to Sharpen Trebles!
Johnson - Bass Pro Radio.Com
Ever get a
brand new lure and check the treble hooks for sharpness? On many
hard baits the hooks are dull! There is an easy way to sharpen them
before you have to replace the hooks! Lets start by labeling the
hook points so we have a reference. We will call the points 1, 2,
To start I lay
points 1 & 2 of the treble on my stone. Then I move the hook
back and forth along the stone. After 5 or 6 trips up and down the
stone I roll the treble so points 2 & 3 are now on the stone.
Again, 5 or 6 trips up and down the stone. Then finally I roll the
hook one more time so points 3 & 1 are now on the stone. Again,
5 or 6 trips up and down the stone. Now take the hook and try and
pull it across your thumb nail. If it is sharp, all 3 points will
dig into your thumb nail and not drag across. If one of the hook
points drags on your nail, start the whole process over!! When all
else fails replace the hooks with Mustad Ultra Point Triple Grips!!
