They cling to your line,clog things up,they can build up so much they add weight to your line. Many change up to a bigger line so they can't attach.Cortland makes a Flea Flicker line that's kind of oval shape and Boold Run has there own too,many just go with like 50lb. Big game. Lead Core,copper,do ok,wire gets some,but braid and your smaller lines and even your downrigger cable parts can get messy.

Had a flea problem yesterday out of I-Bay. They were clinging to any line running vertically. Rigger cable, rigger lines and the braided dipseys. Will put the braided dipsey rods away. PITA to remove fleas from braid. Wire is no problem. On rigger rods we remove 150 ft of mono and tie Blood Run Sea Flee 30 lb for the summer.  20 lb flouro leader to that if you want.

They were just starting during our trip on the 9th of June, our boards lines were getting a few and our leadcores were really bad, so I can imagine their getting into full swing with the surface temp climbing. When we started fishing the 9th of June the surface temp was 56* by Thursday it was pushing 68* we needed to move out to 50ft of water to  find fish and the 30ft temp was 57*
