That is a great point Cranked. Personally, I like to just replace the hooks because I find that sharpening them leads to rusting.

Replacing hooks is the way I always do it. Not even that. You can re-blance your baits differently with different size and brand hooks. Mixing and matching can make a big difference. as well as species of fish you are targeting.

I had some really bad days last year for hook sets. Like zero for seven solid bites :cry: Maybe I should go back to mono instead of braid or get a softer rod? My hooks were new gamakatsus so I dont think that was it.

I really gotta look into sharpening my hooks this week, but I've never done it before. I've always just slapped a new hook on, but with these tough times money-wise, I gotta change my ways. How do you guys do it, and what do you use?
