Default High Pass Filter vs Unsharpen Mask


I have been doing some research and came across a sharpening technique called High Pass Filter. The settings I use for this at the moment are Radius 5, Blend method Overlay or hard light and opacity of around 45. I am just wondering if anyone here uses this method or is the Unsharpen mask still the way to go? Also I seem to be a bit confused as to the time I should apply the sharpening. In the past I have applied the sharpening as a last step after I have resized the image and saved as a .jpeg. I have read recently that others apply some level of sharpening to the original sized image (in my case I work on a .TIFF file). Any info would be a great help.
