    Ghost Shrimp Sucker

    Heres a basic pump for those interested.
    2" PVC Pipe
    1" PVC Pipe
    2" Cap
    1" Cap
    1" T
    2" Test Plug

    I didnt measure when I did mine, you can use your own judgement. Theres plenty of "how to videos" on you tube but here the basic pump. Its worked great for me, caught plenty of ghost shrimp last year. Also Im sure you can grab one @ J&M's.






    I found the best time to go is at low tide, look for the holes and start pumping. During the Winter I found them to be closer to the surface but the few times I looked for them during the summer they were much deeper.

    Hope this helps yall.

    thanks for postin'. They really aren't hard to build at all. I built mine last year in about 15min, and its even cheap to build if you have some pvc just laying around. I've seen ghost shrimp out fish regular shrimp quite a few times..especially when the sheepshead show up in early spring.

    Here's a link on step-by-step instructions on what you'll need and how to assemble it.

    Yes we have ghost shrimp. They live in the surf real close to the beach. Look for small "sand volcanos" with an opening at the top.

    Yes, they are resident benthic organisms that actually move very little distance in their relatively short lifespan.
    But the widespread presence of pinfish, small jacks and other baby fish in the surf zone during the warmer months (April through October) render their use as bait practically ineffectual.
