The Tackle Box is an accessory that decreases the chance of bait consumption while Fishing. It has a 2.5*1/40 (2.5%)[1] chance to be randomly acquired upon completing Angler fishing quests.

On average, the Tackle Box makes any given bait last one reel-in longer. For more details, see Bait Power.

The effects of the Tackle Box do not stack with the Angler Tackle Bag.

The Tackle Box will not decrease the chance of a Truffle Worm being consumed when summoning Duke Fishron, there is always a 100% chance.

On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, the Angler will not give the player a Tackle Box as a reward if they already have one in their inventory or in any of their Portable Storages. However, if the player has a High Test Fishing Line, Angler Earring, and Tackle Box (or they have the accessory crafted from them, the Angler Tackle Bag) in their inventories, he will be able to give the player duplicate Tackle Boxes.[1]
