Herman Lucerne Backcountry Fishing Tournament to raise money for Everglades National Park September 12-14

Over $75,000 in Cash Prizes to be awarded

The Herman Lucerne Backcountry Fishing Tournament honors the memory of the most knowledgeable anglers of Everglades National Park since its inception. Through the efforts of a volunteer committee of avid Everglades  anglers, this event features a catch-and-release competition with  many prizes. This year a BackCountry boat manufactured by  Maverick Boat Company will be won by one of our anglers by  RAFFLE. Each angler will be automatically entered in the  raffle. This backcountry event gives anglers the chance to fish and  enjoy the beautiful Everglades National Park. This Year Everglades National Park will become the benefactor of  funds raised by this event. The funds will be used to help finance  various park projects.
