A sand flea rake is like a supersized version of a kitchen sifter. It has an extended handle and a sifter-like basket on the other end.
If you’re looking to catch sand fleas in large quantities, your best chance is during an outgoing tide. When the waves subside, this is when you will find sand fleas.
When replicating their natural habitat, you will need a bucket to keep your sand fleas alive for as long as possible. Start by adding some sand.
Once you have identified the spot, it’s time to whip out the sand flea rake. As the water recedes, rake the sand. Then, dip the basket in the water to rinse the fleas.
After catching all the fleas, you need, sieve the sand to remain with the sand fleas and move your catch to the bucket.
