Those pumps are not self priming. You will either need a self priming pump or get that one below the lake level. You could also try to prime it from above. Here's one option:

I may end up having to use one of those diaphram self priming pump. I was just hoping to use this aerator pimp some way since I already had it. I think the distance between the water and the bottom of my tank may be over 2 fr straight up. I wish I knew how to figure how strong of a pump it take to pull that water that high from lake. I was hoping to make my pump work by back priming from bait tank but that has not worked yet. Thanks for your suggestion! I did not know about those style pumps. All ideas are appreciated !!!!!
