Look at the Legendary Fish Map that Jeremy Gill gave you.

Now that you have it, these fish will be marked on your map, too, once you get close to the correct area. Check out the comparison between your world map, and the paper map, to find them, or click on the individual fish pages to see where to find them.

4. Catch the Fish[edit]

Once you’re in the right place, use the lure we suggested. The Legendary Fish in that area should be the first to bite. It will be a hard battle.

Check out How to Fish for tips on for how to nab it.

5.

Deliver the Fish[edit]

Once you’ve caught a Legendary Fish, store it on your horse and immediately head to the nearest post office. Keeping the catch on your horse, you can mail it to Jeremy Gill.

After 24 hours, you’ll receive your reward.

Make sure to be incredibly careful when transporting the fish. If it falls off your horse after a tumble, you’ll probably have to reload your save to get it back.

Once you’ve delivered every fish, you’ll finally be able to hunt the Legendary Catfish with Jeremy Gill.
