Air Lucky

Recommended Posts

On a complete impulse buy, I picked up an Air Lucky Spinning wing decoy today at FF. The price seemed reasonable, has anyone had success with these? I know you need wind to work them, but with the current restrictions and probably future restrictions on motorized ones along with the price of the this one, I though what the heck.

I have used them with some success. If you have the wind, they look just like a motorized one. The one thing I don't like about mine is that it is kind of loud.

my friend has a air lucky and it works good if its really windy but its got to be really windy. My dad bought a winduck and it does not have a 3d body but its like a siloet sp? and it has very good bearings and needs much less wind to spin the wings then the air lucky one.

It will work best in ideal conditions 15-20 mph but I was always adjusting it out in the marsh, they tend to run sidways so I attached it permanently to the rod it comes with.

This way I could face it directly into the wind without it running to the side on me, some dry lube on the wing rods helps

We used them last year with good luck and also the Lucky Duck (motor driven) when it wasn't windy. One key to the Air Lucky is to have the pole straight up and then it won't run sideways but act like a weather vane. I put white tape on the underside of the wing to cover up the metal. You can use a conduit to mount the stake over deeper water. We had a hen mallard almost land on top of it, got up and flew, circled back and almost landed on it again.

I agree with the Winduck vote. You can blow on the wings to get them to spin that's how little breeze they take. And they are virtually silent when spinning.

      What lake? I'm in Moundsview so I like hearing about visibility nearby.  Struggling to find clear water this year. Poor visibility on Forest, Clear, Centerville so far. WBL has good visibility. But I hate spearing on muskie lakes. Plus, WBL doesn't have big pike per surveys.

      The only tying groups I know are here in the Twin Cities, and there are quite a few that gather during the winter months.  I'm not sure of any in the SW near you.

      Thank you, for the welcome, Eyeguy!

      The Sheriff issued the permit yesterday - it’s on for next weekend as scheduled!  18 inches of good, consistent, clear ice over a 2 mile swath of Gull/Hole in the Day Bay. We’ll be out for our 3rd year, our 2nd staying on the lake.  Looking to make the Leader Board this year!  Haha! I’m planning on doing a little scouting this weekend for our overnight spot.  I’ll report on ice conditions at least.  Can’t say too much about the fish!  Anyone else?

      Yes lots of truck traffic
    • monstermoose78
      15-23 inches in most areas  Don’t drive through the narrows on blue headed towards little blue you will sink your truck.

      So I don't usually fish for pike often with tip ups and I'm just wondering if dead suckers work well? All of mine died literally after 1 day and it seems a shame just to toss them away, especially when they cost $6.50/dozen

      Try cross-country skiing, fat biking and more
      Winter may have gotten off to an especially cold start in 2018, but there are plenty of ways to enjoy what’s left of it. For an introduction to snow sports, stop by the annual Winter Trails Day extravaganza at Fort Snelling State Park on Saturday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Adults and kids can try cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, fat biking, ice fishing, quinzee (snow shelter) building and archery. Other activities will include ice harvesting, storytelling and an ice globe demonstration. Guided nature hikes will also take place every half hour, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Between activities, visitors can enjoy hot cocoa around a crackling bonfire. Activities will be set up near the beach area. “Winter Trails Day is about helping people warm up to winter,” said Kelli Bruns, park manager at Fort Snelling State Park. “The cold weather months are more fun when you find an activity you can enjoy alone or with others.” This year, for the first time, sign-language interpreters will be on hand to help make the day’s activities more accessible to those with hearing disabilities. Stop by the registration tent for more information. Winter Trails Day is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, retail co-op REI, the U.S. Forest Service and Mississippi Park Connection. Use of skis, snowshoes, fat bikes and other equipment will be free, but a vehicle permit is required to enter Minnesota state parks and recreation areas ($7 for a one-day permit or $35 for a year-round permit). Save time, get vehicle permit in advance
      Although permits are available at the park, people attending Winter Trails Day can avoid waiting in line by getting their permit in advance. Visit www.mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit. For more information, call the park at 612-725-2724 or visit the Fort Snelling State Park Web page at www.mndnr.gov. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
