The thing to remember with the tournaments is that you have to make it back to the starting point before the time runs out or your catch won’t count.
In comparison, the Daily Challenges allow you to fish right up to the whistle, but any fish you are playing as the time runs out won’t count.
I’ve been fishing in real life for over 30 years now, and so would seem to be in pole position to review a fishing game, should such a thing happen to come along.
Luckily, Rapala Fishing: Pro Series has come along, so I strapped on my virtual wellies and dived in.
For instance, I caught a Lake Trout of 14.67lbs in weight, but the length of the fish was recorded as 9.
You also need dollars to enter the tournaments, so it’s always good to have a little put away for a rainy day.
Unfortunately, it’s sad to say that first impressions are not the best, and that is mostly due to the fact that the character model looks like a department store mannequin got up one day and decided to go boat fishing.
Seriously, I’ve seen better animation in the flick books we used to make at school, and when the guy is holding up a fish that you’ve caught, it really does look like he’s made entirely of plastic.
Now, I’ve caught a few fish around this weight in the past, and they are always a lot more than 9 inches long.
I can’t imagine what girth a 14lb fish would have to have to weigh that, but I’m picturing something along the lines of a barrel with fins.
