I will be reviewing Rapala Pro Bass Fishing for Xbox 360 this weekend, it was delivered to my office this morning, but as I’m home sick I had to asked my friend Phil to bring it to me. So it’s not here yet… It’s actually turned out for the best since I’ve been home sick and likely won’t be going outdoors this weekend it’s time to brew up some piping hot peppermint tea and get ready! More photos after the break.
