The Black Bass is a NES fishing game, developed by Hot-B and released in 1989. The objective is for the player to catch as many black bass as possible from sunrise to sunset.


The player may select a beginner's game or ranking game. A ranking game requires a password. From here, a player may select a location on the lake to start at and begin fishing. Simply tossing a lure out with the desired power will start the process. A fish can be lured in by moving the lure around and if it bites, then the player can try reeling it in.

Between rounds, the player can select from different types and colors of lures.


Hot-B released a sequel, Super Black Bass for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1992. The sequel featured similar play and improved graphics. There was also an NES sequel titled The Blue Marlin.
