      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Best roto-wing duck decoy?

Recommended Posts

Ufatz

A young nephew asked me which of the new breed of "rotor-wing" decoys is best. I told him you guys would know. How about some comments from fellas who have actually USED some of them. Thanks. grin.gif

Lucky Duck or Robo Duck are both great set up's. That being said they are not as effective as they used to be, there seem to be windows when they work well.

In our area it is right after the date they are allowed to be used and again late season specifically in areas of running water. They are also great for field hunting ducks but remember to turn them off if the geese are coing in as they flare off of them.

Good luck.

I've hunted over a Mojo and thought it worked good. Problem I have sometimes is worrying about breaking them in our canoe after it becomes confined with guns, decoys, and the dog. Now I use two wing thangs which ran me about forty bucks for both. I really have'nt noticed less success from not having a realistic body, I think the movement sucks them in and by the time they know somethings wrong their staring down the barrel of my Mossberg.

Eye balling the Mojo with the folding wings right now. Will never own another with set screw wings. Have come loose even with pliers applied. Anyone know MN regs on using the decoy with flashing LED's simulating rotation? Legal or not? Looking to add a couple wind powered to the spread. Going to get rid of my air lucky ( read as air sucky ). Let's not get this thread going towards a robo vs anti-robo thing. They work... and they don't work. Depends on the circumstances. Choosing to use the appropriate spinner depending on regulations is up to the user.

I've got a cheaper mojo that retailed for $50 but we got it for $25 with a 1/2 off coupon for Gander a few years back.

Just got two wing magic dekes which you operate with a jerk cord and am looking forward to seeing them in action this fall. They have flashing wings and move the water.

I got a mojo and it works fine. But like Big Drift said, when field hunting and geese approaching, take it down. I dont know about the water, I field hunt entirly exept for opening duck which you cannot use the mojo anyway ( right?) wink.gif

And motorized spinning wing dekes are legal after the second weekend? Is that correct?

      Has your tip up been in deeper water, shallower or the same? I’m hoping to get some iced this last weekend of the season. Devils Lake in ND is a good bet.

      Catching a lot of them in 34 feet

      Back on the Horseshoe chain I put in another 7 hours seeing zero pike yesterday.  I must be using the wrong decoys since I can draw in sunfish, crappies, bass, and catfish all day.  Finally caught a pike on a tip-up outside the house so at least I didn't get skunked again.  Looks like that will do it for spearing season unless I can figure out a North Dakota lake to try...

      Quick report from last weekend: Fished a couple midlake reefs in big bay and the walleye seemed to be non existent aside from a few dinks, although, the action was pretty decent. Jumbo perch, tullibee, and a few crappie kept me busy. From hearing other people’s late season reports along with my experience last weekend it seems like a lot of the walleye have moved to different types of structure, perhaps shallower?? I’m not sure, but had very few marks that appeared to be walleye.

      Agree Pike they new there Stuff bought a few guns there and great prices!
    • IceHawk
      Anyone one of you guys ever use Dave Smith decoys?  They sure look realistic but wow come with a price. I like the avian X and I have a couple custom painted from a artist friend that look real good also.  Yes I  realize  a lot of people  don't use decoys. And I realize there is a time and situation for that  But I'm kind of a decoy junky lol! i rarely find my self going with out any.

      I agree Ice Hawk. I liked Sportsmans seemed to have more people that actually fished and knew what they were talking about for help.
    • IceHawk
      Great vid on my bucket list also. I always loved seeing those peacock fisherman throwing  those woodchoppers. Seems like a very aggressive fish I need to target someday 
    • IceHawk
      Bring a scoop of each and try a variety the fish will tell you what they are preferring. 
    • IceHawk
      Boy your lucky sure miss the one in St Cloud  they always seem to carry a great selection for everything. We are kind of limited with only Mills and Scheels . Dicks just doesn't have it for me.
