A few things I don't like (all related to when you're reeling a fish in)
- You need to only reel in when the fish is in the center of the screen. So when the fish goes to the left, you twist the pole to the right. It's not intuitive, and in no way resembles a "real" fishing experience.
- It's not intuitive whether or not the line is about to break. They show a 2/3-prong hook, and one of the prongs sometimes goes yellow or red.
- If you're doing well, the screen sometimes gives you the opportunity for a "power move". I haven't read the manual, but so far, I think "power move" translates to "doing this will guarantee that the fish gets away." I don't get it. I would think a "power move" would help me.
- Apparently there's an objective to fishing trips, but it wasn't obvious. But I didn't read the manual...
A few things I do like:
- You don't need a rod/reel peripheral. I bought (rather nice) one from a local game shop. I was expecting the peripheral to add to the experience, but it doesn't do much, since you have to keep moving the rod back and forth to keep the fish in the center of the screen. Since nothing else I'm doing seems "real" (see comment above about keeping the fish centered), the reeling motion adds nothing. I found I had much more fun using "B" to reel in.
- The menus are navigable via the directional pad on the wii remote (rather than having to point the wiimote at the screen).
- Casting is easy. Driving the boat is easy.
- Overall, gameplay is fun.
I have not tried any other Wii fishing games. This one will probably suit my needs for a fishing game. Would recommend, but it has some flaws.
The game play is easy enough to pick up quickly and the competitiveness is right up there. The sounds are not annoying either, everyone knows of games that make you want to turn the sound off after a few minutes!
-Casting is intuitive and seems realistic but hooking and reeling in just doesn't feel "right"; it's too slow and there isn't really much feedback. It's like a mini-game trying to keep the fish in the middle of the screen (as the in-game coach will continuously tell you) and some of the "attacks" seem cartoonish.
- Audio is cool, but repetitive. Casting and reeling sound great, as does the boat...it's the announcer(s) that seems to have only a few lines to say.
-Tourneys are fun, but a little frustrating at first. It's cool that you get to fish against real pros on real lakes.
-Includes a decent amount (and decently recreated) of fish species. It's not just about catching large mouth bass.
-Graphics (considering it's a 5 year old Wii game) are ok, nothing special and not horrific.
This game falls right between Sega Bass Fishing and The Strike on the realism and fun scale. If you can find it for a decent price, pick it up.

One of the better fishing games I have played. I love any game where you don't catch just bass. It is very multispecies and some of the challenges are pretty tough. Read morePublished 4 months ago by A cappella bass
Very fun to play. Not as fun as real fishing, but it cures the itch temporarily. Many hours of fun, and family time.Published 11 months ago by JWF
This product came right on time, which was great. However it had already been open, the disk looks good. Although I wish it didn't come open everything else is great.Published 17 months ago by YVONNE
Too hard to hook a fish. Even my boyfriend who is avid fisherman did not like it. Save your money.Published 20 months ago by Diana
We liked this game because we were looking for diversity in many fishing games. We like to fish and had compared this game to others and found that the kids liked this game. Read morePublished on February 10, 2014 by WILLIAM L DILLMAN JR
