How To Keep Sand Fleas Alive An Extra 3-5 Days (POMPANO FISHING)
By: Joe Simonds on February 12, 2019
It’s Pompano Fishing Time!
Which also means it’s sand flea time (the best overall pompano bait by a longshot in our opinion).
Of course, one of the bad things about sand fleas is keeping them alive.
It’s not like most of us how sand flea pins (like we do bait pins) sitting next to our dock.
But we recently went out to film Pompano Mastery with land-based fishing expert Joey Antonelli, and he shared some amazing tips on everything from how to pick out the best beach to how to make the perfect pompano rig (you can see the full pompano course here).
And one thing he revealed during the course was so unique that we had to share it with you…
It’s how he keeps sand fleas alive for upwards of 5 to 6 days in his garage.
The best news is that anyone can do it.
Check it out below.
The Sand Flea Trick
That’s pretty cool, huh?
Now you know how many of the tackle stores keep their sand fleas alive so long.
It’s as simple as keeping them in a small bucket with holes and then placing that bucket over a larger bucket with some ice on the bottom (but not actually touching the ice or they will die).
And then make sure to wash them off with saltwater at least once per day.
Any other tips you have on keeping sand fleas alive?
