Professional tackle box detail

The professional tackle box is the second highest level Tackle box from the Fish Flingers Distractions and Diversions. It can hold up to 4 fishing tools, 1 pair of gloves, up to 24 fish, and has 3 slots that can each hold up to 650 of Fishing bait. 900 tokens and 230 medals are required to purchase this item. The tokens will be spent, however, the medals are kept.

Telebank fish

A player using the "Telebank fish" option.

The tackle box has the option to take out equipment or bait, check the start time for the next competition, and view games history. The last function is the same as the Fish flingers scorecard. The history is not as extensive as the interface at the end of the game and does not include the experience reward. You can also check the time when the next competition starts by right-clicking the box and selecting Check-time.

An update on 4 June 2013 added the ability to bank 200 fish remotely per day. Otherwise raw fish can only be removed in a bank.

If destroyed, players may claim another one from the Fisherman, free of charge.
