legendary muskie lost


Recommended Posts

Hi.

I caught the Legendary Muskie up at Van Horn.  But trying to get back on land i slipped into the water.  I could not find the muskie so went to the mail office just incase it was there, but it was not. I have been trying to re-catch it for 5-6 in game days now but it never appears. In my compendium its showing up as caught 1 out of 1 and 100%. But i never made it to my horse to stow it because of the slipping into the water.  On the map there is no X through the Legendary Muskie so i know i have to catch it again, but it just will not respawn.  I am in the Epilogue 2 as John on 90.6 total completion and using an XBOX X. I have all the other legendary fish including the Northern Pike. Does anybody have any ideas on how i can proceed or is there a way to find that Muskie again.  Was looking forward to going after the channel catfish that weighs around 180 pounds. Any help much appreciated.

yehaa.

 I got it. The catching and losing it problem is widespread. I read many many posts from different sites, forums and such, but nobody had a solution, it was mainly lots of players saying it has happened to them too. I tried using a rowing boat that i found in ST.Denis and rowed it to the lighthouse in  Van Horn. Spent a few full in game days fishing from the boat, but still no luck. I managed to get my horse on the little rock with me but still nothing.  I did read somewhere the horse on the rock  idea did not work for some reason or other. The way to do this if lost is go elsewhere and do other things for about 3 ingame days.  then return to Van Horn Lighthouse and the little rock. save the game then DO A FULL EXIT GAME. When you load the game again return to the little rock and the  Legendary Muskie is back. :)

If true (not doubting it is), that's a great tip.

I have gone and got the white arabian many times harry. Even before i reached the epilogue.  sell it to the 2 horse fence brothers then go get it again  and again.  Sometimes though if you dont  catch it first attempt and it leaves the area it doesnt respawn there for quite a few days.

 

PS. im playing in the Story Mode.

I'll have to go get the white one and compare them. I only have the red one right now, since I usually get a good quality horse in the beginning and stick to it for my duration as Arthur. I save the "collecting" for the endgame with John. Does the black Arabian that can be bought in Saint Denis have different stats from the white one? If not, then there's probably a good chance they're all the same.

Edit: According to the other Red Dead Wiki's page for the Arabian, the red chestnut one is the worst of the Arabians.

The rose grey bay version that can be bought from the Blackwater stables in the epilogue seems to be the best one.
