Oh god yes, that's what they are called. I was getting lice and fleas confused. There is of course a sand louse too, which is not the same thing. That looks more like a white oversized wood louse (or pill bug). God I feel stupid.
Sea-Lice as Bait? - Page 2
I'm debating whether I should let this thread die, or ask:
"Why are sea monkey's mouths sensitive in the spring, did they just come from the dentist?"
Sand fleas and grass shrimp are excellent bait, I'm told. I'm surprised more people don't round some up. Especially with worms going for $6/dozen at so many bait shops.
