Swapping stock trebles for sharper ones has been standard bass-fishing practice for many years. Today it’s done for reasons beyond improving hook quality.

I missed two decent size bass – say, about 3 lb. 5 oz each (down to the oz, LOL!) – yesterday on a Whopper Plopper lure. The stock hooks that came with the bait looked very convincing, and sharp enough when I felt them with my finger – well, so I thought. Anyway, I had a decent hook set too, but I still missed them both.
