If you do a lot of surf fishing, you are probably spending a fortune on bait. If you start catching and storing your own sand fleas, you will have bait ready at all times and save yourself some cash. Many species of fish like sand fleas and the bait is almost always accessible right at the beach. If you store your sand fleas properly, they should last for several days. With a small investment of a sand flea rake and a 5-gallon bucket, you will be ready to catch your own in no time.
