Forty-four boats were in the mix at the recent Montauk Canyon Challenge. Event veteran Rebel, Mike Tucci's Viking 52, was the Grand Champion when the dust settled. Rebel also caught the 1st Place Heaviest Tuna with a 220-pound big eye.

Greg Marzuk's Viking 43 Blue Water weighed the top yellowfin at 62.2-pounds. Relentless, the Viking 52 owned by Tim Schmidt, thumped some tuna on the deck to win the Top Three Yellowfin Weight category with 167.5 pounds, while Pete Rhein's Sneaky Pete was right on his transom with 161 pounds for 2nd Place. Sneaky Pete also won the wahoo category with a 15.4-pound fish.

Scott Savage and his Viking 50 Reel Savage landed on the top of the leaderboard in marlin releases, and Harriet Ball, fishing the Viking 56 On The Ball, was the Top Lady Angler.
