Fishing Tackle can be attached to fishing rods to change different mechanics while fishing.
You must have an Iridium Rod to equip tackle. To attach the tackle to the rod, right-click on the tackle first and then right-click the Iridium Rod. Remove tackle by right-clicking the rod.
Tackle can be acquired by either purchasing from Willy's shop at the Beach, getting a treasure chest from fishing, or crafting.
You can equip up to two pieces of tackle on the rod. Tackle can lose its power if being used for a prolonged period of time. A green bar will appear one the tackle icon showing how much you've used up.
List of Fishing Tackle
|Spinner||The shape makes it spin around in the water. Slightly increases the bite-rate when fishing.|
|Trap Bobber||Causes fish to escape slower when you aren't reeling them in.|
|Cork Bobber||Slightly increases the size of your "fishing bar".|
|Dressed Spinner||The metal tab and colorful streamers create an enticing spectacle for fish. Increases the bite-rate when fishing.|
|Treasure Hunter||Fish don't escape while collecting treasures. Also slightly increases the chance to find treasures.|
|Barbed Hook||Makes your catch more secure, causing the "fishing bar" to cling to your catch. Works best on slow, weak fish.|
|Lead Bobber||Adds weight to your "fishing bar", preventing it from bouncing along the bottom.|
