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.
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.

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.

The White Seabass was off the hook this past summer, along with great Halibut fishing, with Ling Cod, Sheephead, White Fish, and a great variety of Rockfish filling the bags.
