Air Lucky on Vortex

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone here uses the air lucky decoys on the spinning vortex's? I heard that it can be done and at a fraction of the cost of a robo decoy.

Everyone's well aware of their mixed results on an air lucky, one wing spins, need lots of wind and post too short. Yet lots swear by them and to each his own.

Also if your using a vortex I would guess that is a no no for public land since it's battery operated am I right?

At Cabelas, they had the air lucky duck going on the vortex and it looked just like the robo ducks on them.

quite certain the air-lucky is NOT worth the cost / hassle of using one.

my experience hunting over them (hunting buddy has one, not me) has been that if you're able to get one wing spinning you are ahead of the game...and that itself takes a mild hurricane to accomplish.

Which cabelas? I'd like to see it with AIr luckies in action. The cabelas video shows motorized robo's. I'd consider buying it if I can use my Air's but the +200 additional for 2 more motorized ducks makes it kind of steep.

bluebill,

Are they on a vortex? I'm thinking of buying one but don't want to upgrade to motorized spinners,

We used an Air Lucky by Edge Expedite and it works just fine. I have a mojo too, and together they seemed to really pull in the birds. Not too mention, it is powered by the wind, so you can use it early too.

I saw them at the Rogers Cabelas last year on a vortex and they looked really good.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
