After reading almost exclusively negative reviews to this game I rented it anyway. Alot of people said you couldn't catch fish. I caught about fifty averaging about 5pounds each. My 7 year old son caught one that was over 13 pounds and one that was an amazing 16 pounds plus! This game is realistic. You don't always catch fish when you really go fishing. That's why they call it fishing not catching! The game is the same way. You have to know a little about real fishing. You fish near cover, bridges, dead trees, docks, etc. not in open water. You must fish with the right bait at the right depth. Then add a measure of Patience! The game becomes very fun in tournament mode once u unlock some lures. Happy Fishing!
