Default What 22 fish eat sand fleas?

I was looking at my surf fishing log book that I kept years ago and I had a list of the different fish I've caught using fleas on a 2 hook pompano rig off the beach. Pompano, Ladyfish, Bullhead catfish, Sheepshead, Whiting, Sting rays, Cow ray, Shovel nose ray, Cobia, Blow fish, Hard tails, Bluefish, Red fish, Green jack, Scalloped hammerhead shark, Leopard shark, Sand shark, Black tip shark, Cow fish, Toad fish, Shumaker? (silver about 6" long and painful if stuck with dorsal fin) Oh and a 20 lb. Jack Crevelle; I saw him side ways in a wave after hook up and at thought I had a world record pompano. Nope, it was the bull dog of the sea! Anyone else have any fish to add?

I too have caught a couple Palometa before. They were both around 10-11 inches long but fought hard and were very cool looking. I've also caught small hake and cusk eels on them in the spring and fall.

That spiny fish you're talking about is most likely a leatherjacket (leatherjack locally). I hate those things.

Where have you caught a leopard shark? Green Jack? Those are Pacific species

you should be able to add red drum, black drum and even flounder...
Also pinfish, spot (croakers) and northern kingfish (aka ground mullet).

I hooked up on a fat guy on a float from Boston a few years back... but he got off so i guess we can't add him to the list. Did land one of those big black diving ducks once, I just always called em "Water Turkeys"
