dont know about panama city ive never out that way, but pensacola beach has some but i find it harder to find em out there, in perdido however there are plenty, but in both places i noticed right now i really have to put my rake to work and push it to its limits almost digging down with the rake

also in between tides i have to really get wet to find em cause most that ive gotten seem to be a few feet out from the little lip drop off at the shore so ive had to start out in the water a little and work towards the shore. theyre really making me work for em still

Thanks for the post. I think I'm gonna have to fish a little further to the west. Say, south Walton somewhere. I am hearing that there are a few fleas to be had over there.

Thanks again.

finally found some on pensacola beach today, didnt have the rake or bucket or strainer or shovel, and wasnt trying to collect bait just out there getting wasted... but thats another story lol

but i saw one little V and started digging by hand, got down to about 8 inches deep and 5 popped up about an inch an a half long, so im convinced there are likely plenty hit and miss all over, just gotta dig deep and likely gonna have to dig blind and just walk the beach til you find some

Well, I have been here with lines in the agua since 11:30. The fleas weren't plentiful, but I managed to dig up a cupple dozen with a lot of hard work. I am using three dropper knots per rig with red beads and no. 4 owners and a 2 oz pyramid. Could someone please tell me how exactly I should be holding my mouth! I really wanna catch and eat some pompano, but this is getting to be a lot like working for someone who won't pay you.

Frustrated at the beach...
