    Do fish see the hooks hanging from our plugs? Many use fluorocarbon leaders for fear of their leader being seen, but what about the hooks hanging all off of the plugs we use? What do you think fish make of them? I'll tell you what I think but I'd appreciate hearing what you think first.happy3.gif

    Fished mainly circle hooks the past 2 years. Had a decent hookup ratio but wondering if J hooks might have gotten the misses. Also, I know with the circles you are just supposed to reel into them rather than set the hook but how long do u let them run with it before doing so?

    Do folks on here think it important (or necessary) to sharpen hooks? I'm talking both single hooks and on artificials. If so, do you sharpen them when new as well, or just once used and blunted? And finally, how exactly do you properly sharpen a hook? Appreciate the input!
