Red Dead 2 Legendary Fishing Guide And Locations
Created by Matt Espineli on
When shooting deers, robbing trains, and hunting for hidden treasure proves arduous, sometimes it's nice to sit back, relax, and do a little fishing in Red Dead Redemption 2. After a while, you're likely to get pretty good at it. But after a dozen successful catches, chances are you're getting curious about the bigger fish out there. The ones the most worth setting out your line for.
Lucky for you, there are plenty of Legendary fish to catch, but you can't just set up shop at any ordinary lake to find them. There are special locations all around the world where you can catch Legendary fish. You first discover the existence of Legendary fish in the Stranger mission called "A Fisher of Fish" when you're given a map by Jeremy Gill, the man fishing on the pier of the northeast shore of Flat Iron Lake.
When you find a Legendary fishing spot, it'll automatically get marked on your map. But if you've yet to happen upon these locations yourself, we've got you covered. In this feature, we highlight all of the Legendary fish locations, as well as some basic tips on how to catch them.
Out of the 14 total Legendary fish locations, we've gathered the the first 10, which are the safest to see for folks who may have not gotten far into the game. We'll be posting the rest at a later date, so make sure to check back later. You can refer to the screenshot of the map above as a reference to the general locations of each fish, but chances are you have this already and want the specifics. In which case, click ahead!
For a full examination on how to properly fish, we suggest you check out our Red Dead 2 fishing guide. If you're curious about guides concerning other subjects, check out out our features highlighting all the tips you should know before playing and things the game doesn't tell you. We also have guides on more specific subjects, like top horse breeds and fishing. Though, if you want to have some extra fun instead, be sure to read our feature detailing the game's cheat codes.
