Does any one have a Mojo Wing Thang and if so do you like it (does it help) does it work for geese? or what motion thing in your spread works for geese?  How about ducks? Thanks

stay away from anything spinning for geese. they will flair. when we set a mojo in our field goose spread for mallards its shut off and taken down as soon as geese are seen on the horizon. stick to motion stakes for your field dekes, and get a flag. if you hunt water for geese maybe set up a jerk string or use some of the little hockey puck shaped wobblers when its legal.

We used them on water for geese last year. Did'nt help and did'nt hurt. I personally did'nt see geese flair due to the wing thang. We use two of them where we can during waterfowl season. In my opinion I've hunted over a mojo duck and it does'nt work any better than the wing thang. Excellent addition to anyone's spread and at twenty five dollars it's very affordable, buy one or two you'll be glad you did.

Personally I don't like using it for hunting geese. I have used and yes the geese will often flair. I use it when the sun is going down and the ducks are really starting to fly.

it a spinning wing decoy, but on a pole. Look for "Mojo wing thang" by clicking here and also start your own topic to share information. That ought to help you.

Actually, I believe it rotates back and forth, doesn't really spin. I don't own one however so I could be wrong.

It takes four AA and it's a spinning wing decoy. You can get them from cabelas.

The wing thang actually spins on a vertical axis unlike most spinning wing decoys that spin on a horizontal axis. Hope that helps. I use two wing thangs along with a spinning wing decoy in my field spreads. I think they work great for ducks. I've used them in water on homemade extension poles too but had trouble with it falling over. Dried it out and it still spins!

I've read about using the Mojo Wing Thang for geese, which can flair geese at times. What we really want to know is, how well do they work for you on ducks and how do you use them?

Thanks everyone.

Also, how do you set the Wing Thang(s) up most effectively?

Honestly not sure what the Wing Thangs are - if it’s a new model or not - but I might find out in a few minutes at Fleet Farm.

 

After today I finally had to say we needed at least one spinner today.  Getting one on the way home from the lake for tomorrow.

Last time I went Goose hunting with an Outfitter. They said that they use flags but the spinners seem to flair the Goose off.

The flags did seem to work well to turn flocks that were a ways out.

Are we talking about the goose flappers for wing thangs?  I’ve hunted over flappers in a duck spread before.  No geese came around that morning so I don’t know if they do their job.

 

Flagging has been a staple tactic for years and it does work.

 

I think my new mallard spinner did help us get teal yesterday.

I definitely could see them being effective as spinning wing decoys do work. The spinning wing decoys seem flair geese although there has been times where I've got a lesser or two with them on. I have noticed that motorized decoys seem to be less effective than they use to be, seem to still work good in fields but definitely have seen them flair ducks in water.

      Hey all, just moved back to MN where I grew up after living in the PNW for a long while. I became addicted to fishing rivers and streams out there and have started to check out the offerings in the NW section of the state as of yesterday’s opener. Wondering if anyone has experience in this area and can give me some pointers or just tell me if I’m wasting my time since that’s what I’m wondering right now since I didn’t find any signs of fish. I’m using a spinning rod with Mepp’s and Panther Martin style spinners and went through a bunch of color combos. I started yesterday morning at the Clearwater River in western Beltrami County essentially on the border with Clearwater County where the state has some land and a pretty lengthy easement. Probably a well known area. Beautiful area to walk through. Found multiple holes, but yeah no fish at all. I waded for a bit and decided to leave. I went south since I live closer to Moorhead and stopped at Felton Creek. I’ve read a DNR study about this creek having a decreasing population of fish, but it’s still considered a trout stream although not “designated”. I understand the channelization of creeks in this region ruined fish habitat over the last 100 years, but still find some DNR material as of the last 5 years that reference Felton Creek as a spot for trout. Walked the stream for a bit before I left and headed to Lawndale Creek south of Barnesville. I waded through the AMA on the Atherton WMA expecting to find some brook trout since the DNR has stocked it as of at least 2017. Nothing through the entire stretch besides frogs and minnows. Are there actually fish in these places? The Clearwater and Lawndale are designated trout streams. The Clearwater is stocked annually and Lawndale is supposed to have wild brook trout. Anyone have any experience in these spots? Should’ve just drove down MN200 & 71 to the obvious spots in Becker/Hubbard?

      As of April 15, the Canadian side of rainy lake, from the causeway up to devils cascade, is ice free. I believe that is the earliest ice out. Water is coming up as we had 2 1/2” of rain last week along with 1/2” of snow.

      Ice off Crane Lake April 8, 2021.

      This can’t be emphasized enough. Daily and possession limits are the same. If you catch a limit on opening day you CANNOT do the same on Sunday and bring 8 fish home. Gotta eat them Saturday night or do C&R Sunday.
