My dad used to have it on his old computer.
It was an ASCII (I think) game, or at least the graphics were VERY minimal. It was from a top down perspective and the main focus was on your boat. It did have colors.

I remember using the mouse to click on the areas arounding your boat and that would be where you casted. There was no reeling of any sort, just click to cast.

I think shutting down geocities is a huge mistake. There is a LOT of information there.

At least the web archive should have most of it:

Except, for me, a lot of the images aren't loading.

Actually it was Bass Class by Olsen Outdoors 1992. But it was on the same page.
It wasn't ascii, but the boat sure looked like it.

That is some serious necroposting there my friend. But I guess it is important to f/u! ;)
