Long-lining For Snapper Floating Bead Traces

Are Floating Bead Traces better on recreational longlines? We run two 25 hook snapper longlines with running traces to find out. All the traces have Target Snapper hooks snelled on. Half have the traces fitted with two floating bead on the traces. We catch a good haul of snapper to 6kg longlining off the Whangarei Harbour.
