Trophy Bass is a fishing simulation. Choose your lure, reel, location, etc. and compete in the B.A.S.S. Masters tournament, star a career or just spend an afternoon at the lake of your choice. The game is played from a top-down "omniscient fisherman" perspective from where you hit the water and do whatever it takes to reel in everything in the water such as working the lure, to reeling in and out, etc. via mouse.
The game is fully sponsored by the B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society) and features a comprehensive how-to series of multimedia extras featuring strategies, definitions and profiles on every lure and fish included in the game, as well as advice from fishing pros.
