Are the mole crabs around in the winter? I like the video!
311POPE (5 months ago)
Hello spark fishing and sorry I just seen your post. In my area these crabs are in the surf all year. We usually only catch them during the winter months to fish our pompano and sheepshead migration. Glad you enjoyed the video!!

In 1978 when I first visited my parents in Naples Florida after they moved there from Minnesota. My father told me about sand flea's. Basically they were free bait. For the casual fishing they're easy to collect. Go to the beach, walk into the surf right where the waves break and you'll feel where there's a slight drop off. Take a colander (bowl with lot's of holes used for draining water from food) and scoop into the sand at that point. Walk up the beach and dump it out. Spread the sand and the sand flea's will run like hell. Scoop them up and put them in a bait bucket. Fish LOVE THEM. Free and easy to catch.

Beth Leykamm (7 months ago)
what is that tool that you are using
311POPE (7 months ago)
Hello Beth! We call them sand flea rakes and the larger ones, like in this video, are handmade. Our local bait shops along with Wal-Marts all sell sand flea rakes but they are much smaller. Cheers!

Do sand fleas bite?
They are biological nocturnal. Harmless and ecologically helpful. Please dont overfish.

these sand fleas have a role to play and should be left alone.... stupid people will never learn.
bigone231 (9 months ago)
what sand scoop is that i cant find it any where all i find are the flimsy ones
Jazmíne Estrada (9 months ago)
I see them every time I got to the beach no matter what time I don't like them at all but they are very interesting though it's just my opinion partially because my cousins catches them all the time and makes me run or else they will through them at me

These nasty creatures are full of parasites, so don't even think about eating them.
Why catch these sand fleas , what r they good for ?
Andrew (1 year ago)
Thanks for this video. There are way too many fishing channels on YouTube that are nothing more than guys just showing what they catch. it is very much appreciated that you actually give some instructions for new fishermen. Or older fisherman looking to learn new tricks. thank you

Can sand fleas be on any beach?
311POPE (1 year ago)
I have been on a lot of beaches around the world and there are quite a few that do not have them. Most rocky or stone beaches that i've been on do not.
MrJag2074 (1 year ago)
desde que mire este video, en2016 he puesto en practica estas recomendaciones, y he aprendido como recojer sand fleas. ahora ecojo solo las que quiero!! gracias,, thats a lot of fun catchin this lil. guys, thanks for the tips, very useful, i'll being harvest sand fleas all the time,
Fritz Wilhelm (1 year ago)
They can actually bite viciously, at least here in the Pacific Northwest. Throw a piece of ham into a tidal sand pool, and all the babies rush up out of the sand to chow down on it. If you, or your kids, sit in the pools, they will start to bite you.

Rad Reeling Fishing (1 year ago)
Great video! How long can you keep sand fleas alive in a five gallon bucket with sand and some beach water?
311POPE (1 year ago)
Whazzz up Rad Reel !? Your question is very loaded my friend, we can keep fleas alive for about a week but the moment we catch them we're looking to release alive for fresh ones. There's a lot of factors that go into keeping fleas fresh for fishing. The most important things to remember is keep the fleas cool, moist not soaking wet, in a well drained environment/container and spread out, to many fleas in a container that's to wet and they will die overnight. Fish on!!!

At 49 years of age, I should have known these were not really fleas. I grew up in the desert, the ocean was far away for me :) Are these things tasty?
311POPE (1 year ago)
They are not bad however I would rather eat the fish we catch with them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNHLOg2nb9Y

My older sister said “I feel something on the sand, I don’t like this” I have no idea what it is but me and my family stay in Santa Monica which is Long way and We stay there like two weeks, I think it was in 2016 last year. Last week, I told my sister what it is and I told her “Sans fleas”, she was so disgusted by it and then we i picked all the sand, there were like two little sand fleas, she was like “there cute” and I said to her “there maybe big ones too” she was like “OMG EWWWW”, I was laughing so hard but when it was my first time there I said “It is sand crab” 😂😂😂😂😂 Oh and by the way, sand fleas don’t bite they just crawl in the sand that is it.
