A hook sharping file is an easy way to keep your hooks sharp.

A hook sharping file is an easy way to keep your hooks sharp.

Remember to check the hooks on your hard baits.  This is something that can be easily over looked, but a dull or rusty hook can turn a good day bad.  A soft bite on a dull hook and you miss the fish.  The best way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to either sharpen the dull hooks with a file, or simply replace the hook.  Just be sure to match the hooks you’re replacing as close as possible to the original ones to keep from changing the action of the lure.
