The Resident Evil 4 Remake features a variety of optional quests, including the Lunker Bass Side Quest. In this side quest, players are tasked with catching a gigantic fish, the Lunker Bass, and selling it to the Merchant. The quest is called “Catch Me A Big Fish” and is available in Chapter 4 of the game. Completing this side quest rewards players with four Spinel and Ptas for selling the fish to the Merchant. The Lunker Bass is not easy to find, but the quest provides a fun and rewarding challenge for players.

Tips for Spotting the Lunker Bass in the Lake
Some tips for spotting the Lunker Bass in the lake include:
- Look for a larger fish: The Lunker Bass is much bigger than other fish in the lake, so keep an eye out for any fish that appear noticeably larger.
- Search near the Boat House: The location of the Lunker Bass is hinted at in a photograph provided in the Catch Me A Big Fish quest, and it appears to show a run-down building in the background. The Boat House can be found in the southeast corner of the lake, close to the corner where the two roads meet.
- Use the in-game map: The in-game map can help identify where the Boat House is located, and once players arrive there, they can use the map to help navigate and locate the Lunker Bass.
- Pay attention to the water: The Lunker Bass will occasionally surface and stick its fins out of the water, so keep an eye out for any movements in the water and approach any larger fish that are spotted.
How To Catch Lunker Bass
To catch the Lunker Bass in RE4 Remake, players need to use a harpoon to kill the fish.
- Aim the harpoon at the Lunker Bass with its fins protruding from the water
- Let the harpoon fly and wait until the water fills with blood
- Get closer to the fish with the boat
- Approach the fish and press the appropriate button on the gaming platform to collect it

Rewards for Completing the Lunker Bass Side Quest
Upon completing the Lunker Bass side quest, players receive 5,000 Pesetas and 4 Spinels as a reward. Spinels are valuable resources that can be exchanged for powerful upgrades and bonuses at the Merchant’s shop. The rewards for catching the Lunker Bass during the side quest in Resident Evil 4 Remake are very appealing.
My Experience Catching The Lunker Bass
Unfortunately, my experience with this quest during my first playthrough was not a memorable one as I made the mistake of not reading the description properly and started aimlessly boating my way through the entire lake, just hoping to catch a glimpse of the Lunker Bass.
Don’t make my mistake and stick close to the Boathouse, as I did on my second playthrough, which took roughly 11 hours to beat on my Future_Bird Steam Profile. The Lunker Bass should be swimming near the docking area; just keep a sharp eye, and you shouldn’t have much trouble spotting it. The bass likes to move a lot, so it was a bit annoying for me to take proper aim and kill the bass with the harpoon, but it is not unmanageable by any means.
