I would like everyone's opinion on this subject. Recently, I bought some used lures on E-bay, and discovered some of the hooks aren't in good condition. The lures themselves are good, but led me to the question, sharpen or replace? Other than cost, what are the advantages?

Replace then sharpen!!!

If in doubt, make the change for your own piece of mind.

Size of the hook depends on the lure. You don't want the hooks too heavy or large to change the originally intended action of the lure (usually) and you don't want them too small to be effective.
