How to Make Your Own Ghost Shrimp Pump

Catch Your Own Ghost Shrimp for Fishing Bait Ghost shrimp are great fishing bait for Stripers and Sturgeon. They can be expensive, and during certain times of the year they are hard to get in a bait shop. Make your own ghost shrimp pump, and catch your own ghost shrimp before your next fishing trip and you will have the most fresh and live ghost shrimp possible. But the best part, once you buy the ghost shrimp pump, or make your own, from there on out the bait is Free! Yes, the bait is Free! All you need are a few parts and supplies and you can make your own ghost shrimp pump to catch your own ghost shrimp for bait in minutes. Here’s all the parts that you will need: Take the PVC test plug, and the 2 extra washers and assemble them together. Drill an appropriate hole according to the size of your bolt and of the test plug into the ¾ inch pvc cap. Make sure you do not drill the whole too big. Now you can put it together with the ¾ inch cap. Take your 2 inch cap, and drill a 1 inch hole in the middle. Cut the ¾ inch PVC pipe to 33 ½ inches, and insert it into the 2 inch cap. Attach the T to the pipe. Attach the test plug with the ¾ inch cap to the 2 inch pvc pipe. Insert what you have so far into the 2 inch pvc pipe. Cut the 2 inch pvc pipe in a 45 degree angle on the bottom. The shortest part of the angled cut should measure 36 inches. Bring it all together, and put the 2 inch cap on the 2 in pvc pipe. The 2 inch cap is the only one that will not have PCV cement in case you need to adjust the plug. Take two ¾ inch caps and two pieces about 2 inches long and put them together. Insert the two pieces into the T. After you like the way everything fits together, take your PVC pipe glue and glue it to every cap and T, except for the 2 inch cap.
