 4 Yamaha 425HP XTO Outboards she can use her 1700 total horsepower to comfortably cruise at 28mph and sprint to the fishing grounds at a top speed of 48mph. This custom vessel has been outfitted with the latest electronics for navigation and fish finding. That includes 4 unique transducers with side scan and other fish finding capabilities.

Offering both inshore and offshore fishing trips, Thermocline is equipped with top-of-the-line rods, reels, & tackle from names like Shimano, Penn, Chatter Lures, Nomad Design, and more.


I am Derrick Northcote, I have a 100 ton captain’s license with over 20 years fishing experience on Long Island. Growing up in Huntington on the North Shore I started  working deck on the James Joseph. I moved out east and began a new career as an outboard technician at Gone Fishing Marina (now Montauk Anglers Club). On the side I have been working deck and captaining for the famed Viking Fleet in Montauk as well as relief captain for the Grand Slam charter boat. I have taken all my experiences and skill to now run my own charter boat “Against The Wind” and put people on fish as I have done for many years. Book a trip with me and you won’t be disappointed!

We are here to make your experience memorable.


Ahoy! I’m Captain Pat. I’m a seasoned fisherman and surfer and I’ve been passionate about the ocean for as long as I can remember. Born and raised in Montauk, NY, I grew up spending most of my time either in or on the water (yes, even in the winter). 

I began fishing as a child purely for the love of it. Usually taking a back seat to surfing however, it wasn’t until after college that my fishing obsession really set in. Throughout those years I would jump at any chance to go fishing and hone my skills.

It didn’t take all that long to decide that I wanted to pursue fishing as a career. I’ve dreamt about making a life for myself in the world of sport fishing. For the past 5 summers I worked aboard the historic charter boat “My Mate”.

Join me for a day of fishing/cruising the waters of Montauk! Equipment, ice, bait and fuel are all included in my daily rates. You’ll need to bring along your food and drink for the day, as well as a good attitude ☺.
