Thanks for the report..and for the fleas: On the Chevy Florida Fishing Report, I heard one of the guys on there talking about how you can "blanch" or dip the fleas in hot water for a few seconds before you freeze themand it makes them keep longer. I have never done it...does anyone else on here do this??

I've done it. It does work. You can also salt your shrimp the night before and it makes them a lot tougher. I have to hit the beach soon!
