A tackle box is a reward from Fish Flingers Distractions and Diversions. It comes in 5 different levels. Fishing equipment, fishing bait, and fish can be stored in it. It also enables players to send a certain number of raw fish back to their bank every day, and it can be operated to discover the next competition time for Fish Flingers. If destroyed, players may claim another one from the fisherman, free of charge. All items stored in the tackle box will still be intact.
Types[edit | edit source]
There are five tackle boxes, the higher level ones costing more, but having greater benefits. One must have the previous tackle box before claiming the next one.
|Tool||Bait (per slot)||Glove||Raw fish|
The following tools and items can all be stored in the tackle boxes, but some tools can also be stored on a player's tool belt.
|Can be stored in tool belt||Cannot be stored in tool belt|
|Small fishing net||Small cast net|
|Big fishing net||Big cast net|
|Fishing rod||Oily fishing rod|
