The Fluke for Luke fishing tournament takes place this weekend, July 10 and 11, helping to raise funds for the family of Luke Gurney who was killed in a fishing accident in June of 2016.

Following the death of the popular Island fisherman the Island community rallied, hosting an annual summer fishing tournament to raise scholarship money for his sons, Jacob and Sam Gurney.

Registration takes place at Coops Bait & Tackle, Dicks Bait & Tackle and Larry’s Tackle Shop. An online auction has already begun with items ranging from fishing equipment to dinners, bi-plane rides and sunset sails, to name a few.

There will be a closing ceremony on Sunday at the Portuguese-American Club.
