The basic tackle box is the second lowest level Tackle box from the Fish Flingers Distractions and Diversions. It can hold up to 2 fishing tools, 12 raw fish, and has 1 slot that can hold up to 250 of one type of bait. 230 tokens and 50 medals are required to purchase this item. The tokens will be spent, however, the medals are kept.
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 50 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.
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|
