Fishing Derby - Screenshot

DescriptionSubmit Description
In David Crane's Fishing Derby your objective is to catch more sunfish than your opponent. But it's not just between you and the other fisherman, as a big, black shark is lurking just below the surface, waiting to steal your catch! You can go for the small fish near the water's surface for less points (but more fish), or cast your line to the very bottom for the big haul, with the added risk of the shark stealing your catch away. Unfortunately, there is no Activision patch for this game. (Contributed by panda_racer)
