TNN Outdoors Bass Tournament '96 is a sequel to the fishing video game TNN Bass Tournament of Champions. It was released in 1996 to an exclusively North American audience.


Players must use the correct lure in order to catch the heavyweight bass. Employing a scientific approach towards fishing can be useful in situations like these.

While the graphics were slightly enhanced, the goal of the game is primarily the same. Rural and suburban teenage boys were primarily the target audience of this electronic video game.

Due to the game's Sega Genesis-only release, Super Nintendo players were denied a true sequel to TNN Bass Tournament of Champions. The reason of not releasing a port to the Super NES was the that Nintendo 64 was coming out shortly after the game was released. Famous settings used in this game include Lake Erie, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior.[2] Other things added to this game are temperature, time, wind speed, and weather.[2]

All the fishing that is done on Lake Erie is done entirely on the western part of the lake in the Michigan/Ohio area. Everything can affect the player's performance; including the weather, the season, the time of day and even the strength of the wind. All games start at 7:30 AM local time and end at sunset when all boats must dock in for the weigh-in ceremonies.[3]
