— In-game description

Fishing is a minigame in Wii Play.


In Fishing, the player controls a floating hand and fishing rod with the pointer. The object of the game is to catch fish in a pond by lowering the fishing rod into the water, and having the fish bite the rod. Pulling back on the Wii Remote pulls the fish out of the water, and gains a set number of points. The game runs for a minute [needs verification], and then the score is tallied. Moving the Wii Remote adjusts the position of the fishing rod in the pond.

Different kinds of fish yield different set amounts of points, and also have slightly different behavior. Every so often, a random type of fish (excluding Small Fry) is selected as the "Bonus" fish, and catching it during this time will yield double points.
