Awesome!

It's interesting how different it is between California and Florida. In CA, you look for dark patches on the sand, little dark streaks of V shapes and you look for those V wakes as the wave retreats. In this video, the fleas in FL are much deeper and the form these mounts.

Pretty cool.


Enjoyed the video... and a little voice inside of me said "nooooooooooooooo" when he released them at the end.

No kidding - considering it was probably about $50.00 worth or more........ if you had to buy them...... Trick is - keeping them alive.....

Almost correct............. actually the top two methods are:

Store them in cool sea water with a bit of sand in a bucket, but change the water to fresh cool seawater quite regularly (their body waste (urine)) is toxic to themselves. (I've tried this...... it sorta works for a day or two)

or

(I havent tried this one - but seems its recommended by many) - store them in dry coquina in a bucket in a cool spot - and change the coquina completely at least once a day.

I was thinking of doing a post on how to simply do a rod wrap repair or attach a new new guide till I saw these videos.

Good stuff - plain and simple.

Even less expensive if you buy the heavy thread and 5 minute epoxy at the dollar store.

For razor blades - get the "Stanley" 5 pack at a local hardware store.

BTW - a bobbin is not required - just lay a heavy hard cover book over the thread to create tension as you wind..........

and as I've suggested before a BBQ rotary motor works great when spinning a finish.......... just Red Green up a system.....

I use 8# monofilament fishing line instead of thread for my "pull thru loops" - as sometimes the thread is not strong enough and parts.

Cheers,

OldTimer

Thanks OT, definitely a video series I'll remember. I found part 4 and 5 to be especially frightening and humbling. The risk of drowning in mere inches of water is very real.
