How was he catching them? With his hands? I want to catch ghost shrimp...

I just posted a picture of him above - he was using this PBC pipe plunger thing that sucked them up with all this sand. Pretty cool

We used to catch them a lot for Sturgeon fishing. My fav bait, but not as numerous as before.
