Dustin Spencer from Capsule Computers writes: "Fishing games have never really hit mainstream, making the brand one of the most niche markets in the industry. Sure, there have been successes like Sega Black Bass, but a good number of us just pass by the cover with the trout on it when we are walking by. Rapala fans know what they are getting with the franchise, and Activision want to make sure more is delivered on the Wii U this time around with Rapala Pro Bass Fishing. Now utilizing the Gamepad instead of the standard rod and reel bundles, this title looks to change the way we fish on consoles with a some interesting features. Does it land a big one, or should this fishing sim be sent back to the stream it came from?"
