2014 Herman Lucerne Memorial Tournament



For the 2nd year in a row, BRP Evinrude sponsored the Herman Lucerene Memorial Tournament for it’s prestigious support and involvement with conserving the Everglades National Park. The Herman Lucerne Memorial Backcountry Fishing Championship was founded in 2000 by Homestead Hospital and Dr. Lloyd Wruble of Miami in honor of the late Herman Lucerne, a pioneer and legend in backcountry fishing in Everglades National Park. Limited to the boundaries of Everglades National Park, the tournament is a unique and challenging two-day, “catch and release” event that welcomes anglers of all skill levels, both young and old, and male and female.



Supporting the conservation of our environment is an important focus for Evinrude as it parallels with BRP’s efforts with the E-TEC technology and now, the new Evinrude E-TEC G2 being the “cleanest” outboard in the world with the lowest emissions.


“We recently introduced the Evinrude E-TEC G2 which representing about 75% fewer emissions than any other combustion outboard in the world.”

Christopher Berg, Director of Marketing – Evinrude BRP


In addition, Evinrude gave away their 2 angler entries in the tournament to a special T.E.C. member as part of the Evinrude Owners group The Evinrude Club to spread the experience of this benefit to their most passionate owners.


The seven species to be caught are: snook, snapper, redfish, trout, bonefish, tarpon and black drum. All proceeds from the tournament benefit Everglades National Park, a national treasure and designated World Heritage Site. The Herman Lucerne Memorial is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
