I often use blingójust in case . Sometimes I don't. Below are two gurnard caught at Port Waikato on blingless traces made with black mono. The bait was salted bonito (with apologies to Chad). That's a single 8/0 hook you see, but they don't all hook so well.
Next one down shows James Benge's bling. I took this shot at Ocean Beach. As I recall, James caught the only gurnard that night . Even Chad dipped outóno shit . Did James's bling do the business? Who knows. We can say it didn't scare them off.
