No filing. I started out using gamagatsu #8 big river bait hooks but switched to 8/0 circle hooks cuz the sharks weren't all that big and it gives u a better chance of gettin yer hook back. We started out mainly using mackerel heads but once they started to show up it didn't seem to matter what we threw they'd hit it.
