Mission AcquisitionRewards
Skylar Kohrs, upon completion of Gone Fishin'200 RP, $1450, Wonderboy Fishing Rod

You'll find Skylar at the Clagett Boathouse, to the west of Clagett Bay
her injury means it's up to you to reel in the big one!

Reach Clagett Bay

Once you’ve finished the previous mission, Gone Fishin’, you’ll find Skylar at the Clagett Boathouse, north of the Master Bait Shop. Skylar claims she nearly caught the Admiral but a run in with the Cult has damaged her hand and it’s all up to you now to catch the Admiral.

Before you even begin, make sure you have the Fisher King Perk if you don’t already and you’re using the best available Fishing Rod. When you’re ready, head out into the bay and onto a small island just south of the upturned boat (you can fish anywhere but this is a good location).

Fish for The Admiral

You’ll need to put in everything that you’ve learnt to catch The Admiral as it’s a heavy beast indeed. To start with, make sure you’re using the Hybrid Sturgeon Lure as The Admiral is a Sturgeon. Take note of the advice that Skylar gives and don’t become too disheartened if your line breaks, it will take multiple attempts to reel this beast in as each attempt tires him a little more.

This small island south of the upturned boat is a great location to fish for The Admiral.

With the fish in hand, make your way back to Skylar and deliver the goods, in return the Wonderboy Rod is unlocked in the shops and the mission concludes.
