Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is an evolution for sports fishing games, adding new technologies and simulations to deliver an immersive angling experience.

Dovetail Games are thrilled to announce their new partnership with B.A.S.S., the worldwide authority on bass fishing, to create the biggest bass fishing video game ever made, Bassmaster Fishing 2022.

Scott Martin, professional angler and host of ‘The Scott Martin Challenge,’ is working closely with Dovetail Games to help create this exciting new simulation title and will be featured prominently throughout the game and its career modes.  Martin’s story of joining the B.A.S.S. tour and fulfilling his family’s legacy is well known in the fishing world and soon players will be able to see if they have what it takes to become a bass master.

More information about the new technology and features being added to Bassmaster Fishing 2022 to enhance immersion and deliver an authentic angling experience will be announced in the coming months.

With authenticity being at the core of Bassmaster Fishing 2022 the development team has spent considerable effort in bringing the real-life anglers to the virtual world, accurately recreating them with in-game models capturing everything including their hair, facial features, and body shape.

And just like in real life, each of the playable anglers will have access to a selection of equipment from real-world sponsors for maximum immersion.

In addition to the roster of professional anglers, players can create their own custom angler to challenge the pros in the hopes of becoming the next Bassmaster Classic Champion! 

The full lineup of Bassmaster anglers includes: 

  1. Scott R. Martin: From Clewiston, Florida, Scott R. Martin brings his highly successful brand of bass fishing to the Bassmaster Series. Scott is a seven-time FLW Tour Champion and a two-time Gold Medal Winner, don’t overlook Scott.  
  2. Hank Cherry: Joining the team from Lincolnton, North Carolina, is the two-time back-to-back Bassmaster Classic Champion, Hank Cherry.  
  3. Carl Jocumsen: The first ever Australian angler to qualify for the Bassmaster Elite Series, Carl Jocumsen joins the Bassmaster Fishing 2022 pro angler team.  
  4. John Crews: A Bassmaster Series veteran, John Crews from Salem, Virginia joins the team. With over 200 Bassmaster tournaments under his belt, John is a force to be reckoned with. 
  5. Scott Canterbury: 2019 Angler of the year winner from Odenville, Alabama: Scott Canterbury. Scott’s experience in Bassmaster makes him a great pro to play as in Bassmaster Fishing 2022.  
  6. Stetson Blaylock:  Stetson Blaylock from Benton, Arkansas joins the Bassmaster Fishing 2022 pro line up. With an Elite Series win on his record, Stetson is not to be messed with on the water. 
  7. Takumi Ito:  Recent winner of the 2021 St. Lawrence River Event from Chiba, Japan: Takumi Ito. If Takumi’s enthusiasm doesn’t make him a top pick, then his stats surely will. 
  8. Jeff Gustafson:  From Keewatin, Canada, and a 2021 Elite Series winner on the Tennessee River, we have Jeff Gustafson who joins the Bassmaster Fishing 2022 team.  
  9. Buddy Gross:  From Chickamauga, Georgia, one of the in-game venues, Buddy Gross is a playable angler. Consider Buddy when picking a pro angler and see if home advantage comes into play when fishing Lake Chickamauga! 
  10. Skylar Hamilton:  Skylar Hamilton from Dandrige, Tennessee joins the team! Skylar has plenty of experience on the water, an Elite Series win and multiple top 10 finishes within the Elite Series, Skylar Hamilton will be sure to challenge the leaderboards. 

The developer is accepting closed alpha sign-ups for anglers who cannot wait to get their hands on the game.

Bassmaster Fishing 2022 is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) in Fall 2021.
