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.

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
