2018 Big Bear Fishing Association Membership
Come join the Big Bear Fishing Association to take advantage of great local technology and give back to the mountain we all love!

With or without a membership, everyone is able to take advantage of our Insta Catch technology!

Insta Catch technology will allow individual business members to have a second local source of revenue from the power of family friendly fishing tournaments. It is designed to allow customers to reserve lodging and other activities / events in town at the same time as booking their fishing tournament.

All businesses will receive an email with the customers data as a reservation confirmation. For businesses using compatible PMS software, the reservation will automatically flow into their system. Insta Catch is available for any type of lodging, event or activity in town. Restaurants coming soon!

All businesses are paid directly through their own Stripe merchant account and are the merchant of record. You own your reservations and guests!

Pre-fishing eblasts  will go out  to all Platinum Business Members the Sunday before each tournament! Promoting their own Business template showing the upcoming tournament  weekend and Youth Fishing Club.  This way you as a business owner, can keep your own business identity by eblasting your pasts guests about upcoming fishing tournaments. In addition, you will receive the latest fishing information and local tips to eblast your past guests anytime. Thus, the Big Bear Lake Fishing Association is helping individual business owners create their very own Fishing VIP group or members list. If all of the  mountain worked together promoting fishing and family fishing tournaments without losing business identity just from eblasting past guests this is very powerful. This combining technology with just being nice and what is a nicer activity than family fishing.
