Mojo Wing Thang

Recommended Posts

Huntin&Fishin

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.

      Got out Saturday and tried for some eyes and didn't find a one...barely graphed a fish in many areas!  We switched it up and went crappie fishing and found a school in deep water and caught enough for a meal.  We were using small jigging raps.  Great bait when trying to stay vertical in deeper water with a slight wind.  Hope to get out another time or 2 but we will see what ma nature has to say about that...Good Luck- Ozzie

      We are actually in the city of Monticello.  We had to get a building permit for the shooting shelters and MN DNR grant.  As part of the building permit process the city asked us to do some sound testing.  Interestingly, we are quieter then the city standards.The motorcycles and pickups with big tires were quite a bit louder then our shooting tests.  We also added sound deadening material to the ceilings of our shelters.  It helps big time.  Our club has been there since 1946 and predates any housing in the area.  MN ranges are protected when you are in compliance, and we are.  More improvements to come to our range soon.  Great place, great people.

      On the south end...  A fantastic week of fall walleye fishing.  Walleyes in good numbers across the south shore of Lake of the Woods.  Most popular depths are 14 - 24'.  Anchoring up with a jig with frozen shiner is the ticket.  Jig colors in gold, pink, glow, orange or a combo of these colors working well.  Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught.  Jumbo perch and pike in the mix.  Walleyes also being caught around Knight and Bridges islands and structure off of Long Point and Rocky Point. On the Rainy River...   Strong reports this past week and weekend of good numbers of walleyes along with some big walleyes taken.  Fish in spots with current breaks from mouth of river to Birchdale.  There is still a strong current and fish are congregating in areas with current breaks, often closer to shore, behind points or holes in river.  7-16' a good start depending upon the spot.  Very good reports this week.  Have jigs up to 1.5 oz if in the main channel, lighter jigs in slack water.  Many personal best walleyes and sturgeon this week. Up at the NW Angle...  Walleyes in traditional fall spots.  Neck down areas, points and mouths of bays continue to hold good fish.  Jigging continues to be the go to method.  Big black crappie and jumbo perch bite happening also.  Traditional fall muskie bite continues strong, lots of fish boated.

      Anyone ever find one that works? My truck topper light wiring got corroded from the salt spray coming in during the winter.

      Fished zero hours this weekend, but did get the dock raised and took care of a bunch of other projects. Snow shovels are out for my next trip! I'm hoping to find open water in November for a final trip, but know that it's not likely!
