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 would still be intact.


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.

  • Until the update on 6 June 2012, a Tackle box could not hold a Crayfish cage or Karambwan vessel, despite them being fishing equipment.
  • Tackle boxes are not allowed on Entrana even when there are no items in it.
  • Challenge Mistresses Fara and Heriau cannot take fish out of a tackle box for the purpose of challenges.
  • Upgrading a tackle box will not reset the amount of telebank charges used on the previous box.
  • Upon the release of the Arc region, the Tackle box could not store raw tarpon. This was fixed shortly afterwards.
