I can normally dig up a few while playing with my kids or see them in the surf when the waves recede. My bro n law has the rake and it works good too.

If its not to late, then go to bass pro shop and get the one they have... It's $45 but its all aluminum and has an expanded metal basket compared to the hardware cloth basket that Walmart sells for $50. Walmart does have a small rake for $20 if you just need it for a weekend use, but if you need a quality rake to last you several years then I wouldn't recommend it. Half hitch tackle sells the same exact one as Walmart.... I was really disappointed to see such a "cheap" rake being sold there, as I was after a nicer one built to last more than a season. Hope this helps, and good luck!

Years ago, I used a steel Kitchen Colander, for the occasional surf fishing expedition.

That is how I was taught, and did so for many years in Melbourne, till one day, I saw a guy using a rake.

As I got older, and the running up on them, bending over and scooping with the Colander got old, I broke down and bought a rake.

Nice man, glad to hear that. Wasn't trying to say that the cheap ones won't last, but more or less saying that the stronger ones should last a lot longer and take more use/abuse. There are obviously exceptions on both sides. Good luck out there! :-)
