Montauk Canyon Challenge 2023

The 2023 Montauk Canyon Challenge begins this July! Register for this unique and exciting fishing tournament before May 1st, 2023 and receive a discount on the entry fee.

To create the most fun and enjoyable tournament possible, the times to fish are a lot more flexible than most tournaments which allows our participating anglers the freedom to choose the best weather days and what works for their schedules. Anglers have a 9-day weather window to fish!
