Guide to Tuna Fishing in the Hudson Canyon?

We’re going on our first deep sea fishing trip to the hudson canyon off NY and we we’re wondering how we need to prepare and what to bring and if their are any special fishing spots that anyone knows. We have a 27 and a half foot long boston whaler 255 conquest with 5 rod holders. We were wondering what type of lure to use and how fast to troll and what to bring. I think were fine on fuel because we have a 150 gallon tank. Can anyone help us
