A Tale Of Two Canyon Fishermen:
“As Captain and Owner of Bella Donna, David started this Tournament 7 years ago due to the lack of tuna tournaments in Montauk. Having fished many tournaments over the years, designing a tournament on his own came natural to Dave. The Montauk Canyon Challenge has proudly restored Montauk as home to top canyon Sportfish boats.” says SI Yachts’ Rich Lucas. David O’Halloran left us this past Memorial Day while spending time doing what he loved most – boating with his beautiful family.
David O’Halloran and Don Oellerich fished the Canyons for many, many years. Don passed away this year after a battle with cancer. His passion to fish the Canyons was immense and he was a pleasure to crew with. Please support Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in honor of Don Oellerich.
We are greatly saddened by their passing. Join us as we honor Dave’s commitment, desire and persistence as he elevated the MCC to one of the most exciting tournaments in the Northeast!
Rich Lucas, Chris Squeri and the Staten Island Yacht Sales Team have a belief that competition, sportsmanship and fun are what matters. We hope all of you enjoy the Tournament and we look forward to seeing you at the scales!
