It may not be fishing season, but it’s shopping season, and the latter fact is something Activision and Cabela’s are well aware of, as the company has now shipped Cabela’s Monster Bass for the PlayStation 2. Cabela’s Monster Bass is the first Cabela’s fishing game ever created.
In Cabela’s Monster Bass, a $29.99 title, players take a journey through six of the hottest bass spots in the nation and compete in 14 tournament events. Their goal: reel in the biggest, most coveted species of trophy bass.
Cabela’s Monster Bass focuses on the most exciting part of fishing, drinking beer. Just kidding; it actually focuses on the adrenaliine-pumping reeling-in action. Using authentic Cabela’s fishing gear with hundreds of tackle and lure combinations, players set their sights on nine species of bass, including largemouth, smallmouth, spotted and striped. The game also includes 14 other trophy fish such as trout, salmon, catfish and walleye.
Cabela’s Monster Bass combines the use of real world strategies with actual fishing lake environments to allow fans of all types to land that prize and become the ultimate bass fisherman. You know, in a videogame sense.
