A so-so fishing experience - the good, the bad and the ugly

Summary: Warning... before you play this game you need A LOT of patience. In the beginning, as you are learning the ropes, the fish will more likely ignore your lures rather than bite at the line. In a half hour of fishing, you may catch 2-3 fish, if you're lucky. The graphics above water are pretty good for being a 5 year old game. Below the surface, they are fair. The fish try to jump when hooked which causes my TV screen to go into hyper-active mode and spazz out...
Summary: The game leaves you with little instruction. It's just like the real thing. If someone dropped you by a lake with a bunch of fishing gear and a boat, but offered you no instruction as to what works well and how, you would be playing this game. It's slow, there is no action and the weather is mediocre.
Summary: Look at the "Product Features" provided: --Buy with confidence! --Rapala Trophies X360 Wow what a description. This is one boring product. I expected it to be as good as the xbox "pro fishing challenge"-nope. I expected it to be a learning tool for fishing--nope. I expected it to have different lures in addition to Rapala (excellent product by the way) such as spinners, soft and spoon lures---nope. I just use the free fishing option.
