OverviewEdit

The game offers three different modes to the player: Tournament, Practice and King Fish. In the last mode, the player picks a region and a timeframe: morning, noon or evening. When a game starts, the player has to choose one of the five baits available. Before throwing the line, the player can move left or right on the surrounding area. Once the line is thrown, the screen switches to an underwater view. The player can slowly move the bait around in an attempt to catch a bass. When one takes the bait, the player has to rapidly turn the lever on the fishing rod console to bring it out of the water.
