Environments based on real lakes, along with accurate fish and lure behaviors, make this one of the best fishing games of all time. Cast, jig, set the hook, and fight like the real thing. Virtual angling has never been so realistic or so much fun.

One reviewer said, “Once you have the casting down it is a blast – i have never fished with a lure before and this is a good training tool for that purpose and when you do get a bite the rod feels just like a real rod with a fish fighting on the end .. the fish sometimes leap out of the water when putting up a good fight!. the fishing rod is made of plastic and could of been made better as it feels like it might break at any given moment .. but as for realism -hands down the best fishing game out there.”
