A game for those of you itching to do some fishing...

Recommended Posts

This winter has been pretty brutal for pretty much everyone... most of you have had it much worse than I have, at least I've been able to actually fish now and then on days that are actually warm. Not that I'm rubbing that in or anything (okay fine maybe I am, just a bit :P). Luckily, there exists a free game/fishing simulator for both PS4 and PC that can help you to reduce your cabin fever and stir-craziness while you wait for the ice to thaw and the snow to stop. It's called Fishing Planet. Now I will say it is not the easiest game to advance through, it's one of those types where they offer it for free because there are incentives to spending some money on the game because some things like baits, poles, lures, etc, are difficult to get and may take a while. They do offer some expansions packs too which don't look half bad for the price but I try to earn my stuff personally. I'm hardly an expert at it, but it is fun, and somewhat accurate as far as how you can work artificial baits and whatnot. I've been playing for about a week now and it's good for these days where I can't get out and do much due to cold, wind, or rain that never stops. One downside: it makes me want to go fishing even more! :o

 

So for PC, you just go to fishingplanet.com and looks like you can play directly from there without a download, though I haven't tried that yet since I prefer my PS4 controller. For PS4, if you don't have a PSN account, make one. Connect your PS4 to internet, log in to the PSN network via Account Settings, then just download it directly onto your PS4 from there.

 

Anyway... just a thought for those of you poor souls who live in ice buckets. You can catch a lot of fish on it, from catfish, to carp, to trout, to bass. Some people catch some really big fish on there but it really is bait and luck dependent.

I'll give it a try.  I miss playing some of the old fishing games.  I loved Black Bass on the NES and Bass Masters Classic on SNES.

Ha, the old games were great... I remember I had this one that I think was on SNES? That had a "superlure". It was a donut with sprinkles. Lol. It attracted so many fish that during the underwater view I used to like to make them chase it around until I could let that one big fish bite into it.
