Last June, the Island lost Luke Gurney in a commercial fishing accident. This year the Luke for Fluke fishing tournament will celebrate his love of fishing and raise funds for his two sons’ college education. In addition to the fishing contest, the event will include a silent auction and raffle.

The tournament will take place on Saturday and Sunday, July 8 and 9. Fluke and black sea bass will be eligible species. An awards ceremony and silent auction will be held on Sunday July 9, starting at 5 p.m. at the Portuguese-American Club in Oak Bluffs. The event is being organized by a group of Luke’s friends, who also would like to recognize Peter Hermann and the VFW in Oak Bluffs for helping pass the torch after running the annual summer fluke tournament for many years.
