About this product
- Product InformationIf you don't have the time or inclination to go to the lake, but you feel like catching a few fish, you may want to try Super Black Bass, a fishing title that lets you compete for the prestigious title of Super Bass Champion. There are five different types of fish that you can catch: blue gill, rainbow trout, catfish, northern pike and, of course, black bass.
Super Black Bass plays by the rules of professional tournament fishing. Hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and you can't be late to the weigh-in or you will be penalized. There is a five bass maximum allowed in the livewell, and you must avoid No Fishing areas, such as the spawning pool and the dock.
There are four different tournaments in which to compete: Local Amateur Tournament, Amateur Bass Championship, Pro Bass Circuit and Super Bass Championship. Your goal in each tournament is to have the highest accumulative bass weight.
To catch a fish, you must choose lure type and color, set the hook, cast your line (overhand or flip) and wait for a nibble. Then you must reel in the line, which can consist of reeling quickly, swinging the rod strongly, pulling the rod up, thumbing the line, reeling in instantly, cutting the line and more. When casting a line, you view the game from a first person perspective, peering over the shoulder of the onscreen angler. When piloting the boat (in order to find a good fishing spot), retrieving the lure or fighting the fish, the viewpoint switches to overhead.
You have in your tacklebox eight lures from which to choose: pencil bait, popper, swisher, frog, spinnerbait, crankbait, rubber jug and plastic worm. There are two types of fishing points, surface and underwater. Onscreen data provides information such as line length, lure depth, line tension, fish strength, angler strength, weather conditions, water temperature. There is even a fish finder, which is an electronic device that uses sonar to detect fish.
Super Black Bass features four different lakes: Skywater Lake, which is a small, shallow mountain lake; Clear Lake, which is large and manmade; Lake Murphy, an old, shallow lake with murky waters; and Bluestone Lake, a wide, field lake with docks and bridges. A password feature lets you save your progress.

Challenging at first but fun the whole time
Super Black Bass may be the most fun I ever had playing a game about fishing. I remember playing this game when I was younger and after buying it now that I am much older, I wondered if the game would hold up to my feelings of nostalgia. I can so with certainty that the game was every bit as fun as I can remember.
Now, with that being said, this game is also every bit as challenging as I remember. This is not a game that you can just pick up and expect to excel at instantly. The learning curve can be a little steep but the payoff is great. Even trying to figure out how to play the game is some of the charm of the game.
The game does have its drawbacks. Besides the difficulty, the game can be a bit time consuming. The time it takes to complete a stage of the fishing tournament can take a while and you need to finish a stage in order to get the password that is needed to resume the game (instead of saving the game like newer games, this game has a password system that you can input at the title screen that will let you resume where you left off at when you start the game again). However, this can be shortened a little by having the option to check in early. While this may be a good option on occasion, it also seems that whenever you check in early, you always fall in the standings. You can be in first place when you check in by an exceptional margin then fall out of placing by the end of the day.
All-in-all, the game is fun and the good, at least in my opinion, far outweigh the bad and for the price this game usually goes for, this may be a nice game to take a small risk on. You never know, it could end up as one of your favorites. And not just your favorite fishing game or favorite sporting game but perhaps even one of your favorite games for the SNES.Read full review

This classic is very entertaining.
It's an oldie but a goodie. It runs well and this classic is very entertaining. It doesn't have the best graphics, but it's good for the time. This bit of nostalgia can keep you entertained for hours.

greatest fishing game i have ever played.
iv always loved this game since i was young ,but did not ever buy it .and i would play this games for days and never want to take it back to rental store.
but im older and i want so i bought it,cause i still have my 15 year old snes.
the gameplay is perfect and easy to get the hang of.
there are many different typs of fish to catch, and a handfull of different places to fish.
the graphics are what u would expect from snes which is 16 bit. so its not over the top but the gamplay will have you hooked.
great game for any super nintendo junkie

Super Black Bass
An improvement on the original NES Black Bass. This game takes some patience and a little getting used to, but the controls are simple and easy to figure out. It's one of those games that you can put on pause and come back later to keep playing.
With several lakes to fish and a password to take you back to them this is a fun basic fishing game.

Almost as frustrating as real fishing
Super Black Bass is almost as frustrating as actually going fishing. It is so hard to catch fish on this game its crazy. The thing that is really frustrating is you can never find the fish. You can ride around and listen for you fish finder but when you open the screen the fish are never there. Or you can go in some of the cover, like rocks, weeds, reeds, or spillways. Then you see a lot of fish but they are all small. So then you squint your eyes and barley make out a larger fish on laying on the bottom. So you cast you line out. OOOPPPPS. You didn't slow you line down at the end of your cast and you line is tangled up! Try again. You cast again. This time your lure gets hung on a reed. You have to cut your line! So you replace your lure and cast again. This time it lands right next to the fish. Nothing. He doesn't like your lure. You real it in and change lures about 5 times and finally you get him to come off the bottom of the lake. The fish acts like he is going to bite but then swims off and sinks back to the bottom of the lake. He doesn't like the color of the lure. So you change the color of the lure about 3 times. So now that you have the right color and right lure every little tiny fish in the lake wants your lure. So you finally hook the fish you're after, you fight him to the boat and find out he is not a Bass. He is a Trout or something. They look almost just alike in this game. So you throw the fish back and repeat the entire process about 4 times and finally find a big bass that seems interested. But again so does all the little fish, and they are much more aggressive that the big one is. So you accidentally hook a small fish. It fights like the devil but then you finally get it in the boat and the guy calls your fish a runt. Now the bigger fish wants no part of you. So you have to start all over. After a while you finally hook a big one. You fight the stupid fish for thirty minutes solid and right as your about to pull him into the boat he shakes the lure out of his mouth. (the fish on this game can do that when ever they want) So you have to start over again. You finally hook your lunker and real him in. Then the fish looks like a retarded beached whale on the preview screen. This game is for the really really patient. But if you are going to play this game you might as well actually go fishing. You probably wont get as angry. You will be better off trying to find Bassin's Black BassRead full review
