Hello everyone,

Does anyone out there know if there is such a thing?? A jig sharpener???? Seems like to me that the sharper the jig the better the jig...well that’s pretty understandable i guess but my jigs become dull after a season of use and than even though they are still very bright in colour they don’t seem to fish very good unless the squid strike hard...if you haven't fished with a squid hauler, newfoundland style, than maybe you don’t understand, but when squid is around but not biting really good you can look down in the water and see them hitting your jigs but most let go and don’t get hooked unless you have brand new jigs on your lines all the time!!! That can get quite expensive. Just was wondering if there was such a thing!! It would be of great use here in my part of the world!!!

SH - i think a normal hook sharpener would work..........they sell them here in Australia - i use them on my lures (not squid ones). I bought mine for $4.99.......

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

I would think any small diamond file would work the best, and easiest to use. I've never had to sharpen mine....

another option might be to just replace the crown of hooks everyone once in a while.

though this would only work if the jigs could be easily taken apart and re-assembled.

Most hooks aren't that difficult to remove from the fancier fish & prawn shaped lures. Many of the manufacturers use a glue that will soften when heated, and you can put new hooks on with epoxy.

I just happen to have hooks available as well.... :cry:

If you want to sharpen the jigs you might want to think about the time it will take. I would think it would be more cost effective to replace the jigs.
