Keep Plenty of Extra Hooks
Not only should there be extra hooks, there should also be a variety of hooks and sizes so you can adapt if your target fish changes. Whether it’s a traditional J-hook or the popular French hook, stock your tackle box with different styles and sizes to ensure you’re prepared to catch the smallest trout or the biggest catfish. A good rule to remember is "you can catch a big fish on a small hook, but you can't catch a small fish on a big hook." So be prepared for whatever the situation may call for.
