As you explore Dredge, you’ll come across hooded figures that are looking for you to give them fish. Our Dredge hooded figures guide will give you their locations, requirements, and what you'll earn for complete each of their pursuits.

While completing each of these isn't required, it's definitely worth taking the time - if you want to max out your speed and fishing to 100% the game, their books are very helpful as you make your way through the full game!

There's a lot to love about Dredge, so make sure you check out our review! If you're looking for advice on how to get sheet metal, where to get more explosives, or want to see where to start every pursuit in Dredge, we've got you covered as well.
