I don't like mojo's. I think the super lucky is a lot better. It is a lot quieter and cheaper and i think they hold up better.

i hunt over mojos but i think i am going to make change to super luckys, quiter more durable and they spinner faster, they tend extend battery life as well it seems but maybe thats just me, Jonah

I am using two Mojo decoys this year in my spread. They didn't work very well in the early part of the season. Too many local birds who were wise to the ways... Now that the northern birds are coming through though, I've had much better luck.

The only things I don't like about the Mojo decoys I use are the following: Wings are very fragile and I'm afraid I will break one soon. The metal stake/pole they provide is barely long enough for the shore I hunt. One of mine is a little loud, the other is plenty quiet.

I really like my Lucky.

Cheetah - I went to Lowes and got a 3foot piece of angle aluminum and drilled a few holes in it and the lucky pole to extend it.

I like the bigger mojo wings, but all about the same.

you shouldn't have to spin to win smile.gif

Ours is a baby mojo I think...have had it since 03, got it for $25 with a 1/2 off coupon. I avoid bringing it if I can but my bro usually wants it along. The thing is still going for some reason.

Some days they work, other days they don't. Not as effective as they once were, that is for sure.

I use a mojo also, and love it. Nice long battery life and super reliable. My lucky duk has been the biggest piece of crap since day #1.

I have found the spinners ineffective over water but they work wonders in the field...especially if you get several of them going.

If you hunt water deeper than about 18" plan on buying an extention pole, or just duct tape on an old broom handle.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
