TNN Bass Tournament of Champions is a Super Nintendo Entertainment System and Mega Drive/Genesis fishing video game based on the defunct Nashville Network (now known as Spike). It is known in Japan as Larry Nixon's Super Bass Fishing (ラリー・ニクソン スーパー・バス・フィッシング?).[2] and was endorsed by professional fisherman Larry Nixon as well as the Nippon Bass Club. TNN Bass Tournament of Champions was followed by the sequel TNN Outdoors Bass Tournament '96.


The game features an overhead view.

The object of the game is to catch as much large bass as possible so that the player can advance through the tournaments and eventually win the championship. The player has from sunrise to sunset to fish, thus giving him the necessary time to develop strategies related to participating in a virtual fishing derby. Changes in the season and the weather will try to impede the player's progress as he attempts to win the championship.

Other fish (besides bass) can be accidentally caught as well, but they will not count towards the final score. Only bass will count towards the player's progression throughout the game.
