Skylar Kohrs, Dylan's Master Bait Shop - Widow's Creek200 RP, $700

Head to Widow's Creek to find the Master Bait Shop
talk to Skylar to help her out with her problem.

Scare Dylan by shooting things around his RV

As you approach the Master Bait Shop, you’ll witness a feud between Skylar and her boyfriend Dylan. Skylar wants you to help her scare Dylan into giving her tools back. Take aim at the front of the RV and put some bullets into the Beer Keg, Satellite Dish, Guitar and Dylan’s dump tank to the left of the guitar. This is enough to scare him into throwing Skylar’s Fishing Rod out of the RV. Talk to Skylar and follow her, optionally picking up a Fishing Rod if you don’t already have one.

Catch Trout [3]

You’ll notice in the lake that there’s a fish jumping up and down. This is an indicator that theres fish to be caught. Equip your rod and if you have the Fisher King Perk (you should purchase this as soon as you can), choose the Trout Bugger Lure.

Fishing is all about control, you’ll want to cast the lure into an area where you know fish are hidden and then wiggle the lure a little to get a bite. Once you have a bite, begin reeling in but keep an eye on the line, you’ll need to pull in the opposite direction the fish is swimming in order to pull it in and avoid snapping the line. This becomes even easier with the Fisher King Perk as fish will tire quicker and you’ll be able to use optional lures. Once you’ve caught the three trouts that Skylar requested the mission concludes.

Pull the rod in the opposite direction of the fish to reel it in.
