Spearing game for the Wii

Recommended Posts

I was thinking while i was wrapping the kids'Wii Christmas present last night...why isn't there a spearing/fishing game? that'd be the coolest thing to pass time till ice. it could incorporate strategy of location, decoy selection, time of day, motion, and all the other factors...i dunno, just seemed like a cool idea.

EA Sports...you listening??? wink

I made a computer ice fishing game in high school in 1976. This was on the old teletype machine and you bought time from a central computer in Minneapolis and dialed in with a modem. It was designed such that you would get more bites if you chose lighter line and jigged more often. With the lighter lines though you had a better chance of breaking off if the fish was bigger. If I would have pursued a programming career which I almost did, I would probably have been retired by now.

i always thought it'd be a cool too to have a spear house at the MDAA booth where a flat panel tv (floor mounted) would be in place of the spear hole. when a feller/kid would walk in to inspect what's going on inside the house,they'd see a recording of a actual spearing footage and see what it's like to spear and see the sights of what's under the lake.

this is of course after they play a game of Wii Spearing '11 cool

And who would buy the replacement TV when I got excited and threw my spear through your plasma? grin

Would you have to tip the Wii remote once in a while to drink a beer? Isn't EA Sports saying "If its in the game, its in the game".

    • Careful, man.  Any such suggestions get criticized pretty heavily.  I came here around this time last year and posted something similar, and I hadn't been on this forum for quite some time.  My question was met by one of the mods with mock & ridicule.  But he thought that was okay as long as he put a smiley face or an lol after every sentence.  Funny, funny guy.  No wonder it's a ghost town around here.  Too bad, this was a must-read destination back in the day.
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
    • Congrats on the bird.
    • Assume you were in a blind since you are bow hunting.  That is a long time ...  active bird or no bird.   Very Nice.
    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
