Legendary Chain Pickerel

The Legendary Chain Pickerel has recently been sighted in the Dakota River. Fishermen have mentioned that the only way to attract this fish is by using Special Lake Lures. Reports suggest that the activity of this fish increases on sunny days. Fishermen and locals state that the size of this Legendary Chain Pickerel could be over nineteen inches long and weighing around nine pounds.

This is one of the 13 Legendary Fish required to be caught for the "A Fisher of Fish" Stranger Side Mission quest, which count as Collectibles needed for 100% Completion of the game.
