Looking for a bait pump for lug/rag, if anyone has one they want rid of.
If not even to point me in the direction of where to get one relatively cheap!
Not too difficult to make by all accounts.
I was considering doing that but the cost wouldn't be much different to buying a new one. Was hoping there was someone who maybe has one that they dont use .....
Yep, thats probably the best option, the cheapest I have seen on sale in Ireland was something like €69.
Did you get fixed up?
Have you used one, I was thinking of ordering from these people : https://www.fishingmad.co.uk/new-mill-fishing/?searchquery=bait+pump
But I have never used one.
I never was too good with digging lug, I did some impressive "earthworks" for a very small return.
The joints are not as flexible now either, so after years away from fishing, I was wondering if one of the things done by these people would be a good buy.
Is it a simple process? Usually I can master things requiring a small amount of skill and co-ordination, but some common activities such as plastering are beyond me.
Lug pumps seem to come in different sizes to suit the skill of the user I saw on a Youtube demo, it didn''t say why or even what size for a total beginner.
I assumed big pump is for big lugworm, is this not the case?
You need a very specific type of beach for these to be effective in Ireland, I used to sell them and found we just didnt have the correct moisture content in the sand. There is no commercial diggers that I know of in the country using a pump and that says a lot. On the other hand I hear if you bring a bucket and soak the area you are looking to pump it can make life easier. But you will get more worms, and faster with a fork.
Many thanks, that answers my question perfectly.
There are few short cuts in fishing too it seems :-)
