Cannot Equip Fishing Pole (at end-game part when Story complete) *BEWARE SPOILERS IF YOU HAVENT COMPLETED STORY YET*

Hi all, so I have the game 90%+ completed now (total completion). And now Im hunting all the legendary animals and fish.
 

Spoiler

 

Problem I have is that since I've become John Marston I cannot fish anywhere. When I was Arthur I had fished about 5 times but never really bothered with it until now.


 

What I am doing so far is going to the coasts (or very edges of lakes) holding LB, then RB over to my hunting tab. I then move RightStick to the Fishing Rod (note: Its greyed out all the time),  but there is a note saying "The Fishing Rod cannot be equipped here".

 

I've tried at least 50 different spots in total around several different lakes/rivers/etc. Always have this result.

 

Really annoying as was looking forward to this part of the game. Anyone have any idea what I'm missing or doing wrong? thanks

How can anyone caring about spoliers read past the SPOILERS IN THE TITLE BEWARE ??!??!?1

People may see the end of your title before reading what you actually typed.

Most people read in chunks of text, not one word at a time. The entire title registered to me at once, as I'm sure it will others. Please remove the spoiler before more people catch it.

Dude the first chunk was " * SPOILERS IN THE TITLE BEWARE* ". Then there was another chunk, then the spolier at the end of the sentence. anyway like i said I changed it in case it does accidentally spoil story for people. Problem is that now, someone might click who hasnt finished the game and will read the full question and might end up getting a spolier.

perhaps a mod could help by adding that? I am not expert in using these types of forums.....

 

...as an aside to this conversation, does anyone have a clue about how I can use the Fishing Rod?

He changed the title, it says spoiler in the title so people shouldn't click on this thread in fear of SPOILERS...

Just in case someone reads this in future. I fixed it by reseting my xbox one cache https://support.rockstargames.com/articles/115015352427/Clearing-the-Cache-on-your-Xbox-One-console

But that's the only one lmao

I think this is another one of those things that could be prevented by completely exiting the game when you're done playing instead of just turning off the system. The "instant on" is a convenient feature, but it causes a lot of weird bugs.

Bingo!  That clears the cache as described in the link for the Xbox.  For PS4 you have to hold the R1/L1 buttons after the first splash screen to get the darkness/screen adjustment options, then the cache is cleared.
