Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

The player can encounter Jeremy fishing on the pier on which his house sits upon. Jeremy assumes the player is a fan, and asks if he would like an autograph or a photograph with him. After a short conversation, Jeremy asks the player to send him a number of large, rare fish that they are to catch, as long as they are at least twenty-four inches long and weigh at least ten pounds. He gives the player his card and a map, which pinpoints the locations of the legendary fish on the map.

After catching all of the legendary fish, Jeremy sends the player an invitation to his home in the mail. When the player arrives, Jeremy is excited to announce that he found a very large catfish in Río Bravo, and that he wants the protagonist to take a photograph of him catching it. John is hesitant, but finally agrees to help him.

The two reach the San Luis River, and Jeremy begins to fish, while telling the player about himself. John sets up his camera, and the two wait for the catfish. Bored, John quickly falls asleep.

When he wakes the next day, Jeremy is still standing with his fishing line in the water. Suddenly, the line is tugged, and Jeremy struggles before he is pulled, with immense force, into the river. Jeremy dies, and his hat and special spinner can be looted from the ground.

Mission appearances

Red Dead Redemption 2


  • Gill is the author of the numerous handbills about fishing lures that can be obtained by the player throughout the game.
  • Indicated by his conversation with players, Gill had been facing accusations for being a fraud, thus tried to prove himself by catching the Legendary Channel Catfish, which ultimately led to his death.
    • Considering that Gill, a supposed skilled fisherman, asked players to capture several legendary fish instead of capturing them himself, as well as his rather clumsy moves during fishing, these accusations might be not entirely baseless.
  • If visited in 1899, he will look the same in 1907, making him one of several characters to not visibly age in between the main campaign and the epilogue.
