I was looking for some tips on stopping hook rust. I use good ol Eagle claw classic hooks with an offset shank. I keep them in a Plano 3500 box. But it never fails that after a few weeks all my hooks have some rust by the end of the year some hooks are not use able. I by them 50 at a time and only put about 10-15 in my box. I just started to get circle hooks that look like they have paint on them to stop rust. I would like to here about your experiences on this issue BOC members.
