Capt. Mark DeCabia and PHil Dulanie took the Frank Knoefel charter out Monday to Tuesday and stoped 40 miles offshore to troll some tuna and bend the rods. Two hours of trolling saw 4 nice bluefin tuna come to the boat in the 30-50 pound class - keeping one. They headed off to the Hudson Canyon and trolled the wall out to the mouth and got in on a nice big-eye bite putting a 170# big-eye in the boat. On the chunk only a short amount of time passed when the deep rod went off and they were battling what ended up being a 54" swordfish that was boated. They fought and lost anothe sword, missed a third and released a mako. Up on the troll in the morning they hooked and fought (only to lose) a 600# blue marlin that put on a nice show for the happy charter.
