Conservation at forefront of Lucerne ChampionshipConservation . Events . News & Press Releases
Conservation and protecting the areas we love to fish are core values here at Power-Pole. We are proud to support many conservation efforts across the U.S., and the Herman Lucerne Memorial (HLM) Backcountry Fishing Championship is an event that we have sponsored for the past six years.
The HLM Foundation and its namesake backcountry fishing tournament were started by Dr. Lloyd Wruble in honor of his good friend and Everglades fishing legend Herman Lucerne. The foundation has raised thousands of dollars over the years for enhancing the angler experience and water quality in Everglades National Park.
Tournament participants’ goal is seven species in two days of fishing. This tournament is by far one of the most challenging in-shore tournaments in the country.
The weather was perfect for both days, and Team Power-Pole finished with four species.
Special congratulations to the top team of Capt. Steve Tejera and Roger Fernandez for catching all seven species on fly.
