RDR2 Legendary Fish
To start the quest for legendary fish in Red Dead Redemption 2, head to the shore of Flat Iron Lake, where you’ll meet a person called Gill at Gill’s Landing. You can find Gill at the location shown below. Note that you can not capture legendary fish until you go to Gill.
Once you have met Gill and started his quest, he will give you the map of legendary fish. You can see the map below. However this map only gives a rough view of the locations.
RDR2 Legendary Fish: The necessary bait
In all, there are 14 legendary fish. If you manage to catch all of them, you will complete a Red Dead Redemption 2 challenge.
In addition, since legendary fish are heavier, expect more difficult fishing.
In addition, you will need to buy baits from a merchant:
- special bait for lake
- as well as a special bait for the river
- special bait for swamp
Do not expect to catch legendary fish with a traditional bait. Then you have to choose the right bait according to your environment.
RDR2 Legendary Fish: How to fish?
Once you’ve spotted a corner with poiscaille, with swirls on the surface, equip yourself with your fishing rod. Then choose the right type of bait.
Once your bait is launched, it must be brought slowly by turning the right stick clockwise. Wait a bit, and if nothing bites, then try R2 / RT once to attract the fish (Attention: just once).
Once the legendary fish is caught, send it by mail.
