Sportsmanship and Camaraderie

The Montauk Canyon Challenge was created to foster sportsmanship and camaraderie among offshore fisherman.  While we recognize the great expense each boat incurs to fish our tournament, in the end its about having a good time doing what we the Canyons.  The Tournament Directors reserve the right to turn a away entry for any boat that does not share our mutual goals.

$1,500.00 per Boat (same as 2016!)

$1,750.00 After March 31, 2017

Hudson & Dealer's Choice

As Captain and Owner of Bella Donna, Dave started this Tournament 6 years ago because Montauk did not have a Tuna Tournament.  Having fished many Tournaments, it was easy to design a Tournament that kept the best of many Tournaments and throw out the rules that didn't make sense.  Now the Montauk Canyon Challenge has grown into a Tournament that has restored Montauk as home to Top Canyon Sport Fishing Boats.  Rich Lucas and the Staten Island Yacht Sales Team have been supportive every step of the way.  It is the committees combined belief that Competition, Sportsmanship and Fun...Matter.  Hope all of you enjoy the Tournament and we look forward to seeing you at the scales!

 Hudson & Dealer's Choice will be fishing in the Montauk Canyon Challenge, if either or both boat are in the prize money, Polygraph Test will be required of each boat regardless of prize amount.
