Players will not have the ability to go fishing right at the start of Red Dead Redemption 2 and will need to the progress through the adrenaline pumping action of the game’s story in order to unlock a quest that opens up fishing for you.

This particular quest that will unlock the ability for players to fish will be the Chapter 2 Red Dead Redemption 2 Pouring Forth Oil -  III Quest. After you have spoken to John Marston, everyone’s favorite main character of Red Dead Redemption, you will have a new quest icon for Abigail Roberts that will be unlocked afterwards. Red Dead Redemption 2 players will be tasked with taking her son fishing in the A Fisher of Men quest. This is where the ability to go fishing will be unlocked.

This quest will provide a tutorial for learning how to fish in the Rockstar Games’ title. You will need to catch two fish with Jack in order to complete the A Fisher of Men.

After this mission has been completed, players will now have the ability to make their way to any water location and fish to their heart’s content in order to collect food and crafting items. You will need all of the energy and supplies you can gather from fishing in order to survive the dangerous world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

In order to find your fishing pole and begin to fish you anytime you want you will need to hold down L1 or LB to activate the wheel feature where all of the trusty weapons and tools owned by Arthur Morgan can be found. Following the action of opening the wheel feature, you will need to use R1 or RB to take a gander at the items section of the wheel and make your way to the hunting section. Use L2 or LT and R2 or RT to go through all of your hunting items until you come across your fishing pole. With your Red Dead Redemption 2 fishing pole having been selected, use L1 or LB to select the bait that you would like to use.
