Gold Medal Checklist:

  • After arriving at the river, catch a fish within 1 minute 30 seconds
  • Complete within 7 minutes 20 seconds

Speak to Abigail in the camp who will ask you to take Jack out for a fishing trip. Head over to Jack and greet him, followed by getting on your horse. The Gold Medal for this short mission is a time attack, you'll have to be as quick as possible. Consider replaying this mission a second time and skipping the cutscenes to give yourself more time.

Throw the fish back in for a small honor boost.

Follow the marker down to the river bank and head to the edge, pulling out your fishing rod from the weapon wheel (press [R1]/[RB] to access items). You'll then need to select a bait, cheese will do just fine for now and you can cast the rod the same way you would aim a weapon. Wait for a fish to bite and press the [R2]/[RT] button to hook it, following the onscreen instructions to reel it in. Be sure to throw the Bluegill back in the river for a small Honor boost and then catch two more fish to trigger a cutscene. Following the cutscene, mount up and dash back to the camp to complete the mission within 7 minutes.
