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?

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)
