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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
