Red Dead Redemption 2 How to Send Legendary Fish - Fisher of Fish Quest

How to send legendary fish in Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the things many players are having trouble with. During the Fisher of Fish quest, when you have to catch thirteen legendary fish, you’ll have to send each one to the quest give, Jeremy Gill. They’re so big they can’t fit in your satchel. Instead, they’re carried in horse cargo. You might run into trouble when trying to send them to Gill. If you do, our Red Dead Redemption 2 how to send legendary fish guide should help you.

How to send fish to Jeremy Gill?

Once you’ve caught your first legendary fish, you’ll want to send it to Jeremy immediately. The sooner you send it, the sooner you’ll get your reward. You’ll need to go to the nearest post office – most towns have one, and you can use map filters to find them.

Once you’re there, approach the counter and press right on the Dpad to open the screen used for sending mail. If the option happens to be greyed out, there are several things you could try. First of all, make sure you’ve inspected Jeremy Gill’s business card – it was added to your inventory when you talked to him. If that doesn’t help, try sending it with the fish in horse cargo, or in your arms – the former is the proper way, but there seems to be a bug there.

Finally, having a bounty might prevent you from using post offices in the area you’re wanted in. If you get to a post office and the counter is closed, you could try one in an area where you’re not wanted, or you could pay off your bounty by surrendering to the police (in case you’re wanted all over).

If you end up getting stuck at another point, you might want to check out some of the other guides we have. We've written about mysteries like the missing person Gavin, the Rhodes Gunsmith prisoner, the locked door at Valentine doctor. We also have instructional guides that show how to rob stores without getting bounty or where to sell jewelry and gold bars. If it's collectibles or key items you're after, we've found all the Penny Dreadful comic books, Chick's treasure map location, or that famous pipe for Dutch. Finally, if you don't care to explore the map yourself, you could take a look at our Watson's Cabin and Catfish Jackson's Homestead locations guides. In the latest Red Dead Online Moonshiners Update you'll have a chance to find Navy Revolver and Best Shack Locations.

    What if you catch the legendary fish, but on your way to the post office, you die or lose it? Is there any way to re-catch or find the legendary fish again? With the legendary bear pelt for example, it just automaticly goes to the trapper if you die with it.


    1. T

      You can go back to the spot and catch the fish again.

    Make sure you SAVE after catching any Legendary fish this will give you the added benefit of reloading your saved game if you lose it off your horse. That’s the only way I’ve found to be the safest, I found this out the hard way by dieing and losing my Legendary Bear Skin ?

      Well with the fish you just go back to the area where you died, if your lucky enough to remember where you died. Your in luck if you lose a legendary animal pelt cause it will automatically send it to the any of the trapper stands in the world.
