Until a few years ago hooks were not real sharp when you bought them. Many bass and other fish have been lost due to dull hooks. Hooks, especially for worm fishing, needed to be sharpened before using them.

Newer hooks come very sharp but after using them a few casts you often need to hone the point again. You can use a variety of tools to do this.

Keep your hooks sharp and land more fish.
