A Fisher of Men is a mission in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Mission overview

Arthur does a favor for Abigail and takes Jack out on a fishing trip.


To start this mission, the player must talk to Abigail at camp. In the morning, Arthur will head to Jack and greet him. He will be playing in the grass. As he gets his fishing pole, the player will mount his horse and lift him up so they can go. Jack will ask Arthur to return his Penny Dreadful storybook, left in the campsite near Blackwater. After getting there and catching two fish, Jack will show the player a necklace he made out of flowers, and two Pinkertons will interrupt you. They want Dutch, and they tell Arthur how they killed Mac. Luckily, they leave soon after they came. And so does the player. Arthur mounts his horse and takes Jack back to camp at Horseshoe Overlook, back to Abigail. After returning Jack to her, Arthur will head over to Dutch and discuss the Pinkertons, Milton and Ross. Dutch will instruct everyone to do nothing, and to stay calm.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • After arriving at the river, catch a fish within 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  • Complete within 7 minutes and 20 seconds.
