Default Fishing games

Ridiculous question, I know... but does anyone know of any half-decent fishing games for any system? I was looking at The Strike for 360 and it seemed like a cool idea, but given that fishing games really have never even ranked up to the fishing mini-game in Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, I've lost hope. Sega Bass Fishing is included on the Dreamcast classics collection that came out recently, but it's like 13 years old.

I can't help you unfortunately, but I played a fishing game with people over at GuG and it was a blast. We had tournaments and everything. It was just a ton of fun. Enough competition that it held interest but so casual. I can't remember the game though. I even bought the fishing rod Ended up not using it much.

I want to say it was one of Rapala's and I assume it was on the 360. Kind of old now but it was decent.

If it had a fishing rod controller for 360 it must have been Bass Pro Shops: The Strike. I never tried it, but it got a lot of attention in the magazines for the attention they paid to the rod controller. Then again, I'm not sure if there were others with a controller for Xbox. It looked pretty cool, anyway.

I always wanted a good fishing game for my iPhone. Seems like an ideal game to play when you have 5 minutes to play here and there. I haven't seen one that doesn't have poor reviews.

Edit: OMG, just noticed how ironic posting in this thread with this avatar and sig. Awesome.

Actually, I forgot the fishing tournament was originally at my old site that I ran. It then moved to GuG when my site fell through.

It was the original Xbox as well. So I can't help you. Still can't find the name of the game (I even searched GuG).
