Fishing Video Games?

10 posts in this topic

It doesn't beat being on the water for sure; but there are plenty of times when the ice is too thin to icefish, and for those of us who've given up on icefishing- espically on a record cold winter with no heater and nothing but a hand auger.

Add to that days with storms in the forecast or days where the fish well.. just ain't biting. You have to do something to get the edge off, right?

So over the years I've amassed a collection of fishing games; mostly console games since the problem with PC games is that you can't run them anymore after 5 years because they are too old to work with the newer hardware without a lot of tweaking, which is more headaches then it's worth. I'll list my PC games here as well, but sadly for that reason, all but one of my PC games are no longer playable under windows XP except under an emulator which requires a little effort, and it's much easier to just pop a cartridge into the old SNES or Genesis without the wait.

So without further adue, my list of fishing game geekery. Mind you, being on a limited budget means I can't buy a lot of the newer fishing games; which means there is still a lot I'm missing from this list.

Phew! Sad to say, there are still plenty of games I do not own, in-spite of my efforts. I gave up on trying to collect PC games as that is impossible- there are too many of them and very few of them will run under windows XP or Vista.

As far as console games go- to my knowledge I am not missing any US released game from the NES up to the Ninetendo 64. I am missing a whole bunch from the PS2 and a few from the original Xbox. I also own a Wii and an Xbox 360- but haven't got any fishing games for them yet; I'm trying to finish up collecting the older games I'm missing first.

Feel free to reply with a list of what fishing games you own, or have played and enjoyed!

I’ve played a good portion of those, and my favorite is Pro Fishing Challenge for the Original Xbox (w fishing controller) followed closely by the Sega Bass Fishing for the Dreamcast.

We could use a good one for the 360, but sadly the developers are rarely interested in that genre.

I only have the fishing controller for the Dreamcast; the Playstation 1/2, Xbox and N64 fishing controllers are harder to come by.

Many of the Wii fishing games come bundled with a fishing controller to slide the nunchaku and wii remote into, or the third party ones are a dime a dozen. Sadly the games themselves all hover around $50, minus Sega Bass fishing, which is a reprint of a game I allready own for the Dreamcast.

The 360 has a few fishing games: They made Alaskan Adventures for the 360 as well as 2 Rapala Fishing games, the Orignal one and Tournament Frenzy 2009- which is the new one. I'll pick up one of these when they get a little bit cheaper.

I remember playing black bass and the game I really liked was Bass Landing with the fishing controller for the PS2. I think I landed a 20 lber - LOL

I still need to figure out how to make the Black Bass NES theme into a ringtone; short of pumping up the volume on my TV speaker and recording it through the cell phone, since the quality is just not there.

When I get bored enough; I'll figure it out.

The best fishing game ive played was Sega Bass Fishing Duel for the PS2 . Good gameplay, lots of different game modes and you could play split screen against a buddy. Hard to find but a good buy.

My favorite used to be Sega Bass Fishing and Sega Marine Fishing for the Dreamcast. It was just a really good solid fishing game. Plus using that sega fishing rod just made it that much better.

    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
