I noticed this game was excluded for some reason. Surely there could at least be a high score table for the largest of the 7 said available fish. Your current largest catch for each fish type can be easily accessed from the main menu at any time if you don't delete your save data.

I think that it's a rather straight forward game for score competition, Japanese exclusive or not.

I don't want to exclude any game on highscores, but I need to understand what's to going on in the game to add highscore tables for it... There's so many stats in the game that it's not so easy to determine which highscore tables need to be created for the game. Any help would be appreciated!

I suppose I'll have to play through the entire game so I can translate all fish names/species to english, unless you wish to list them in their original Japanese text to avoid confusion since non-Japanese speaking members will still only be familiar with the japanese text/characters that represents each fish name anyway.
サ-モン = Salmon
Maybe most folks won't know that, but they will know the high score they have listed for "サ-モン". ;)

First off, there's basic tournament mode. when you win a tournament, you can see your max length of all combined caught fish (combined length is how you win), and also it lists the largest fish caught during said winning tournament session (not how you win, but nice info in case it's larger than the largest said species you've caught in free-play.)
I don't really think largest individual catch in tourney-mode should matter in highscore ranking, since it doesn't matter at all for winning the tourney.
You can decide on this one, KR155E.

Free Play mode: In this area you have unlimited time to just fish as much as you like. From the title screen, you can check your largest catch of any species caught during freeplay. As you play more areas, more fish are unlocked and available in the freeplay area (You CAN catch unlocked fish, but they appear much less often). Since the timing to set the hook for each fish species is different, this is the most versatile fishing mode. For example, since you wouldn't know if you had a Black Bass or a Salmon biting at your hook, you have to go with the flow and attempt to set the hook at your discretion, often losing the fish. So, the more fish you unlock, the harder free-play gets.
It has come to my attention that there are 18 fish slots available in the largest catch ranking, so I guess there are a whole 18 different types of fish to catch in this game.


Time Attack mode*
I haven't played this much yet, I'll report back on it in the next day or so. I believe you can only play time-attack for the 6 basic fishing areas, thus only for the main 6 different fish species available at the start of the game. ???

Not to nitpick, but "サーモン" is salmon, if you use the text posted.

No worries, but that's exactly what I said.
サ-モン = Salmon.
サ-モン translates to Salmon.

Right, I was just saying you didn't use an actual long vowel mark, just a dash. So if the text you posted was going to be used on the high score page, I just wanted to make sure that little thing was fixed.

Exactly, that's all I wanted to fix.
