This game was decent and the graphics were fantasitic especially pertaining to the fish models. The lures had pretty close to realistic action and it was a pretty decent arcade fishing sim. If you're an avid fisherman like myself, this is a somewhat acceptable substitution when you can't get out on the lake but nothing can beat a nice day out at your REAL fishing hole!
If you like bass fishing, this is the game to get. If your not a fisherman, your probably gonna have some problems because there is no tutorial. When fishing jigs and worms, you can hop them, plow them, swim them, or fish them any way you need to depending on water conditions, weather, time of day and tempetures. You can work poppers, rip stickbaits, slow-roll spinnerbaits or burn em', there are a million ways to work lures and just like in real life if you expect to win any big tournaments you have to know what to throw, when to throw it, how fast to work it, what color to use and how deep to fish it. You won't get any help in this respect so if your idea of fishin' is a live worm floating under a bobber, this game will be more work than fun. On the other hand you could learn alot of stuff that would take a couple hundred hours on the water to learn. Good luck and keep a tight line!
