SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - How would you like to go fishing while helping a good cause ? You still have time to sign up for an event that benefits our wounded warriors.

The first ever 'Rockfish Derby' fishing competition is happening this Saturday in Point Loma.

On March 1st, anglers will compete in a Rockfish Derby where all the proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project in conjunction with Heroes on the Water.

San Diego tech company, The Control Group, will go from writing lines of code to lining fishing rods as an office team competing in the Rockfish Derby.

The Control Group has rented The Seeker at H&M Landing for their office to board and spend the day on fishing with members of the Wounded Warrior Project. The Control Group will cheer on its crew of seven programmers-turned-fisherman.

The winners will show off their biggest catches at the end of the day.

The Rockfish Derby will raise money for its two charitable organizations by awarding prizes to the team that snags the heaviest fish in various categories. The categories include, Ling Cod, California Sheephead, California White Fish, Vermillion Rockfish and Boccaccio.
