"Rapala Pro Fishing" is a video game released for the PlayStation2 (PS2) on August 31, 2004. It allows players to pursue all sorts of fish, ranging from trout to salmon, with various fishing poles and boats, in areas ranging from Arkansas to Minnesota. Winning the game requires beating all 22 tournaments. Getting to The Catfish Hunt, which is the 22nd tournament in the game, means you have to beat all of the 21 tournaments that came before it first.
