Sport fishing; Organic Corporate Team Building Events that Last

by Channel Islands Sportfishing Staff

November 22nd, 2013

Today’s employers realize that there is tremendous value in events that increase the moral and unity of their team. Team spirit is directly related to better employee retention, improved recruitment, and increased productivity. That’s what makes corporate team building events so valuable. However, not every type of corporate team building  event is right for every company. Many companies shy away from the highly structured programs presented by professional team builders and opt for fun events that build camaraderie and team unity organically.

What is an Organic Team Building Event?

Not every one wants a week of camping in the woods, speeches and trust exercises, but that does not mean that they need to count themselves out of the game when it comes to building team spirit with purpose. Organic corporate teambuilding events are ones that set the stage for excitement, teamwork, camaraderie, and lasting memories without the structured programs, such as sporting events.

Why Organic Team Building Events Work

There are some great reasons why organic corporate team building events work so well, and in many cases better than their structured counterpart.

  • Employees see them as a reward
  • Participants are more inclined to be relaxed
  • Relationships are grown and improved naturally
  • Participants are looking to build a memory, rather than “get through” an event
  • Removes everyone from the work environment
  • Allows everyone to see co-workers in a new light
  • Participants naturally draw parallels from nature and apply it to their lives

Sport Fishing the Channel Islands—Team Building at its Best

For those that want the thrill of a team building event, but not the corporate stuffiness, a sport fishing event in the Channel Islands fits the bill. Sport fishing is one of the few events that truly take employees away from it all in a stress free and exhilarating environment. Corporations can rent more than one boat, divide into teams, and hold a company tournament. In addition to providing the thrill of a lifetime, sport fishing sets the stage for teamwork, relationship building, bragging rights over catching “the Big One”, and of course, stories of the “the one that got away”. Our Fleet.

One of the most important reasons why sport fishing is a top choice in building unity is that it is an experience that can never be duplicated, and shared by only those who attend. It is that shared spirit of adventure that every company tries to achieve because that is what fuels success.

No license required to fish on September 7, 2013

by Channel Islands Sportfishing Staff

August 28th, 2013

Free Fishing days for 2013 are July 6 and September 7

Have you ever felt the excitement of watching your bobber suddenly jiggle, then dive out of sight? Or feeling the tap-tap-tap of a bass as it tastes the worm on the end of your line? Or having a salmon practically tear the rod out of your hands as it smashes your lure? What's that? You say you never learned to fish?

If you are new to the sport of fishing, and not sure if you will enjoy it, a great opportunity awaits you. CDFW offers two Free Fishing Days each year. On these days, you can fish without a sport fishing license. Free Fishing Days provide a great, low-cost way to give fishing a try. Some CDFW Regions offer a Fishing in the City program where you can go fishing in the middle of major metropolitan areas perhaps just a few blocks from your home. Fishing in the City and free fishing day clinics are designed to educate novice anglers about fishing ethics, fish habits, effective methods for catching fish, and fishing tackle. You can even learn how to clean and prepare your catch so you can enjoy it for dinner that night.

While all fishing regulations, such as bag and size limits, gear restrictions, report card requirements, fishing hours and stream closures remain in effect, there are two days each year when anyone can fish without purchasing a fishing license.

Book you trip today! Schedule and online booking.

4th Annual Fish 4 Food Charity Event - Food Share of Ventura County

by Channel Islands Sportfishing Staff

April 13th, 2013
4th Annual Fish4Food Charity Event Is A Success!   
  
On March 19, 2013, Channel Island Sportfishing, along with Fish4Food founder Jerry Stussman, Gold Coast Lady Anglers and Ventura County Food Share, held the 4th Annual Fish4Food Charity Event.
  
Approximately 300 anglers left the dock on 10 Sportboats out of Channel Islands Sportfishing landing. The weather looked to be good! The day was spent fishing out at our local islands amongst a great atmosphere of anticipation of which boat was going to catch the most fish to donate. Good times were had by all!  
 
"Thank you so very much for helping to make the 4th Annual Fish4Food event such a success. I had a great time out on the ocean (other than getting a bad sunburn...whoops!) and loved the energy of the entire day. I had to run out to class at about 3:30PM but it was great to see how many people stuck around for the lunch and raffle afterward fishing all day. I have attached the total weight sheet for each boat and the total lbs. collected - 550 lbs. of fish is simply amazing." 
Jordan Brown, Special Events Coordinator  
of Ventura County Food Share
