Red Dead Redemption 2 features an immersive world with a variety of activities for players. Fishing is one such activity. There are over 200 species of fish in the game, with many rarities. But the ultimate prize for anglers is to catch a legendary fish.
What are Legendary Fish in RDR2
Red Dead Redemption 2’s legendary fish are the most rare and sought-after type of fish. They can be found in various bodies of water throughout the map. A player must have the right equipment, bait, location, and skills to catch a legendary fish. Once they have caught it, they can either sell it to a vendor to make a lot of money, get a unique item, or complete a mission.
How to prepare for Legendary Fishing with RDR2
Make sure you have the right equipment
Legendary fish in RDR2 require special equipment because they are more difficult to catch than regular fish. A lure that is specific to the fish species and location must be used by a player. It is best to buy and equip the right fishing rod to catch each legendary fish. A novice rod might not be strong enough to reel in the leviathan in one stroke.
Learn about the best fishing spots
Legendary fish in RDR2 are only available in certain areas. Knowing where to find them is crucial. Players will not waste time searching for the wrong place if they have the right information before embarking on a fishing expedition. It is better to get information from knowledgeable NPCs, or to note the relevant clues at each place.
Learn about the lure and bait options
Every legendary fish in RDR2 requires a particular type of lure or bait. Using the wrong lure can severely limit a player’s chances to catch the fish. For example, only swamp or lake lures will work for the legendary largemouth bass, while river lures will work well for the legendary river sturgeon. The best way to catch fish is to know the requirements for the lure and bait.
Legendary Fish Locations in RDR2
The most important factor in fishing is the location of legendary fish. There are five states where you can find different legend fish in RDR2. These include West Elizabeth, Lemoyne and New Hanover. Here are some of the legendary fish players can catch:
Legendary Northern Pike –Lake Isabella, Ambarino
Lake Isabella, located at the northern tip of Ambarino, is home to the Legendary Northern Pike. The lure bait is a special lure bait that lures fish into the lake.
Legendary Bluegill, Flat Iron Lake, New Hanover
Flat Iron Lake, Northeastern New Hanover, has been known for having a Legendary Bluegill. Catches are best made with a smaller boat so that you can pinpoint the depth and use cheese or bread for bait.
Legendary Redfin Pickerel – Stillwater Creek, New Hanover
Redfin Pickerel is found in Stillwater Creek, Northeastern New Hanover. It can be easily caught by a special lure bait that is used at the deeper end.
Challenges and Missions in Catching Legendary Fish in RDR2
