Default Thank you forum members - Ghost Shrimp

I am new to the forum but I have been "trolling" for a couple of years now. I saw a few threads about ghost shrimp and it really interested me. Having grown up in Pensacola and fished here all my life, I never knew these existed. After reading these threads, I made a slurp gun and began looking for these little creatures. We were able to find 5 yesterday evening and plan to look for more today, after work. Thanks to all of you that posted about these. I really appreciate all the info.

Default slurp gun

OSAGEBOW, I am trying to build one, how did you make your piston, did you use a seal or is one necessary? Appreciate any advice, thanks.Brian.

You can use a tennis ball, with bolt thru it and washer and nut to squeeze the ball for custom fit.

jmunoz, I had the same question. I guess I am gonna find out this weekend because I will have both frozen and live ghost shrimp. I will let you know.....

navkingfisher, I made my piston from 3/4 pvc. the rubber was from a test plug that I bought from home depot. I did have to remove the bigger side of the test plug and replace it with a large washer. I made 2 guns and so far both are working fine.

Gulf breeze bait and tackle occasionally have them... Give victor a call to see if they are in stock. 850-932-6789. I think he had them priced round $29.00-39.00
