Here's the trick

The game tells you to jig the rod to entice the fish to bite. Do the opposite. Just stop reeling in the lure when a fish is close. The wait about 15 seconds with the lure motionless, and boom, you've caught him. Rapala is trying to sell their lures, but in the game they almost scare away the fish unless motionless.

Also, avoid the long casts. If you have to reel in a fish with more than 100 feet of line out, the fish will likely throw the hook. I guess those Rapala lures can't hold a fish.

The game was only enjoyable for about 15 minutes because my young kids got excited seeing a fish. I sent it back after one day.

not many surprises here, the controls are akward at best, graphics and gameplay are average. i've played better fishing games on the xbox and ps2. i'm a hardcore fisherman and i really can't find anything good to say about this game, exept maybe the wide selection of lures other than that, i think most gamers will be frustrated by the lack of fish. wouldn't recommend this one as a buy or rental. try fisherman's challenge instead

I've played the Wii version of the game. The graphics are much better looking in the 360 version. The controls are somewhat awkward. The sound is great! Overall - the game is boring. On a positive note - Tournament Fishing is worth playing as it the only all-fishing game available for the xbox 360. It is a welcome change of pace - in terms adding to the variety of available games for the Xbox 360.
