Just my personal opinion,but I have tried two different kinds and didn't like them.One was the Berkly line stripper and hook sharpener and I can't remember who made the other.They did sharpen a hook but not a small one or as sharp as you can do it with just a fine stone or diamond file.

I'm in the same boat as fishhead. The Berkely line stripper is nice for big hooks during the open water season and it is nice for stripping line. But I prefer a file for ice fishing when dealing with smaller hooks.
Good Fishing, Matt.

I have one called Hook Hon-R, which is ideal for Lake Michigan use. I keep it handy so that the multiple lures used (3 per angler in Wis waters) can be kept sharp. We use a ton of spoons, and the Hon-R is a great way to assure the hook is always sharp. It will sharpen a hook so it passes the thumbnail test. And, yes, these are larger hooks.

For sharpening on inland lakes where fewer lures are in use, nothing beats a good file. Especially for muskie fishing, when a triangular point is best on a hook, a hand file will sharpen and shape the hook much better than any rotating mechanical device could ever do. Keep 'em sharp.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
