AWESOME GAME!!!

This game is VERY enjoyable and MUCH better with the rod & reel peripheral than just using the Wii remote and nunchuck by themselves (you need to shake the nunchuck to reel in fast which can be very tiresome, but I found that you can shake the remote to reel in fast as well which is easier than shaking the nunchuck). Using the rod peripheral takes care of effectively "shaking" the nunchuck when you reel in and makes the game much more enjoyable and lifelike. The rod is pretty well made in my opinion. Like any game, when you first play it there's a learning curve, but it definitely helps to read the booklet that comes with it BEFORE you play. The tournament part of the game is a lot of fun and you can also switch over to where two people can play in competitive mode. It's a REALLY cool game, with lots of fish (the game gives you tips on where to find them and you can use the GPS/fishfinder as well) and it's pretty easy to hook one if you react quickly enough (you'll get the hang of it in a relatively short period of time); the challenge is getting it into the boat which requires a little bit of skill in that you have to reel in only when the fish is in the middle of the screen (NOT on the sides) using the rod to bring the fish back in to the middle of the screen when it is on the sides. So, you have to set the hook in the proper direction (that the game indicates), reel in, move the rod to the left or right (which the game indicates) when the fish is on the sides, while NOT reeling in, get the fish back to the middle of the screen where you DO reel in, and continue to do that until you get the fish in the boat. There's a few tricks you can use to assist you in landing the fish which you will learn along the way. The tutorial is VERY good (which you can turn on or off during gameplay), and there are many lures that you can use and unlock as you progress through the game(as well as the choice of using either spinning or baitcasting rod/reels and different boats). You can use several different fishing techniques (fast cranking, dead sticking etc. all of which are explained in the game ). Casting is a breeze once you get the hang of it (just have to hold the B button on the way back, and release it when casting forward just like in real fishing). For only $14.96 with the rod peripheral at WalMart, (at least that's what I payed for it), it's a steal, because elsewhere you'd pay $29.99 just for the game itself (brand new). (I think you know "where"). I'd recommend this game for ANYONE, regardless of age!!!

Ever Wonder What it would be like to fish Alaskan?

I always wanted to fish in Alaska. I dreamt of reeling (or trying to reel in) a monster fish. Now I know thanks to the Rapala Pro Bass fishing...It was a lot cheaper than the actual Alaskan fishing trip however may not have been so much fun.. My 9 year old wasn't too impressed as she fishes a lot on and off the wii console. The fishing rod is cool. However, as a mother and a mature person at that, it takes a lot to reel in one of these fish.... Good price though.

Fishing Pole Breaks with 1st Play

The fishing pole broke within 30 minutes of my first time playing it. It is extremely cheap. If you use it, do not bother turning the attached handle to reel in a fish, as it will just snap in half at the neck. The software itself looks cool, but the fishing pole is truly just for show.

Great fun especially with the rod and reel! Challenging with the larger fish, but challenges keep it interesting.

Would suggest buying the game without the pole. Not a game for a kid. It was way to boring for him
