Fishing pole cannot be equipped here


 Share

Recommended Posts

I've beat the game and have just been doing various challenges and hunting. My fishing pole has become permanently disabled. It says that it cannot be equipped here, no matter where I am. I googled for a solution and some people said that they started nearby combat that prevented them fishing. But I've tried dieing, sleeping, moving to different bodies of water, standing in a boat, on a dock, etc etc. It's just always disabled now. No other activities seem to be disabled, and I can go around doing stranger missions without issue. My pole was also working for a while after beating the game, it just stopped functioning at some point. 

 

My best guess is that I am now cursed because I executed the fishing lady down in Leymone after stocking up on bait and lures.

 

Any suggestions or solutions? 

 

Edit: Googled a bit more, says I just need to manually restart the game through the menus. I'll report back once I get the chance to try, away from my console right now.

These things happen with old age...

Have you tried the magic pill I keep getting emails about for some reason?

Bummer. If that doesn't fix it, then you could try contacting RS customer support.

I have done that once with asking about an ETA of them fixing HDR for PS4. I was pleasantly surprised to get a response a couple days later. Which basically said they were aware of the issue and we're hoping to fix it in a future patch.

THat's what i was going ot suggest.  Always a good idea to exit the game when done playing for the day.

If that doesn't work you can do Rockstar's famous solution of clearing your cache.  

On Xbox exit the game (if you don't know how to exit hit the home button, then move to RDR2 and hit start button, then choose quit/exit)  then hold the power button in on the console till it shuts down, wait 30 seconds and restart.

On PS4 after the initial splash page, when the screen goes black press and hold  R1 and R2 until you see the screen resizing option and darkness setting.
