Do you sharpen your hooks....

Recommended Posts

Often? I do. I've had this sharpener in my tackle box for years. Like the two groove sizes on it, and it works fast and easy. I go thru my most used lures during slow time in the Fall, and I'll touch them up after a day of fishing. I figger if the hook won't "bite" into the top or your fingernail, it isn't sharp enough. ;)

That sounds like something for a retired guy to do. I don't even get time to go fishing, much less sharpen hooks. :D

Yada Yada yada....:tired: :grin:  OK, I'll add the various jobs/years until I took my full time vocation...now I'm at 42 years.  First part-time job at 14 every day after school as a bus boy. Worked all thru high school for money to buy things. I was pushed out the door on disability a few years ago.. A forced retirement. Life can be terrific!  But, I'm not talking about that one. :mad:

Only in open water. They rarely seem to need sharpening in hardwater fishing.

Same for me, although I have a small stone with the groove in my winter box that I use once in a great while.

 

I started working part time a week before I turned 16, went to full time after I was out of school (including 2 years active duty in army) and retired at age 62. That was MORE than enough working for me!!

I bought one of them lots of years ago, still have it, but the only time I use it seems is to break some rust on certain hooks, or shine up some snell hooks before opener. Works pretty good, I haven't had a fish complain yet on a dull hook!!:D

    • I never said that at all but my choice of "grill" or "smoker seems to bother you for some reason.   It's OK if you are a little bit jealous of my pellet smoker.....    
    • How does the cold smoke accessory work? I wouldn't fathom doing any this time of year or does it have a built in ice tray to keep foods cool?. If not any grill or smoker would do the trick in the cold. I'm with others,  having room to hang for long smokes works the best. It is a nice concept though.
    • The fatty was good! Got up at 6:30 am Friday morning to put it on the pellet grill.    
    • Ants are just trying to make a livin.
    • Buy an ant moat. Feeder hangs underneath it. Ants can’t cross the water. While I have never used this, I used to put my cup of grape jelly on a small plate, filled with water. Never had a problem with ants. So, in theory, the moat should work just the same.
    • I grease the pole with Mentholatum 
    • Gotta love wings!! Had to see what this reverse searing is about. Pork chops off to the side grabbing natural hardwood smoke then over the heat... tasty. 
    • Did a bunch of wings in the steam pot for 15 minutes yesterday. Let them cool and then brushed with oil and rub. Left uncovered overnight in the fridge. Tonight I grilled them indirectly over some charcoal and apple pellets in the smoker tube. Finished them off over the coals to get them crispy:
    • I'd just take a $20 loss and use the proper stuff your outboard is specified for.    It's just not worth it.   I feel like this falls into one of those "if you have to ask the answer is no" sort of things.
    • I have a half gallon of arctic cat APV oil, and was woundering if this can be used in my oil injected 2 stroke Yamaha 200HPDI? I bought a new sled this winter that requires C-TECH2 oil, so I have a half gallon of 45$ oil just sitting in my garage.
