Special lures in RDR2 are a necessary tool / consumable in the game. It’s necessary to get special lures in Red Dead Redemption 2 in order to catch legendary fish. There are three types of special lures in Red Dead 2: swamp, river, and lake. You have to use them depending on where the legendary fish you’re fishing for lives. As it turns out, there seems to be only one location where you can get the special lures. So, here’s our RDR2 Special Lure Locations guide to show you exactly where to find special lake, river, and swamp lures.
How to Get Special RDR2 Legendary Fish River, Lake, Swamp Lures?
To get the special RDR 2 Legendary Fish lures, you’re going to have to buy them in a store. The only store that sells them, as far as we know, is Bait and Tackle, a shop near Lagras, Lemoyne. We’re going to get into the minutiae of where exactly to find the store below. Either way, the Bait and Tackle sells all three types of RDR2 special lures: Lake, River, and Swamp.
Now, there are two things to keep in mind here. One, every single special lure is going to cost you $20 a pop. At least they all cost the same. Two, you can apparently hold only one of each lure in your inventory at any given time. So, make every special lure in RDR2 count. Not only are they a bit on the expensive side, but, if you fail at catching a legendary fish, back you go to Lemoyne for another special lure.
Where to Find Red Dead Redemption 2 Legendary Fish Special Lake, River, Swamp Lures?
To find the special lake, river, and swamp lures in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re going to have to visit a specific vendor. More precisely, you’re looking for the Bait and Tackle shop. This location is in Bayou Nwa, in Lemoyne. Go to the west shore of lake Lagras in the Bayou Nwa area. There’s a small settlement there, hiding in the misty marsh. The Bait and Tackle store is on the very edge of the lake; it even has a pier leading into the water that you can fish off of.
