Fishing Master was a pleasant surprise, even though the multiple fishing with others stinks. It's not a fishing sim like Championship Bass or Trophy Bass 4 are on the PC. It's not realistic at all as far as some of the fish you catch ie the man-fish or the mother-in-law fish. Alot of humor going on here. But the realism is in casting, reeling, and gosh darn it, it is just plain FUN. I have enjoyed it and I have attained the rank of Ultimate Master having completed all of Grandpa's tasks, all of the tournaments and have filled out all of the fishing charts. I even started over again.
Sega Bass Fishing got wonderful reviews on Amazon, that's why I bought it, but you are limited in where you can cast, you have 4 lure types to choose: floating, shallow crank, spinner for medium depth, and worm for bottom. I was disappointed. The fish seem to react and bite realistically, but I found the reeling in to be sluggish on response of the Wii.
The only other game that I haven't tried but would like to is HOOKED...if anyone has had any experience with these or others would enjoy finding out.
Although far from perfect, but lots of fun, Fishing Master is my best choice so far. I understand that there is one in the works that will be for online tournaments. That would be a blast.
